Springs, axle, shockers and wheels are back on. Flipped it up the right way ready for a wipe down and etch primer in the tub tomorrow






Camo patches will get done once the tub is painted in drab and covered.

That looks rather nice.
I take it you are going to put electric brakes on it.

I am, al-ko off-road electric, the magnet is a little different and holds up to vibrations better

Finished the paint today. I'll paint the camo patches some other time because my boss is pushing me to get it out of the workshop.
Next week I'll wire the lights and get temp rego and tow it home and finish the wiring there.

Finished hooking up the lights today and took it over the weigh bridge. 540kg. A bit more than i was hoping for but i towed it home on temp reg and it tows well. I can feel it behind the perentie but its not very noticeable. I still have a few more things to finish like brakes, fitting tailgate and latches, gas bottle holder and a few other bits but its almost there.

This is really a great result. Maybe you covered this already, but getting stabilizer legs at the rear?

Not at this stage carzee but in future i think i will. Ive left the corner SHS tube open at the bottom and top  on all 4 corners to allow for additions. Eventually id like to have a rooftop tent on it and canvas walls and build it as a dedicated camper
