rusty old cab re-fitted so I can fabricate the rear bodywork


Locker housing a 200L LPG tank


Fuel tank mounted and covered by side paneling


l/h locker finished except for a door


tested the wheel lift with my Skyline


R/h locker cabinet with "hide away" door


With the rear body fabricated I thought I'd check out the replacement cab

Guess I should have looked harder,

 it was described as "has had small repairs to floors"

both floor pans had very poor repairs which had to be removed

other than the floors this cab is good.


as the old cab had near perfect floors, we removed the whole section


replacement floor section


decided to fit the floor in two sections, firstly the L/H floor


followed by the R/H section, finished of in black waxoil to protect it


inside the floor is now protected with stone chip paint and lookin good


also fitted the freshly painted valve covers

great to finally start priming the body


both sides now ready to top coat


both rear light panels in black

3 good coats of yellow 2K paint applied
