It's been along job so far because the lads have only worked on it at weekends but it's going to be well worth the wait, watch this space cos I've got a feeling things are going to move on quite fast now and thats the body finished. Just need to re wire, re trim, refit the interior, drop the suspension and replace the turbo. pale Very Happy Very Happy

I had to get the wheel hubs drilled out to 62mm at a local engineering shop, then I had to fit 10mm spacers and extended wheel studs (from Brick-werks) when I get the van back I just need to work out how to fit the centre caps.
