    Ask the landlord if yu can put up a garage. Might be cheaper in the long run? Could possibly take it with you if yu move.

    I just popped back in for a brew, I've been on it for an hour now and it looks like I only got as far as pulling the tarp back :(

    Lost me bit of steel bar, can't find the big thick extension lead, lost the bag of air line fittings, found my paint brushes swimming in the front foot well where the rain is still getting in :(

    Never mind, it's still windy here but nowhere near as bad as it has been and at least the sun is out :D

    Thought about that but I think it will be more beneficial to move inland TBH with the amount of development they have planned here on the island and with the M27 becoming a free car park I'm just not sure staying on the island is worth it long term.

    Anyhoo I'm back off out to play :cool:

    Smashing day on it today, the weather was hit an miss but the wind was noticeably less than it has been all week, got the body mount on and spent a bit of time doing a few other jobs too, very happy, still didn't get as far as fitting the rear quarter as I've lost the bloody mastic tape and it took me most of the day to find the pot of black paint :rolleyes:

    Few piccies, some from last time some from today.

    IMG_20190317_150719.jpg

    Body mount fitted today with new bushes, holy smokes I will be ordering up some more bushes for the other side and replacing them as I couldn't believe how badly these were squashed and how much the new ones lifted the body.

    IMG_20190317_141740.jpg

    Even my overhead welding came out quite good.

    IMG_20190317_141756.jpg

    Everything was ready for the black top coat but I couldn't find the tin so I put the wheels on this side :)

    IMG_20190317_181150.jpg

    Then found the paint when I dug out the torque wrench LOL :rolleyes:

    IMG_20190317_181202.jpg

    Looks like my winch bumper is going to need a little bit of adjusting to gain enough clearance when under articulation :eek::eek::eek:

    IMG_20190317_181218.jpg

    Was busy clearing up a bit as I have gotten bad at just launching stuff everywhere and burying stuff and not knowing where it all is.

    But I am quite pleased with todays progress :) Even if I did spend far too long searching for stuff :rolleyes:

    Bloody good work that. I have to do a similar bit to rear but on filler side. It's looking very clean! Have you patched cross member?

    Yeah where the body mount sits I had to cut a lump out the bottom, back and front of the rear body cross member so that the new body mount had a decent bit of metal to weld the new body mount onto.

    I forgot to mention that when I made that repair section for the rear quarter it was a bit of flat sheet and I marked the ridges of the pressings in the panel and made a 3/4" slit in there and tacked it on the highs and beat it into the lows and then welded it all up, in hind sight I really ought to have just cut that whole panel out to the top and made a whole new piece, if I do another I'll do it that way and stitch some angle to stop panel drumming.

    Good thread and some nice fab work , I’ve got to page 4 at the min , wiring was a bit melted at the start . I’d be interested to know how the thermo top is working I’ve been thinking of fitting one to the 90 as I’m doing something with the heater but not sure what yet and was thinking of installing one and running a heater off that , also looked at a D1 heater but don’t know the size of them and whether they’d fit .
    Cheers Ian

    Cheers man, not fitted my Webasto yet as the cutting and welding has go the better of me LOL

    I'm sure you will enjoy the thread from page 4 onwards, I'm a master at buggering this thing up :D Oh and lets not talk about me and my "make work" projects where a good idea goes south :rolleyes:

    You ideally want one of these for your Webby, stand alone heater matrix and fan if you're going to run run it as a water heater, I quite fancy one too :)

    Some more of the on board air bits turned up, this is the mini water separator :)

    IMG_20190318_213700 (1).jpg

    Little manual water drain off for any moisture collected :)

    IMG_20190318_213757.jpg

    Mock ups of the mounting brackets for the pump and the tank seem to need a bit more work to get everything a little more compact but I can always get some more rubber vibration isolators to give me a bit more flexibility.

    Will be nice to get it all fabbed up and fitted when I have finished the weldathon on the passenger side :cool:

    A rubbish day on it today, got some done but it was a lot more tedious and time consuming than it need have been and not to mention getting dragged away to the family stuff, but hey ho.

    Looks like the winch bumper needs trimmed :eek:

    IMG_20190323_171656 (1).jpg
    Mark it up and that's 80mm that needs lopped off.

    IMG_20190323_171702 (1).jpg
    Quite a stance on the new compared with the old :)

    IMG_20190323_171623 (1).jpg
    Got the front wing back on and snorkel plumbed back in.

    Comparison of the wheel offsets.

    IMG_20190323_171606 (1).jpg

    I'm so going to have to do some radical alterations to the body work :oops:

    IMG_20190324_133401.jpg
    New lip seal on the rear wheel tub in preparation for fitting the rear quarter panel, sealed to stop water ingress.

    IMG_20190324_133336.jpg
    Boot floor will be going in real soon so thought I'd better get some primer on the floor supports.

    IMG_20190324_133341.jpg
    Used some caravan panel jointing mastic tape to reattach the rear quarter panel with the humpteen bolts and screws.

    IMG_20190324_133440.jpg
    For the first time in many months it's finally all back together, but talk about a faff trying to get it all lined up on me todd :( but get her done I did :)

    IMG_20190324_175831.jpg

    Getting there slowly but getting there all the same :D

    You wants these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Jumbo-Ve...865056?hash=item1c5805e2e0:g:lkEAAOSwyQtV14Af I ordered 2mtrs as mine's a 3 door and I'll still have some left over after doing the other side :)

    I likes the new wheels an tyres but there is a lot to fitting them and extended arches are going to be needed but can't make up my mind what ones.

    Only rubbish from the side of wanting to have gotten more done but I did get the new panels painted an seam sealed inside as well :D
