    Lights and wings.....although my DRL main lights were sent without the DRL versions so they need swapping when the next ones are delivered...

    Getting there.... finally the roof made it on, as I haven't got my door tops from the UK yet we decided to stick a bikini hood on it for a while and go jeep style. no doors....

    So roof on, hood on, front seats in and seat covers made to match those on my Disco.

    Upgraded to a Puma bonnet and checkerplate on their as we'll be safari on the bonnet *when lions not around...

    Like this........

    So this is where we've got to. Most weekends from July...... still got to get all the final bits done. Internal cosmetics will have to wait as I've run out of cash, but engine is sweet and now final electrics and usual tinkering bits.....

    Weekend is a shake down to make sure all kind of running, then I guess learning and figuring out what is great and what needs tweaking.

    Hopefully helped with the pics

    Load it onto youtube and then copy the link onto here is the easiest way.

    Cheers

    Back after a day of testing - some tweaks needed - rear springs - some sensors (changing thermostat to a manual one for chance of accuracy on the every overheating V8) and some of the wiring for the top lights to get done. All in all however not too bad for a first go.
