She's nearly there....
« on: May 19, 2012, 19:57:13 »
Been a productive week.

Wings on, wiring completed, seats in, seatbelts secured, floors in, wipers fitted, doors on, alternator replaced (why did it have to fail after I put the front end back together?), overdrive oil replaced, transfer box oil replaced, gearbox oil replaced, axle oils filled (I won't say replaced as it turns out both were pretty much dry.....), and got insurance sorted.

Still to do:
Glaze both door tops
Front bumper clean up, paint and fit
Front apron paint and fit
Rear tub paint inside and out
Underseal mud shields under front wings
Put number plates on
Get MOT........!!

Getting excited now :-)
