    Havent had much of a chance to work on the old girl, but been slowly doing little bits here and there.
    Made up the bottom midfle of the bulk head section, still needs to be trimed to size.
    Front door where hinges bolt to were all rusted out, made some new backing plates up and also some new hinge pin/ mirror arm.
    Couldnt find correct size pipe for the centre heater tube, so made up some repair sections to suit
