    Martha looks fantastic Guzzler. Nice timberwork there. Are those screws in the interior cards tech screws?

    Wow what a difference the pop top has made....great work inside and out, looks like she's even got a brand new concrete slad to mark her spot on:)

    The screws are just wood screws with rounded washers, Im no expert on these things so that might not be the technical names for them !!!! This is my 1st project so I am learning as I go !!!!!

    I hated the roof right from the word go so had to change it asap. The hole that was originally in the roof must of been cut for the roof this guy put on it, so I had to extend the hole by about a foot to fit the new roof in. It does make it look soooooooooo much better !!

    I did have a nice shiny new bit of concrete, rest assured it is not the same colour anymore !!! Adds character I think !!!!

    Wow. Looks fantastic. Amazing what a bit of elbow grease and brute strength can make! :)

    Gday mate, just wondering in the last pic it shows how you've made a seat alongside the rock and roll bed. Just wondering how does the rock and bed slide forward when that seat will be in the way? Cheers Joel

    If its anything like mine it will go up and over and sit flat on the seat next to it. :D

    Not the best photo but you get the idea.
