    some more work has been done, but not too much. the panelbeater has gone one holidays with the fam so he wont be back for another week. he assured me that he will get stuck into it, and finish it as soon as he gets back... will try and get some pics ASAP

    won't be long guys, can't do anything right now as John is away. so will have to wait until early next week.

    i guarantee to have some pics next week............maybe :umm:
    hopefully we get some more work done instead of fartearsing around drinking beer and just looking at it, as this is how its been for the last few weeks :lol:

    ok here are some progress pics from todays work..
    this side is almost ready for undercoating, just a bit of panelbeating to do yet...

    today we replaced the lower section of the sliding door, put thin layers of fibreglass bog and regular bog on and did a bit of beating. I also straiightend out the rear bumper which is also ready for a thin skim of bog.

    another thin layer of filler and a shite load of sanding and beating the side lhs panel is ready for undercoat.

    although in the pics it looks like the panels are full of filler, they aren't, we have used metal and only done it over the welds and to fill high spots etc.

    well he's been welding most of his life like this so I'm not going to question him, he tells me he still has 100% vision....
