I keep looking at my driver side A pillar - and then think of something else easier to do. Watching with interest - keep the photos coming!

Thanks guys.
Clay yes I'm pretty sure it is Stark but they must be also supplying through RestoCountry.

Really appreciated the advice Blacky, two eyes (or ears in this case :lol: ) are better than one sometimes.

Funky:- I will post as many photos as I can, away this weekend so no progress, there is a guy on the FE FC Forum that is doing up an ex PMG Van who has just done this but hasn't really shown the whole process at least not yet so I will put up what I can.

With the #1 Cross member is I can fit the chassis rails and really help support the body for when the roof gets cut and the firewall replaced.

To quote Frankenstein "There is something at work in my soul, which I do not understand." :eh: :eh:

The second part of that quote applies well to your work:

"I am practically industrious—painstaking, a workman to execute with perseverance and labour—but besides this there is a love for the marvellous, a belief in the marvellous, intertwined in all my projects, which hurries me out of the common pathways of men, even to the wild sea and unvisited regions I am about to explore." - Mary Shelley

I think I must add another book to my reading list. My upbringing is obviously incomplete.

My own experiences are closer to this :mrgreen: :

It was a safety related purchase - very sensible of you :thumbsup:
When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Nice one Neil,
Just sneak it onto a shelf at the back of the shed till it gathers enough dust so it blends in. :thumbsup:

Yes. He is selling the inner sills and A pillar repair panels through RestoCountry.
For those who might need it, he makes flexible brake hoses to order to. I have a couple on my ute.
Top fella to deal with too.
