  5. cheers para.
    yeah its not too bad, could use a little more cleaning up. but not bad for an hours work.

    I got in from work today and the sun was still out! :O
    so I finished cutting out the parts to make the rear bumper over-riders.

    [​IMG]

    then I thought.. the welders not too noisy. So I welded one up.

    I've also just received some lovely trim that fits between the bumper and the overrider. to cover up any un-even gaps.
    ill finish them off over the next week and hopefully get them fitted to the bumpers next weekend.
     
  6. Nicely done and these lighter nights are a big bonus for sure

  9. We found a similar access hatch to para's but it had been covered in about half an inch of seam sealer! - started to repair but seems sensible to go for the access hatch option

    Great work BTW
     
  10. liiiitle bit more done tonight. only did an hours work or so. because the weld dressing is noisy I don't want to upset the neighbours.

    got the 2nd overrider welded up,
    [​IMG]

    the pair together..

    [​IMG]

  11. cheers mate,
    dont know if your interested... but i have quite a lot of that metal spare if you need any for repairs? its the right profile so may be easier than using flat sheet metal.

    can send you as much as you need for the price of postage. i know how hard it is to find the metal of the right shape lol.

  12. Yes please! - I actually get over to Norfolk every other week so happy to pick it up if that's more convenient. I'll send you a PM. Mr B
     
  13. I only did half a days work today as i'm a little tired, but I started off with finishing off the cab floor repair I started the other week..
    [​IMG]

    then I blobbed some of the holes in along the rear NS window.
    [​IMG]

    cleaned up and painted my new tank straps. My ones have been repaired so I got these off of Dubscum a couple of weeks ago.
    [​IMG]

    I randomly decided to take a flap disc to the cargo floor to get rid of all the surface rust, there was a big patch in the middle so I stripped it and primed it.
    [​IMG]

    got the surface rust off the windscreen frame and primed
    [​IMG]

    then I moved back onto my rear over riders, I got the welds dressed, and then primed. Then fitted the rubbers and the delux trim I got off Ebay.
    total cost so far for all 4... £30. Not bad at all!
