That looks very tidy, wish I had the patience for a project like that.

Looks really well, Keith.
Have you any photos of the rebuild as there is always information, tips to be gained from them.
For instance how you mount the hi-lift jach to the door pillar....

Regards,

Hi Rodger

As I get time I will cut n paste my rebuild thread onto this forum

To mount the hi-lift jack requires 3 bolts (used as locating studs) in the floor board
And one 14mm hole drilled into the side of the body :x :oops: , on my next 40 I will not use this method, I will use a made up bracket that will screw onto the wndscreen hinge bolt holes

Eish ...

Keith, when you get to Kezi, please say a mental 'hello, yebo, kunjane' for me. Spent a lot of time there as a kid on a ranch, and had some very very close ranching friends killed there back in the late 70s. I learnt to drive there as a kid of 9 in an old Series LR (run, duck, hide... :D ). Still miss them, and those good old bad days ...

Are you going via Plumtree? My old school - what a blast ...

I'll copy across and sort the Kermit thread for you.
