    Bit more done - finished round the screen pretty much, just going to put one more coat on soon then that's done. I've got a very thick 4 litre tin of silver in the shed that i used & starting to think maybe silver with black round the windows might look the trick on this, i picked the tin up a while ago on auction for $50 & never opened it. It's not a bad silver so will be putting some thought into that - just have to sort the roof lining next then can chuck a screen back in her.......Well back to it:rockon:

    Well the rain held off today so that gave me the chance to finally get the screen in this, worst part of doing it was cleaning the old sealent off the windscreen rubber. That took me over an hour to sort, apart from that she was easy as to fit & i'd sure recommend it to get rid off the rust trap. Just have to get some sealant & that'll be that job done, i took a few pics of the days effort so i'll chuck those up :rockon:

    Well got a rev up from the mrs yesterday telling me she wants things finished up & tidied up outside or i'm in the dog box for christmas so thought i better pull finger lol, got a couple of saw horses the other day so i put those to use over the last 3 hours & cut up the floor for the back & stained it. Came up awesome to & i like the colour of the stain, might get a flat polyurethane or what ever it is to go over top to protect it more. cut out for the spare wheel so just have to hinge that but that's easy. Was going to cut a piece of ply to go across the front to support it but after getting it in i think box section tubing will be the way to go & just make a cross bar, that way i'll have more storage under there. Still got to get some framing to build the sides yet but that's no biggy - anyways heres some pics :rockon:

    Yeah the stain came out better than i thought, should look sweet once i get the sides made up. Something different to the norm that's for sure......

    have you thought about putting a coat of clear or a clear gelcoat type of stuff,then it would be hard wearing and easy to clean

    Yeah i thought about that today - a satin type varnish or what ever it's called. Not up on all the house painting stuff but yeah would sure be the way to go - my original plan was to carpet but seeing how it looks i wont be bothering now. Back windows will be getting limo tints so the finished article should be sweet.....
