Wow, great interest there and glad it might be useful.

Just the folding part took around 1 hour. A lot faster than if it was welded as even the pros quote 1 hour per foot for prep, weld, planish and finish off.


Doing the last few things I was asked to be done. Cutting down the window surrounds. Taking 5.5" out of the height and have to add to the length across the top.


Fortunately the profile is pretty much the same all the way around so can use what came off the sides to fill the gap left at the top.


Window surround, or garnish, done on the passenger door.


Easier to keep things straight and level by clamping down on the bench and checking along the edge of it for straightness. Use a steel ruler as well.


Here now you can see why leaving that difference in door width at the join would not have worked. It would have shown up terribly!


Windscreen pieces needed doing as well. One side done and the other still to go.


Last of the fabrication work done.


Doesn't look much different than when it arrived here less than 2 weeks ago! But is a hell of a lot more structurally sound and complete.

Might not look much different but all of us know how different it is! Nice work as usual and an interesting distraction from yours.

Many thanks Dave and Jimmy.


The owner thought the front needed lowering more to fill the front guards. I suggested less rubber rake so mocked up one of the rear wheels on the front. Raised the front 3" the same as it would be fitted with the the 6" taller tyre and think it looks good. Maybe even slightly smaller tyre would work.


Pushing it out past my cab and now mine looks huge by comparison!


Well mine is 9" wider and 7" longer than his.


Out in the sun waiting for the pickup.


Looking mean!

It was picked up a few hours ago by a very pleased owner so my cab is back in its place ready to be worked on again.

Just been reading through this thread - study break/procrastination...

Marcus - you, Sir, are a craftsman.. Awesome work and some great teaching points.

Thanks for sharing your passion.
