Ok after getting back from the show and sleeping in the office freezing my thingys off i have decided to pull my finger out of my bottom and get on with the over lander conversion so next year hope fully i will have it at the show.

so i have started the conversion this week i stripped the body off and laid all the bearers and welded them up so lots to do this week roof and sides ..

Hi Tuggy,

Looks good and looking forward to seeing the completed vehicle and it was good to chat at the show a few weeks ago.

A good start to the conversion nmate, although you may have to move the rear lights. Twisted Evil

Looks as if you are going to make a box body to match the width of the cab, but have you considered building an oversize box to gain that extra bit of space?

Even better, so it wouldn't be permanent, with your skills you could easily construct a slide-out section to give yourself some additional width. Unlike my RR ambulance which would be a nightmare to add a slide-out section (I did actually consider it at one stage) the slab sided 101FC would be the ideal base for an additional section on one or even two sides.

Come to that, you could even have a slide-out rear. I'm sure it would look a lot better than this hideous thing!

Build yourself some LED lights Tuggy, fit and test, seal with epoxy pouring compound to make them waterproof, job done, fit and forget them.

If you wan't to build some custom ones, they're very simple and you can make them to any shape to fit any space, give me a shout and I will run through it in detail.

Looking great Tug m'lad. Am I right in assuming that eventually there will be a rack above the cab? Just ripe for it, that's for sure.
