It is a cracking build and has evolved over the years.

Its the build a lot of my mechanical mods were influenced by.

Yeah those are the wheels and tyres that will be going on my lwb.

The bulkhead only goes in during the winter to keep it a bit warmer :lol: it's only held in with 5 small bolts so it's easy to fit and take out.

Are you feeling ok Jordi? Compliments?
:er: :hahaha:

Glad I've inspired a few trucks, I'm gonna be sad to see this go after the lwb is done but onwards and upwards! If it wasn't for this Zuki I wouldn't have half the skills I do now, just can't wait to put them to use building a buggy :guns:

Rust......I swear it appears out of nowhere sometimes :hahaha:

Don't expect my usual standard of repairs here mind, MOT Monday, I need it done quickly and well it's my sj, there isn't one straight panel on it, the doors don't fit properly, and the whole body is twisted slightly so I don't care what it looks like.....and it'll just end up dented more :hahaha: I did actually get rid of a few dents today though :thumbup:

That was today's work, the su was also rebuilt by my father while I was doing that. got a bit to do tomorrow as well but she will be ready for the MOT.

Considering I haven't touched it for 5/6 years it's not bad really but it flew through last years MOT and this has all came through in the last 12 months :hahaha: then again there was a lot of mud in the cavities behind the body mount and in the rear corners so it's no surprise they rusted out from the inside.
