First proper day back in the workshop today and we're making progress, one side is all welded up now so just a sill and 2 arches left to weld then it's time to get it ready for the Mot, hopefully we can get it done for Billing :doublethumbs:

Also got the 31s fitted, going to move the front axle 25mm forwards and do some bumper trimming for clearance. The rocklobster is getting delivered tomorrow, should sort the gearing out. thanks Matt and Andy :hands:

I was over with Scottie and Ralph today.

I even helped a little in between standing round being distracting.

Looks even better than it does in the pics in real life and my old tyres look great in their new home.
