Hope you recover quickly!

I feel you regarding the wife thing - my wife is far more careful with my health than I am...

Bit of an update, this wasn’t in the plan but what you going do. The body is of the chassis, turns it really wasn’t that hard to do and am happy I did as I can give it all a good going over. Only one little patch of rust that I didn’t know about and that’s right next to a body mount. Any way a couple of pics, nothing exciting :lol:

Is this going to be kept as standard Robbie? Either way it's going to be a great truck!

Looking good. I am hoping to get to this stage soon. Was the body heavy to lift off? Did it take many people? I'm thinking of suspending it from the roof of the garage to give me room to work.

Alex yes mate, I did think of a monster like you have but when I saw it in the flesh, I knew it had to be standard
Joe I did the front on my own and two to lift the body, was so much easier than I expected
