Thanks guys, I apretiate the apretiation! And your absolutely right Robert. To be honest I'm only posting a fraction of the work on here due to time and remembering to take pictures of progress and stuff. But I'm videoing work too and am hoping to make a "restoration build video" once it's completed

I'm still going on it. still plodding along with this dam metalwork... This is the bit I've been working on making nicer recently and I'm fairly happy with how it's looking.

Also would anybody happen to know if the rubber suspension bushes are the same size on a sj410 as an lj80? Ones for an sj seem more readily available!
