Got some paint on today! Not much but gave me some inspiration. Before the short side and corner go on for good.

Fine tuning the fitment of the panels I'm nearly happy with them. Preparing them ready for 2k epoxy panel bond and welding. Hopefully have them on at some point this week :D

Finally got the corner welded in. I bonded the short side to the horizontals over the weekend and finish the welding of today. :compress:

Not posted in a while. Haven't had much progress really tidying up a few odds and ends before cargo floors go in.

Engine Lid D post bracket?

I Suspect those were pictures I posted when I was looking for one?
Hard to find..
I did find one from a wanted advert on the SSVC forum

I have a "rusted" one and i have been looking ever since for a better one!
Mine will be shot blasted, built up and fitted and will be usable..
I looked on thesamba.com...posted a wanted advert and had one or two replies but all who replied honestly replied that the example thay had was ROUGH...
I have the best I could find but I am still looking to improve mine!
If I see one I will let you know!

Hi,

I'm still on the hunt. I do have a few leads but until it's in my hand who knows. Please if you come across one let us know. I'll do the same.

Thanks
Rick

There may be some good reason why this isn't possible but surely at the cargo floor could be bonded rather than welded to at least every other crossmember to save some time? JohnR
