    Cheers Dan.


    Bad news is , I think one of the little fellas fell out last night while they were pushing the rig around the yard in a drunken frenzy.

    Sooo ... it might be time for a door.

    Door will be mounted on pins so that I can run without it for when they are not around.

    Couple of wild slashes of the 4".

    A few whacks with a couple of hammers.

    Some pigeon shit dabs of weld ...

    ... and hey presto !! , the boot lid will sit flush with the body.

    Well on one side so far anyway :D

    I figured I'd better do the other side as well.

    If there's any interest I took a series of pic's to show the steps. Took about a 1/2 half in total to do.

    Tucked out of the way.

    Plenty of leg room and doesn't interfere with me reaching the brake pedal.

    By the time I put a mushroom top hat on it you'll never know it's there.

    In case you are wondering ... low branches in tight country and these blokes tend to make a mess of things.

    The air filter would have been at ground zero.

    Seeing as this is more of a Cleatus dirt floor build 'cause there aint no shed and it's about to storm something decent here shortly ... this'll likely be the last for today.

    All arc'ed in ...
