I've just realised it's 12 months since you dropped your Jimny off at Redacted 's, when he said it would be ready around Christmas time did he tell you which Christmas? :laugh:
Chassis does look awesome, let's hope it is ready for our trip to Belgium and France in October :)

Maybe but it certainly wasn't this time last year.
But realistically with the stripping and disposal of 2 trucks and parts to make room to start building then its only really just started .
What maters is its started in earnest and I will be doing my best to do it as fast as time allows. Only me and mike know the turn of events and we are the only ones that need to know. This build thread wasn't started for that.
Its not titled "spotlight on Redacted " and mike is realistic and knows I cant shut shop to do in constantly. And a few pics doesn't really show what's gone in so far .
And I certainly don't. Have time to do a blow by blow account.
Keep watching and you will see things take shape

Ok a bit of a post on here just to set a few things strait.

When Mike first came to me and asked me to do this build he said can it be done in bits as and when he can afford it so i agread that it could have a spot in the workshop and i would do bits when i had quiet times and he had some funds. We agreed on around a 3 year time span as between us we wanted to build somthing special
Fast forward and when the truck was dropped of it was little more than a painted chassis with the biggest winch trays i have ever seen (more like a jcb bucket) and a body that was plated up with big thick heavy plate. And a diesel engine that was just sat in place and nothing conected. Most other parts were simply missing. That truck was abandoned as a total wast of time.

So smoggy dropped his truck off and it was decided to strip that and use it as a base for the build.
Then Mike managed to find the funds much quicker than expected and i said i would try to acomodate the shorter time span but ive not managed to accommodate it due to normal workload comitments. Then add to that having to take some time out for personal and health problems.
The build is now back on track.

So all those that are telling Mike they think ive ripped him off and and abused me on social media then they are out of order and miss informed.
He hasn't paid "me" thousands ! he has paid thousands for parts. What he has paid me doesn't even cover minimum wage as it was a big advertising exercise.
Ive not posted this for a big debate just to clear things up for the miss informed.
Thanks
RW
