Blimey!
Looks like the steering wheel is on the wrong side! :evil:

Great job on the patchwork repairs though [Thumbs-up smiley needed here]

it is indeed:laugh:
Thanks for the thumbs up Max.
The rust repairs where a gaint pain in the behind.
I am happy that the rear is rust free though.
And while the interior was out it was the perfect time to add led interior light and add gaint speakers (12cm:P )

Ahaaa - I was wondering what that 'box' was all about! - I thought you'd just made some kind of boxed-in area like a load-liner to match the seat height when they're folded.

Excellent
