I've been doing the crappy bits on the shell at the moment, like unpicking the scuttle pannel, and welding the sills. I've a few hours left of sill work, but once that's done, then I'll start on the driving position. I need to keep myself on the annoying little crappy jobs until I get paid, as I'm skint and there's loads of little jobs I need to finish. After the sills are done, I need to cleane up and prime the roof, and build the very top of the front bulkhead. As a treat for when I get very bored…, I'll make the second rear diagonal, and the harness bars!
