Hi All,

Long time since an update but a lot has happened

First of all I'm under the pump to get the car finished for Shep, i thought that was a tough deadline, but then we had this situation present itself! (shouldn't talk like that the wife and I are over the moon!)



So the panel work is complete and i signed it off today and the paint will be on it tomorrow morning. Overall a top body just a couple of high and low spots that needed sorting and a bit of straightening here and there.









The base is already stone guarded and painted



Will have the body back on Friday, lots has happened to the front and rear end and i will update in the next couple of days once i finish a couple of other things.

Shep is still tight but i have to the end of may before Junior arrives so i should make that one.

Great news there Ryan  8) Congrats to you both  :o

And now, way down the priority list, but the Moke is kicking along well, must be keen to see some colour on the body.

Cheers

Now I am worried, Ryan was looking closely at the kiddie seats in the vac of my Moke over Christmas.

Thanks so much everyone for the kind words, not sure what we are in for but as long as it likes wind in its hair we should be fine.

And yes DEV i was checking out your baby seats, that why i asked all the questions on mounting etc. ;)

Ok so i have had a shocker of a week, lots of stuff going wrong, but there is nothing like the return of a car all shiny and newly painted to lift the spirits!!







Shame its pelting down with rain, the poor thing will be stuck outside all night getting wet.

First up congrats on the important stuff, no not the new paint, the pending birth. I hope mum is doing well and the baby is doing what it should.... It will be the last time ;).

Oh, the Moke looks good.

Cheers,

Well a lot has happened on the moke but i must admit im about 2 days away from waving the white flag and admitting it wont make Shep (registered any way)

Lots to fill everyone in on, but basically i need too much stuff done by other people to feel confident i  will be finished on time eg. windcreen, exhaust, tune and roadworthy, and i have noticed i am starting to rush a few things and therefore having to do them twice so i need to slow down.

Anyway a pic to show i have progressed.
