Attacked the bump stop damage today, heated the bent sub-frame up to red hot and used a drift to knock out the indents.
once they were bowed the opposite way reheated and flattened the area out with a metal dolly behind.
They came out really flat and I also bent the lip up again to a nice right angle for strength.
Then I cut out some extra plates from one side of a piece of 2mm galv RHS.
Measured the holes and drilled them before welding on, aligned the holes and welded around the new plates.
Now the area is about 4mm thick and not likely to bend again.

Front sub-frame was in a bad way after seeing it sand blasted
The top of the suspension was all cracked (probably from the dead donuts) ground out the cracks and fully welded around the tops of the frames.
Also the rear tabs weren't that healthy neither, looking a bit thin and cracked from the movement up and down as there was no floor for a while, so decide to fit a couple of extra pieces for strength.

Started to work on the dash a bit cold in the workshop.
Managed to obtain a Corolla KE70 dash a shortened it to 1100mm to fit the Moke.
Covered in the vent holes with 6mm MDF and straightened the front out so it will fit against the window and allow for the demisting vents.
Covered it with some polar fleece and glassed it over.
Just need one more coat of resin and ready for a sand an tidy up.

I am looking forward to seeing the dash fitted up. Do you have any mock up photos? I am still pondering on how to do mine. It looks like your solution is a great option.

Cheers,

No I am making it up as I go, I have just bought on ebay .uk a Rover 100 steering column to fit to it.
No real plan even the steering column it has a universal on the bottom so I can modify the length and position if I need.

Thanks for the idea
I thought I would do a rough mock up of the dash, not sure of the dash colour but think I will keep the backing black.

Put the new floor in today, screwed it i and then tac welded in place.
Body was a bit twisted, choked it square and fixed off the floor.
Just have to cut the fuel tank access in and then fully weld it it in fully.

Looks great, very professional. Gotta love a rotisserie,makes these repairs so much easier and no weld splatter in the ears.

Cheers,

Not really, had it on the rotisserie flat upside down and choked each corner until it was parallel horizontally front to back.
Then screwed the floor on using self drilling screws until it was firm then tac welded it together so the screws could be removed.

Looks really good Andrew.
