    Bodywork is certainly looking a lot more car like now, very satisfying to watch.

    We folded some steel to make our boot floor and rear chassis.







    We cut all traces of bmw boot out, as we decided to make our own as it will look better

    It is brilliant, and when it gets an engine to match even more amazing. I check back regularly hoping for an update.

    Loving the progress!

    Thanks for being so active in sharing the pics and progress, hope all goes to plan in the next stages.

    Definitely a huge undertaking a project on this level, but you're the envy of many on here, when finished I'm hoping it rivals the one that Guy Martin bought (sure you've seen it)!

    Ive seen it yes, i like its 3 door conversion, i also want it similar, but to use as many volvo bits as poss, i like the cool amazon dashboard and clocks, and wont swap it for a newer look, as in my opinion it ruins it, also ruins its sleeper effect !

    That's fantastic, really good that you can get the original floor well panels still!

    Quality work.

    Its a VW T3 motor lid, id lyin about, looks ok to me.

    We are now about to join our lower rear quarters, to our new spare wheel well, thus the rear end will be done completely construction wise, we need to sort a fuel neck as our amazon was opposite side to our bmw, volvo one is now blanked off and we need an idea, but well cross it as and when,

    Our motor will be back soon so we can play around with it, it is been mated to an M3 trans, we need to make some motor mounts, should be easy,

    Also i need some wings on back order, supposed to be end of september now end of year ?

    But what can you do when your dads a butcher, and you dont eat meat ?

    More soon.......
