Not a great deal done over the past two days a bit more dry fitting done to ensue all parts fit nicely.
There is a gap between the back doors bigger than I would have liked and a cupel of panels I'm not to sure of yet also big gaps hopefully when everything is tightened up it will all come together nicely.
Phil the man now has his very own pair of boots. :D
Take care all and keep safe

Regards Steve

Great stuff Muttley, that dry fitting seems to take forever but it's so necessary init. So new boots for one little man and a 251 for the other little man who needs a pair of overalls! 8)

Good Evening gents
A little bit more done today all the assemblies now made and all dry fitted together.
A good shake of all the body assemblies and most of the gaps between the panels have disappeared.
Take care all and stay safe.

Regards
Steve

May have to use an old figure for the driver and cut the legs down to make him fit.    But that's a job for another day.

Made a start on the rear doors today added the door stop to the right hand door and made a start on solder filling the holes for the door frames that are not needed.
