Parts just temp fitted onto chassis. This is really turning into a great build. A bit fiddly in places but worth it.

Cab and wiring done. The cab was very fiddly to fit but eventually I managed to get it to line up and sort out the steering rack and the wiring.

Floor placed loosely onto chassis. Looks pretty good. I know the colour is not quite right but I'm only building this part work as it comes for a customer.

Issue 44 the seats. I was expecting these to be made out of rubber but they are hard plastic!
