A bit of a spring extravaganza really to kick start Pievan progress...
I still can't cope with how easy it is to roll the engine out of the shell :-)
To get the shell into a bit of shape Neil and I used the hydraulic ram from the engine crane to push the gutter seams back out while welding a spot of 25mm box along the inside. After a bit of filling and smoothing and painting and filling and smoothing etc I think it's looking a lot nicer.
Main bulkhead in place and cardboard templates for other panels.
Cockpit feels quite homely with comfy MR2 seat, harness, pedals, steering wheel and test carpet on the bulkhead.
The engine bolted to the box with the trimmed adapter, bunged back into the panelled and painted engine bay.
An expensive driveshaft flange for the Renault box, and a pile of Ebay bargain ford Scorpio Lobro joints.
Trial bodged cut'n'shut Scorpio shafts
Van looking sort of OK :-)
