Glad you chose a motor with a smaller lower unit this time. My back is still killing me from shipping the last one

Yeh I'm going to get rid of the White trailer thingy. That thing is more trouble than it's worth tbh. I originally bought it to tow behind my bike. It looked ideal at the yard but one I got it home I realised it was wayyyyy to big. Looked tiny beside the bus where I bought it from lol anyway I've moved it so many times in the last 3 years I think it's time I flick it now that I have the tender.

Roof bearers all welded, bulkhead panels screwed off, downlight and speaker cutouts done. Left a 50mm overhang on the centre recess so it can hold blue LED accent lighting. Not long until the leather gets fitted and the gloss T&G feature inserts get fitted then I'll jump up on top, pull the roof sheet off, install the insulation then glue and screw the sheets down then glass the whole area off before cutting out the two fwd roof hatches

Looking good Matt! Like your motor too. Nothing like having a warranty for trouble free operation....until the month after it expires. I've always wondered how they do that.....

Greetings,
Mr. H. OUTSTANDING young man! But, and there's always a but...Not a criticism my friend, just an observation. My concern would be one of two things...Either your overhead space with the insulation is going to be super well sealed against ANY moisture intrusion OR you're going to make some provision for ventilation to allow any moisture to evaporate. THAT would be my only concern. I think I've mentioned this before but it's still on my mind. From the pictures, I think the last thing you're going to have to worry about is structural strength. Keep at it mate.
Ah, one more thing. Have you considered the stability with so much weight that appears to be up so high?

I took 'Tank' the tender out on the weekend for a test run. I even had a special guest tag along for the ride...

I can't believe how fuel efficient this Merc is. We drove around for 4 hrs and I can't tell how much fuel we used. The tank gauge didn't leave the full mark so I opened the tank and the fuel is almost spilling out. It doesn't go anywhere fast but it'll run on the smell of an oily rag

Hi folks,
Windows and doors got delivered during the week which was exciting. Not long till she's at lock up stage.

I picked up the Lining boards for the ceiling this afternoon and will fit them tomorrow.
