    Hell that is no good Steve, bloody nosy neighbours should mine their own business. Your laws must be tighter over there then ours as I would thing 99% of our cars get worked on in the home garage at some time and as long as we keep the noise down at night or early morning, things are fine.

    Medical grade stuff is usually made out of great quality metal, stainless steel, etc. Nice score Steve. Our ongoing joke at work is medical equipment is like government tools they cost 4 times as much as anywhere else!

    Not quite right Mark.
    DIY work in a home shed is fine with N Z Regional and Local Councils; but as soon as you set up a commercial operation (doing work for financial remuneration,) it's a completely different scenario.
    In a commercial operation there has to be washing and toilet facilities, off-road parking, access for the disabled, and a whole raft of other rules and regulations to comply with.
    How do I know this?
    Been there, done that, several times.
    Involving different local bodies.
    Some Councils even demand two toilets, one for men, the other for women.
    And I would assume that it would be these types of regulations that stymied Steve's mate.

    Sorry to hear about your friend's situation. Neighbors can be a blessing and a curse. Your cab is looking nice though. Nice cart for the cab. That is a great score!

    Oh, I didn't think of the differences between the home handy man doing a build for himself against the guy doing it for a living in a commercial way. Thanks for pointing that out JB. I know that one friend got stung for spray painting cars in his garage at home due to the neighbours complaining about the smell more then the overspray coming out of his extraction fan set up. The council closed him down from doing that so he rented a commercial build in town to do his work in the end.

    A couple of people asked about the body dolly so here's what I did, I cut it down by removing the bed lighting grubbing and then shortened it to suit my cab,
    then I found 2 pieces of 60mm x 30mm box and drilled holes in them to match the body mounting holes in the floor, 4 pieces of studding was cut and bolted into the box section, then some scraps of tube were cut to space the body off the box section, nuts and washers added and bolted to cab floor.

    Bit of a quiet day for a change so it let me get on with the stonechipping of the Willys cab floor, first a couple of layers of glassfibre was laid down to seal it all off, this was then buzzed off flattish , then 3 coats of black epoxy primer and then 2 coats of black Gravitex stone chip [emoji106]
    Workshop up to 80F now so baking nicely

    Upol product Steve ? Looking good though and tell me, you are heading into your winter up there and my Brother who lives up in Middlesborough told me that since daylight saving finished the weather had turned to shit. So you must have good heating or the weather is still not bad down London town way.

    Just looked thru all 65 pages, wow I really like how you choose to make stuff instead of buying off the shelf, very impressive. I'm really jealous of your lathe, never used one but have always wanted one, it makes so many cool things possible. Of course you have to know how to use it. Great fabricating, it inspires me to do better with my metal work.

    Yes whip a Upol product, gravitex is the single pack version of Raptor, I had to use it because I can't take the chance with 2k stuff at the moment, I've used it many times before and it's a tough durable product.

    Yes autumn has arrived and temp is 6C, my workshop is heated and thermally lined so never goes under a nice 20C

    Got the dash finished today, the ends were slightly different so had to be modded a bit










    I'm just about ready to epoxy the cab and prime so I mixed up some old primers and painted the inside, this keeps all the dust sealed and gives much nicer environment for fitting up.
