So I was going to do a as I go thing but I got distracted.
I started 2 weeks ago and now I'm just about to cut the rear window out and finish the paint on the cab. Any questions feel free to ask, there is a lot I've learned doing this that others miss or don't tell you about but it's pretty straight forward, would be he'll of a lot easier having a garage or doing it in a factory.

Does anyone know how to run the reverse without going through the wall? And can you just cut the rest of the wiring and tape up the ends?

Looks good, if i may mention 1 thing that top plate with the mounting hole is welded on the outside as a butt weld and ground back looks nice but the weld is almost not there anymore and appears not to be welded on the inside either.

Nar it was a corner to corner fillet, they are about 10mm wide i just smoothed the outside to get a nice radius that's why I didn't bother welding inside, you can kinda see it through the paint here. And plenty of penetration.

What did you use for those welds, stick or MIG?
