That looks amazing. I have a little way to go before I am removing the cab. I think by now having been fiddling with the electrics, I may just remember how they go back. I need to get my Mog mechanically sound and roadworthy first as I need to use it to move some kit to be restored before I can turn my attention onto sorting out the cab and doing a final paint job. Looking forwards to seeing more from the restoration. Must have been so satisfying to get the paint on.

Tim, I did the same. The mog had been sat in a barn for nearly 14 years before I got hold of it, deffinatly get it up and running to start with. You'll soon find out what needs doing. I'd been driving it around for nearly 3 years before a broken spring and leaky hub seal finally made me start the rebuild!

I'll find a pic. The metal work wasn't too bad under the various layers of paint!  :D
The usual, under the headlights, roof hatch, under the window rubbers and the passenger side floor (Windscreen leak..) have all had new bits welded in. The roof was full of filler, allot of the dents pulled out quite nicely...
Hmm, that is only the etch primer, and under seal. A lap of primer then top coat to go!

Next will be the engine, I've a re-honed block in the boot of the car!
The list goes on and on from there..  :)

Back to the bare bones eh, do you have all the components needed to completely finish or are you going to have a fair bit of time on the internet sourcing parts
