Consider the source... it is a trick question. Don't answer it!
Looking great, Craig. Thinking we all have progress envy as well.

A self etching primer - but there isn't a lot of bare - most of it still has that yellow stuff from the factory if the paint is gone - over painted surface i use a normal metal filler primer -

A question for the officianados (aka Bill) - I have a bunch of "holes" in the aluminium everywhere - do I fill them with stainless nuts-n-bolts or screws, or with grommets, or with plugs?

What is the preferred method?

Obviously the ones required to pass wires through will be grommets...but there are some that don't have any function - most had nuts-n-bolts in them. If I stay that course should I paint the nut-n-bolts too?

TIG welding is your friend!

TIG welding is your friend! Grind down and smooth with a D/A. Alternatively, I have found that ACE hardware carries an AMAZING supply of stainless fasteners, grommets and goof plugs.

well I braved the cold today in the garage...actually used the propane blower heater to make it bearable.

Worked on the doors, they are now done and prepped - now I need to get new window tracks and trim for them.

Getting held up now, as I need to paint it. With this cold I have to wait for some nicer - above 50deg days - weather so I can open the garage doors and blow it out as I paint. I have probably killed some brain cells with the priming I have done

Extremely lucky that the weather cooperated enough that a little propane heat in the garage helped to enable me to paint. Now the interior is done! VERY happy with the results. I now have to get all the rubber/gaskets etc and then put it all together.

Long pole in the tent is the Rocky Mountain Parabolics kit (shocks, straps, ubolts etc) - then the biggie....the rear crossmember.

I am going to wait until spring for the xmember though....so I hope to have it at Feb Happy Hour...albeit the exterior will be rockin in primer until I hit up Maaco or Earl Shieb!

Sorry - bad pictures...better ones to come.

Dam Jonesy... You are putting all of us to shame... Good Job!

Hopefully in 10 years I'll get this done to my truck. HA!

I thought I should upload a few more pics...I have the sides on, roof goes on today. I am waiting for some parts from the UK, RovaFarm, AB & RN.

To Do:
1) Power booster - servo and master cylinder for disc brakes
2) replace all rubber boots, grommets, hoses etc
3) refit floor, tunnels, seat box
4) refinish seat rails and reattach
5) redo sills and spray
6) restore wings - both of them require it inside & out
7) fit new (refurbed) window wiper units
8) redo lights ensure all markers etc work
9) refit wings
10) details details details...
11) drive it to Feb Happy Hour - I hope!!!!!

Looking good. I nearly called you earlier as I had to run out to get welding gas, but the Leesburg TS didn't have any so I ended up going to Warrenton.

Well, I needed 100% Argon (TIG) and since I'm borrowing Ed's rig, the least I can do is get him more gas!

OK - now I gotta take a break - BRONCO'S vs the Brady Bunch in an hour and a half - gotta make the wings!

So, all is ready to be bolted in - just gotta get the floor kit from Trevor as the PO threw all the hardware away?? Seat box is secure, all other panels are just sitting there...waiting.

Sure is a complete PITA to refit stuff and not scratch the nice new paint job!

Awesome. I hope the second picture is the more recent one because in the first you have the tunnel under the front piece and that's not right. The second one looks spot on.
