That wheel well on the rear box looks quite a bit smaller than the normal hi-cap. Is that just the tires making it look smaller?

I guess I could change the fender wells but I just don't think its necessary when I have another set of beadlock wheels which are slightly narrower, these tr wheels are really cool looking and the tyres are great but they are quite heavy, and since I have 2 spares to mount to the rear doors it's too much weight..

Shane,

Not that you need ANY inspiration, but did you catch the 110 build in January LRM?

Shayne,
Very cool build so far.
I'm still working my Disco mushy brakes, thanks for your offer of help on ExPo.

Question: do the Recaros sit a little lower? Just wonder. I am 6'2" also, and doing Puma dash on my 110, so legroom is a concern.

Our build is also taking consideration for our Australian cattle dog, Healy. But she just had re-occurance of tumor on throat, and may not be with us for long haul, dammit. Other than f'in cancer she is still full of piss and vinegar at 12 years old. Have to balance out how much we love this mutt, her quality of life, cost, possibility of recurrence, and not let our selfishness of wanting her around negatively impact her.

Greenbull: if all goes as planned, you may see that interior build here in the states, Coastline Campers does phenom work.

The recaros don't really sit lower but doing a custom install allowed me to move them back where I wanted them..I'm 6'2" also and I definitely got an extra couple of inches legroom now..and I can fully recline them if I want to take a bit of a relax...not while driving though..lol..
My wife is picking up 2 heelers today from Melbourne Florida and we are fostering them until we can find them a loving home...we are members of an australian cattle dog rescue society..

------ Follow up post added January 17th, 2015 09:48 AM ------

Started on the rear seating and sleeping and storage unit last night..the seats will be used mainly for storage but for quick naps on the side of the road or while doing long drives one can sleep while the other drives... The base cushion will come up and locate forward and the back cushion will drop down and fill the gap where the base was..giving me 30 inches of flat sleeping area.. Left the webasto cabin heater where it was as it has a big hole in the floor where the exhausts etc go through..should heat the whole cabin nicely and draw air through the seat box..

If you can sleep where the 60/40 was you are a better man than me. Out of curiosity do you sleep curled up like a caterpillar ?

Lol... Yeah Doug, it ain't happening for me..I can do it for a very short time if I'm really knackered... But it's more for the redhead..or if I just want to lay down and read in cold rainy weather without popping the roof tent or need to carry something large, also so the dog can use the whole rear area.. Personally I think it was done just as an exercise for myself to see what I could do..lol..

So here's the rear seat box..

And then the back wall..

In this one you can see where the webasto pops through the front..

From memory the interior seat box measurements are 11x11x56.. So should give me plenty of storage.. Haven't decided what it's for yet..same with the back wall one..

Since it's just the 2 of us on this trip the whole floor area forward of the seats is open floor space as well, perfect for our clothes storage.. When we need to transport kids or customers or guides (required through a few countries now) they can be put in the back..(the clothes , not the guides.... Opening up the seats like normal, I will have 3 seat belts in the rear also..

Also mocked up the side tool wall compartment..tools and recovery equipment will be mounted to the wall with quick fists or the like, so easily accessed by lifting the side door.. The bigger items will go down low (like the pullpal and high lift, tirfor etc )

Freakin cattle dogs are like Rovers, mind of their own! Good on ya for doing that. Our dog is not social at all, so it would be a bad idea for us.

Like the seat box, and the heater is a nice add. We need to source a good used one, either Webasto or the other one I can never spell. And for f's sake, who gives you all the extra hours in your days? You get more done in a few hours than I do in a week.

One more thing..the CT in Sandglow. need an opinion. All I have ever seen are the patina'd versions. When new, is the yellow obnoxious or too mustardy? Wife and I are torn between Sandglow with Black roof and a few other color combos.

NoteStupid to ask an Aussie if ANYTHING is obnoxious, lads I have worked with took GoPro's into combat, all you heard was gunfire, grenades, cursing, and giggling!)

Why all the plywood?

Working with sheet metal isn't that bad, even if you were to just do 90║ bends and pop rivets for the sheeting and angle iron for the frame.

Plywood builds remind me of my early years in the Army where the parts trucks and other random shop trucks were M998s with crazy plywood boxes and hinges attached with excessively long wood screws. Perpetually soggy wood with vinyl stapled over the whole thing to keep it "weather proof".
