Thanks Luiz.  Roof is now back in place.    I used some filler on top the roof,  sanded that back and then shot some primer on.   I wanted primer on before i started on the sides of the roof.   I think it makes it easier to see what needs doing.   I wanted the door frames in place before i reshaped the sides of the roof.    The roof is slightly wider then what i need but I  did this knowing the side would need some reshaping.   I did the same thing with the door frames so i can have the smooth look.   The door frames are peaces of 2mm square sprue.   I made sure they are the same angle as the lower door frame.   Will need to remark and reshape the door.   This should be the last of major body work.         I have glued in the firewall and have the body and interior/frame fitting well together.       Have started doing the suspension mods.   On the rear springs i flipped the mounting points.   I adjusted the actual spring mounts as well.   Upfront i noticed a space between the frame and the inner fenders, which i hadn't changed  anything there so i guess thats just how the kit is?   i decided to fix this by zeding the frame by 2mm.   I was going to use a dropped axle but with mounting the axle on top rather than underneath the springs plus zeding the frame will get it down lower.    Want to build an interior as well, and with the cab  to the frame fitment sorted i can start on this.   Will be tuck n roll style using different half round sprue.     Thanks for looking.   Comments welcome.

The picture with the wheels is just a mock up not where they will be sitting.

Little more progress here.   Roof is coming together.   Still need a little more work there.   Sat the seat in place and will need some adjustments i think.   Thanks for looking.   Comments welcome.
