ok, heres some pics, but be warned its still 4x4, but lower than stock.
need to get the back down so the nut in middle of cap is at bottom of fender.
front a little more, but may need some longer connecting rods.

this is what was left of the window surround!!!
not a lot.




plan of attack was to remove hood including rear window, then cover with aluminium sheet but still having a opening hood section at front.



a few more fixings are needed.









got to paint this metal panel in between.





got to get some black boat acrylic material to make new front hood section.



I want to fit an oval rear window.
