Mission roll cage accomplished!
Floor painted with white smoothrite - it certainly made a difference and makes the car look so much better. Having taken out all the carpets and trim, along with lots of sound deadening three were lots of different colours on the floor pan - much better now it's all one!
Getting the dashboard in wasn't too bad actually as it's much easier when there's less of it and aesthetics don't matter so much.
Getting the wiring sorted took much longer than expected though and over an hour was wasted trying to work out why the driving lamps now wouldn't work. The reason for this was a dodgy connection which, I am pleased to say, was a BL connection and not a Randle one!
More rally gear being located here - the footrest which has gone back where it was for now but will have to be moved to suit Sarah when time allows.
Then there's the hand-held fire extinguisher which is now actually located further forward than shown as it would otherwise have been tucked under the navigator's seat!
Finally - mission accomplished with the roll cage fully in place although there's a fair bit of tidying and fettling to be done yet.
