Build looks great and good to see a build coming along in my neck of the woods. I look forward to seeing it progress.

Word of warning.....before fully welding the cross bar it might be worth bolting the roll bar down...I tacked mine then removed it to fully weld and found it had warped....

yep i bolted the plates down, welded the hopp to the plates, then welded the harness bar in place. removed it then to weld the threaded bits for the harness and it still moved a bit, only a couple of mm though so not too bad

Hi Richard good to see your recovering well from op and your cracking on with your build. The one thing I'm not looking forward to doing is the wiring
