There have been some big changes happening on this end. not only has the pajero been fully closed up on the back. but in order to save money and get more time on the project i made a few drastic life changes. basically I gave up renting, bought a 40' sea container and modified it to be a workshop. pimp, now I have a place to work. got it shipped out to a mates farm where I am every weekend anyways. then moved my ass into a share house with another mate. sold off most of my belongings, which was jsut house hold items anyways. I kept my tools and my vehicles. keep it so I can leave at a moments notice, feels good to lighten the load to be honest.

anyways here are some photos of the setup to tie you over till the project updates come around again.

all packed up:

away we go:

workshop end of the container, jsut finished that bit yesterday, putting in shelves and a tyre rack tomorrow:

Started sanding the corners down. a few bits will need a thin layer of filler, but warpage is really hard to avoid welding 0.9mm steel. I am quite happy with the look so far.

its also hot as hell out here, pushing 40's so due to fire bans and what not there will be a bit of a lack of updates. as you can see the can is not overly shaded. haha

Sea-tainer looks good, great little set up!
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical

Thanks mate

Back of wagon is fully welded as of this morning, but more grinding to go, then onto the interior. making good headway.

came to a conclusion on the tray, gonna run just a standard 1800x1800 flat try, ally, and add a tool box to one side for valuables. gonna go the light and simple route, as this rig will see some ***** trails I figured a expensive canopy would jsut anger me when I eventually smashed it
