Brilliant. Looks spot on, I was thinking about something like this for mine, need to sort the rust out first but I figure it's as good as having a tent without the hassle of putting one up!

started on me tailgate this morning!
 
 
welded a channel down the centre between the bottom and middle box section and notched a hole in for the T-bar handle
 
 
then tried it in to make sure it fitted!
 
 
then tacked in a small flat with return to catch the lobe when shut propperly
 
 
first click open and pushes lobe away from catch
 
 
next click turns the lobe out of the way! tidy!
 
 
then welded the catch in place and tidied up the area!
 
 
then paneled the tailgate
 
 
then made a start on finishing the sides. just the lower sections to fit and we're good for paint!!! good going over with scotchbrite pads then a wipedown with thinners and see what happenes?

propperly done with the paneling now!
 
 
nearside finished....
 
 
offside finished.... put me handles on too! looks tidy!
so now thats sorted ive taken off the sides and tailgate and flipped it over to add some more fixings to the rack along the sides
 
 
gaps see.........................................
 
 
more holes drilled in and off to paskins again next week for more bits and bobs!
and while its upsidedown again i'll seal the roof from the inside as a belt + braces approach to keep the rain at bay! then i'll insulate it with me polystyrine sheets and line the roof out! and ditto with the bulk head as it were!
