following on from the demount build...............
 
 
decided much to everyones disgust that i wanted a nato rather than the demount! in my mind i couldnt be arsed getting everything out every nite to swap from table and seats to bed, so i recon as the floor area is the same i'll keep all the flooring and the bed cushions and throw that in the back when we wander on our jollies and get a kyham for the cooking and drinking! and when i'm cruising i'll leave it empty on the back until i need to put crap in it for whatever reason!
 
so modified the base so i can fix the uprights
 
 
cut off the 50x50 box and extended the length so as to fiT3x25 instead
 
 
and thats about it at the moment! need to fix her landy so i can have my unit back!

had a creative day today! (well i did yesterday aswell but didnt take camera!)
so first things first....................
 
 
tis cold round here!
 
so yesterday i made the uprights and roof frame.left like this.........................
 
 
cut and welded in two more roof supports
 
 
then started on the tailgate. cut and welded up the bottom sections then put the sides on. packed 10mm around bottom and sides and clamped it in to get measurments for the top rail
 
 
welded up just gotta sort supports for high lift jack and hinge plates (note the ironing board! good for painting crap on stuff)

Now you're talking.

NATO canopies look so usable.
Are you going to fit any insulation for its duel usage? ThaT3mm foil-lined weather board insulation would make a big difference.

syncs, its gunna be lined out and insulated! gat all the stuff from the demount!
zeb,i recon it'll be much more usefull!
& jed, i think the doka will go for a syncro-doka before the canopy goes anywhere! might even jack mine up and get some steelies on it for the time being!!
