    Have definitely considered that after you suggested it a while back.
    I can see how it would work well for say a 100mm extension, but still not convinced about it for a longer one (eg 200-250mm). Since I want some extra space inside the cab for storage (not just for legroom) I'd probably have to do a door extension AND the back panel extension....

    When you say "extend" the doors, you mean make them wider? 250mm wider door on a Landy with a fresh coast of paint could maybe land you a cameo on Pimp My Ride.

    Longer.... yes I think that's what I mean. Too many dimensions to keep track of.

    Pfffft - doors are for wimps. Why not just cut most of the cab away, make an outline of the profile you want in tubing and clad it in removeable canvas panels, a la Mini Moke style?

    SteveG's 120" Tourer

    Well, I did say to expect progress to be slow.
    I didn't expect it would be 5 1/2 years before I made a proper start on it

    Other than accumulating bits and pieces for it, in that time I've moved it to 2 different properties, and also moved around our current place a dozen times.
    Its about to get a good pressure wash in preparation for coming into the shed for stripdown.

    Couple of things that have arrived recently for the project:

    Firestone air springs for the rear




    Steel tray that will get modified to suit. Cheaper and less work that building one from scratch.
