    Power steering is pretty much finished. Toyota 60 series box, mix and match of Toyota pattern shafts, hiace bevel box and a swap to Rover pattern shaft through the rag joint, to a RRC steering column. Std Isuzu pump on the motor. Hopefully the pressures etc all agree with each other...

    Accelerator pedal also done. The std series pedal has a shaft through to the central footwell area. But this area is taken by the radiator. So I brought the shaft out through other the side of the footwell and made up a bracket to hold the cable. There is a small void here next to the side panel. It seems to work great.

    Air filter mounted up. Its from a NPR truck so certainly big enough... It did require resetting of the mounting bracket angle to get the inlet pointing vertically up.

    I 3D printed an adaptor for the top to reduce from 160mmdia down to 89mm for the intake pipe. This will govern the rear of my cabin as the intake pipe will run straight up the exterior of the cabin to a Ram inlet above roof level.

    You're not mucking about now are you?

    Was just wondering the other day how you were going with this and if we'd see an update soon - you've certainly been busy.

    Gave myself an afternoon off today and finished off the intercooler pipes. They all fell in place quite nicely. Just need to get a batch of T clamps.... Tomorrow will be take it all apart again and paint everything.

    So how do you find having to climb up and down on the vehicle all day long when you are working on your vehicle - particularly if you drop a spanner or a small nut - is one of the annoying things with the 101 - a decent climb up and a decent jump down, not helped by the fact I have no where to park mine other than a sloping drive - I can get it into the garage but I have to take the top off and let the tyres down and then it is too wide to move around it.

    It looks like you are making great progress - I have some work over here for you when you are finished - better still before you are finished.

    It's more getting down low that stuffs me. The usual lay down on the garage creeper, then realise that crap, the spanner is still up on the bench... Get back up again with knees creaking... And repeat several times a day.

    It'll need a step or two to access the cab easily. Probably a hub step and a solid one in front of it incorporated in to the side panel/bar mounts.
