Forwards progress isn't a great deal at the moment and confined to starting to bolt the body back on to the chassis (with UNF bolts, R-R...). The rear crossmember was just sitting loose (not bolted to the chassis), so got that in position using the number plate/towbar bracket, then some new 5/16 UNF bolts. So far, got the 4 load area bolts in and one of the footwell bolts (by the centre console). The one halfway down the door apeture is currently blocked off by the new bit of chassis (out with the die grinder when I repatriate my compressor to the new house from the lockup) and need to make a new hole in the front corner of the footwell to the front outrigger to sort that one out.
Seatbelts - I have a good pair of the original Britax ones to refit, but no floor brackets. Do new ones (Securon, probably) come with floor bracketry - and are both holes used, or does one just hold the body to the chassis?
Thanks to simon_rs, I now have the majority of a black interior to fit just to add complexity - its first outing might be a mixture of tan and black though!
