Next on the to do list was to make the center console and body panels.

Below some pictures from the front end panels , the rear tray  and seat box panels installed. The snorkel will come out at the rear, so a custom Stainless Steel tube is TIG welded to give the LS the necessary air!

Next step is to finish all the body panels, then take the whole vehicle apart to be able to paint everything.

Updates to follow ASAP!
