Tub Reassembly

Following painting, I’ve been able to start putting things together again and first up was the rear tub. 

The tub below is actually from a later Series 3 model and had holes in all the wrong places, so these were patched and filled. 
The main difference is in the rear lighting position as the 3 tub has lights mounted in top and bottom position rather than together as shown here.
The galv cappings are held on with domed head rivets, set the traditional way with a snap and look ace! The floor has been replaced with a sheet of chequerplate, but this has been painted to de-bling it somewhat – hope it dosn’t offend anyone too much!
I’ve actually only done one side as I ran out of rivets, so that’s next on the list!
