Peh interfall for my updates are taking a dump, allot of construction on the house etc.
Spend a few nights again with the welder, feeling more and more comfortable with that thing. I was really nervous on the roofpanel welding regarding flexing but both the rusted sunroof part and the 80s carkit antenna are now welded shut, will need a minimal filler.

Floor i patched up and recreated a box for the driverseat mounting. original one was to far gone

Welded up the last bits, rust spray and paint done too.
Redid the wires for the alternators so the system charges again.
Also welded up the petrol mount on the diesel exhaust damper.
Replaced the moonroof with the one of the black donor, leak free and works!

Technically its done.
Going to get the engine swap registered somewhere next month..

Also i was going to keep it stock but i am cleaning out the garage and found stuf of the 760 turbo build ..
