    Ozzy,

    Did you put ply over the seats and on the side of the seats or direct stick the carpet?

    If you still have the product id for the carpet, could you post it here to (i need to travel 3 hrs to get to Clark Rubber)

    I just stuck the carpet straight to the Ally mate , I just scuffed it up with a bit of wet and dry 180 grit paper first. I used bostik glue also from Clark Rubber , I'm sorry I don't have the id code for the carpet all I know is it is rubber backed marine carpet and cost me 44.95 a metre.

    Cheers
    Ozzy

    After reading the rules about anchor lights and heights etc I decided I'd get a different anchor light instead of the small one I had , so as to not have any dramas with the powers that be , this one is able to be seen 360 degrees , it's an LED and is able to be taken out during daylight hours.

    Cheers
    Ozzy

    lecky

    Geat job mate you should build a few like this to make some kanga
    you appear to have done a nice custom job
    I shall give you a tip involve your eletric susy coil in your jocky strap to stop the susy coil floging around as that is usually a problem for the snakes they seem to get a intermitat break in a internal wire.
    You have got to christen the reburth with a green fish
    Good luck
