PLEASE GENTS !!! When we work on our patrols , try to be safety conscious !! HOLLOW BLOCKS , that's a wonderful way to get hurt !
When one block collapses , it will cause all the others to break because of the sudden load transfer .
Jack stands are cheaper than hospital and or a coffin ! What's wrong with borrowing some jack stands ?
If need be , I'll even courier you some jack stands for you to use . BUT PLEASE USE JACK STANDS !!!

(yes we do know you're a farmer , and just use anything handy)
Guys , please try to work safely !

Your build is looking really nice , I'm also looking at building a new camper box for one of my Safari pick-ups .
Are you going to fit kit/tool boxes in place of skirts in front and behind the rear wheels ?
Look at my photos under inflation deflation on another thread to see what tool boxes I made for my Safari .
Can we get rid of STUPID DRIVERS before they kill us ?

Bossie L, That looks really good, but please make your photos smaller ( around 0.5Mb max) please. With our terrible internet at work it took 12 mins to open the 2 photos on this page. I gave up on page one cause after 30 mins it timed out ... :thumbup: :thumbup:
