You are expected to drill a huge hole in the floor on a new car? I would go to great lengths to avoid doing that if it were mine.

Finished off prepping the block for machining. Just needs a wee skim off the top. Head gasket failed as per my thread a while ago, and ate away the tops of the sleeves between cylinders. 

Vee'd out and welded the exhaust manifold underneath where it had cracked as well.

A couple of upgrades yesterday, Imy battery finally arrived so I ser up the dual battery system to run the fridge, mount, Redarc 25amp dc/dc charger and a 50ah invicta slim line battery.
but according to the app it actually holds 54.5ah, so it is probably 50ah with a but in reserve to stop full draining, comes with a 7 tear warranty which is great peace of mind. It was also 74% charged when I installed it, but after about 20min if driving it's at 100%.

The 2nd thing was a custom rear shelf, fully carpeted so I can fit a lot of my off road stuff under it, with plenty of room for the fridge and a bit of storage left over. I think it looks pretty good too.

Got a new MOT :-)

A big relief after all the welding I had to do. If anyone's wondering if you can get a cheap gasless mig off amazon and keep your jimny on the road for a bit longer, yes you can
