Thanks James mate, yes buddy it is. Always wanted to extend the inner wheel arches in any case as the 10” rims were such a tight fit. Hoping there will be enough room for everything in there with a little luckImageImage

Other side under way! Hope my rear 10” rims will fit with the new H&R shocks! Should do as the inner arches are 70mm wider, tight squeeze ImageImage

So bit more done today! Rear 4 motion running gear cleaned up and alloy subframe fitted ready now for fitting. More welding done and extending strips cut and wheel arch trimmed ready for tacking and welding. Happy to have been able to minimise cutting, keep my original caddy floor and a degree of the van’s original structure in tact.
