It's a bit weird,  I think MBs changed in the fall of 1944, so how many are running around with the earlier fitment,  you would have thought there would be a market for them.

some photos of the parts i have cleaned and primed lots of nuts and bolts that's what takes the time then its time to clean the hubs repack the wheel bearings ready to rebuild the axles and both the diffs with new bearings and oil seals i might have to take some time out as if the blasting is finished all the parts will need priming the same day

Totally agree here,  we could have left a little of the original floor which due to being thin would have needed patchwork sooner or later pity but common sense tells me it's the best thing to do, hopefully the floor will marry up to the chassis with out any issues.

Spent Friday and 1/2 of Saturday working on the body drivers side were the axe handle fits along with the hop hat section that fits inside down by the fuel tank and a new step  and some of the  holes in the dash just going to keep working my way round the body hole filling   the other side is in much worse condition
