That looks ace 8)

I was hoping to get this all done last weekend but the weather got in the way. So it's part 2 tomorrow, the wood seems the right size and a VERY tight fit. Just having trouble getting in into the slot :?

You can get 3mm birch in 5x5ft birch sheets which make them big enough, and they bend great around the curves

Yeap got 2 sheets of 5x5ft of 3mm birch ply and a sheet of 5x5ft 1.5mm for the cab and the remaining back bit near the hatch ;)

Used some 22mm wood to force the sheet into the slot Jack ;) Foil insulation followed by Earthwool makes it feel very solid and sound proofed :)

Front and middle done, just the ali bar to fit between the panels...
