Then purchased 2 lengths of 38mm diameter steel and 2 lengths of 38mm square steel bars for floor and roof strength and keep the body ridged.

Will look for more pictures and upload soon.

Ok more details of winnie now a crew cab in the making.
The square box section was used to lengthen the floor and add strength along full sill length and tube used along roof section for same reasons.
Pick up window frames used on cut down doors and joined to traveller B posts as photos.

So the doors open like a Mazda RX8

Very cool.

Have you added in a lot of extra strength to allow for the B post not being fixed?
Also have you got latches for the rear doors on the roof and floor?
I would like to see the engineering behind the modification, I guess lots of problems to overcome.

Hi John
The extra strength can be seen in the trial fit up pic for the round tube which is welded inside and out and the inside view shows the square tube which is fitted inside the sill section along the complete length.
Yes doors not only open as Mazda RX8 it also uses the top and bottom locking mechanisms, bottom one is fitted one side and working on top one at the moment.
Also the roof is a new section all metal to help with keep it all ridged along with the rear seat base made from box section as pics.
