Hi, I bought this astro a few years back with some parts missing, I used the rear frame from the general with air suspension & the astro front frame, The axle has been altered to steer, The cab was extended by 20mm. I painted the frame a deep red, Though it looks brown on the pics taken indoors. The drivers door will be hinged. Heres a few pics of where it`s at. Thanks for looking Graham.

Hi Thanks for the comments. Heres a few more pics of the nearly finished frame, The shiny parts are either aluminium or alclad chrome, rear mudflaps not glued on yet, The lettering is done with a sharpie pen, Pipe work is a mix of kit parts & tubing & rod, The heat shields are P/E i`m working on the cab & interior now, Trying to make this old kit fit together is a challenge at times. See you soon.

Hi, Over the festive time i finished the most of the interior bits, The roof is lined with some flock i had lying around, I also fitted a new sports type steering wheel & added a larger bed, New door panels have been made also.
