Thanks Claye, not ideal painting back later, but plans change was going to vinyl cover, then though might as well paint. Trick is to mask up the fron and back put extraction fn hose in through spare wheel door then cl8mb in air feed respirator and paint, then get the furk out of there and come back in n hour later, or could just get the roller on it!

So paint in the rear is holding everything up. After paint I can
Put the floor deadened down, install the aircon unit
Fit the windows and central locking,
Final fit shifter
Fit battery box and finish wiring
Fit back floor
Fit upper and lower tailgates although need a bit for upper tailgate still
Fit rear bumpers which are good to go
Fit front bumper
Take to trimmer for full headlining, but this looks like it will be in 2020 now.
