Another coat of paint on the floorpan before the lift kit and body go back on.

Looking good mate.
Can't wait to see this up the beach!

Modified my gearshift shaft to operate the Kombi box above the tunnel

That linkage looks the go allowing for easy adjustment....assume the shaft was cut back, drilled & threaded? Don't think mine has the thread in the end but I might have to look at doing something similar :)
The build's all looking the goods so far :D Pud

I cut the end of the shaft off, machined a slug to weld in the end and threaded the centre for the bolt to go into

Looks like you have a bit more offset than me but I like the linkage, wondering if there's room to wind the end on in the tunnel or if the shaft gets fed in from the back without the gearbox fitted?

Was just enough room to wind the end onto the shaft inside the tunnel
