That looks awesome so far well done .
Just a headsup on the Jag diff. Ensure you overhaul the handbrake calipers now and that it functions correctly. They are bugger to get to once you have the loadbin on. Normal procedure would be to remove the diff to remove / overhaul / refit them. Unless you have small hands ( to get in between the diff cage )and a dummy caliper it can be done in position . Oh and lots of patience...
