factory maroon red with black stripes again. with an ally tray from a hilux and canvas top. should look pretty tough.

as a side note, switched jobs so now I have a full week off to actually give it some love. should come together rather quickly. hope for paint by august now.

there is a slight cash flow issue as I have had to infuse some serious coin into my shorty as it got rear ended and and parts are pretty hard to get. plus I chose for the complete respray option. might as well bring the daily back to her former glory.... I have a problem i think. haha

Update time again, Made it out to the farm to start smashing out the interior, and good progress was made, basically ready to come back and just weld it up. shes slowly getting there. hopefully next break the body work is done. Im clearly horrible at quoting this type of work.. haha.

back wall:

coverings in place:

Window frame in place, still needs grinding and a good clean up. but minimal warpage.

Thats enough for now. Im out for another 2 weeks. so I shall continue then.

All the welding is finally done. even some hammer and dolley work to smooth out the roof. been a long time coming. bit of touch up grinding to sort the rest out but otherwise damn near ready for paint.

I feel good about the project, its coming together exactly how I imagined. albeit a bit slow I am getting there.

the shorty got about a solid 8 hours of work to so thats why there is always a small hold up.

Shes done and headed for paint. the mechanical will go quickly. happy with how it looks multiple different colours so one solid colour should look mint.

What a great looking ute. Looks very factory. Not just some cut up 4WD.
Love it!
