Finally finished the doors today. and with that done, I have now no more real rust repairs to do! :D

Capped the top of the doors right at the standard height. No, i don't want to cut the angle into it, because it is more comfortable for me to have my arm resting higher on the door, rather than lower than it is. It may look dicky, but I can always work around that.

The capped tops

Ok. So wow. nearly 2 years since I have posted. My excuse being that I have been working a lot, and couldnt get a solid run to do what I wanted to it....

But!

I now have some time off, so this project will finally be progressing again :D

So so far I have finished the tailgate, painted the roll bars/cage in a grey hammer tone finish, and repainted the panels etc. pics will give it more justice

Managed to coat the inside of Rex in Raptor Liner. came up looking nice, although I think it would need another finishing coat over the top to harden/seal the whole lot to make it a bit tougher.

Long time between posts haha. I won't say a hell of a lot in this post. will let the pics do most of the talking.

Primed and sprayed the exterior and panels with Beige tinted Raptor Liner. came up looking awesome I must say.
Finished the tailgate. Original factory softop tailgate hinges used, latches are from a camping store here in Australia.
Had to make a custom radiator support since the old one was really rusted and buggered. Made to suit an Aluminium radiator and thermo fan.
and the last 2 pics there are of the whole thing bolted together :)

Getting Toyotasaurus ready for Roothy's run at Landcruiser Mountain park. Getting to the pointy end of the stick now. Going to put it in the show and shine, although I don't consider it to be built for that. Just keen to have it on the road finally!

I've just realised that a lot of the pics in my thread have disappeared. and these last ones haven't formatted nicely. Here's a link to my IH8MUD thread. all the beginning pics are still there.
