Picked up 2 of these and 4 MTZ's for a great price, they won't go on untill i get the thing out of the garage though due to height problems.

Piece that i welded in the front of the rear door, finally happy with it. That piece was fairly hard to get as i wanted.

It's basecoat white with no tint, so a very bright white. when the sun gets on it, it is pretty cool. I'm finally happy with a colour.

That colour & clear coat finish is looking pretty damn good!! Should stand up well to bush work & still look good!!

Thanks Peter, thats the main reason for the white, guess we'll find out

2 layers of sound deadner and 50mm of foam in the rear wall then coveredin masonite. We'll trim it with something later, still thinking bout that, hopefully keeps the noise out

Leds in the roof. I moved the one from the rear of the wagon into the extra cab area, I think it might be way to brigh, but hey it can be turned off.
