    Faded paint and surface rust would be prefect, perhaps a rolling shell coz I'm slapping a crate in regardless. I hate filling rust holes :P

    Anyway here's some more progress. I just checked with my dad and we still have the old bar centre from this comp bar dad made a few years back, so I'll just weld the body tags back on and I have a winch ready to go. Only issue is the control box has packed it in, so I may get it inspected by an auto elec, from there I've gotta figure out where to put it hahaha I have a rough idea, perhaps behind the spot lamps but i may have enough room, still gotta size it up.



    Please disregard the aluminium side fittings, dad made them to be removable so I actually no longer have them any more.

                  Glad someone appreciates what I do hahaha. Since this is my thread, the night I showed my girl the ones I wanted, me and her as cowpokes, she was so excited and boy did we have a fun night hahaha! She's a saint that girl

                  Now for those that don't like the new stickers, refer to the image of my favourite apendage until you start to understand how little I care for your opinion. :P

                  Ahh haters, they make life worth living lol. Can't do shit to my ute without pissing someone off. Teehee, suck it up boys.....

                    MASSIVE SUPER AWESOME HAPPY UPDATE!

                    Hey guys, I hope you're ready for some piccys to look at because I have a bunch of them!

                    Had a MAAAAD weekend at the Robertstown Ute Muster, here's how she looked when all dressed up:


                    Before the show^^^


                    At the show^^^

                    New Rear window stickers:





                    The interior at present:




                    That chrome do-icky was only in for the show, I threw it in the passenger foot well "trash pile" until later.


                    Twin UHF Radios^^^


                    They had these official "The Hangover" Hangover cure things at the Deni Ute Muster this year. Tasted pretty good and christ did they work! So I whacked a chain on it to remember the apy hangover I had at Deni lmao.

                    New rear view mirror sticker:





                    So, following the ute show, whose results were less than desired I got back to my mates place and got stuck in to tearing all the BNS shit off the ute.









                    Already looking a lot better, and driving a lot nicer too, perhaps there's less wind resistance? BBJC's (Big Bodykitted Japanese Cars) could learn from this example lmao!

                    Progress will be slow guys, uni is getting bloody ridiculous lately so stop by the thread to have a look when you like

                      Been looking into replacing my dirvers side guard as I want to keep it as a memento, that plus its covered in shitty paint and full of dents, easy enough to replace. Got an idea of the price via ebay but I might try and get one locally which may yet prove to be easier.

                      http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NEW-HOLDEN-TF-RODEO-GUARD-QUARTER-PANEL-FENDER-97-03-/170697096544?pt=AU_Car_Parts_Accessories&hash=item 27be56fd60&_uhb=1#ht_2373wt_906

                      So I've decided to keep the tailgate and drivers side wing panel as mementos to hang in the shed, there both past it anyway so I'll get stuck into fixing it all up.

                          Lol, nice man. A little to many stickers for me personally, not counting the new one and the family one. Love those two. I am loving the front though. That thing looks like it could drive through a brick hurricane. Super badass.

                          When MCM did the zombie episode, they should just used your truck. It's already zombie proof.

                          Love it.

                            Thats exactly what I said during that episode hahaha! And yeah majority of the stickers are coming off, gotta get replacement pannels here and there too.

                              Just oprganised a stock replacement front bumper for 50 bucks so the ute will look like this for a while:



                              Only while I build the competition bar for it though :P Actual pic updates should be expected mid to late December

                              Just a tad excited :P

                                Found this wrecker on gumtree. Turns out, as I had suspected I've already seen it up close. It;s a v6 model but it has a lot of useful parts so I;m going to grab what I can. There charging half the price of Adelaide's major wreckers, City Dismantlers!



                                So far I've managed to get prices on the drivers side front guard at $85 and the radio antenna at $10 bucks! I barely listen to the radio, this is true but it is a luxury when you don't have it lol. Better ten then the ridiculous $35 for a new one!

                                I'm also looking at the rear passenger side window regulator, as mines ****ed. the tray should be $200 that is if I get it. Mines heavily dented but I may try repair it as best I can. I do like that tray though, no rust and in great nick! I'll get picks when I pop out and grab some parts.

                                If only it wasn't a v6 I'd grab the diff as I'm certain its a different ratio, hence fitting it to the diesel is a bad idea.
