    Plans are coming along so far. At this point the only things I want to do are as follows:

    -Fit some 2002 model tail lights:



    -Get better plumbing from the filter box to the turbo.
    -Get new handbrake cables.
    -Figure out a roll bar for it.
    -Re-mount the aerial so it doesn't lean forward.

    Other than that we'll have to see :P

      Here's a few more pics guys.

      A bit of recent work (Before the deni ute muster)




      Carbon tax this you Mango Mooted Mole!


      Funny story behind this pic hahaha :P


      At Denilliquin Sign, Denilliquin NSW, prior to the Ute Muster. We spent that night at the Deni Footy Oval because they have great showers! Always warm and barely used by the public.


      After Deni Ute Muster


      I am so lucky to live in the town I do, it's a beautiful coastal town in Portland Vic. If you haven't visited I suggest you come down and have a look around. The locals are really nice and there's plenty to do for car lovers and history buffs.

              Thats cool mate, they earn me ferral points at shows though and the majority of them were designed by me. Thanks for the comment mate. The 4j1BT engine conversion is sweet as! you dont need to engineer it as it's the same engine, just with a few extra goodies like a larger turbo, smoother wastegate operation, top mount intercooler and slightly better airflow throughout, however I'm working on airflow as we speak :P

                  If its your taste then good on you, looks great i guess!

                  Personally when i see ute's like these i want to poke my own eyeballs out and burn them.....

                  But you've clearly put lots of hard work into it! And thats mad! Good on you! Hope it looks how you've always envisioned it!
                  The amount of work youve done is impressive!!!!

                    the head lights are stock and the lights on the bar are so I can see really good at night. HIDs are for wankers and we cant all have a car that can have them fitted. Thanks for your opinion but frankly it's a little stupid......

                      thanks mate. We're different down in the country thats for sure, but at the same time I'd never poke fun at anyone for there taste in cars. She's close to what I want, but if you guys watch this thread there will be a lot more coming :P

                        I might (when I get the chance) do a spotlight comparisson. Currently I have plus 100 H1 globes fitted to my high beams (best on the market for rodeos as HID can't be legally fitted) I will compare via pics the H2s on high beam to the light output from my spotlights to show you guys just how well she lights up the night.

                        It's always good to see the wildlife coming before it's too late.

                          Here's a sticker I'm getting made up for the rear window (obviously only the black part will be on the vehicle) I'm having it vinyl cut in red to promote my facebook sticker page. It's a not for proffit page. If you wish to check it out you should be able to see the url in the pic

                            I hate HIDs too.

                            No need to get your knickers in a knot.

                            I meant the rear lights that you posted saying you were planning to get.

                              Oh okay well the stock lights look dull and booring I want to update, but thanks mate I do appreciate that.
