looking good naked





starting from ground up ,bed off for new panels but due to my welder having a holiday wont be back till end of September,
life is so easy with a fork lift to help
light chassis rust bonded, rusted out nudge bar gone.
whilst bed off gonna put new shocks, custom exhaust and headers.then lower her down.
will need to ask you guys about wheels soon I don't have a clue but that's to come
hope you like, I do and no grazed knuckles yet

Default next step

going to the dark side,
bit miffed to find both front tyre's flat after a week and the wheel nuts have near to no access and so tight i will have to to get the mobile tyre fitters around to get them off.
found an old deer window film slapped it on looks good but may take off once she is where i want her.
still waiting for bed to be welded and my bumper from Germany to arrive ,
and she bit me ,trapped my hand behind the bumper whilst taking it off ..knew she would get me sometime
