That was the only good bit 😂😂

Good stuff but I guess you lose some storage space in the guards. Won’t be needing headlights. What’s the plan there?
Headlights will be going in but not functional , was thinking about making them pull out like a drawer 😎 Will wire up the park lights as clearance lights
My mate just bought thisImage

Good work Image

When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

john is truly a talented man :shock:
for those of you who don't know his work
he was instrumental in the building of xboss
with out doubt the most awarded car to ever come out of Australia :clap:
he also waved his magic on merculese
another award winning car
if you ever get the chance to see the all metal interior :shock:
the things this man can do with basic tools just blows my mind
I wish I had a tenth of his talent

UET number plates, and the old white-on-black style too. They seem a few years too early for an FB.
My father's FJ was issued UFT-944 when he bought it from Narrogin and registered it in Perth in 1958, and my grandfather's 1956? A30 was UEN-323.
