This is where this ute sat from 1987 to 2004 , when I finally wrestled it from the original owners daughter.

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.

Looks like you've added some electrical tape around a pillar.




Just add it to your retirement project pile. Keep her rust free in the meantime.

In Blacky's photo (on the trailer) is the area behind the seat painted or upholstered - thought was painted in body colour but in this picture looks as though was vinyl covered because of the glue that can be seen.
The only reason for time is so everything dosen't happen at once.
If Macca's home delivered there'd be one less drunk on the road.

originally they had vinal that was held in place by a bar and then went down behind the seat.
got to love the old trusty grey motor and drum brakes
