    It feels a bit like I'm talking to myself here but I shall continue!

    Time to make a proper Aussie style tray.. Everything is hollow brass section, soldered together. It's my first attempt at soldering brass. It's easier than I thought!

    Starting on the tray boards now. I made it in two layers, the base is just plain plywood and the top is the same ply cut into strips to represent the planking..





    The next job is the cab protector thingy (I'm sure it has a better name than that but I like thingy!).

    Then it needed some mudguards. For mud.

    I made a removable rack for the back to help carry those long loads..




    I fitted some chains to hold the flaps back off the wheels.


    Starting work on some toolboxes!

    very nice i love the RHD thats backwards here in the USA but none the less its great . as far as the ute thing thats rather cool aswell but here its more about jacked up diesel trucks like the dodge and ford diesels and the main thing is roleing coal or black smokeing the hell out of the person next to you on the road haha.

    The UTE tray turned out perfect, well done. Did you finish the ARB bumper up front?

    I managed to get a few outside shots the other day, it's a great spot for this kind of rig and it's only five minutes from home!
