Interesting, seen it done befoe but looking forward to this thread.......also
Good way to get arthritis in your early 20's doing it that way.lol
How long have you allowed yourself? I started mine weeks ago, but I really have enjoyed it, apart from the weather! The weather has really been sh*tting me off big time!
But good on you for giving it a go! Also, follow wilso's instructions as they really work!!!

yea i kno, but i got a sh**load of time to do it, like, im not getting rid of it nytime soon, plus i jsut bught a vl 5spd so i cng et around, but work atm...man...its hectic...im sitting on 60hr weeks atm labouring and the weather is killing me lol il take a look at ur ute now
soz for late pics, ive been busy, ltierally, ave a look at the pics and lets see what you got to say
This is most of the stuff sanded and primed, the bumpers and trims etc arent there but il get pics up soon enough, guards arent there either and i havent started on the doors yet
whats the pink stuff on the panel joins? maybe you could look into sealing them up so theyre nice and smooth, along with the joins near the bottom of the window at the back.
the pink stuff is bog filler i hadnt sanded and primed that bit it was drying at the time of the pics
Looks like great prep work to me! Keep on going, it looks great!!!
Sorry to say but my little project is over, no longer can seriously b f'd lol. Guna strip it down and sell off stuff
i kno man but, the cost to find an engine that i need, get it installed, get the bodykit, spray the car...its just easier to buy a predone car and im thinking VY anywasy, not as much hassles.
thanks mack, but its already stripped lol. took it all out today, even tinted windows and selling them off, taking out the gearbox and manual setups on sunday and selling off then scraping the car, id post on parts for sale in the trading post area but not been a mem for 3mnths lol
thanks for ya support guys.
I came to see how this was going and it's all over. Next time I suck the doors off a VY I'll think of your poor old VN
ahhh as if very sad u quit lol
