    Looks to be in good nick. Most of the other tonners I see around are pretty beat up.

    looks pretty damn good tray

    if i was going to do anything to it (and i had 2 days free time) id get my air compressor and spray gun, prep the tray (light scotch and quick prime) and go to local automotive spray paint shop and buy hammer tone paint (as close to tool boxes colour as possible) and spray the whole tray. the white tray looks a bit weird and scratchs and rust patches will always show clear as day against the white.

    i actually did the above to my mates work trailer. he had a big boxed enclosed trailer 1 door on the rear and 2 massive doors on either side. trailer was made to carry 8 doors thru the middle and all tools on the sides.

    he was always complaining saying it looked crap and he wants a new trailer yada yada. i said nah, we'll give it a make over. spent 3 days on it starting friday night giving it a quick buzz, prepin it up and then giving it a lick. and he got stickers fitted on monday with his business name and he absolutely loved the end result. and it last him another 5 years before he upgraded to another trailer.

    I was actually talking about this with my brother the other day , saying I should paint the tray the same colour as the toolboxes (charcoal) . Its not too bad as trays are concerned , non in the actual bed of the tray , only in the corners of the side flaps . and its only small surface rust


    Haha we can have a white one tonner chaddy meet up


    Shoots fired lol hahah


    Hate to be that guy but this thing needs a exhaust badly ,sounds like a diesel the way the rear muffler is . Hoping to get one with 2 muffs on it so it wont sound too p plater mangtec hero , just a more "friendlier" note to it .
    Also pretty much decided on what headunit/speaker combo I want for this too

    This is one thing I can't decide on. I like the idea of keeping the headunit stock, never seen an aftermarket one that fits the dash. Speaker upgrade might be on the crds though, after some sound deadening for the doors.

    shhh you , I already has ls ute

    yeah so do I but after market ones have so much more to give , better tuning , blutooth , handsfree , plug your ipod etc in and use the stock steering wheel controls , use it as a reversing camera .

    Did an oil change on this today , oil filter was really clean no sludge on it when I removed it . So looks like its a really clean engine with minimum sludge etc.

    1 con. Cluster integration. So much easier to just quickly look down when you are changing stations or volume.

    Yeah true , pretty much going for a multimedia headunit to plug in a reversing camera , the tool boxes block alot of the rear tray and its a bit hard to see reversing out of the left and right sides . Straight back is easy but in a car park you cant see if a car is coming or not till your out of the car spot .
