some more bonnet pics. Notice i've welded a bonnet strut point to the other side so it will have 2 struts instead of the standard 1 on the driver side. Nothing like that one strut failing while your heads under the bonnet or the old broomstick stay cause the struts lost its gas.

You can see in this pic, the top edge of the lower tailgate will require a piece of angle attached to it for the top tailgate rubber to seal against other wise there will be gap there between them. I glued & screwed the angle on with panelbond instead of welding it. Once the panelbond cures the nuts & bolts i clamped together with can be removed & the holes filled up obviously before painting. Worked a treat & as strong as welding without the heat !

Got it all indoors at the moment to keep the dust & crap off it all while curing. The missus is just loving that idea

L] Being a Ghost Pearl at some angles of light it still looks white but as you walk around it the colour shifts to gold

I was toying with the idea of a custom ghost flame job but after some tedious taping i decided its not my cuppa tea for an xf so the tape came off again. Still a bit undecided , i might end up doing something sutle though that can only be seen at certain angles of light , not sure yet?

You Can't park that Holden in MY Driveway.......................This is Ford Country.
I had my Ute raised when everybody was lowering theirs so I could drive over shit.
A Country Ute need to actually be able to get over a speed hump... or it's no good for the farm.
