You don't normally get attached to nice trucks and the urge to off-road is great with this one :cool:

i will always do some offroading,  but this one i do like, 

its nice and straight, perfect, well no, but i cant afford perfect, what i do have is a good base truck, i plan on making the interior a nicer place to be, altho it isnt bad now, i deffo plan on a turbo motor at some point, thats the only plans i have 

neat/quick/stock

rubber strip nibbled by the mice most likely

 the body work has had some work on the tailgate/backend area, it looks ok, but will be revisited

 

at this point Babbs the owner  of my old mk5 and neighbour came over and wondered what was under the ply

so i set him to work

18425186_1973218152906728_5865461156862750975_n.jpg?oh=f9a291664ca4b04b795f1e810b355420&oe=59741606

someone greased the bed before the ply was laid, 

18425167_1973219529573257_7477146152306341337_n.jpg?oh=4b8873138fcb5bbe3d541b9118ee7306&oe=597E0BC4

 

and it looks good, real good

18423899_1973219026239974_5593139906983560047_n.jpg?oh=051cee4774ba1b426d4a78931c532327&oe=597A409F

 

boring stuff,, now i do plan a respray in a year or so, this decision was made at sibber the second time i looked at it

as there are a few blisters, bodges and touch ups that are perfectly functional but could be better

18485892_1973215742906969_4366449621714015501_n.jpg?oh=f4e0faa873ceacd86e089ff5d5cb0eb8&oe=59BE4369

front bumper can be saved easy enought, 

18485638_1973215812906962_7944374974610352170_n.jpg?oh=2ac80eca204165a878f3189109eb5b7f&oe=597483AA

maybe some under bonnet smartening needed

18425184_1973217869573423_5471059785634768550_n.jpg?oh=9f1a49be482f0418ea3ad92524a0f125&oe=597E4EC0

oh and probably get rid of that bloody sibber mud

18528024_1973217796240097_5248426296923622723_n.jpg?oh=c3a8bcbd26fdc90e6e59f9b6d35acee0&oe=5974EEC4

the bonnet is rusting on its front edge and is to far gone in my opinion, so on the look out, like in the next year

it really is, 

the only area that needs a good going over is the back end, some sort of damage repair at some point, 

i am not even sure i will turbo it before pauls do, its not to bad as it is
