I wanted to bring in a top end kit from the US but I’m proud to say that all that was made right here in Pinetown. Took plenty R&D but local is lekker

What I am liking is I’m seeing small visual progress almost every day. Seems there is a mission to get her completed and out

Now we are puzzling over interior, we’re so close to the front end being done. Next week bin gets painted and rear end bolted in.
Then off to Auto trimmer. I originally wanted a buckskin suede seat with dark grey carpets and headliner to match seat. But I can’t get the exact look. Also want an elaborate stitch.
Chair below is what I want seat to look like. Interior is basic doors all steel.

Maybe go lighter as per jacket
Want to be done for Cars in the Park end May

Truck looks great.

Seat stitching let me think back to the stitching used on the 2001 Audi TT ‘s were it were an expensive option.

It keeps on getting better and more interesting.
Need to take a break. My set of foose wheels and toyo tires arrived. I'll be replacing the wheels on my own.

How about some replacement vin & weight tags (incase yours have been spoilt or lost).
