You going to use all your adjustable set up in this?
You have any spare rear lenses laying about?
Also where the heck has the rest of your Ute gone in this pic!

Sold the adjustable suspension to a local for his tarmac race car, so instead have got shortened struts with golf inserts sitting there ready to bolt in (same setup as coupe has), and reset leaves with nolathane bushes.

Utes been running n14 brake upgrade since 2014 so will swap all goodies over to shortened struts for max braking ability.

The reason the ute had no tail door in that pic was due to a wof law.... rust on tail door was the only fail, so I just unbolted it!

Unsure who owned the ute prior to me, but I bought it out of whanganui feb 2013....

Been a lot of progress between updates.

Still not a fully primed shell....

Have purchased new door and window seals, 1/4 window seals, all the rubbers that go in engine bay etc.
Gearshift boots, various small things.

New shortened struts from nick at mfs, to suit vw golf inserts, new inserts, found my reset leaves I bought off leppa.

One side of the ute and the roof are now in primer as of Sunday last week, as are both doors and tailgate/latches.

Dropped off 2 sets of rims to elite for repair and polishing, bought a coupe centre console, some more sunny badging, new grill etc.

8 weeks to go.......
