Stunning sheet metal work; you obviously have one hell of an affinity for the medium, (and the patience of a saint)!

Thanks guys really really appreciate your comments.

Yes I will be selling, had a few personal set backs which slowed me down quite a bit.

So yes will be selling, I have gone past prototype tooling and investing in more permanent tooling now. Taking more time than I want but has to be spot on.

The prototype stuff got me so far but not to where I want to be.

I will keep you all posted, I pop in here every week in case you guys have questions about this.

Without number plate recess should be doable slippo. My email is ber75@bigpond.net.au

Thanks

Bart

Little update
So I have down scaled a little here until I make up more tooling. Hopefully in a couple of months Ill have more??
These are repair sections I have made up and could also be used for the guys wanting to convert their UC to LX.

Haven't stopped. Going slow but haven't stopped :)

Thing that takes time is making tooling. The other thing is buying the machinery takes time and money.
