Just another picture of how I want the van to look when finished in regards to wheels and ride height.

Why limit yourself to 8's on the front? You managed to squeeze 10's under the hatch!!!  :)

Dont worry I tried but the backspace on the 9's and 10's wont allow it and will foul the tie rod end. I have pictures of that Tassie HQ and boy that is the look.  :clap:  :clap:

 

Same as this Tassie ute, I think fat and low is a Tassie thing but I like it  :D  :D

Must be a Tassie thing, they both look horrid! That Orchid HQ would be so nice if put back to a better ride height and fitted with 15x6 and 15x7 RallyeII rims.

Bit of an update, yesterday I bonded in the window panels with the Fusor 108B panel adhesive and today I removed all the screws, sanded back all the excess epoxy, then applied the Evercoat Fiber Tech filler. 

 

Holy Heck isnt sanding that fiber reinforced filler a chore and a half. Spent about 3 hours today with 60 grit in a long block and still not finished.

Will those rears be wearing anything wider than 265's? Might have to roll the guards.

Seeing that all the paint is coming off and I will be grafting in the side marker lights as well all the guard lips will be getting a gentle tap Laurie just in case  :)

Where I work up north in Tom Price there was a spot just out of town that had a few old wrecks that was good for bits and pieces. Went out there the other day and after all these years the bloody Shire has decided to clean it up, NOOOOO!!!

Watching Outback truckers the other night, I see there are some blood sucking pieces of eight driving out to all of the stations from Perth to buy up all the wrecks for scrap. The company was called Bozzauto. Someone needs to firebomb the place.

Yes I was Sooo Devastated when I saw they were all gone. There were so many good parts left in all those wrecks.

Have got the hoist on order as well.

So would the orange Mad Max van have had one of these twin headlight nosecones with a Mercedes headlight stuck in there somehow?
