ok just an update!

failed engineers cert on three things while i was there and then a phone call from him to knock me back on another thing!
things he now wants done
1) Two red reflectors to be fitted at rear next to tail lights
( you'd think the tail lights themselves would be reflective enough) but all good $3.60 fixed that
2) Nyloc nuts to be used with the child restraint anchorages ( fare enough but i used the nuts and bolts that came with the packaging sold on the shelf with the saftey regs stamp on it) easy fix took some out of my spare nuts and bolts box in shed and all sorted
3) 31 inch wheels to be fitted ( no probs i left 33s on there for something for him to pick and make him happy) gonna put my 31s off my rodeo for inspection

but the stupidest thing is he tells me in a phone call after id payed and gone home that hes not happy with a 3 inch lift so he wants the suspension back to a 2 inch lift but asks me if i know measurements etc for him to pass a 2" lift!
WTF no probs buddy i don't know either so will a receipt by suspension place for a 2" lift with my number plate on it make yah happy?

he says sweet that will do and ill pass it as a 2 inch at no extra cost etc!


pretty tense inspection session and went over it with a fine tooth comb but all in all im very happy with the results and he was more than happy with my efforts to get it right!

next Tuesday wont come fast enough when he has a quick look at the corrections he wanted and all is well! Wink

those side windows might be used on the back wall, dont know yet it depends if i can cut and modify them or not!
or maybe if i come across a better option ill use it, maybe a back window out of a F100

Well Harvey I can state after buying one that a X series Falcon ute rear window wont work.
Bastard of a thing is too wide.

I saw one where they used an early hilux rear window, maybe you could just find a pranged GQ ute?

Seriously check out what there worth, and what they go for before you use them for the rear.
I'd aim for something easy to find a cheap replacements down the track. Then again, what cheap about 4b's. :lol: :lol:

Im lucky.
Mine has the solid windows in the back. Made pretty much of unobtanium , so hopefully should fetch a pretty penny when I finally get around to chopping mine.
Way too many other things on at the moment............
Yep 4x4 = $x$

I can give you this info, make a template of where you want the window, take this template to either Viridian Glass or GJames. They can make a window to suit whilst still remaining legal. You cannot cut and modify the existing glass. It's toughened, it will simply shatter into a million pieces.
