Thank's all . This is a shot of the new floor i had to make to cover the huge Nissan 5 speed as well as give me some more leg room as the F250 foot well is small for LHD .

Thank's to all for your kind comments . I had a picture of this thing in my head for a while but the thought of starting on it was a bit daunting as i was in the middle of building my heavy tilt tray truck from scratch and i was also building my pole frame house on my own . So to get it out of my head i bought a new VU SS ute , it was the biggest piece of garbage i have ever owned . And after 3 days of owning it i was under the bonnet trying to find the missfire . I sold it and bought the F250 cab , i had located a 10,000 klm V10 Twin Turbo Diesel Volkswagen Toureg engine which was going to be the power plant but it got sold . I then bought a 6.0ltr Turbo V8 Powerstroke motor which is pictured to go in it but it turned out to be a nightmare as nothing was going to work . I then went to Newcastle to buy a new Backhoe and went for a spin around the block with the salesman in his XR6 Turbo ute . He was in the left lane at the lights with not much road in front before it merged into two lanes again . He give this thing a squirt and it launched so hard it felt like a big fat momma was laying on me pushing me into the seat . I pulled my head out of the headrest and said to him , 400KW'S ? he said close , 380 . It had bugger all done to it and it sounded stock . That's when i went on the hunt for a Barra , Wayne at Allford helped out with the supply of a front cut and the rest is history . As for my background , i suppose i'm the Jack of all trades , master of none kind of guy .
