Nah dont have a build thread. I was thinking of making one however Im really not sure, its mainly just fixing bits that are broken when I bought it.

When I start modifying it Ill prolly make a thread.

when i got the ute it was a little sad, it had a leaking head gasket, had stockies on the rear with all tyre's bald, tonneau was rooted the driver side door was over extended and the passenger side guard has a big ding.

okay so the plans are
get a new driver side door
a new passenger guard
get it sprayed
a set of mags as the previous owner buckled two
b series xr seats (maybe if its not a huge job)
black interior
better sound system
make up a lockable compartment in the tub using the fuel tank inspection cover as a door/lid
lowered struts, shocks and reset leaf's as

so the first thing was to get it roadworthy so that was easy but it was s**t because i had to take of the tint and the next thing was to fix the head gasket problem so i took the head off and then i got a bit excited and pulled the motor out

so basically i wanted to put a new sump gasket on it and a new rear main seal and my boss said you may as well put new bearings in it and if the pistons measure up okay use them so as im an apprentice in a engine re conditioning shop this was fairly easy to do and it took about three months

as i only had two rims as the owner hit a pot hole and rooted the other two i was on the lookout for some other rims and i came across three mags on flea bay and they were the same as the two i got so i ended up wining the auction and got them for 80 bucks so i think it was okay. they aren't everyone's cup of tea as my old man hates them hahah

they are 17X8
