Congrats.
The Ute looks sensational. Do you miss it?

Did someone say 'Spray Booth'? I just ordered a new spray gun the other day.
Sorry I didn't keep that extraction fan for you. Look forwarded to dropping in one day and seeing how your progressing.

I’ve been thinking about it, but also a bit worried about fitting them into the original headlight buckets.
There are a lot of different LED headlights on the market now and I’m sure the quality varies as does the pricing.
I know member mrbarista has some fitted to his Ute. I also know you can buy fitting rings for the 7” lights quite cheaply if you search under Jeep LED headlights. The rings are plastic and I reckon you could get them to work (maybe with some minor mods).
Let us know how you go 🚘

Good to hear you gave it a blast. Did you finish the caltracs and are they fitted?

P.S. Took my red ute for a spin today too, after changing the rotor button. It felt like it was only running on 3 cylinders when I took it to Zigmondo's BBQ Day. Now back to full power

I'm keen for an S to suit a plastic grille. I couldn't help but notice you had that 'Flying S' one on your coupe.
You should see about getting it scanned and make some 3D copies to sell.

So DD what did the horizontal Flying S badge come on and was it a grille badge or did it sit somewhere else. I'm sure someone could adapt it to the diagonal bolt pattern with some JB Weld.

P.S. If you want to sell one of your collection send me a message

Would love one of the original metal ones or even one of the round 'S' badges.

I remember years ago someone in Australia was selling a billet version of the flying S badge on ebay all the time. But I haven't seen them for years and have only seen a couple of the genuine ones for sale in Aus over the last 15 years.

Bprojects sell a plastic version of this badge, but am I right in believing the original ones were cast metal?

Can you give us some detail of your build, (e.g. engine, trans, brakes, engine mods, body mods, factory ECU or aftermarket).
Depending on what you’ve added/removed or modified you may find one particular engineer more accomodating than another. Although under the new VASS system they weeded out some of the more ‘flexible’ engineers so they will all be fairly close in their requirements.

Expect 2 or 3 inspections, the vehicle to be weighed, a braking test, a noise level test and if your unlucky a full EPA test (IM240 emissions test) which could add another $1500 or so to the bill.

Well I've located some NOS chrome trims with weatherstrip attached. So won't have to stick new rubbers to my old trim after all.

If I was to do it, my plan was to use either Permatex Super Weatherstrip Adhesive or Sikaflex-Auto+ Adhesive and also see if I could push some heavy duty staples through the existing holes left by the original staples.
