Hi Guys,

Finally decided to put up some of my build pics :)

Before I begin, I would like to thank everyone in this forum especially ddgonzal and datpilot for their tips and advice.

Datpilot (aka Pete) as an awesome guy! he helped me a lot especially when I was struggling to put my panels on.

So long story short, I bought this little beauty from Melbourne. I must admit that I had no prior mechanical knowledge before this build, still learning as I go so would really appreciate your feedback and advice.

Unfortunately I lost the pics I took when I got the ute :( so starting it from where I started removing the panels.

So finally removed all panels, sand blasted and applied a coat of rust-not :)

Was replacing all the panels so thought might as well change the radiator panel as well.
Old one was full of dents and body filler.

After taking out the radiator support, found out that the lower radiator support panel was badly damaged :(
Tried to knock it back but still was not satisfied so looked online and luckily ACP was selling the support panel.
Wayne from ACP is awesome! I called him in the morning and he got that panel ready for pickup the same day!
Welded in the lower support panel and installed the radiator support, now it looks good :)

Calliper Rebild
Cleaned the pistons and installed new seals and painted it. Initially was thinking blue but eventually went with gray.
Replaced new brake pads and springs(Thanks to ddgonzal for supplying with the spring kits)

Thanks buddy,

Ya, rust is a pain.

I know it is not possible to make it 100% rust-prof however I tried to get out as much as I could and treated it with rust-not and applied POR15.

Hopefully this will last me another 20years :)
