Check out this MMMEEAAANN ute.
Apparently 55 thou kms. Sweet condition, other than a lil bit of rust.
Filthy J15 powered. 4 on the tree. Which rules. I heart column change.
Bench seat for the ladiez.
Plans are to slam like a gang wife, and either add whitewalls to standy rims or some h00ge diam steels in a solid contrasting colour. Not too sure yet.
Sweetest part of the whole ute, love this line
Worst part of rust

It has been quite rusty, with each repair leading to the discovery of more rust. But, seeing its so lush, its worth doing! And fortunately, its not really cosmetic rust either, mainly firewall stz. So yea, here are some pics of rust removal and patches being welded in. There are some before shots, but they are on another camera. So will update when i get to that camera. It has had true fielding spec repairs in the past, had builders paper over all the rust, and then underseal over that. As yuck as it sounds, its actually pretty good at hiding the rust as it didn't look very rusty at initial glance. Anyway, here's how it went/is going:
As you can see, there is rust in both layers....
Can really see the extent of the rust. There was rust under rust behind rust....
But now theres NONE!!! win
Welds just need cleaning up, then nobody will ever know they were there... hah

So here is some progress:
Rust in a door (cant remember which one)
Nasty, potentially window out rust:
Other door finished:
Rust cut out of guard:
For both of the doors i had to make up the inner frame too as well as the outer skin. Because it had all rusted away.
Luckily only in small isolated areas.
Back of drivers door (making the folded lip was satisfying):
Back of passenger door:
Will post more pics when i have time (aka next weekend) gotta hoon back to wellintron now....
