Awesome looking truck!

What thickness steel have you got on your notch? I ended up having to scrap my first notch due to the guy who did it not knowing the regs, would hate to see anybody else make the same mistake.

Cheers

oh wow, this is so cool!

 

Definitely keep the paint as is!

Not a fan of chopping up with tray either - if you can, raise the tray up inside the body so it's still flat. would look much tastier imo.

 

also, go for an old v8 I reckon. keep it period!!

 

look forward to seeing some updates oh jeah

Loving this truck, also quite jealous that it's progressing quicker than mine.

I read a thread on another forum about a guy installing bags on a Jag IFS clip. He set his at ride height then designed his bag mounts so they would be parallel at ride height (this = not this < if that makes sense) He was doing it to reduce wear on the bag rubber. Not sure if it's necessary or not, but might be worth thinking about? Or not haha.
