    Well,Im still here and still at it,unfortunately weather and time have been against me so there has not been a lot of progress but anything I do is moving forward. There are to many distractions and I have trouble keeping myself to one project at a time,the ute,a 2 door sedan,a morry panelvan,my CMX500 Honda,Alfa Romeo 156 Selespeed a 92 Magna and a 2004 GMH VX Commodore,damn I need to learn to focus,at least these are not all projects but they do take up valuable and limited time when my health permits. Anyway,will try to post some updated pics soon but not sure you will notice much difference extgernally,regards to all,Pete.

    Hey Pete, don't feel to bad about how long it takes. I've got a Willys sedan that has been a project for 20+ years and a 40 ford Pick Up that is around 16 I think. These cars aren't available anymore so the value grows thru the years.
    I also let other stuff get in the way, besides lack of time and cash.
    CBR600, 77 Kombi, 69 Beetle, 29 A Roadster just about covers it!

    Hi there,just thought I would confirm that it is still a happening project,little bit at a time in between other on the go projects,will add a couple of update pics,they dont show everything that has been done but may be of interest. The rear of the cab has been treated to Aluminium cover panels after a spruce up and paint as because it is difficult to clean that area I should be able to just hose and forget so now I can refit the cover panel at the front of the tub for hopefully the last time. Have also bought a polished aluminium fuel tank that may get fitted into the tub,not sure about that yet.

    Yep, thanks for keeping us in the loop! Every job is one step closer to completion no matter what stage of the build you are at.

    Just to say that the ute is still an on going project,have been a little distracted by other things,my new motorbike and another morris minor sedan that is a real rust bucket,so to be honest I have not really done a lot.Finished the roof where the two cab sections were welded together,finished the dashboard,had to replace the bonnet because it would not line up to my satisfaction,only after replacing it did I realise that the issue was the bonnet support,when I closed the bonnet,for some reason the support twisted the structure,have removed it now and all shuts nicely,also did away with the bonnet pins I was using and will sort out something else.Have fitted a dual circuit brake system,now just need to finish the actual brakes as Im not sure whether to stay with the drums all round,it has morris major on the front,or fit discs and a booster,either way I think I will fit the booster.Anyway,thats it for now!
