Did some work to her on the weekend.

The previous owner had fitted some dodgy custom trimmed door cards... that he had sikaflexed on to the door... and he had glued the window winders to the spindles!

I got a full set of the base model hilux vinyl door cards (I don't want the carpeted ones, they only get filthy) and replaced them. The idiot had also mounted the speaker

pods at different levels and places on the front door, as such you couldn't wind the window down without it hitting. so I fixed that too.

I got some hilux surf chrome door handles and fitted them, as well as a SR5 map light set.

I discovered that the rear window winder controller was stuffed and the guy had just dodgied it up, meaning you cant wind the thing down with the key, he also made a 'custom' (fibreboard and sikaflex) cover for the rear door. So next weekend it will be back to the wreckers for some more bits.

I am also thinking about how I will design some rear storage area for it. At this stage I am thinking a false floor about a foot from the rear floor with a drawer system...

did some stuff this weekend to her;

made up some roof racks to go in the tracks that were already mounted to the roof;







I also worked out how I will mount my second battery. Got a $20 battery tray from supercheap and made some supporting brackets to go under it.

Once I fit a snorkle and remove my airbox (changing to an eclosed pod) I will be able to put the tray in.
