    Hi Ben, I think they might be for these ends I bought off eBay?

    hi, rear mudguard brackets. round headlight lj has slightly different shape then square headlight one.

    they bolt on top of mudguard and thin end has a bolt on the inner wheel arch.

    Update: headlining is in, my mate done this, I think he’s done well and he said the sunroof dip looks intentional and interior lights work.
    He has misplaced 3 of the hand grabs though.

    Your truck is looking great there Bund. I like the job of the head lining, He's done/doing a fantastic job on it.

    If you pm me and tell me which grab handles you need I'll look them out as I have a box with a few of them in.

    It may take me a few days to pack them up but there's no need to give any money as they're better fitted to your truck than being in a box here!! :thumbup:

    Mate that’s really good of you. Much appreciated!!! I’ll pm you but in case I can’t share pictures via pm this is the only grab handle I see fitted, brilliant if you have 3 spare. I’ll grab your PayPal so you’re not out of pocket for postage at least.

    That’s brilliant, thank you!! :)

    Quick question did they actually come with 3 ceiling handles? My mate just said he remembers breaking several clips and that maybe mine never had 3 handles but there is holes for them under the headliner.

    There's 3 horizontal handles for each passenger and the drivers pillar one.. these are all for the round light, the square light has a different headliner and handles etc. Square light head liner doesn't fit the round light very well... a bit of info!

    Gents is likely that the rear bumper rubber ends are different between round and square headlight 70’s. My mates saying they don’t fit properly.

    Gents getting there, by the time I’m back from my honeymoon it will be on my drive. Just thought I’d post one pic of how it was.

    I don’t need the rubber ends I bought from eBay, plonker here thought they were missing but Iwan has shown me the light and I never needed them. My mate called to say they didn’t fit and I was saying push them on harder.

    First time the beast(they’ve named him
    Cyril for some reason) has seen outside his confines for 6 months at least.

    Darth V is the guy who’s done the painting.

    Will address the wheels as they’re letting it down now and I’ll keep an eye for some headrests.
