    Can’t wait too but away on my honeymoon at the moment. I hear it’s nice back home! Cars without a/c and sunroof(was a bit rusty):), going to be a bit hot for my short snout dogs.

    Cheers Gents!!

    I think the smaller tyres look lost in the arches though. I’ll have to go back to 33’s when I can.

    Would need some new alloys for those big’uns.

    It came on 1 year old 33’s and year old exhaust when I bought it!(apparently)lol

    Cheers Clive. The wait is almost over but the pull to use it is not strong enough to draw me back early.

    Would actually like to try its performance out apart from reminding neighbours to not park to close to me. I’ll certainly come say hello if there is a get together.

    When my bfg tyres came New there was a distinct blue marking over the white lettering and around it. I’m hoping my mate just hasn’t tried hard to get it off and that some tar remover will do the trick.

    Just wondering if that’s the norm? Never bought a tyre with white lettering before.

    I have the same tyres, they are nice. Blue goes away if you want quicker with a wet brush.

    Cheers Ben - Alexy - Ben, I do appreciate all the help, advice and comments everyone’s given over this time. It really has made the process easier to digest. A much higher feeling of community on this site than I’ve experienced with car forums before.

    Onto the mechanicals!!!

    Congratulations on the progress and getting hitched. Look forward to meeting up sometime when the truck’s complete and seeing it close up.

    It’s you we all need to thank for such a fabulous job on a cruiser that was otherwise heading towards the great cruiser home in the sky.

    I drove my 560 SEC to and from our wedding the other day, I thought it looked ace, Mrs has already said we can try and store that as would be special to hang on to and it’s not worth a fortune of money.

    Plan is to get her pregnant and drive her home from the hospital in the LC so that’s a keeper too. ;)

    So unless my guys have decided to spray on a wooden crate I’d say that paint finish is looking very glass like? He wasn’t even trying to show me, I just asked if they’ve got the side steps on.
