Nice work Gary, clearly, you have the skills.
Rather envious of that.
Picked up the new passenger wing and dropped off the drivers side.
Another flawless paint job from my mate
Now to fully bolt it up and try match the pin stripe down the side.
Looks great Gary.
Did you fit a genuine wing or aftermarket?
It's a genuine wing, not brand new.
It's a refurbished one from Garry at 80breaker. I went over last month to pick up and choose one.
They're really well done and have only had minor repair work. The repair I've had to do on my drivers side is bigger.
Gorgeous. Need to do mine but its the daily driver too. Might invest in a part time car to help give me the time windows
It does help not being a daily, picked up the now painted drivers wing but rain has stopped play.
I don't have to worry if it stays in bits for a bit longer. It'll have a day or so in the bodyshop too when it's back together.
Planning on some laning while I'm off work, it's going to be like the first scratch all over again
The missus has informed me I'm banned from spending anymore on the 80 for a while lol. Time for that hilux
Mine announces such things so often i no longer hear her
She sort of has a point tbh, by the time I've paid my mate for the paint work, the brakes, cat converters, sorting the fuelling plus various other bits over the last couple of months I've easily spent £1500, I was informed of that last night lol.
She got a new clutch in her car and the screen wash topped up, not sure what her problem is
Sometimes you just need expert help.
Eventually stopped raining so got the drivers side wing on and sealer applied where the wings meet the inner arch, hopefully stone chip it in the morning.
Arch extensions should be done tomorrow too just to pick up and bolt everything back together
Little man looks like he's got everything under control..
A future apprentice there
All back to its shiny glory
One new wing, one new lamp, one repaired wing and some bits of paintwork done. It's all blended in nicely without having to paint the whole thing.
No stripes lol.
Tank is brimmed with 98 octane and I'll monitor the mpg over the next few tanks to see what difference the new fuel adjustments make.
Its great when the truck is all singing and dancing again.
Didnt notice the stripes before but it looks great without them
What size are your tyres Gary?
I've hunted for those, future purchase, but coukd never find them. Didn't known if they were in funny money size. Ta!
I'm on a 15 inch wheel so easy to get hold of. Having to use a 6mm spacer with a big offset to clear the brakes.
I had the wheels/tyres before the 80 (bought for my trooper)
We've both got the same problem Nick, I can't get 305/70/16 in AT KO2s anywhere.
I'm contemplating swapping to At's at some point tbh, the Mt's are overkill for my actual usage on lanes etc, these break traction too easily in the wet too.
Ah, that might explain it
