There were some nice 95 pick ups as well. I specially liked the crew cab one.

Built by the same owner as the 96 convertible behind it.

Seen a pic of the 96 elsewhere; both nicely done, but I think they look horrible to be honest...

Hi Melle,

We had a great time at the International, unfortunately I missed the meet at the Airport, so missed a few cars that either didn't show up on Sunday or I was too late to see them.

We had quite a busy day at our stall, so didn't get to chat to everyone I wanted to or even bag any bargains early on.

Overall though we had a great time in Holland and Belgium and already looking forward to next years show in Denmark.

A few photos...

Great photos Simon!
One of my best friends has moved to Copenhagen and I'm taking Dirtbiker Junior for a long weekend in September. I think we will try and get over at least a couple of times a year so I'm going to aim to be there for the show next year.
Cheers

Almost a year since I posted anything about the pickup - been quite busy though...

Decided she needs to be one colour, so drove it into a workshop in October, here's some pics of progress so far...


















more to follow...

So just the small task of flatting it back, taking off all the panels - so I could get colour to all the edges, back of doors etc.

Then time to add some colour...

Everything back together after flatting and polishing...



Rear lights wired up with red LED brake and sidelights (the normal bulbs were slowly melting the lenses). Overiders 'offered up' to work out where to fit the tailgate cables (now done).


Just waiting for a new pair of shocks (after fitting these adapter plates) so I can fit the rear wings and then bumpers etc.


Fitted the screen yesterday - it was a tight fit before, so adding the aluminium insert made it even more interesting to fit!

Looking great Simon, lovely colour! That must have been a hell of a job, I hate sanding and painting.

It would be a good idea to get drawings made of the shock adaptors for future use. Any adjustments to the design can be added if needed. Maybe even make up a couple of sets for sale?
