    Did the other door and the back of the cab yesterday. My Raptor coating is finished (used 4 bottles so far) and there is no stock in South Africa. Only arriving mid Desember. Leaves me time to work on the nose now. Still plenty to do. Not sure why I am struggling to upload more than one...

    PROUD to have VOTED

Will need to make an adapter plate in between so that it closes properly on the engine’s side. It was the only one I could find in RSA. I also found that the waterpump is leaking a little...

    My dad bought this truck in 2000. I used it as my local fishing vehicle until about 2006, after which it got parked. I went to fetch it at the end of 2019 and started working on it. Slowly. I really only got to it in August this year. Busy taking it all apart to change color and also weld in...
