Thanks for bringing this one back up Kev, fantastic work right there. I hope he's not gonna cover it up with paint n chrome.
Wow that is awesome!!! I love the wishbones..
very very cool, I met Mike once at Rangiora...really nice unassuming bloke. This pickup is sure chock with details of the highest order!! looks shorter in the wheelbase than I was thinkin but the photos could be deceptive. Impossible to single out one favourite aspect of Mike's work on this 'un
Kev or Greg,do you know if its gona get paint or Gibbs? If poss I'd also love to know how he intends to weather seal the doors...
We all need a fix,
really stuff. dig the soft round edges on everything. some real neat clean ideas. keep it up. this is the stuff that gets me layin at on my back at a show checkin out the brackets and stuff.
Thanks for posting! This rules!
I saw this in the flesh last week. Words and pictures cannot explain the intracasies (Sp?) on this truck! Unbelievable quality and a genuinely nice guy.
god this thing is behond nice I dont know if I can put it all into words. I love the preparations of it also. very cool
Wow - Mikes a talented bloke! I don't know where he finds the time to get it all done. Inspirational stuff for sure, thanks for posting Kev,
Crazy cool... just amazing. Me hat's off. Gary
Wow! Amazing fabrication. Very cool truck.
Top notch! Keep the updates coming.
Fenderskirt ........ you care to comment at this point?
What is he doing with the chambers being built into the lower portion of the bed sides?
Thats one sexy little truck!!! Wish I could fit into one!! I need the bigger cars @ 230 Lbs>
I know on the right hand side at the rear there is a spot for the sissor jack under a beautifully finished panel with counter sunk screws to hold it down into countersunk depressions in the panel below.The jack isn't just floating around in the hole either, it has a bracket to hold it and not let it rattle!!!
Future tool boxes? Gary
Here are some current shots showing some good progress. Truck was taken apart to get it out of the room it was in and is now in final assembly.
What is the piece of sexiness back there in the corner?? The race car gives me wood as well! Wow!
Wow, that's super clean Kev!!!!
Hang on to your shorts everyone..... cause that little PU is coming to the states for all of us to see!
If all goes well we can make a lap from So Cal thru Colorado and down to the Lone Star Round Up, we'll see how it goes.
Your truck is SO well done. Love it. Is that a CanAm / sports racer of sorts next to it? Gary
Very nice work and creative ideas. I noticed that the steering wheel is on the wrong side
Love the work on the frame itself. The fit and finish is carried through to EVERYTHING. That rear crossmember where the rear frame rails mate up, and the way the mounts for the upper link is boxed into it...Wow. Reminds me somehow of sixties era indy and can-am cars.
That is pure ART!!
I keep hearing about the skill and quality of Kiwi builds and builders. Now I see why. wow.
