well made it to the last day before cert at around 11pm finished off and fitted wiper blades and found there was to little cover seems I had fitted motor on shortest stroke Grrr which meant dash had to come out and adjustment reset, decided it was to much work and have deferred cert until next available date which is 2016! however after a big clean up I was able to drive it out of the garage under its own power !!! then took it to my friends place in the country where they have some good roads and did some shake down runs breaks and steering, all worked good and sure has some power 0-100 very quick, got a little hot and boiled dirty water all over everything so now home cleaning Grrr found the fault in the fan so should be good for this weekend again

well as we get closer the pressure is on for certification so I can drive it on the streets over the Christmas break attend a few gatherings, can use the 39 tail lights because the don't meet spec for cert so fitted some trailer lights that do but they will be removed once cert is done but don't look to bad.

Decided to get some more pinstripes to match the chassis.
Time to fit front clip and make it look like a real pickup.
Stainless trim and ID badging now on almost complete for body panels, still need to fit the head lights and wiring but moving in the right direction I have 1 month left to complete the deck wood and have it to certifier!!

headers back from coating and fitted sharp note the heat shield
Fitted rear fenders and started colour sanding.
Started motor before fitting the body, wanted to try out my new 6AL however it was a bit retarded and burned the exhaust :-(
Body on and bolted down for the last time!
Doors on and stainless fitted progress is slow all that little stuff pre wiring is mostly in however the tail gate raze and lower remote is taking a little thought.
Added a little bling under the car it will come out between the running board and the door gap
