You've probably noticed the grill and the Independant truck company logo sanded into the bonnet too!

 

 

On Monday its off to the bodyshop for Front and rear bumpers painting, side skirts, door bottoms and the rear arches to be done.

 

Plans are smoked headlights and repeaters, some front fogs are waiting for it to come back from paint and maybe some recaro interior.

 

whats peoples thoughts?
