Do you think my bum looks fat in this bumper?

That's a Rares bumper, the fitment was good enough for a tidy streeter.
Got more time than I thought this weekend and managed to get the upper tailgate struts sorted. I used the stock upper hole and the stock lower mounts off the original struts and they work great. If anyone is thinking of doing this and wants more detail, just ask.

Small update today. Did a bit of electrical testing over the weekend. Went a bit like this:

Engine crank: Ding ding :D

Horn: Ding ding :D

Interior light: Ding ding :D

Park lights: Ding ding :D

Stop lights: Ding ding :D

Low beam: Ding ding :D

Hi beam & dash indicator: Ding ding :D

Wipers: Ding ding. :D

Turn signals: Buzz. :(

Well something had to go wrong. Both left hand lights work on the outside but no dash light, right hand side only the rear outside and dash light. Managed to locate the problem with the front right hand light but ran out of time to find the problem with the left dash light.
Well I guess back at it next weekend. Hopefully with a better outcome. Still need to check the coil power, AC Circuit and the radio,I am waiting on an antenna to check that. Enjoy your week and thanks for looking.

Cheers

I know I have been a bit quiet. Nothing worth posting about yet. I did get all my lights working and I am playing around with the cargo area at the moment. Will do a bigger post when that is showing something worth posting.

Hi All, hope you all had a good weekend. I was very busy happy to say getting something worth posting. I started on the cargo area with a bit of vinyl around the edge of the spare wheel cover.

Then with a bit of Project Binki insperation, a couple of side panels made from 3mm Alloy sheet. The reason for this is to hang some 9x6 speakers and not have them break the panel.

Add a speaker hole, wadding and drill & tap for speaker mounting.

Cover in black vinyl and mount. As you can see I also covered the wheel arches with vinyl and wadding.

The white dot you see on the side panel is a hole for mounting the rear seatbelt inertia reel. Next was the tailgate cover. Again 3mm alloy and vinyl. The floor boards were already done minus the cargo strips. These are just laying in place and not attached. I still need to clead them.
