That is the Redneck shooting platform from hell in the making. Just add plywood. If you can't shoot it off the bonnet there's a good chance it ain't worth shooting. Unless of course it's out the window

And yes Shania Twain loves me as well even though she's my half sister to another brother !!

Well if that's the case you have fucked it up completely. You need to have a windscreen that folds forward so you can use it not unlike the army willys. If you are going to these extreme lengths why make it so you have to get out of the car at all :D

Mate I like what you are doing to my truck. I could have used it this weekend but am planning on sleeping in the back of the Highlander as it is longer than the one you are building me.

Back from Panel shop. Roof stripped and rusty bits fixed. Bonnet fixed. Both Satin black to assist with being parked behind the duck pond. Complete new under seal applied . Roll bar finished, Seat frame mods done to allow for folks who are taller than 2 foot tall. :shock: Rear door hinges bored and new hinge pins,
UHF fitted. New rear door seal, new door window seals courtesy Basisnz resto parts . Nice to find brand new stuff like that. Rear LED flood BAR inter connected for use with or with out reverse lights. Its nearly all over....

Looks a bit Dusty from the panel shop ... :lol:
