Recently joined looking for info on bmw reverse flip hood hinge but after wasting 2 days sold mocking it up the throw was too small
anyway, unfortunately my photobucket bombed out a few weeks ago so I lost a lot of pics
I have gone in my own direction with this truck and done a few things maybe not seen before. I come from a vw background and have lots of spare VAG range parts to hand and a fair few have made it onto the truck.
some bits I've done include;
6" widened bed + tailgate
removed box sections from bed
replaced curled bed edge with roll bar tube formed to match cab curve
full integral cage with side steps
audi TT fuel cap in arch (fender)
Audi door handles
mk2 golf door catches and striker pins
mk2 golf modified wiper mech relocated arms to both sweep in same direction with 2 speed + intermittent motor
mk1 golf cross hair headlights
Passat sport seats with touran (routan) bases with under seat storage trays
I have a couple of vids that survived of me testing remote central locking / door handles and tt cap activation
also a few random pics, I will get some pics of the finished article in a few weeks
I like it and in particular I like how you've gone your own way with things. The roll pan looks like a very good job to have done it from scratch and the door handles don't look out of place at all. Can you give more details on the bed widening - did you widen the track some to accommodate? Taking out the box sections is subtle and hat's off there too.
Where did you get the rear lights with the amber flashers? Nice touch.
thanks for the kind words - I'm sure it's not everyones cup of tea
the bed sides are joined to the cab now so just moved them out 3" per side and made my own tailgate to suit using the original 'ford' centre. the box sections were no longer needed at the front and the rear were replaced with half a rollcage bar welded to the side.
the rear lights are actually from a lorry, they're called 'hamburger lights' the are stop / tail / turn signals
