    I honestly want to compliment you on your handywork. I just cannot find something.

    Good job for tryin? Or good luck for the next one?

    I remember after school i had a Uno 2 door that was written off. I rebuild it and even did the panel and spraypainting myself. Once done i took it to a real panelbeater friend of mine to show off. He just laughed and congratulated me on trying, but I still think till today that I did a better job than the Fiat factory.

    BTW , your photography skills are far superior to your joinery prowess . For you second attempt a square would come in handy . I do admire your bravery though

    Bolshoi, great job ! Most people would not have the slightest clue how to build something and would run off to the nearest shop and buy at a premium.....

    As long as it works for you, great! Well done

    Bolshoi, you better get a patent lawyer quickly. By Monday morning I reckon Frontrunner, Stofpad, Safari Centre and Gerber's are lining up to get that patent and then your potential billion dollar fortune will be but a fart in the wind....

    You supposed to have both hands on the steering!

    btw. I think you must move it a tiny little to the back otherwise you won't be able to use your handbrake in an emergency.

    Met my eerste bou van 4x4 het ek net so baie pakslae kommentaar gekry. Maar ek was jonk, het niks van 4x4 geweet, en het probeer. En ek het ure en jare se genot daaruit geput, en my vrou kannie verstaan hoekom hy daar in stoor staan en ek weier om dit as scrap te verkoop. Toe byt die gogga, en dit hou net aan. Nou, na 10 jaar het die builds wel baie duurder geword, maar sadly nie veel beter. Maar dit is beter as golf. My eerste 4x4

    So ons verwag nie n meesterstuk van jou, dit is iets wat jy self gebou het om jou lewe makliker te maak. Salute.

    Haha. Loving these comments! To come back to the handbrake.. Braking only makes your rims dirty

    for posting it.

    that takes some bravery.

    Here is some advice - cover it in a thin foam and some black denim or vinyl, it will really tidy it up.

    well, it worked for OEM land rover centre consoles anyway...

    Dit lyk vir my tog allright. Iets om trots op te wees! Vat die negative kritiek en se dankie! Mooi bakkie man!

    Bolshoi, if I were you I'd do this:
    • Take off the carpeting.
    • Lightly sand the corners to make them less sharp.
    • Paint it with pink wood primer.
    • fit thin (3mm thick) foam all over.
    • Then upholster it in vinyl.
    • Place it in the Triton.
    • Drive to Municipal dump.
    • Throw it away.
    • Then make version II.2 - new improved one!
