      Looks good, nice shot. Do you have clear bulbs in the outside socket of the marker lights and the amber across the top?

      edit: or is that some kind of UK spec lighting?

      That's the UK spec lighting, our indicators are the top 2 bulbs and the sidelights are the bottom one, the top 2 being orange and the bottom one being clear. We don't have DRL's.

      Thanks Si. I don't have DRL either. I just bought clear corner lights. I was going to put all clear bulbs that blink amber. But I kinda like the look of the 2 top being amber and the lower one being a clear one that will blink amber. In PA all marker lights have to blink amber.

      the bottom one on the UK spec doesn't blink... only the top 2.

      Time to resurrect this thread... I've been away for 5 1/2 yrs... I left her with family and asked them to look after her.. suffice to say, they didn't... parked up, never started and then finally filled with junk..

      Spent the last 2 weeks trying to sort it out...

      I had to replace the rear solid brake line as it burst when I finally got it started n drove it.
      Runs like a top mind you.

      Rear brake calipers are NFG so I've gotta go n get other ones and according to the last MOT failure sheet in 11, needs CV shaft n a upper control arm (2 piece) and tyres...

      Not that it's a big deal, just wish I knew before I came home.. then a damn good clean n a polish will be in order

      Si

      Well, this old girl turned 20 years of age on Saturday, so I spent the day driving her around and redoing the wiring in the tail gate to get the plate lights to work.

      She's looking good for a 20 year old truck, I've had her just over 11 years.

      Decided to give the old girl a spruce up while I was away in Florida. The paint was a little tired in places and some rust had started to appear.
      What started out as a touch up ended up being a full respray.

      I'm really happy with the end results and hopefully in the new year I can get some bits and bobs sorted out to keep making her more unique.
