    just come in from painting it - hammerite green smooth
    need to get a spray can to do the mesh though - will take too long to paint that with a brush

    suppose i could have got it powder-coated, i know a few places in Dyce that do that for offshore gear, and a mate gets his motorbike parts done with them

    I can highly recommend PPS Fiberglass (also powdercoaters) in Inverurie. I get all my bike and truck bits done there and its top quality work. :thumbup:

    They are on Harlaw Way off Harlaw Road. Find Tawse Tyres and drive down the road to the right of them. When you come to the T-junction, turn right and they are the last unit on the left.

    thanks for info on powdercoaters location Ecoman, I know tawse tyres.
    will think about them when i have made the sliders

    Sae70 - roller - now thats a good idea for doing the mesh - less wastefull than a spray can, and i have some mini-rollers

    Phase1 of the boot system now done

    finished off the drawer ends with 2mm treadplate, and added a metal corner strip just above the drawers to the load area.

    Phase2 - will start soon...
    a removable packing/shelf system - mainly plywood based to surround fridge and hold lighter items.

    Just spotted what you on about there. Hard to spot tho!!!!

    Looks cool!

    I am thinking I might do the rear door trim in treadplate as the trim is marked/damaged from the last owner!

    Going at mine again when I get home.
