Easy to make up yourself,I got the gear from Basis rubbers,I will check up on the end caps for you as I may still have a couple.
I did my racks on the Brock as I found a NOS set.

Ok............update time,been busy this easter weekend on the wagon,engine bay is prety much all welded up and ready for smoothing,all seam welded etc,also hole for heater pipes were cut out and a plate welded over for extra smoothness lol.front windscreen rust is all repaired and welded up.ready for primer.tailgates rust is all repaired and welded up,rust killed and ready for primer,tailgate wiper and squirter holes are shaved and welded up ready for bog and primer.rust in the rear drivers side guard has been cut out,and when that was cut out i found more rust behind it as well so both skins had to be repaired,made up templates and cut out my patches to be welded it,welds need to be grinded off them bogged etc.
rust in passengers side floor pan cut out,rust killed ,patches welded.

so i have been a busy boy,and its too wet to work tomorow so il get another full day at it.

Things left to do are:

*Rust repair on drivers side sill

*Rust repair on L/H side rear guard

*Engine bay to be bogged and primered etc

*front and rear windscreens to be bogged and primered.

and alot more,will be on tomorow night with another update and more pics.ENJOY



















........oh and i also machined up a pair of custom strut tower caps .im still not 100% happy with them so they may be changed slightly and a bottom plate added to them but not sure yet.

if anyone is interested in the strut tower caps i am more than happy to make some more up for a reasonable price.they are mild steel,and they will just be urothaned onto the strut tower so fat unless i develop them further with a plate on the bottom that will get bolted on to the tower.

any questions dont hesatate to ask.cheers

well i think we all know rust is lighter than carbon fiber.... so thats the positive side, just try saying that to the testing officer. LMFAO if you could get a cert for rust...

wish i had a garage like that tho , makes all the difference with the right tools..
