Here's some more pic,s at the paint shop! I plan to paint my own chassis to keep costs down
i decided to remove the right hand tank, and make a step/toolbox like the early KW,s had in the US, ive recessed the rear of the box so it can be positioned foward to cover the steering box

ok chassis painted now! polished up the buds and it time to assemble it for real !
 
painted up the detroit 


This is where its at now! just about done! interior, some wiring,polish and chrome grill, few more lights, then some "old school" sign writing


Made a Start on the interior," HERE IS A FEW "BEFORE SHOTS"



And the during pic,s

Ok i guess  the S2,  is now finished !!! over 700 hrs and nearly 40 grand the truck is ready for rego, and will be worken for a living from now on !!

 Cheers Adam



Down at Vic Roads for rego this morning, got the" all good" from the "chick with the stick" as they measure it up, 15min later and 2 grand lighter, she,s back on the road !



Back at home, with the new number plates on, she,s ready for work, **** i even have a job for Monday too!!!



So i guess that's pretty much the story of the S2, I will have it sign-written old style, and i will put up some pic,s when that done, but for now cheers Adam

DUDE!!!!!!! bloody amazing.......really ...it is........hard to believe it's the same truck you started with.

I'm not really into the pimped rig look but that is one truck I could handle......just the right amount to make it your own.

You should be proud......now go have fun with it Wink Grin
