Yip, they are accidents looking for a place to happen. and they are usually out of balance and sometimes they are leaky too. :blackeye: :blackeye: Are you going to make them black? :twisted: :twisted:

I thought about "all black rims" but i'm not sure. :blink:
At the moment I will probably go with Silver outer and gun metal face inside.???
Any thoughts or ideas are welcome :beg: :beg:

Hi Guys.
Sorry ive been away so long. Ive been quite busy at work and life.
A quick update on shrek

Ive moved on to getting the rust out of the load bin and started straightening. So far no major issues here.
Then I cut the roof off.
And what a surprise I got. Lots of rust, not good.
I am looking for the rain gutters that go on both sides.
I managed to find one at the stealers in Witbank but I still need one for the left hand side.
If anybody knows where I can find one please please please let me know as this is now holding up the entire project.
Will post pics a bit later

Thanx guys
Claude

Hi Guys

Its been a very long time since I last did anything on Shrek.
I have been extremely busy with life and all things time consuming.

I have finally come to the conclusion that this job I started was more than I could handle alone. :surrender: :surrender:
So now I am looking for a reputable metal worker who are willing to take off where I stopped. I have had a couple of guys come and look but to date nobody that wanted this challenge or I didn't want them to work on Shrek ( some people still think its a good idea to cover rust patches with fiber glass). I for one think its a short term cover up and not a long term solution.

So here goes.
Is there anybody who would like to come have a look or perhaps point me in the direction of someone who does a good job :beg: :beg: I really need help

Claude + Rick

Ek kan nie glo dit vat so lank en soveel moeite en harde werk nie!!

Dis hoekom almal so duur vra om herstel werk te doen.

Ek sal maar nog lank moet spaar voordat ek my SFA se kanker laat uithaal.

Alle sterkte vir julle

Looking back at all the work I have done makes me wonder why I ever started. Now a few years later I am in two minds whether I should continue or close my eyes, count my loses and sell.

So I eventually started working on Sir Shrek again. And I must say that I am quite happy to say that this Hilux is 100% rust free on the body. Everything that we saw and found was repaired. The rust was cut out and replaced with new parts or new steel where I could not source the parts.
I will upload the pics as I move along. Please be patient as I do not have a lot of time to do all the work.

Ek het ook die chassis verander sodat my spaarwiel 100mm hoer sit. Nou behoort hy baie minder te vang as ek deur n skerp sloot ry.

Claude, it is a massive job that you are busy with. I am planning to start doing mine in about a months time as soon as it cools down here by us. I have got more or less the same rust that you have, so I have lots of metal shaping to do for panels that one cannot get. I have made up my mind to enjoying the job and getting it done. It will be the last big job that I will take on. So I am quite looking forward to it.You have done a very good job so far and I hope that I can also do a good job. :thumbup: :thumbup:

We changed the water channel inside the fenders to allow better flow.
And removed all the rust.

The roof skin has no pillars. Look at my earlier pics. You will see what the skin looks like. The roof get brazed on at the top end of the pillars. This is how they come from Toyota. Seems that back in the day this is how they manufactured these Toyotas
I did not change my pillars as I could not find any.

It is sad to say but Shrek has died a slow death.
