Not sure on completion time exactly, but he said he could possibly have it in the paint shop by Dec 06.
I told him if that was possible and to have no corners cut in getting there, then lets shoot for that.
If not then take his time as I won't be needing the ute till Sept 07.

I think he's done about 200 hours so far on the ute.
I'll know exactly next week.

Sounds like it's bill time!

All looking bloody good to me! I've seen some of SRC's work at the hot rod shows and they are amazing!

Thanks for sharing the build up

cheers

Actually he's done 230 hours on the ute (can't call it a car now) and about another 30 of non billed hours.

Your right StuM5, his work shop and the work done in it is of a very high quality.

PS...Thanks again Kees for the mini pics, there will be much work for you left to do!

Tanned can you point me in the direction of the place you found this clip?

Here is the thread:
http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...d.php?t=568320

The original poster said he saw it in an Austrialian Car Mag. Perhaps someone who subscribes to an Australian Car Magazone would recognize the layout of the clip and narrow it down for you.

Good luck!
