apples,

you of all people would know for sure a project like you're undertaking needs nobody's approval and satisfaction other than your own. it's your hard-earned (maybe not ) money and your m5.

absolutely can't wait to see the finished beast. seriously one-of-a-kind, and not just unique for being different's sake.

The next batch of pics should be to me very soon.
They should really show the final shape of the ute (in to the back straight hopfully)
Not got to the electrical "stuff" yet that could be fun and games??

They've put about 600 hours of work in the project so far.

It was a morning radio program that was on, and during a break the announcer discussed various celebrities and what they were doing and they said Apples was getting it ready for the "Deniliquin Muster"....i'm not sure what that is though.

The 'Deniliquin Muster' is an annual get together of Aussie utes in the NSW country town of Deniliquin. I can't recall eactly how many utes go there, but it is something like 2,500 at once. Each year they try to set a new world record for a gathering of utes in one spot.

Of course, there is also lots of 'circle work' in paddocks and a lot of fun to be had by all.

Cheers

Looks like the project is coming along nicely, the engineering is certainly a work of art.. I would HATE to think what the final cost would be, but if you've got the $$ to drop on it then why the hell not

What are you going to do for insurance? or is self insurance an option?

When its done and you are in Melbourne again we should organise the Melbourne members to meet and get some photos.
