The rear gate is finally done.
This was a head scratcher for Shane, but it's turned out great.

Today while waiting in the Doctors office I was reading the Dupont Reg.
and saw this UTE listed at $49,999.00
Its lower on this Ebay auction.

Apple's rear shock mounts look much much better

I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm's way.

Modifications
-------------
Chipped paint
Worn tyres
Dirty Carpet
Chipped windshield
