Score !

I'm embarrassed that you're building this custom truck faster than I am re-building a stock Patrol that I already have 99% of the parts for... :lol: :oops: :lol:

I bet Rob can make one -- He's already successfully molding plastic items -- Perhaps we consider him "voluntold" to create one! ;-)

There used to be a guy in Thailand selling them on eBay. He's been gone for a while but they might still be available.
I'll be making one out of stainless pipe. Running it down the windshield and in through the vent hole in the hood.

Me and Jr have been busting our rumps the past few days. This is where we are at. Catagory 25 under construction. We are headed to the Winslow Just Cruisn Car Show in the morning. Wish us luck. :pray:

Well we came in dead last out of 4 vehicles in our category. Im not sure if it was because the other vehicles were 2 Willys and a 39 hot rod that were almost finished or people just weren't familiar with a Patrol? But we did get a lot of compliments and we had fun. :D

Yeah, car show judges like bling. You took it to the show and had a good time talking about it, and spent a day with your son, that's what counts. :D
