That's pretty typical for the rust. Keep up the good work!

I have a MWB and a ute (LWB). I would say they are the same floor pan, although I have never measured it.
Not sure if I will get there.
Not sure if I will get back.
But I usually do!!!

Looks great!

I can't see in the picture if the engine is already painted. What color will you be using?

hey everyone, quick question about the body mounts, im noticing that every single mount is different..left 2 are from the cab, others are from the tub, are they ment to be all the same and these have just worn that way? some seem swollen and softer and others compacted and hard but same material...if so, what is the normal thickness for them? thanks in advance!

They should all be the same. If you're going with extended shackles, you might consider a body lift also. A PO did that on my ute.
