  • PS13 – Attack Mode

    You probably already figured this out by now but I am in no rush with this project, I have been waiting for a bit of headspace to get a clear direction on where I am going with the car, I was motivated by the fact that I had to shift it when the Hilux returned, […]

  • PS13NA – Roll Cage Progress

    Just a quick single photo of the roll cage in the PS13 that I’m working on. Im struggling with one hand but I’m getting through it slowly, I wanted to get it rolling and finished before the Hilux arrived home but it looks like it might take a little longer. Oh well no rush, its […]

  • PS13NA – Getting Somewhere

    It probably comes as no suprise to you but I love metalwork……… I dont love the burns, the mess, the noise, the taste of steel, or the gritty feeling after I have finished a night in the garage, but what I do love is seeing my visions come to life and the amount of strength […]

  • ETS Drift Ute – Taking a step back

    Not having the Hilux in my garage has given me a new appreciation for it, our time apart has given me time to reflect on its upbringing, a frantic three years of intense concentration towards the build suddenly came to a halt when it was loaded into a container and hit the seas bound for […]
