Re: Fordor ute conversion

If you enlarge the head-on pic, you can see it's definitely a mirror on the fender (mudguard in Aussie-speak). When I said it was too low to do much good, I was thinking LHD - forgot you Down Under...

Re: Fordor ute conversion

Sedan-to-truck conversions are sometimes done in the hot rod world to make a "Super Cab". I've also heard about conversions being done to get more fuel during WWII. Actually, rationing was as much...

Re: MARC Promo and NAPA Auto Parts

That's why I have two email addresses - one for my "real" communication and one that's likely to be spammed. I log on to the latter occasionally and just delete all the junk.

Re: Using slots in package tray

Maybe I'm missing something but wouldn't the dimensions be the same as the original bracket except 1-5/8" longer on the leg that bolts to the seat riser?
