I think it will be very similar to my SC build, but Matt has opened up my color scheme eyes a bit and may go with a nice gloss dark grey with some nice matt black rims.

I like the luxury of power windows , central locking and the VS short shifter is soooooo smooth that those items are in the build. I think I'm going to glass up a rooftop console with drop down screen n such for my lil terrors to keep amused on long drives :)
The cabs are so big in these things I need to place some nice vanity lights in the rear somewhere...
I'm sure lots of things will change in the build and this is more of a year long project I think.....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ yo matt, have you got an original door panel I could get a template of on your DC, the main one is the crew door and maybe a pic of the interior and how it is arranged...as in door handle position and such............
or maybe i could swing by and check out the crew cab side of things and we could have a nice tall glass of lemonade or water........... :lol:

Hey Peter, thanks for the "heads up" I was more after what they look like finished inside, as in the door card and such.
I was looking for a front drivers door though so will pm BJ about the ones he has for sale....

Piccies


Given that I am at this stage and doing the same thing to my front - more piccies - I am only averaging about an hour a week on mine so you will be ahead of me.

That raised badge section is annoying, but will have to go.
