Freestyler's Ute

Post  pez350 on Wed 09 Dec 2009, 4:13 pm

I'm going to drop another member in it here, and give everyone a link to the progress shots of his ute:

Some nice paint work under way there Freestyler! Should look great when it's all done.

Very Happy

Utes are cool - wish I could get that HQ Sandman Ute that was on evilbay a while back.

I saw some pictures of a Panel Van that was converted to a ute a while back.

If I can find the link or the pictures I'll put them up here. Personally, I think it's a no-go to convert a van to a ute, but other would disagree.

Cheers

Was that the van that was called Blue Image?
I remember seeing it on EBAY and it had a different dash in it.

im with u pez. i think panel van should stay as a pano. seems cruel to cut one up. if it was really rusted out the whole roof i can see y someone would make it a ute. but there r enough nice utes around Smile

that ute looks really good too, coming along nicely Smile

The colours called,

'Ally Welly's Kermit Lettuce Alone Citric Lime Green'

A mouth-full is'nt it.
No codes mixed this up myself with a few bases from the local paint shop.
Was based on a Ford Citric Acid (that's what it was originally), just added some blue crap till i liked it.

Cheers for the kind words, looking to finish for Colac Custom car show Jan 16th.
All welcome, massive weekend of customs, prob over 300 cars last year.

Cheers Allan

At least it's not PINK! Sandy stripes would look good.

Hey Al, Great job, the ute looks cool ( Greeeen is Niiiiice), Might come down for that car show but would be a long drive at 3200 RPM, but with a bit of help from my two mates down west Vic I could be talked into it, Cheers , Eastern Vic Vanner.

Would it help if you stopped in Geelong for a night, with promises of a BBQ and beer? We could then make a convoy of 2 to the show the next morning. bounce

Checkers

Yeah buddy going all out with the mock-up.
Got a set of purple/blue/orange sandman stripes, 14x8" all round gts wheels, full black reupholstered interiour, tinted windows, P/s, looking to lower & a front spoiler on route....

Just done the blackouts, another 1200grit rub down, more clear, sand then buff, then stickers....
Wow that's loads when you write it all down, couple of busy days coming up.

Cheers Al.

Oh yeah plenty with a capital 'S' for sandman to do....

Although finished colour sanding today, even got the tailgate buffed,
decided to add the money shot, been a long time coming...



Probably finish off a little more clear tomorrow over blackouts, then more buffing & assembly of front end, and start putting the goodies back inside.
By the new year, she'll be very close.

Cheers Allan.

Everything's for sale at a price.

Always was building to sell.
Probably like to drive it around a bit, we don't see many of these on the roads.

Got into an argument with a guy the other day that Sandman Ute's don't exist, and that being said at the end of the day it's only a Holden Ute.... Pffftttt - i saw red!!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Al,

I'll keep pictures coming interior next. Outside paint now all finished.
