Hi everyone I've just finished the young family and baby scene family car routine and decided its time to buy my first ute and live again! I chose a LWB VS because I need to carry special other vehicles in the back. My ride is an ex ambulance by Jakab - Tamworth. (much different from my old HJ Caprice - my last GMH). These are 600mm longer than the standard VS and extended in the area between the cab rear and the wheel arches. I bought it with 89k on the speedo and with the ambulance pod still attached. I've been slowly bringing back to a decent ride, my ride. Returning it from an ambulance to a ute included: Disconnection of the A/C and electrics to pod Purchase of 6 side panel covers and 2 fuel tank covers for the ute tub (removed to reduce weight apparently). Purchase of rear window Purchase of tail gate Purchase of 2 bumperettes Purchase of 4 tonneau rails (they remove these for fitting of the pod Regass the A/C Relocate the number plate lights back to their original position And thats about the start. Next is: Suspension Roll bar Tub cover (hard or soft?) Sound Tint The SS wheels helped a lot and the whole unit gets heaps of second looks. Any hints, tips or comments most welcome.
