    yuppers! Saw 4 RHD's for sure. Saw a Toyota SUV in Weyburn, Saw a dark blue mini in regina on Victoria ave east, Saw a silver kei van on Albert st south, and leaving regina today we passed a honda acty on the highway with some lighting bolt decals under the windshield.

    Also some bad new, looks like "Flatlanders" in regina has gone tits up. 2 trucks on the lot and signs for building are down and a giant CLOSED on the front windows... he sold reconditioned mini's and LHD converted ones.

    Yay! Stuff didn't electrocute himself!

    I've been using mine to help tote materials from the pile of miscellaneous lumber down in my "lower shed" (1/4 mile from the house) to where I'm building a chicken coop. Going through a LOT of scrap lumber...and gives me an excuse to take a hot lap of the property in the truck.

    Nice job Kitty!

    That looks great, and wood is always nice for a deck like that.
    Mine's metal and everything slides around when I drive.

    Good work girl!

    I'm looking into figuring something out for the sides though... maybe more wood. :eek:

    Thanks Norm, I made sure to get pressure treated wood so it won't decay over the weather changes and abuse. :D good stuuf.

    I'm thinking out rhino lining the whole rear cab for fun, hehe. As a future goal.

    The wood looks good..I also checked on Rhino lining but the quote of $900 seemed a tad high...I ended up using a do it yourself duraliner kit..not as good as the Rhino liner but at $40 who can complain

    I would probably buy the paint myself and apply it myself to save those extra hundred dollars.

    I just got two trucks out of the paint shop. I used the same paint that the US Army uses on their trucks. Its about 80.00 bucks a gal. One gal. will do one truck. It already has the catalyst mixed in the paint. Stir and shoot. Its a really tough rough texture. We hand sand it, run it over to the paint shop. They tape it, wipe it down with a cleaner and bam its done. 157.00 a pop to shoot one + the 80.00 a gal. The painter say they love the paint because it flows really well and cleans up easy. Oh you can get the same color in a spray can for touch up. I think its 18.00 a can. They have black, desert sand, od green.
