Sooo pretty. I can only hope I find a ute (or van at a pinch) soon and can lavish similar attention.

Yes the bump stop is for bonnet vibration, all long bonnet cars should have them

Very nice looking van. The only thing that I would change is the exhaust exit position to the rear of the vehicle to make sure the fumes stay outside of the vehicle. Had the problem with my Ute's exhaust on the passenger side when I had it. Fumes nearly killed the co pilot. Quick trip to the exhaust place sorted the problem. Do you still have the wheels off the ute? I would be interested for my 2 door if available.

Hi Mick
Wheels were the first thing that I got rid of when I got the ute I absolutely hate mini lights

Thanks Ben. My 2 door is due for a fair bit of work shortly (second restoration
since I have had it) and I thought a new set of wider wheels would be good. Nothing set in concrete just yet.

My first morrie was a ute converted to a tray top, like your one.

I am kind of partial to your ute rather then the panel van......LOL only because I have a panel van.

And after seeing your ute, I like it (Except for the wheels)
