If you mean I ran an orange extension cord .... but no, not yet on power, soon though if I still am gainfully employed.

Ok but don't be a bonehead like me and forget 240V as well. You'll regret it one day.

I am seriously considering a generator rather than running a line. I don't go out there that much and that way I will have backup power for the house.

Chiquita looks like a keeper. I am going to do some tidying like the galvanized trim and I bought a hardtop from Dave for the cold months.

Ha ha! Charles, I did think of that, and I do have my welder right next to the outlet.... but not plugged in and I haven't used it yet. It seems like you only need the tools you don't have.

Sweet! You'll want to change a few BR110 to BR130 at the bottom of BeachRunner4.html though.

It is actually a one off color selected by the owner. I think we named it "cape sand".
Limestone is quite a bit lighter.

The owner of BR110#3 (the tan truck) got into off roading since he purchased it, so it is getting a bunch of protection gear, sliders, etc etc Swamper SSRs and lockers. He is an older gent so no big lift (yet).

BR110 #1 is back for a full color change and a bunch off mild off road goodies as well.

I'll take a look. Thanks.

Actually the BR130 will be a one shot deal. Making doors that are 10" longer will be fun for the guys once, but I doubt that is something they would want to do all the time.

Yes, it is an upper lamp guard. The customer wants 4 hella lights on the cage, but he drives in heavy brush, so we needed to make it so the lights would not get cleaned off.
More info on the page wehn I get it posted.

4 doors and 1 tailgate on the BR130.
Same set up as a BR110, but the owner is like 6'10" so the truck needs to fit him better, therefore 10" in each side door and a different set up for seat box and all so that he can actually drive it.

Sounds like a basketball player is going to be pimping a custom defender!

Reminds me of one of those police academy movies.

I am trying to think were I saw extended doors ... back of Mike Slade's 145 I think.

It should not be too bad to do. Getting sheet brimabright for the reskin could be a challenge. Too bad you junked those spare 110 roofs. I know I am planning on saving the big sheet that comes out of mine when I fit the dormobile top to it.

143 is looking nice too. I am surprised the owner of BR1 is going for a color change. Has to be a lot of money to strip down a bulkhead and respray, but I guess if you can afford a BR, you can afford to repaint a BR.
