Not my Ute in the pic. But mine will look just like this (maybe less dirty) before final paint. I just ordered the Smyth Ute kit.

I’ve been driving the donor car regularly for about a month since it passed state inspection, and the only remaining issue I’ve found is one of the two electric cooling fans for the radiator is dead. I’m waiting on delivery of the replacement - no big deal. So now that the car is in good shake, it’s time to cut it up. Because of course that’s the logical thing to do to a perfectly good sedan.

I’ll be detailing the whole process on Right Foot Down, and will post updates here as I go. This is where things start to get interesting!
