That should do it.

I didn't see him when I was taking the picture, it cracked me up when I was looking at them later. That's the best pic I have of the fence though

Yeah, cutting those inner pieces to fit perfectly against the darker trim piece was a bitch wasn't it?

This is actually bamboo. I didn't create those trim strips, they came pre-made in the diamond pattern. I just fit them together:

Cool I've been wanting to stretch an Isuzu Trooper Body to look like this.


The back doors are going to biggest problem.

I've already got the bodys and extra frames to work with, and plenty of doors. It will be a 2 door Trooper spliced onto the back of a 4 door.

Just never done one before, so I'm trying to get my nerve up to start cutting. That, and I have a few other projects in front of it.

But, don't we all?????

IDK if I've posted the idea I've had for an extended cab Jeep J-series truck. I'd love to have a J-series truck, but I *really* want an extended cab.

I figger an 8' bed truck with the 7' bed and stretch the cab that extra 12" should do it.

Problem is... I haven't the foggiest how to make it work. (or the truck(s) or the $$ or...)
