    I may want to post photos from the road as we drive to Winona next week, so bear with me while I experiment a little.

      that is such a nice mini pickup truck! Are those genuine Wood and Pickett flares i assume? They look so good.

        Thanks, Tim. The flares are W&P style, but came from Somerford. I actually liked them better than some of the W&P products I've seen. The long-wheelbase cars need a little bit more flare than saloons do.

        Also, Hammering Man Gunnar put quite a bit of work into making sure the quality of the flares matched the quality of the bodywork.

          Dan,
          Continuing Education.... Why is the rod shift housing not under the tunnel?

            Don, the replacement floors had no hole for the shift lever, so I had to mount the shifter on top.

            No, really... I decided that having the shifter under the floor often leads to gear changes that are too precise.

            No, really... people who race Minis in England use this setup to gain more clearance when they slam the cars down close to the ground. My blue car came from England with the modified steady and shift bars, so I decided to keep them in the pickup.

              no really. . . which one is it?

              and which carpet kit did you order? is that dynamat, or some other sound deadener? is it applied directly to the inside of the door? i see a patch of something on the passenger floor? what's that?

              where did you get the bed cover buttons? i know chris had the canadian flag cover. did you just elave the same ones on there? do you have any of the top cover stuff? the little angle brackets, the cinch downs, the canopy bars, etc? i don't see any of it mounted, and was just curious.

              did you ever have the front interior plates for the door pockets, or did you ditch them during the body work?

              i'll probably just bug you a looootttttt in winona. just got lots of questions. (wish i had a nickle for every one of them. i could pay gunner a lot more a lot faster!!)

                OK... carpets are from Newton Commercial. That's Dynamat Extreme on the doors. I planned to slather that all around the interior, but ran out of time. It'll have to wait for my return. I'm taking ear plugs.

                The patch on the floor is actually a Zip-Lock plastic bag. Every part on this truck has been in a Zip-Lock bag at one time or another. Hardware for the tonneau came with the pickup. I had to buy new snaps where the originals had to be drilled out, but the twist-lock fasteners came with. I think they're readily available, though.

                I have none of the hardware for installing the tilt (the canvas canopy), and don't intend to look for any. I like the visibility that expanse of bed gives me.

                I have kick panels for the pocket corners; just haven't had the time to put them on.

                I don't mind the questions, Dave, but you've given me an idea. I, too, wish I had a nickel for every question, so each one is going to cost you five cents.

                No, really...
