Well my little Vit is going in for its MOT, Cam belt, new tyres  Cool  and an exhaust tomorrow, so I spent the last two weekends tiding it it up an giving it a bit of a different look, I bought it cheap two years ago and in all honesty its not cost me anything other than a service that I did myself. This last month it has had a new battery, windscreen and what's listed above to be done.
So I thought I would treat it to a new look. I have painted the underside with smootrite gloss black, rubbed down and sprayed the wheels, sprayed the grille, stuck a new screen sticker on, given it a bloody good clean inside and out fixed anything that wasn't working, cleaned and serviced the locking hubs and done a cheap trick with some foam gym mat's to put a new floor covering in the back.

The truck used to look like this.



It now looks like this.









The new gym flooring load area.



There's still a few bits to do when the weather warms up a bit of rust on the front of the wings wants some attention and I need to order some black roof bar pads to complete the look. I will take it out next weekend and get some vids of it getting muddy.  Very Happy

nice work, i like the gym floor in the back Very Happy

when i get round to it (no emergency) I might have a go at re-doing the carpet etc, the current one has seen better days, anybody who happened to fancy lending a hand would be welcomed with bacon butties and tea-a-plenty Wink as i say though, no rush to do it just yet!

Done a bit more since the pics the other week, sprayed the door tops black and got some black bodyglove roof par pads. I am quite impressed with how it's looking now, going to loose red North Face sitckers from under the indicator's and canoe stig sticker from the bonnet edges.
