And, what is that canister plugged into the dash? (It seems to say "Electric Fuel Pump"?) Whatever it is, it looks mighty odd.

You are right Thomas. At concours on the weekend there was a roundie ute, which a guy had just made - and done a really impressive job.


You can see it in these photos:

All the best people these days are taking old utes and converting then into SLCs.

I so want to see a SEC ute. The longer doors & wheelbase are ideal.

Hi,

I've been today to the workshop where the above mentioned SEC pickup stands ... quality is not good, car is in bad condition. Big loudspeakers in the back ...
