Sound's good , any chance of making a mould and resin bodies of this and/or the 6 wheel body when they are done ? I know a lot of people who would be looking for either option ...

Any photo's of the finished ute ?

Well this ( http://excoboard.com/exco/index.php?boardid=13326 ) is one of my other online home's and there are several guy's on here as well as Ausmini ( http://www.ausmini.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=2 where we have a model section) who would love a Tamiya mini ute body . If it's possible to make a body and floor from your body you'd be able to get a bit of hobby money out of it .

checkmate wrote:I use to work with a guy that built a V8 Mini ute, his name is Frank Irrilli and him and Kelvin Brown built a yellow mini ute with a tunnel rammed Ford V8. It made the top ten at the Summernats one year, if anyone can remember it.

Checkmate , would you still have any contact details for Frank or Kelvin , I have a mini pickup fanatic friend after more details on the V8 ute . For anyone interested there are more photo's in this thread on Ausmini (looks like another one to add to the future builds list....) http://www.ausmini.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=58483

Looks like a Corvette eater to me. What a terrific conversion that V8 Mini is, and what a great model car it would make. Thanks for sharing.
