There is/was a mob called Creative Conversions in Brendale that used to do this sort of thing. Used to go past them when I worked over that way.
Haven't been over there for 6 mths or so now cause I'm old and buggered and had to retire

Leave nothing but footprints & take nothing but photos

That's about what it takes Willem plus a bit more. I helped do a extra cab we called it a 30 series, half a 60.

Because the back is a different width than behind the front doors we used Hi-lux front bumpers cut down to get the curve and then sheet steel for the back of the cab and used a rear window out of a 40 series lift up tail gate.

Along with springs & shocks, 80 series turbo motor, steel tray, body lift, 180lt fuel tank, seats etc etc, the cost was up around $40,000 which included the vehicle.

Aahhh Well 55 I wasn't going to be that ambitious. It was only a thought though. Maybe it will be less stressful to trade the old thing on a LC ute

Dont know about a single cab job, but i saw a dual cab ute conversion (single body-no tray) on a 60 series in brunswick the other week and it looked fantastic. I know Sandy Bowman at aus 4x4 in melb does them.

Cost - it aint cheap, unless you go visit Willem's house.

Brian,

We have a 100 series wagon, cut down to a dual cab. Done by Creative Conversions. Finish is pretty good, only a few minor niggles with handbrake and rear lighting. Does have 800 mm extra in the chassis.

Can't tell you the cost, I didn't pay for it.

Hooroo...

Can't remember most of it.
