Hey all not so long ago my mate rolled his shorty insurance nocked him back due to demerit points and for not informing them for the speeding fines.
I've just rang my insurance company and told them everything,(dont get caught out !!!)
any way my mate was thinking of converting it to a ute,but then i found a gq cab of a st ute for a good price just wondering if any one could tell me if this would be the better option thats if its possible ofcoarse.

Cheers paul

I think you will find that , he didnt inform them of what fines he had when he took out the policy , I am pretty sure you dont need to ring them every time you get a fine .Venus Bay

yep, with some policies you do need to inform insurance co every time you fall foul of plod. Regardless, you would have to let them know about new infringements with each annual renewal...

Eric VERY WRONG... These days they have found ANOTHER LOOPHOLE TO SCREW YOU WITH...

Every fine you get you have duty of disclosure....

Mates son found out the hardway too. :( Cost him $5000

Yep sorry buddy my mate rang them when he got all fired up and he said that they should back pay him when he first lost a point all they said is they will send out some paper work which would be about going to court which my mate cant afford to loose there for he'll have to put up with it and they know this thats what makes them pricks.

Hi, Ive thought of the ute on the shorty, but where the cab finishes will be close to the rear tyres.
If your capable, it could be done, but have you seen what the shorties look like with a chopped rear roof.
They look excellent, and thought about chopping mine for a long time, but my father wouldnt let me!!
Where are you and how much does he want for the wreck as is?
I am interested in doing up another truck.

Check with insurance as to what you can do.

Ute conversions are common, try Sandy Bowman at Aus 4wd Specialists, he has done heaps, and has 2 himself, one SWB and one LWB
