Next jobs on the list are:
Chequer plate the centre bonnet section (so all the bonnet is virtually done), I was actually thinking of mounting a spare wheel on the bonnet, but after weighing up the pro's and con's I think visibility would be greatly reduced.
Debadge and chequer plate tailgate.
Plastikote the rear chrome bumper and plastic handle surround on the tailgate.
52" LED light bar at the front above windscreen deflector.
22" LED light bar above the front number plate.
And either 2 x rear LED spots on the canopy or another lightbar.

You certainly keep yourself busy with the truck!

Looking clean and tidy, good job.

Na, don't do that yourself, best take it to the garage.

Few more jobs done over the last few days (in between the shocking weather)
Complete tailgate chequer plated (pics to follow).
I was going to fit a 20" or 22" light bar on a number plate bracket, like this below:

But after reading a thread on here, I realised I could get a 32" in the recess above the number plate, so I went with that.
32" curved 405 watts.
I then went with a 52" Curved 675 watts for the roof.
Now I've seen a few people with that size lightbar on a Navara, but it's only when it arrived that I realised just how blooming large they are!
I know I should have measured, but I never realised they are wider than the truck lol
Luckily I have the over screen visor fitted, otherwise it would have been going back.
The visor has a really sturdy metal frame underneath, so I have used that as a mounting point.
I've had to fashion a couple of brackets out of stuff I already had, but I'm happy with the end result.
Tomorrow I'll wire them in properly.
Not decided yet whether to wire them to main bean, or independently switched for on, or both on the same switch.
