So after my last wall, two DD 9915s in a Volvo 240 Station wagon had some issues, it was time to start fresh! I wanted to build something that I could go all out on, something big, loud and almost over the top.

Scanned the newspapers for a few weeks, looking for a good van or perhaps my ideal available car, Isuzu Trooper 2 door long wheel base. This car is good for a wall. It's cheap, square and has a large cargo area which is flat on the floor.. The 'B' pillar is 'thick'. The front doors are very short and the windscreen is very flat. The roof has big channels in it which add strength to stop flexing. Let the hunt begin!


Okay so a quick trip to 'Koondoola', a right ghetto to look at an advertised car. One Holden Jackaroo, faded red, two door long wheel base petrol motor for $1600. After some quick negotiations (waving cash around desperate seller's faces seems to change their minds fast :) ) and we had a deal struck, $1100.

This car is identical to the Isuzu Trooper and never really sold well in Australia, with much more feirce 4WDs easily available in Aust, they never really had a purpose.

Here's how it looked the afternoon I got her home.

Humble beginnings they say.

I broke the windscreen on the way home, slammed it with my fist saying to a friend "Wow this thing will flex really easily!" and the damn thing cracked all the way across. Damn. :P

Painted the internals with lots and lots and lots and lots of resin. Then finished it in purple just because..

Posted Image

I had to be inside the box to paint it. It wasn't fun.

Posted Image

Put new shoes on it and made sure it still drove on sand

Posted Image

New seats. Mm leather!
