    Thanks for the pics Mr.Steinkamp! Gosh, that was a pretty car; I remember the Ute very well from the time I was able to see it in person!

    The aluminum, in a good grade, will hold up fairly well (I work with a ton of aluminum at my work), but I chose to go with wood strips instead, and made them abit wider than the stock ones on the tailgate. Thanks for the tip on the Stainless idea, if I ever redo it all I'll definately keep it in mind!

      You are disappointing me, Dylan. Always go with stainless. <grin>

        Haha! Hey now, you gotta admit, dark polished wood strips (That I ripped to the size I wanted myself) against white upholstery in the back will look pretty good! (Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I reupholstered the entire floor area and back of my rear seat in white, and put a small layer of foam behind it to give it a more "refined" {I think thats the right word for the job} than just glueing it on bare wood. Oh, and wood; I replaced the spare tire cover, the plywood one. I definately did NOT go with a beautiful Birch to do the job. I believe if it looks good on top, it should look good under, as well. )
