Laurie ... is that at Robbie's garage in Dubai where you did your very first AEV highline work? Lots of progress at Robbie's if thats really the case .


Hahah yeah I've seen what some of those guys in Pakistan are able to do! I think another advantage is communication - they have a common language and can probably explain what needs to be done better. In the mixing-pot of the UAE I think one of the problems is I can't speak their language and they can't understand mine, so there's no chance of getting the work done exactly how I want it.


Yes the work is being done at Robbies Garage. Lots of new equipment and people there now.

Tail Section extension almost done - a little more work on the passenger side and some more seam welding to finish up.

Here you can clearly see the winch mount and trailer hitch.



Reinforcement plates and bumper mounts.



Rear view - frame is looking quite long now!

New Air Conditioner in the build-room is like an ice-box so we can expect more progress now

Thinking of dropping my plans for a vertically installed sunroof as a rear window and replacing it with a powered sliding rear window from a previous generation Ford Ranger.

Reason being - more practical / less show-truck. I really want to get the most out of the space behind the seats and allowing for the glass panel to slide down will kill the space.

Based on some dimensions online - here's my best attempt at a photoshop to scale...






(rough drawing - frames are not that thick - that's just how I will cut it from MDF on a router to check )


Thoughts? The sides are a bit more angled but I think that's as good as I'm going to get for something off the shelf?

Keeping in mind there will be a cage supporting the rack , those sides will not be all that visible - I think I'm okay with it

So - here's the Ford Ranger rear window dimensions cut out 1:1 scale. I'm happy with it. The angle at the sides is a little different but it still looks good IMO. Time to order more parts

The awkward angle of the sides is the only thing throwing me off by it but if you want access and sliding glass...

Had another idea for a part borrowed from another truck

Found these tail lights designed for a 1967 Chevy Truck:



Hoping the manufacturer can do a variation of the reverse light with an amber colour - and that will give me export-style white / red / amber lighting

Then will need to re-think the shape of the groove channel as it comes around the corners - but for now here's a quick photoshop...

Love both ideas, very unique. I think the angles will look more natural one the window is in
