Hi!

I'm Kaspar from Estonia. It's a little country in Europe.

I don't actually own a Chevy LUV....

But I own two Bedford KBD-25's.
I bought the first in september 2015 and the second in december 2015.

So i have been building it during the winter.
It has:
a custom frame
BMW M60B30 engine and automatic transmission
Volvo 240 rear axle
Airride in the making
3link rear suspension
BMW E21 steering rack

aso.

It's very difficult do find parts for these truck. I bought the second one because it had a better cab, hood, doors.
But my fenders are the worst. They are rusted and somebody has cut them.
Maybe someone can help me with these?

Thank you ;)

The Volvo axle is a little bit wider. If I remember correctly, then it's 20mm wider each side.
But it has disc brakes and should handle a little bit more power.

The original engine was a 2,0 diesel with 34kw :O :D

Amazing work Dood...
I completely forgot about the Bedfords. It is virtually the same as a LUV, only rebadged for European export sales.
In Asia they were called the Isuzu Faster.

It looks like you have enough resources and talent that you could fabricate a new fender....

BTW... your English is excellent.
