When a collector drops off his two HJ47 Landcruiser Ute’s and asks for the original trays, who are we to say no.
Turns out some of our fabricators remember making these trays back in the early 80’s.
Given TL Engineering is about to turn 50 Years young, many of our fabricators are still working for the company and relished in the chance to return to the old days and weld “art” into what could be seen as just another steel tray.
One of the utes will be returned to the famous WA Red & White Auxiliary colour scheme and the other is the Fire Chief ute in Sandy Taupe.
This before and after photo shows the raw utes on arrival to TL Engineering, the after image on the bottom is from the day of handover with the trays returned to their former glory.
Keep your eyes out for the Auxiliary Ute due to appear at the upcoming Newdegate Field Days 2019 September 4-5th.
