I am always impressed by how Kiwi bodybuilders so often manage to successfully integrate fire engine bodywork with standard truck manufacturers' cab sheetmetal.

To understand how difficult this is, check out some other efforts on Bedford R and S chassis on this site, not to mention Ford Traders and D series!
