Skilpad (1996 GQ SGL 4.8 5 speed manual)

Post by Anthony Forgey » 25 Oct 2018 08:14

Alex Roux owns Skilpad

Skilpad is a GQ lwb previously owned by Charles Duckitt

Here's some of the history I found:

The details of the 4.8 motor installed

Stainless steel bar work

Previous owners' thread "Skilpad"

Previous owner's "for sale" ad with some details of work done

Alex had Dynamat done at a car audio shop

Then Skilpad spent some time with me. There were a few smaller items Alex wanted sorted out, but the big thing was the rear drawer system.

Wow! Brilliant! I haven't given a drawer system any thought as the bought ones won't cater for my needs. Yours through is well thought out and executed.
