I think hussar blue is one of the best colours for any 95/96, contemplating it for my 95 too (long way to go though...)

Matter of taste, but the roof rack looks off in my opinion...

At least it has plenty of space for counterweight in the back! Would be a great idea though.

It's pretty nippy as it is - now that it's a bit lighter than 'factory' - although the roof rack should help slow it down again!

Not sure about this one - what do you think about a cyclops light...

Not for me, a central Cyclops ala Rover P4 might work.

I know what you mean Derek, looks pretty cool on something the size of the camper, but a bit much on the Saab!

Pickup is looking great! I have had similar thoughts with these rooflights but looking at it on the roof it is pretty big!
I have a Lucas roof mounted spotlight stashed away for my second 95 project - it will probably be stashed away for a while longer!

Finally getting somewhere with the bed cover...



it now does this!



with the help of some Vectra (yeah I know - GM stuff!) bonnet hinges.



I plan to finish it in a waterproof material - like mohair, but cheaper - which is the same stuff I used for the sunroof on the orange 95.

Very neat. Does it open with a "finger tip" or is it ready for the bike rack?
Some domed nuts would look the mutts on the hinges.

Great work! Is it/ will you make it waterproof? To me that always seems the hardest bit with rigid load covers.

Looking good - does the tailgate drop or is it fixed?
