Timothy Mark Dawson sadly lost his fight with Cancer early in 2018, he was a customer of mine buying parts for his Nissan Elgrand E51 from my shop. He was a member of the ElgrandOC a forum dedicated to the ownership, upkeep and modification of these fantastic high performance luxury people carriers. After Tims death the vehicle was surplus to the families requirements and I stepped in as I was looking for a base vehicle to convert into a custom pickup truck. To make the car look "right" a lot of fabrication and modification work has to be done to make the car strong and yet lighter than the original because plans are not only to be a Custom Show Pickup but a Street and Strip Drag racing pickup.
A project thread has been opened up in the site and several other Elgrand groups are being kept up to date on the progress.

Please show your appreciation for the dedication, hard work and skill this build will need to complete and put your hand in your pockets for a very worthy cause so that people like Tim can survive and recover and not be just another needless loss to their families and colleagues.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.
