Timothy Mark Dawson was one of my customers and after a short illness he sadly lost his fight with Cancer earlier this year (2018). He loved his Nissan Elgrand like most of us do and spent quite a bit of money on it having it vinyl wrapped in satin purple and had quite a few aftermarket Japanese parts fitted. When he passed away the family were having difficulty selling the truck as he had customised it to his own taste and not others.
I had for a long time wanted to build a custom pick up truck out of an E51 Elgrand so I bought the Elgrand and was planning on building a one of a kind custom pick up in Tim Dawsons memory and along the way want to raise donations for Cancer Research UK via a Just Giving page so your donation go directly to them. The DVLA changed a few rules a short while meaning it is now impossible convert a none european vehicle into a pick up because at the time of conversion quite a lot of key items need to carry a european E mark like lights, seat belts, air bags and glass. So we have decided to build the Elgrand still in its bus form but for car shows and drag racing.
We plan to take have it back on the road during 2021 in its present form for racing with a complete strip and detail over winter 2021 ready to hit the drag strip and UK car shows in 2022. Dont forget to give whatever you can in donations for Cancer Research UK by using the link. (Dont forget the donations go to Cancer Research UK and not to us). Thanks
Thank You Brian Willoughby BMR Automotive
