I can still make em Sam!... But wouldn't consider it till the 66 is done! Ask me then, sorry dude!




I can't wait to get to the creative metal work! afro




The plan is to keep it on the road as I do it! (I'll be driving it around with big holes cut in it! Laughing ) If all goes well it'll only be off the road over the 4 day weekend at easter for paint! afro

Thanks for the offer of the moo cow interior Rolling Eyes But I think it is unfair to peel a cow just to adorn the door cards lol!

And as for the filling dude, go down the lead and brass route, it is old school skool confused Well it is just proper lol!

Cheers guys! Very Happy

Rich, I'm saving that for when I'm really in the shit (EMO?! Laughing )! lol!


Well, we've removed the rear valance, pulled the 1200 out and bolted the 1600 in! afro


...But couldn't get the 1600 started! No So stuck the 1200 back in!!! lol!
The 1600 was really tight to turn over. we had spark and lots of fuel! Think it was just turning over too slow to start! Rolling Eyes



Impy, it'll need a bit of tweekin to get it to fit a later car as the seats and the door cards are slightly differend. Yours if you want em! afro

As it's gettin a repaint soon I thought it'd be easier to cut the rear valance off and make it a bolt on!

As the 1200 went back in it needed a bit of tweekin! 009 distributer makes it fly when the revs pick up but still runs lika a bag of crap low down!... nevermind, still better than it was! lol!
