I must also add that I was always a fan of pre 67 cars, but after seeing 1584's car at Sandown I am starting to dig on late models too.

The photo of the orange beastie actually hacked me off. Every other picture on the page had the owners name, I thought it was a bit rude to be honest, but then not entirely surprising for the Volksworld clique..... Rolling Eyes

Don't sit on the fence Scoops

I noticed the no name thing too.

Bothered?.....



Nah lol!


I can say it was entertaining seeing behind the 'scenes' at the Volksworld show. You just can't take it too seriously. I know I don't. Wink

The plans are sort of like this at the mo

Should be in bit's in the next month or 2 thinking that it needs to go back to a late looker wings bumper engine lid.. afro[/quote]

This is the sort of plan at the moment Twisted Evil

Complete strip down.
Get the floor, body edges, suspension and engine tin sand blasted.
1500 or GT box.
Keeping the the same motor but will get a couple of little mods.
All new brakes, steering and suspension.
All new rubbers.
All new interior.
All new chrome.
Mag industry, gas burners or something along those lines.
Narrowed beam.
Paint the floor, suspension, and tin in 2K black..
Paint the body in the OG 2K metalic blue .
Upright 70's wings, lights and rear panel.
Europa bumpers.
Narrowed adjustable with drop spindles and disk.

And what ever repairs need doing. Off the top of my head..

Both heater channel bottom plates. Due to the body being welded to the floor.
Rear section of the drivers heater channel.
Drivers inner front arch.
Pair of doors.
Spare wheel well.
Rear panel.
Not sure about the floor pans but i think they're pretty good.

That little lot should keep me going for a couple days lol!

I would do a bot of research on that score Rich, surely if you are not doing it as a business there is fercl all they can do?
Obviously if you out there gringding till 10:00 at night then people are going to get chaffed off but.......I did have a quick look on the web but couldn't find the rules and regs...

All I can say Rich is that if you think your current standard of work is substandard then if you can really take your time in a unit then you will be able to turn out some really high quality Dubs!!!

Cheers dude... All me and Frizz keep saying is how sh1t they really are, if i'm inside i'm 80% sure that they will be 100 times better then what i'm doing now. But that may not be the case i'm sure will find out soon enough. lol!

Well as i said i've got a unit now and the bug went in BUT it's back out again cos Carl needs a car to use due to being screwed over with the bay..

So the resto is on hold but gives me chance to hoard some more bits for her.. Twisted Evil
