That's bucket of green crap to you. Thanks guys.
nah looks good, soooo different to what it used to be
why isn't the metal inside the car treated coated in stone guard or something to prevent rust?
i'm surprised you wouldn't have done that before painting the outside.
Yeh, you're not wrong. Its definately different, but all in all I'm very happy with the new look. I just can't wait to get it back home and start putting it back together.
The inside is getting a coat of black kill rust enamel with a brush. That's getting done as soon as it gets back from the paint shop tomorrow. To be honest, I just ran out of time to do the inside before it got painted. It had to be painted today or it wouldn't have been done for the wedding. It's no big deal though, it will get done.
ah same way we did the floor of mortons HQ, rust kill and then stone guard, painted on thick with a brush.
Yea i didn't think you would've left it like that, that's what confused me
Looking Mint! :whistling
Good job Sir!
Do a UC dash conversion and it'll be perfect
Haha, not a chance. LX dash is just about assembled. Looks fantastic.
Gosh it's been far too long since I checked on this build.
Looking fantastic 383_Hatch. Only 2 weeks to go; I hope everything goes smoothly. Any start up's yet??
Thanks mate. Everything is going ok so far, however I'm really starting to doubt it's going to be finished enough to actually drive it there. It's got heaps of little things to go like wiring up the lights, indicators and such. Then I still have to build an exhaust. So, I'll probably end up trailering it to the place and dropping it off a few hundred metres down the road and driving it in. The outside will be finished visually, so it's definately going to be there one way or the other. Hoping to fire the motor this weekend.
So anyway, I bolted some stuff on it today. Here are some pics (pretty average).
Oh and one just to annoy reaper. LX Dash in....
The photos really do it no justice, it looks killer in person.
wow - just fkn wow
Thanks mate. I havn't had the time to do any updates as I've been flat out working on it. Trust me, it is progressing though. Stay tuned for an update.
Thanks for the thread...what an amazing car rebuild...i had a 76 ss hatchback
Would kill to still have it !!
So, just a quick pic to show you where I'm at as I really don't have the time to do a proper update. I'm too busy working on it...
This was taken last night.
I'm lost for words so I'll just keep clicking like each time you post an update.
It's almost better than looking at porn, almost.
and we have a wiener
So, just a few pics of how it sits as of tonight. The body is pretty much done, apart from lining up the drivers guard to the nosecone (two person job), painting and fitting the tailgate and putting the windscreen in. This week will be all about getting the motor running and the rest of the mechanicals sorted. The interior is also mostly in. It looks a bit average with the new colour scheme, but at the moment it's all that I've got so it'll have to do. I'll get a new interior when the wedding is done and dusted and I've gained some more funds...
So, pics. You'll have to excuse the dust, it's filthy from sitting in the shed. It'll be getting a good clean on Friday before the wedding.
