Thanks fellas.
Had Caleb helping today and got the body on the chassis and can now get it all set up.
Took a lot of pushing and twisting and a little swearing.

Looks good Dave. What final colour is planned? I have a set of those wheels as well, on a 66 Mustang. Left overs from our Val Charger.

G'day Frank.I love garish so it might be the orange similar
to the McDonald coupe.
With wheels of a green colour I think.

Few things that have been done.
Not my welding on this engine mount.Got a mate that is better at it than me.

The nice piece that sits below the windscreen. Well pieces till I made a new bit to replace the rusty sections.

Image

Sat the bench seat in to see how it fits. It's from a small jap van and fits bloody good. It has the ability to
lay fully back,raise or lower and spin around to allow access to the back.
Only problem is that I have to cut the base down 'cause even shortarse me sits too high.
Will lose the up down and spinning setup. Bugger.

My sister checking it out.

Made the guard brackets with some finial finish :shock: :lol:
