Cool A Tassie Boy and his BG

Hi there,

I've been reading threads on this forum for nearly four years now. I've asked a few questions, read some good tips, and now my car is getting on quite nicely. All panels and trims are accounted for (finally).
Severely stone-chipped panels are starting to be fixed.

I'm pretty sure I'll never sell this car. I bought it from my Dad's colleague who was moving interstate (it's pretty expensive to take a car from Tassie). $300!!!
Running. With QLD rego. That meant I had to have it pit passed... which cost $1500. New exhaust system right through, new windscreen, new CV boots.

And from there on, I've just slowly upgraded stuff.

Also, I'm a neat freak and I love my car. (I may have borderline OCD)
So, it gets polished and waxed quite frequently. and vacuumed.

So, thanks for all the unwitting help.

When I've finished my bumper I'm gonna do a thread on how to prep the surface and what materials and methods to use etc. (my friend who's helping me is a panel beater, so I've got some trade tips that work wonders!)

I've uploaded some photos. have a look and tell me what you think

Here's my album. Hope it works

Time for a DOHC swap at least. Get rid of single cammer. Chassis looks nice and clean though.
