In that case I’ll give you 3 years to find me that SC!
OH Shot. I take it that it,s my fault that you want a SC Ute. I'll guess I have to keep looking You never know it takes time. It took 10 years to find a decent 72 DC. That wasn't to rusty and was butchered beyond believe.
Ok That 72 sounds perfect I’ll pick it up at yours next month!
Things are starting to move along quite quickly know,with the backs of the gates and the rear door being painted. Other parts have also been painted and started bringing them home like the engine lid front grill, seat pedestal and smaller internal parts like vent tower,side vent covers and gate latches. Starting to find it harder to find storage room for all the bits n pieces until the car comes back so I can put them on the car.
Bl**dy nice Wayne. Looks immaculate. Your eye for detail is amazing (or excellent!). Look forward to seeing this recent DC in person.
That workmanship looks so, so, sweet, well done, cheers
Wow! The finish looks fantastic, you must be happy!?
I'm happy,painter worried as he has to replicate the finish on the body. I'm watching
Looking good Wayne
He'd be worried with your watchful eye.
And yet, if it was being done 35 years ago, the attitude would be, “It’s just an old work truck, how fussy do we need to be”.....
How times have changed....
And the price/values of the buses! But it's a bit about 20 yrs from now (or longer).
It sure has, as parts were hard to come by ,know most parts are readily available. They were really used for what they were meant for, lucky they survived to be able to become desirable to restore.
Caught my painter working today,instead of having lunch.(As I normally turn up around lunch time on Friday) Putting a coat of paint on the gates,and a few smaller pieces,inching closer at least to being done and dusted. They looked alright wet looking throw glass.
It's good when you turn up and they are actually doing work on your vehicle and it's not sitting in a corner.
Caught him @ the right time
Looks really great
I want to see it all together!
Great progress though.
Bringing home two of the gates,the third wasn't finished yet.
The back of the two front doors also had been painted
I've also been making 1mm spacers to go under the gates to the body and the latches as well. The spacers have been made from poly carbonate (plastic)
Spacers .... Nice idea.
Wayne you are killing me.
