    So as the new (well two months now) owner of Bruce i thought id continue this thread to show a few changes and keep it up to date.

    So so far I've done the following
    adjusters fitted and lowered a little ( may look at drop spindles for a better ride at some point)
    Engine has come out had a full service, changed all fuel lines
    Added twin Kadron 40's with CSP linkage
    Baby moon hub caps
    Vintage speed Exhaust
    Fitted rear bumper and powder coated black (although with incorrect brackets as i need to get the right brackets made up)
    fitted a front badge and had powder coated
    fitted a front cab bunk bed
    had a dual battery split charge system added - with now lots of fans and some LED lights
    renewed the gear shift bushes
    added new gear knob and new volkstrim steering wheel cover

    Oh and driven him.

    Love it - looks brilliant.

    Those 72 model rear bumper brackets are very hard to get!

    Cheers

    Well done - looks great - I am trying to work out how to get the car out of my basement if I take the engine out - off to the panel beater in mid January to be painted - white inside, red below windows outside, I think I will make the dash red also.
