    Just keep an eye on it.

    If you don’t drive it a lot and the wrap gets wet it will rust out your pipes quickly.
    Even if it doesn’t get wet from rain, I have heard condensation forms

    If you use it daily it shouldn’t be a problem

    Love the way members keep updates, with no mention of the hours involved to move to the next stage. :D

    OK, those of us that have have done it realise, and especially those of us that do it for the first time, taking even longer to reach the target………

    But some of these rebuilds, can actually look to the casual observer, like the home Reno programs on TV, where it looks likes you can do a whole bathroom in just 60 minutes. :eek:

    Just an observation, and I for one, can see, and appreciate the painstaking hours you are putting it, to get the awesome result!

    Very well done, and keep us posted. :)

    Cheers it's taking longer than I planned but it's getting there
    Initially I thought 12months for the resto but extra rust repairs and few other delays meant we passed that deadline probably was a bit ambitious anyway
    We're currently 14 months in and hopefully should be ready for some trips next summer

    Some more work completed on interior 5075E509-2D25-4CD0-9CA9-70D3872F23DF.jpeg 7F2388FC-A2C1-44B2-88C5-4B1F18773CF8.jpeg 13E91E12-A600-4444-ACA7-360BB677074C.jpeg 22E827FB-7B6F-409E-B2E0-5297C8023578.jpeg

    I have been keeping account so to give people and idea of the resto cost from what we started with including any tooling we bought which isn't a real cost as we will have the tooling for the next project

    We are very close to final spend but that is doing everything ourselves only out sourced work will be the pop top canvas and rear bed cushions/covers, we will be somewhere around $37k for parts and materials
    That includes engine rebuild and DBW fuel injection so could be cheaper if we left it on carbs

    It would easily be double that if we got a professional resto company to do all the work , haven't been keeping track but at a guess we will be somewhere around 400hrs
