    Nice - It almost brings a tear to my eye.
    I'm about to drop a lot of money I don't have on a resto and looking at this one I'm seriously thinking I might have to sell my house so I can actually afford the extra required to do something this good. Just not sure how to break it to the other half (I've already doubled my original budget).

    I suppose I could just tell her its your fault.

    P.S. I reckon you drive it in the rain as much as you can. That way you will be able to see the reflections of underneath in the puddles.

    Yes it isn't something that helps pay the mortgage
    And you can blame me.

    Hey Vassy69C, did you do an upgrade with the heating system on this. Your exhaust seems to be purely that and not go through heat exchanges etc. Or am I missing something?

    Don't think Marcus takes it out if it's that cold that he needs heat. I wouldn't. ;)

    Heater boxes removed and "J" pipes used - no need for heater in Qld :confused:

    Hey Marcus

    What did you do to the inside your gates to seal the gaps around the ribs etc. Seam Sealer or other?

    I think that regardless of if the cavities are sealed or not, it is essential to get a prime coat on the inside (especialy if tepairs have been done) then a cavity wax.
    I expect initialy these may have been dipped for first coating.
    A shutz gun and rustproofing hose/ nozzle might be suitable to flood then drain with a primer of reduced zinc epoxy, super etch.?
    Then same with cavity wax once all painted with colour.
    Might necessitate a few access holes but dont have an issue with that considering the original design didnt work.

    Still has to have drain holes on the bottom ..... whether they're used for cavity waxing or other treatment ...... moisture still enters or through condensation is in there & so has to drain out &/or receive some air flow as they rust from the inside out.

    cbus / kahuna, yes I agree 100%. No point doing a great job on the outside if the inside isn't sorted as well, so drain/access holes and cavity treatment is the way I am going to go with mine.

    Back to the outside though .... keen to know what Marcus did to get such a nice job on the gaps around the ribs etc as seen in the pic.

    All Good. Just looking to do the best job I can do on everything. Learning lots from all you guys and if I can achieve anything near what Marcus has done I'll be a happy man.

    Sorry for being a bit slow on this.
    The gates do have drain holes in them but they now have rubber plugs in them.
    Rust preventative (Tectol) soaked through the gates.
    The gates were seam sealed. See photo below of the mask up
