Don't get me started on these horrible excuses for number plates on our lovley cars, it must have been 4pm on the Friday of a long weekend in the design department.

It could not be for ease of recognition by police as they have technology to pick up plates in their cars.

Let owners display or reorder their original plates
The modified cars have to wear fork lift plates!

Anyhow, here's my effort...

John .re hand signal....In the museum at Fagan park we have a 1934 Chevrolet Truck ( restored by the inmates at Bathurst gaol and then donated to us ) it has a sliding mechanical hand signal ,mounted above drivers head on top of front glass , not the pivot type like on Inter pick ups, we always tell school tours that this mechanical turn/stop indicator was introduced because drivers where loosing arms, we hope its a deterrent/awareness to the practise of people driving around with arms out the window ..I don't know if was the safety based thing back then ,cause I can recall hand signals as a boy in '50 and 60's in cars anyway , the beautiful 1932 Leyland we have ,you couldn't have your hand out the window telling the world what you were hoping to do ,you needed both your hands and passenger helping to turn the bloody steering wheel ,but hydraulic brakes to save the day ...stay well Vern

Thought you were going to say it had a sliding mechanical tray underneath to smuggle prisoners out

In the earlier FE's they were made from wood, which we're a little sturdier than the plastic

In our pano I used the fronts but left the back ones out as it gives the seat a bit of lay back

Helen, pic of white wire that links the door switches in the A pillars, the last pic shows the clip that secures the wire to the lower dash lip

Metal is like putty in your hands Pete
Couldn't help noticing your lovely Wagon petrol tank in one of those shots, the tank I'm putting in my FE Wagon looks a little rugged, not to mention holed on top
is your one from the Stainless Steel bloke that remakes them?
15  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: Fc front springs on: November 27, 2019, 01:16:28 PM
The part no on front springs is stamped on the flat end or upper end of the coil

Following from what Ken said re swapping the fronts for more strength you can also swap the rear leaf spring assemblies to beef up sedans

The rim with the flat leading edge is to suit Bosch headlight usually found on commercial and standards

The rounded leading edge is Lucas is mostly found on Specials, although not uncommon to see either used

Looking good, you're lucky to have found a panelbeater that cares
