Spotto at 0.42

Took Cathy to the Pics last night to see Ladies in Black
The movie is set in Sydney at Xmas in 1959
I was happy to see a nice FC in the opening scene
I went home bruised as Cathy would hit me every time I shouted SPOTTO whenever an FC or FE appeared  Grin

I got it back together and it works  Grin
(after pulling it apart again to put the dust boot rubbery bit back on )
Not exactly aligned properly but it's good enough for me
(I am NOT pulling that chrome bit off again... it takes me forever to line up two screws to put it back on)
 ( I have little patience  Roll Eyes)

I thought I might be able to access the light from under the front guard and simply just unplug the globe
but the bowl shaped thing was in the way

so
I followed instructions on page 300 of workshop manual

but it doesn't look like the one in the manual  (NOTHING in my wagon looks like anything in the manual  Huh Roll Eyes Shocked Cry)
mine has a lot fewer bits than the one in the manual

the headlight also has two holes in it ( a smaller one below the pluggy in thingy bit)

I have one old slotted screw & 2 new allenkey screws holding the light onto the body.  I think these should be adjusting screws but they screw tight to the bodywork (no springs). if i don't screw them all the way in the chrome surround doesn't sit on properly

knowing the wagon has modifications that has mechanics scratching thier heads...
How hard could it be to change a light bulb ? i thought to myself
pulled out the headlight ( thats a story of it's own!) and thought i just unplug the wires, unclip the bulb, pull it out then do reverse to fix it.

This white bit does NOT want to budge

Do i just need to be more forcefull or gently persistent  ?

or am i pulling apart the wrong bit ! ! ! ?

Driving home from another looooong day in a 12 day week at work  Cry  Cry  Cry

The rain has stopped and it's a cool evening, windows wound down, arm hanging out, stereo has Jerry Lee Lewis cranked up to 110 decibels (to blow away the cobwebs in my head)
Cruise up to the red light and pull up behind a shiny, big black, muscley, brand new mustang
Family pulls up alongside in a Korean thing. Can see Dad gesturing to the kids in the back seat
Then the windows wind down and the kids all jostle for position on the back seat
so they can give the Cooool FC Wagon the thumbs up  Grin Grin Grin
a quick wave back to the kids and we all drive off with smiles on our faces

I love having a daily driver  Grin Grin Grin

Why don't you just turn up the volume on the quadraphonic stereo system until the noise goes away John ?
(then call the RAC tow truck when it breaks down.... that's what I would do  Shocked Roll Eyes Huh)


You do have a quadraphonic stereo system don't you  Grin ?

I think I might be picking up the wagon on the way over to Wangaratta at this rate   Roll Eyes

We dropped it at CEVA in Sydney on the 5th April
ETA in Perth  20th April

(Anthony dropped his sedan off on the 3rd and picked it up on Friday, just in time for the Curtin Car Show)

The wagon hasn't even left the Eastern states yet  Shocked
looks like it spent 11 relaxing days at the Sydney depot

15  Technical Board / Modification Help / Re: FC Wagon Fitment Rear AirBags on: April 12, 2018, 06:07:07 PM
Not knowing anything about cars and stress points etc

I got the tow bar place to fit a heavy duty tow bar on the back of the wagon
then fitted heavy duty Monroe shockies
then hitched up the (heavy) Baravan caravan and used load levelling (anti sway ??) bars

not had any problems (yet) sits level, tows OK
been there for a few (10+)years now

but I wouldn't trust my judgement Tim
at the time nobody seemed to know what the wagon could tow.
I assume from looking at some of the old photos that there were no regulations in 1958
usual response was " you'll know it's too heavy when the back comes off the wagon "   Shocked

It's hard to keep up with the diary over days 6,7,8 & 9 isn't it.
Driving, talking, eating, drinking, partying and sleeping seem to get in the way  Grin

DAY 9 (??) Wednesday

Up bright and early to watch a sunrise over the ocean. Another beautiful morning, the thermometer at the surfclub shows 20°

.
( on panoramic + filter on my little camera )

LOVELY beach



SURFS UP 😃

Wish i had brought the surfboard. I would of paddled out and hung ten on a couple of the barrels
(stop laughing Lorene 😉)

went way off track...
& went walking on the moon...


it's  a bloody long line on my map !

then we hit the road heading  north to Woollygong



We stopped here for a coffee break


not sure exactly (?). we got lost and ended up in a National Park. Somehow found a town & a coffee shop ☺

then back on the road 😊😊😊😊😊



love driving through places we've  never been before. with the long straight open spaces & tight winding roads, the open paddocks changing to thick bush

Stopped somewhere else
buggered if i know where
these MIGHT be photos from there... or somewhere else




SELFIES 😀  (this is one of those "must do" photos)

got to Woollygong with no problems...
except...
could smell petrol all day 😦

overfilled at last stop so after unloading EVERYTHING i could check the rearend for any signs of leaks

it's  all good  😃





😊😀😃😄😆☺

Cathy is watching the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony to see if  any classic old Holdens appear


😎😎😎 & Cathy
