That polishing would take 10 times at least the welding time ,do you use a buffing bar like Josco on the fabric buffing wheel ?

awesome ,just awesome ,class all the way ,it looked like electro polished before welding and after ,how did you do that ?

Hey Kevin ..keep the dream alive ,it is amazing how the cars attract people , one trip to Bathurst a guy pulled up with a really old but complete thresher on a trailer in the  parking bays they have in centre of road ,easy stop ,park ,then just drive on ,only few old codgers took a bit of a look , then a pink Cadillac parked in space next to it ,he gets around a bit ,I think he does weddings ,but in no time a crowd gathered ,no one saying " we had one of these " ,No one saying " I got my license in one of these ", just a kind of inquiring admiration ,I don't know Kev ,often think about this ,we do this and have these cars because of what ? ..family history ,nostalgia ,because you can and its what you know ,I have a mate who restores old lawn mowers ,esp reel type ,it doesn't interest me a bit ,i don't really like mowing grass to then look at it with admiration and say that's a lawn ,but I love to drive ,listen to the exhaust note etc ,  ,that's probably why ..keep well mate Vern .

Clay ..yes I thought the same when I took the images ,looks bit 'swampy " as you say, i guess he will be looking at that , its had a wash ,he has done the brakes ,you can see the brake master cylinder has been replaced ,and he said new shoes ,new water pump ,you can just see that in image ,and he has cleaned underbody and spray sealed it ,haven't seen that or know exacltly how he did that .he said he wants to give it a really good tidy up and polish and drive as is ,I did start it and its quite sweet ,he's had the gear box out also ,second gear problem ,i think it was , so there wont be a full resto story to follow ,but ill post some images when on road..cheers Vern ,

Bugger ..faulter has come back ,even bit worse ,time to change the carby plunger as first solution ,as a soften up and a easing out of the brass spreader under the cup has worked for a while,it is still a 60 year old leather component ...Vern ..

Harv ..One day i'll tell you about the Toyota Hilux I bought , it was bought new ,never registered, and went to work on a large cotton/ cereal wheat property at Narrabri as a on property work vehicle , I bought it in a clearing sale ,that I was actually working at ,as a auctioneers penciller , it came up as a lot in the line up ,and no bids ,so I stuck my finger up ,and it was knocked down to me ,so here I am in Narrabri ,with two vehicles to get back to Sydney ,my daily drive and a $4,000 , 3 year old never registered Hilux diesel 4 door ute ..no back seat ,just a 44gal drum of diesel lying on its side set up as extra fuel tank ,and about 6'' of black soil on the entire floor , on removing the soil at Redline Machinery next day ,it contained ,spanners ,pliers, bullets , bullet cases,coins ,beer bottle tops ,bolts ,picker spindles, dog food tins ,so off to RTA for rego !!!!!!let the fun begin ,ill tell you some other time about that experience ..it goes a bit like this , when filling out the rego paperwork I asked the nearest bloke behind the counter the post code there, he said he didn't know , then the boss ,sent out a very attractive young lady in high heels ,10 o'clock in morning with a torch to check numbers .. stay well Vern ..

14  General / General Board / Re: shed find last rego 1985 on: November 14, 2020, 07:26:02 AM
Harv ..he tells me he has had it on the hoist ,to firstly do brakes , find a noise in gear box ,he also said they are cleaning the underside ,with a view to proofing it ,and as yet haven't found any rust ,his wife remarked the hood lining is still like new ,she showed me the last rego paper from 1985 ,when I saw the engine number on the paper ,I remarked ,its had an engine change somewhere in its life ,because there is no letter " L " in front of the numbers , well he lit up ,big time , I know this B B F F car ,it all original ..well lets go have a look ...cleaned off the engine number pad , sure enough there is the letter " L " ..smack in front of the same numbers on the paper ..a typo ...could you just imagine RTA years ago ,or was it still DMR ? my recollections they were generally not very friendly ,I could imagine a officer asking for "engine number" ,so you give him the numbers only ,he didn't ask for any letters ..every car has a story ..Vern ..
