Hey Craig,

Looks cool! Is the engineer okay with you running bucket seats without headrests?

Cheers,

Josh

If you haven't grown up by 50, you don't have to.

To all

Car is engineered and registered as at 2.00pm today. Grin Grin Grin Cheesy :

What a fantastic feeling.

To all those who are still on their build keep going as this feeling of being able to jump in and take it for a spin whenever you want is fantastic.

I deregistered it back in 2002 and finally back on the road today.

I guess my post now gets moved!!!

Good luck to you all

Regards

Congratulations Craig Cool Cool, you must be on a pretty good high right now, I still reckon we need a green one of those emoticons for jealousy.

Thanks to all who have made such positive comments.

I would also like to thank the many who have indirectly contributed to me reaching this fantasticlmilestone.

Inspiration
Pedro, for giving me a clearer outlook on life

Knowledge
JB - your build however long it has taken, gave me the drive to keep going along with some great ideas
Brett - your many posts on the technical aspects I.e. wiring the wiper switch etc.
Jack - you know, those damn seats  Wink
Ken - your knowledge and never ending source of spare parts
Pete - your skill, expertise, generosity and willingness to take things to a new level with you build
NES - your ability to keep taking pete's insults  Cheesy Cheesy and humouring us all

And finally to all those who contribute to this forum whether it be in humour or technical advice.

I look forward to meeting some of you at some stage in the future, hopefully in Tassie, or somewhere up the east coast. Anybody heading through Toowoomba please PM me

BTW I have had three requests for school formats just today. Not sure whether that is a good thing or not

Cheers Craig D

Craig - you're welcome, mate; it's an honour to have had some (very) small input into such a fantastic build...  Smiley

Well done Craig,car looks fantastic and yes it is an amazing feeling to finally have your car back on the road after such a long time off it.It is quite surreal to drive it for the first time after only seeing it parked in the shed.Have fun with it now and enjoy all the comments you get from others.Cheers,Jamie.
