I found some time to paint and fit the wheel cap centres.
Probably not everyones cup of tea but they look better than the faded holden ones.

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?

Pipe bender looks simple. I've got the same flaring tool. Very effective. Done my brake and fuel lines bent using dowel and vice jaws and not entirely happy with some of the tighter bends, particularly the fuel line near the tank which I all but crimped.
