Update from Vern - 2 July 2020.

Well here she is finished and registered ..( sun visor yet to be ready ) ..2 years 7 months 18 days from purchase to rego. She has done about 80 kms on road so far so good..Firstly a big thank you to all the club members who have given advice ,assistance ,parts and encouragement.
It certainly is a unique feeling ,hard to explain, nostalgia, pride ,having something special ( excuse pun ),satisfaction ,having something not only enthusiasts love and cherish ,but the Australian public at large do also ,everyone knows what a Holden is ..Thanks again see you on the next club run ...Vern .

Looks stunning Vern. Good effort on the build time. We all know how these things cam drag on.

Know what you are saying about the feeling of pride. I'm looking forward to experiencing it again myself.

I used silver Pinstriping off eBay. Applied before the paint & clear coat, no bumps can be felt.
