nothing wrong with XXXX Mark...

(if you need to put out a fire  Wink)

Was a very pleasant arvo (except for the weather... "Queensland; raining one day - pissing down the next..."  Roll Eyes)

Looking forward to next year; hopefully with more of us and more cars.

Cheers, jack

Check Pedro's Coolie Rocks post   Smiley
46  General / General Board / Re: Coolie Rocks on: June 03, 2013, 06:36:04 PM

Suggestion for suitable meeting spot - Coolangatta Bowls and Recreation Club, south end of Warner St, opposite Goodwin Park which is usually where lots of cars are on display...

The Bowls Club would, I assume, do tea and scones...      (and has a bar  Grin)

Pedro and Craig - we could meet there Sat arvo; ring me re a suitable time.

Dean - ditto but on Sunday? Give me a ring.

For Pedro and Craig - I'll be the old fart with a walking stick, hearing aid, shaky hands, faded flannel shirt (or FC T-shirt if it's warm) and a blue baseball cap with a bloody crayfish on it...   (and NO - you cant eat the cray; it's not real  Roll Eyes)

Hope this is suitable; either let me know tonight or ring me later on - we're out of here at sparrows tomorrow morning and none of us gerries travel with a bloody computer or fancy clever phones...

cheers, jack

Am i talking to the right Jack here,  Huh Huh cups of tea, scones  Huh Huh, what happened to the beer, rum and pies  Wink Grin Grin


Oh, all right then, Pedro....  if you insistjust this once I'll reluctantly forego the tea and scones and force a beer down...

mind you, it's only to be sociable though...  Grin Grin Grin

Is that you Jack  on the bubble machine  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin....FC427.....

Looks nothing like me, Mark....  (my headband is a different colour  Wink)

Hey Craig,

 I did read your text, and I even got one of the boys to put your mobile nbr in my phone! Thought I'd pm you back as I'm not up with that texting business - too hi-teck for me...  Roll Eyes

Hopefully we can arrange an FE/FC meeting next weekend  Smiley

I'll supply the cups of tea, Dean might bring a sponge cake, you could bring the cream (FC), and I'm sure Pedro will supply the pumpkin scones...  Wink

see ya's soon!

cheers, jack

only problem is i don't have a mobile,

PM sent, Pedro  Smiley

I've only recently and very reluctantly acquired a mobile... It usually lives in the shed somewhere. On the odd occasion that I need it, I get one of my sons to ring it so I can find it...

I don't know my number; I have to ask the Leader of the Opposition what it is if anyone asks...  Roll Eyes she then looks it up on her phone...

My sons have these fancy new phones - "smart" apparently; mine's just a stupid phone; it only does two things that I know of - you can make AND receive phonecalls

Hope to see you in sunny (??) QLD

cheers, jack
51  General / General Board / Re: Rare spares chromework on: June 01, 2013, 08:49:40 AM

Are you heading to Cooly Rocks on next weekend?



Pedro and Craig - if you are going, pm me a mobile nbr. We'll be there Wed (5th?) till Monday 10th... be great to catch up  Smiley

cheers, jack

52  General / General Board / Re: Old Chey Dash on: May 28, 2013, 08:52:12 AM

Recently saw a RHD (Aussie-delivered?) '53 Chev (according to rego sticker) with an almost identical dash. The speedo looked same as FE/FC...
53  Galleries / Members' Completed FE-FC Projects / Re: FCRB30 Wagon on: May 23, 2013, 10:23:04 AM

I use this stuff on chrome and stainless trim - it's good...
54  General / General Board / Re: T shirt on: May 23, 2013, 09:34:46 AM

hahaha, Alex and Dean...  Cheesy

yeah, I've been working out...   

(working outside extending my shed for the FOURTH time...  Roll Eyes. The relative importance of the shed is amply illustrated by the fact that it is now much bigger than the house - but it's true that the house is only a tiny 160+ year old stone "dolls cottage"...)

unfortunately that pic is of some fit young (probably only 50 or so..) bloke; not me...

cheers, jack
55  General / General Board / T shirt on: May 22, 2013, 09:30:50 AM

Saw these T shirts on the dreaded evilbay (don't know how to post a link, but look up Aussie Classic T shirts)

I emailed the bloke (Keith) asking if it was possible to 'customise' the print a little...  within the hour, he replied 'yes'.

Just to try him out, I asked for the bonnet bird, bonnet letters, spears on front door/guard and rear guard badges removed, delete mag wheels and replace with steelies, baby moons, chrome trims and whitebands, add my rego number, thinking this would all be a bit much for him...
(I attached a pic of my car).

Later that day he emailed me a pic of the 'customised' artwork.

Less than a week later, it arrived. Good quality shirt, excellent artwork and printing. Normal price for stock printed shirt is $39 incl. postage; my 'custom' one was $50 delivered. He is happy to do different colours to suit your car.

Sedan, ute, wagon and van available for FC, but it appears he doesn't rate FE's as 'classic'...   Sad

Well worth looking at if you're after a suitable present for your wife... (just make sure you order your size  Wink)

I wouldn't normally give something like this a plug, but he's very easy to deal with and the product is very good.

If you're not ebay capable/friendly (like me  Roll Eyes), you can contact him by email kjrusticprints@@optusnet.com.au

cheers, jack
56  Galleries / Members' FEs and FCs / Re: NosFEratu on: May 18, 2013, 01:06:19 PM

yep; the poor old thing.....     must be feeling gutted...  Cry
57  Galleries / Project Cars - FEs and FCs Under Construction / Re: Petes FC rebuild again on: May 16, 2013, 03:42:48 PM
I want people to look at the detail and they spot something different everytime they see it...


I think you can very safely say you've achieved that (and much more!) already...  Smiley Cool

The phrase "pushing the envelope" comes to mind, but you've completely shredded the bloody envelope some time back...

It's going be extremely interesting to watch this build thru to the finish; the surprises just keep on coming!
58  Galleries / Members' Completed FE-FC Projects / Re: FCRB30 Wagon on: May 14, 2013, 10:33:48 AM

Yep, Pedro; that should keep you out of trouble  Wink Smiley

but I was only referring to an all-black dash, and even then it would depend on the rest of the interior paint and seat/doortrim/carpet colours...

Red dash with black dashtop sounds though  Cool

And you're still not telling us what your thoughts are for the rest of the interior - I'm thinking that this might have a big impact on the dash colour selection...

cheers, jack

ps   if there's any GREY inside at all, Stinky will shoot you; and if his aim is poor, I'll finish the job!  Wink Grin
59  Galleries / Members' Completed FE-FC Projects / Re: FCRB30 Wagon on: May 13, 2013, 08:20:07 PM
Pedro, maybe it depends on what colour(s) you've got planned for above the door trims?

And the rest of the interior?

I've got shiny mid/dark blue on the top of my dash - the reflections are only a minor annoyance on the odd occasion. Go shiny I reckon...

And no doubt you've considered all shiny black? (if not, you better have a good reason why not - I can think of someone else who may be keen on that option  Wink)

cheers, jack

i don't mind the look of them myself, a bit old school, some chrome dress rims and centres should fancy them up a bit,    Pedro

me too, Pedro... I had 6 and 8" on my HK ute; the rims and stock plastic centre caps painted with 'aluminium' paint, chrome bullet nuts, wheel centres in satin black - cheap and looked real cool (to me anyhow  Roll Eyes)...

Spun ally bullet centres (instead of the stock centre caps) and chrome bullet nuts might suit the wagon?

or go completely left of centre and paint the rims/centres in matching red and black??

whichever way you go, it's gunna look the goods  Cool Cool Cool
