Hey Deano,the interior red was eye matched to the original Fall Red which seems to be very close and is Acrylic with no clear.I expect you are trying to come up with this kind of combination.....

I bought this one a couple years ago just because it was a black FC with red interior.Some of you may be interested to know that progress has also commenced on our block and the new shed is well underway.

Not huge by any standard but 25x50x10' should keep me out of trouble for a while and gives me a couple more bays for any "future projects" (hope the wife never reads this...hehehehe).We are also about to move out of this "swamp" in a couple of weeks and into a property only a very short distance (150m or so)from our block which will slow down progress on the FC but ultimately will be for the better.More soon.Jamie.

Nice shed Jamie.......I'll swap you for the tarp the Taxi is under Grin.

It will be good when you have everything sorted with the new house. Like you said, it may put you behind but in the long term it will be for the best.

Cheers,
          Dean.

Hi all,moving sucks............Only good thing is at least it SHOULD be the second to last time for a long while!!!It has obviously slowed down any progress on the FC but has been good progress on it's future home so for now,just a couple of boring shed photos.Had some very heavy rain here shortly after we moved in and was such a relief to not have to get up at 2 in the morning to sand bag the shed!!!I have it on good authority that progress pics will be forthcoming shortly as I know a guy who is totally awesome at auto trimming and he reckons he has something for me......stay tuned....


FC on arrival at the new house...might have to nickname it "Patch"....Plastic windsceen even stood up to 90km/h+ wind


More soon.

.....and by the way Deano,Pedro and anyone else who has had to to move a project,I know exactly how you feel.It is extremely frustrating trying to find things again after moving and motivation is low as you said Deano.I am particularly stressed at the moment as I am spending a lot of time at the block as well getting storm water and the likes done.The freezing weather is not helping either.I just need to get into some routine again as I am really not that far from finished.Thanks for the replies though guys,it does keep me somewhat enthused.....

Nice Shed Jamie. Looks great.  Cool
Your build has certainly been an inspiration to me and your pictures have helped a great deal, and given me motivation to keep going.
Made me get off my butt today and actually accomplish something.

I hear your pain mate, moved the project over 3000km's and 12 months off it... where to start sometimes is hard to come by.

Thanks guys,I just keep trying to concentrate on the big picture.....that is when everything else is finished (sort of) then I can really enjoy the new shed and finish off these projects at my own pace.

Hey Pete,my original seats had the embosing being a late 59 car and I probably wouldn't have had the seats redone unless I could get the embossing done again.I am not sure whether Glenn did this himself or outsourced it (he probably did tell me) but it looks absolutley original and I know that he spent many dead hours chasing this up to get this just right.Cheers,Jamie.
