Progress on addition.

Just giving an update on my addition of garage /workshop/service pit. Pretty happy with it. Still got to get electrical done for fluoros and GPO in pit. Ran out of dosh for now so getting doors done first. Have air in and above pit. Ran lines from back shed so dont have to hear compressor cutting in.

Put some pretty cool shelves and tool racks on walls as well.
Have already replaced clutch on one of the work trucks and removed box from Monaro to get flywheel machined so has already come in handy. Beats the hell out of sliding in and out of under car on creeper. Not getting any younger. Has also alerted me to other issues under car that need to be addressed.

This is the first v8 conversion i have done and is almost ready for rego. Replaced the 202 and banjo with a 308 and lsd salisbury. Kept the column auto and bench seat for cruisin. Ive got a visor for the front but not sure if i want to fit it or not and the standard wheels may get replaced with gts rims. Anyway just thought i would show some pics.

Rain, 202 won't start.

Had a bit of a problem last two times my hq has been out in heavy rain.

Get in the car, car won't turn over at all. No clicking noise, plenty of battery juice just won't engage the engine at all. Last time I thought it was the selector on my column change so replaced that and nothing happened, then the next day it started lol

I got a 202 trimatic, was thinking maybe water was getting in and hitting my electrics as the old girl has a few leaks I need to get at. Fuses are fine. Any ideas what it might be besides electrics getting wet?

natural light

This is a pic of the colour with some natural light, you can see the pearl coming out, I'll try this arvo to get a pic with some sunlight on it to show the flake.
I'm kinda feeling like I'll need to recoat the other panels and clear over uncut paint, given that I think the metallic will look like sh!t if i clear over a cut back finish...
Does anybody know how long I can put off clearing over the finish?????????

For Tonyoldgoat (bonnet clearence)

Here's a photo of my Offenhauser Dual plane, holley with a ram-flo filter,It has about 5mm clearence (we put a ball of Blu-tack on the filter and closed the bonnet), But you should get a idea by looking at the firewall and heater box......And that's another use for blu-tack.
