Putting the H back in the Q.

Back in January 19th I started me trilogy of trials and tribulations getting me ride on the road

I spent a solid week rubbing & scrubbing, some days went into the dawn of the next day, I couldn't leave it alone, but Progress was being made, rust protection, etch primer & top coat - followed by underbody sealer surely must help, just all takes time to prepare and complete. Then one morning I come up the house, I had no obvious jobs left to do (whoohu), she was now ready for the professionals.

The next step was to drop her off at the Paint & Panel, they loaned me a trailer and off she went, we pushed her into the big shed and the Boss said call back in six weeks.

I took the bench seat and hood linings to the upholster, quizzed him on a tonneau cover and fitting, (told No Worries - be 2-3 weeks though) meanwhile a steady flow of parcels arrived on the courier, I have a list but can't let that information fall into the hands of the War Office (might be forced to mediate).

The engine was now well in progress (painted) & bolted on the Auto, extractors & fitted the fuel lines ect to her. Two weeks later me Brother texted - "Hey your Ute looks good"

"So soon", I walked in the big shed an "Whaow", there she is - better than I imagined.

We were still waiting for the rear cover although the bench seat and hood lining was done,including a tornque cover.

A normal tendincies is to plan for one thing and during a simple conversation a better offer, costs slides upwards, like I had plans for a manual but changed to an Auto, it was there but wouldn't go into gear, bugger - the auto had shrapnel in her and moisture was also detected in the pan so out with that, but the recon that arrived also picked up moisture in it, but the seller took it back and reconditioned it. The carb changed to a 350 holley, tinted the glass,

Now I Just got to put it all together
