Looooong overdue. Came up Ok but far from perfect. Many thanks for the tips Al & DDD! I'll start on the interior next week. Thankfully the interior is close to perfect but cleaning the front carpet will be interesting. Any tips DDD on cleaning carpets without pilling and fraying the fibres? My carpets are the modern repros.
Thanks,
Alby

I went to a garage sale in the mid 90's when I moved down to the Central Coast. An old weatherboard beach house had sold and I turned up at the end of the day. They were cleaning out 'granddads shed' and found these. They gave them to me for free. No idea what era the racks are from? My guess is 40's or 50's?? i put up a post with some close ups of them years ago
I also chucked a couple of pics with the boards up for ya mate!

I love your car Alby. Can I say it needs mudflaps on the back. I'm a believer in them for looks. My Monaro sports them as well as my VF Commodore.

are tricky to find. They are definitely on the shortlist.
Still not sure about the whitewalls. My car had them back in the 90's and I may buy a set when I reach the big 5 OHH. Funny, today one of my boys said, :"Why dont you buy those tyres with the white ring around it?" Kids, what would THEY know!

The rear brackets are the hardest bit to find. Rare Spares don't do any part of the mudflaps for them and Kingswood Country is a just a Rare Spares distributor. Earlybitz has front or rears for $150 a pair plus postage, which is a big enough rip off, while Dave Smith has them for an eye watering $395 for a full set.

Edit:Just looked closer at your car and they are similar to the ones you have on the front!...

carpets are funny things, they have a mind of there own believe it or not.
One of the oldest tricks in the books "believe it or not" is, IF a carpet starts to fray or as they say gets get 3 day growth lol, IS the old L cheep O disposable razor and shave it.
YES ITS TRUE, and it works, Ever seen a used car with hairy carpet with frays ?????
Modern carpet are made out of a nylon and synthetic, The days of wool and cotton are long gone.
Hope this sheds some light mate, and love the pics mate, What a classic car,
All it needs is white walls now lol
As i always say,
Stay safe mate
