When I got her Vinned and registered for the road it appears she is a year old than some of the old paperwork I had. Does not matter as she is as good as it gets for 50's vehicle

Yep she came with them (Wibroc) one was stuffed so I found a matching one and bob's your Aunty,but the view is best from the inside rear vision mirror. The fender setting seems to take more view of the bodywork than what you need to see. But in saying that they look great..

Yeah I know of them,I was searching for them a while ago.Actually those one's seem to have a thinner base on them and lean a bit outwards (judging by your pic),to the one's I looked at,so maybe they may fit,otherwise I wont be able to open and close the bonnet.mmm,I'll keep an eye out for some!.. Yeah I like those style one's,very cool,thanks for those pics!...

Al when you said the fender mirrors you looked at would foul the bonnet and I mentioned inspecting the bodywork every time I have a butchers hook, it dawned on me that I can loosen of the bolt that holds the upright arm on the mirror and cant it over a few more degrees to see if I get a better view
Will give that a try and take a picture to show the end result. Cheers

Yeah that's what I looked at,they looked adjustable which would be good for my car.There's none on Ebay at atm,I'll keep watching.What's those plates on your wagon now,are they NZ plates?
My mates plates on his FC are BLU58E,they're the newer style ones,might be able to see them in this pic!...

Al These plates are not NZ plates they are produced by Unreal Plates Team
PO Box 211, Drayton North Qld 4350 Australia
Email: info@unrealplates.com
Tel: 1300 445 747 & I had one made up to reflect the old FE wagon I had in the late 60's in Aussy.
Deja vu or should that be Deja Blu ? They are dummy plates for display purposes only. Just try to see if the other mates of the era now sporting grey beards and beer bellies have any idea what I am about....

Loosened off the mirror and dropped it as far as it would go and that gives a better view Just need to do the same on the. Passenger side and we will be right.

Few more pictures from today's short shake down run,am doing a few short runs just to see what shakes loose, rear shackles sound a bit noisy so there's another job. blinkers went awol and all it turned out to be a loose wire to the blinker unit !
