I've not uploaded any pics because not much has happened for a while, although i'm continuously buying bits i need.

I'm waiting on my mate Ian (bloke in the pics) to come back and finish off my rust removal and had hoped he'd come for christmas but he's put it off until 14th January (BUGGER !!). Once he's been and gorn, i'll be going hard mate.

Your shed's quite interesting and you aint mucking about with your Afreaking Munro, good stuff :)

My Munro will be done by Christmas, Ask Blissy he knows, lol.

I hope he is able to knock it over when he returns mate.

I have been doing the same (buying stuff) when I can.
I have been selling stuff on evil bay to get cash to continue with it.

It's frustrating when you have to get something done before you can move on with it, I know mine doesn't require quite as much work as yours but I had to motivate myself to get stuck into the cleaning/stripping of the engine bay and under dash.
Onday I hope to drop it of to Streetneat for some rust repairs in the boot area(It's not to bad but I would like it fixed)

I was so happy to be putting stuff back in finally.
I also had to re build a wiring harness from a standard kinga loom, I thought that would take forever but only a few Rumbos and 2 afternoons/evenings with a mate helping me.
(A
big thanks to Scummy for the coloured wiring diagram!)

I will upload some more picks soon, I'm about ready to get the engine back in.
Just got to find the cash to buy the last few expensive parts,Clutch,Flywheel,Carbie,Powersteering pump,ECT...
Then I'll have to do the interior and buy some new safety belts to get it LO2ed (blue plate).

Cheers

Ian's a farmer and lives about two hours away so he calls in when the farms quiet and stays here. I feed him and shout a few rums after work each night and pay whatever he quotes. First stint at it he worked for six (or was it seven ?) days from 7.30 am until 5pm but the last day, he went till midnight to complete what he was doing...cost $700 :-))
He called in about a month ago for a visit so i got him to look at what's left and gimme a quote...Reckons he'll be here about 2 or three days to finish her off and it'll cost me $200. Now that's worth waiting for because i guesstimate i'd be paying well over $5000 for anyone else.
Ian's deaf and dumb and a self taught genius sorta bloke and restores old morris [Naughty Pottyword]boxes as a hobby/passion. He's rebuilding a woody traveller ATM.
