Noticed that you have the coupe recliner hinges on your seats and not the sedan ones, you know they are worth a few bucks compared to the normal ones...

If you are referring to the adjusters on the bone bucket seat, I was just using them as a guide to put the tracks on. I have a re chromed set on them now

That's VERY true Bruno. I've seen Andrew's Mankini!

Fortunately, he wasn't wearing it at time... :-)

p.s. I must add that he WAS wearing shorts, T-shirt and thongs while showing me his mankini...

First - thats a very tidy HQ build up - Ive been watching that one - well done. Secondly including innocent wife pics in the build up will guarantee more hits on your albums for sure - Kims FC sedan build intentionally proved that.
Thirdly - Wives do build cars with their husbands... some of them anyhow...The internet is full of female images - yet the ones of ladies working on cars draws the most attention?

Lastly - I dunno weather to be disturbed or flattered that as soon as a picture of a wife working on a car appears - the conversation quickly turns to my infamous mankini.

Hmmm... Simply owning a mankini has strange and mysterious powers... I have yet to wear it! You have all been warned....
:-)
Qute - you are a sick sick man... or you just now want to do the OH calender project we shelved a few years back. Bruno - just by replying in this thread makes you "Miss February" - its the shortest month so your exposure will be limited....

cheers streetneat...Andrew...

I think this one is more " the husband helping the wife" with her car

That was pretty much the scenario when Kim was building her car - she did much of it herself. We photographed a WW carb set up on her lap as she was sitting down with it when I was wandering about with the camera. That pic we thought pretty innocent at the time -yet had the most views. I didn't know knees could be so intriguing....
To think about less than 10 years ago I reluctantly bought a red HQ SS for a $50 shortfall on a customers bill... and had to beg a guy to take it for $150 later!

Been there.
When I bought my panelvan about 7 years ago, just before I joined up here, so 6 1/2, I had the choice of that, or an SS that had been stripped and taken back to bare metal, only a few small bubbles of rust on the plenum, (was bare metal after all) low miles, numbers matching, Letuce alone, could have had it for $1000, but chose the van instead for 2 grand, as it was rust free, and had a certain nostalgia about it...
Sold the van years later for $2500,,, pfft

In regards to your comments, I wish I did have a husband to help me, but I dont. I get lots of advice and help from males which is great...Its fun working on them and will be real rewarding knowing that my car has been built with love by ME.

Don't know how the sales of this calender would go.....

Could be a good one for the loo I suppose, when your not feeling so good, or have crossed the line with the beverage intake, just look through the calendar - might save the fingers down the throat trick :P

Looking Good Jen.
Its getting closer and closer now, great stuff.
Stan at least with the SS owners in our little group the lady involvement is actually
quite high as there seems to be a fair few husband and wife teams and also just a lady
on her own doing one as well.
On the lady in the picture side of things it sure does get the picture viewed a lot more though.
In my shed the SS picture that has been viewed the most is the one with my wife wearing a mini skirt standing next to my neighbours car .
The pictures have been updated but it still has the most views of the lot.

Anyway back to the main post.
Great job Jen keep up the good work.
Cheers Paul.

Apologies for assuming you had a husband to help! More power to you for doing it yourself. Its strange you had such good success with Eastern - the bad stories outweigh the good - although I had mostly good experiences with him and a few shockers to balance it out.

Cheers streetneat-Andrew.

I hope that those are not scratches I can see on your front guard. I am referring to the 3rd pic with the 2 seats together. I'd hate it if you would have to get it re-sprayed again.
