he finished my fail....

pic attached

I brought this car up from a scumbag old car dealer in South Australia a couple of years ago. I lost heart with it and it actually drove me out of the car scene.

It sat in my shed until I sold it about 6 months ago and took a massive hit to my pocket. but it was out of my hair.

the guy I sold it too has finished it and he deserves a pat on the back. he has done such a nice job. kudos to you Joel.

Mechanic labour rates

Hey a general question here , what is the average labour rate for a mechanic these days (not a dealership). Some big work needed done on my jackaroo that i'd rather pay some one else to do rather than me working it out as i go along. I have no idea what the going rate is these days on the central coast NSW so not Sydney which i'd expect to be more expensive.
thanks
Al

WB Statesman Side Mouldings

I want to "restore" the faded side mouldings on my WB Caprice. The car is silver and the side mouldings in certain light/angle are looking pale and whitish. See the pic (not the best). Anyway I was just going to clean and respray but I'd like to confirm if someone can that they would have been originally the same colour as the car? Or would they have been different. I had a white one years ago and they were white so it didnt matter.

Question about LC/LJ Torana Body

Just wondering if anyone can help me out. I'm restoring an LC torana and trying to figure out the lines on my rear quarters. I have attached a pic and highlighted the area in question in red. Both sides of the car seem to have a bit of a low (not deep just a bit of a flat spot) Just wondering if that is normal?
