Cheers Matt, I have just bought a convertible version for my son, he gets his licence in 2 years so I guess the hunt begins again for hardtop parts, lol

I don't really care for convertibles on any car, but that actually looks like it suits the car very well! :tu: 8)

Funny thing is I am doing that with my son soon. He turns 14 this year and has started browsing for his first car/project.

And good looking car.

Is that the chop top that came up for sale on SG a few years back? Looks tidy (that dash pad!! :shock: ) shame it looks a bit gimpy with the roof up.

Bigger shame that a hard top was cut up to make it, but it'd be an even bigger shame to let it go to waste.

Nice one mate, I find it is a great way to get them interested in all things mechanical. My son and I have recently finished a 6 month rebuild of a old school BMX which I found was a great way to get him on the tools.

Thats the one TJ, I bought it from 81GL in S-G, we are making the 600k round trip to collect it this Saturday so I will get some more pics once we have it home. I am very happy with the dash :lol:

So I lost my account info and have re-registered :P
Sadly the convertible was going to cost ridiculous amounts to pass local registration as it was engineered in a different state :( Got some pics before I sold it on, back to the state it came from so hope it gets the love it deserves.

Here it is sharing my front yard with my then completed hardtop

Image
Image

Sporting obligatory JNC stickers :P

Image

So since these pics were taken, I have sold the convertible and recently pulled the hardtop off of the road to replace the 4G54 Astron with a 4G63 Sirius. Should be good fun when finished.

Before;
Image

Now;
Image

Oh, yeah, and I have bought an A53H 1972 Galant hardtop as my next project

Image
Image

AND, lol I replaced the convertible with a A123H 1979 Scorpion hardtop for my son's first car :)

Image
Image

Well that's pretty much me up to date, now I can take a deep breath and have a look around, lol.
