Ha yes I saw that but I can spend $500 on something better I think.
I sold 1 awhile ago but doesn't matter at the moment.

Just hoping to get it moving soon

Spending more time in the garage not on the computer is the key to success. Weather is better now days too.
Waiting on dash top and roof lining/carpet

Shameless plug, looking for some stuff to finish my car.

1. Sedan, rubber for the rear parcel shelf cardboard. I have a coupe one but it is short
2. Rubber boot mat
3. 10a sill trims (exterior)
4. Plastic piece for the rear view mirror (the 3 prong piece that always beaks)
5. 12a fan shroud

Ironically, I'm pretty sure 101.7 uses MMM's play list from twenty years ago, hell, they've even got most of the MMM DJ's from back then as well :lol:

Thanks for the comments. I thought this was a good web site with friendly people who wouldn’t judge me.
I took 5 photos of the radio with different stations because I didn’t know how to represent myself. I guess I chose the wrong one. Sorry

Anyway dash should be back before the long weekend

You need to get that pipe and jacket ready, I'll retune the wireless later

Waiting on some parts was crap. My dash turn up today, it went missing for 2 weeks with the courier (Please!!!!! what a joke) But I got it thankfully.

Got some new seat belts

Ding fix and all doors back together with new glass

I had the horn button and other dash pads painted to match the dash top. Now that’s a horn pad

Credit to you mate.
Can't wait to see this one fully assembled. Then again, I'm sure you can't either... :wink:

Dash was done at Dash Dr (Melbourne) it’s good but the courier they use delivered it to the wrong address. Luck it was found 2 weeks later. So just think if you were missing a new dash top, pieces and an Rx3 horn button how stressed you would be. Especially when it not anyone’s problem when you are chasing it up and even try to hit you up for more postage(courier company)

Had these re-chromed

Dash top is in now and all the dash is screwed together. Console to go in after gearbox maybe next weekend.

Still try to find a rear parcel tray rubber

Engine up date, crank assembly and rotors been balanced.

And how do they fit?

Hi,
Replaced all of them. I used the Muscle Car/Phil's ones they seem to be OK fitted fine but need to drive with them to really tell. Used Gypsy's inners and outers. Use Torana bailey channel.

Ok. Trying to back on track but waiting on other people. Starting to pee me off. I'm going to blame the Gypsy curse, get your car nearly complete and then just do nothing :wink:
No I have just finished doing the brakes, new lines throughout what a pain but it bleed fine with my 10 year pumping the brakes. Loving the firewall flex from a 10 ten year boy, fuel pump circulating, every thing is working. Just need the roof lining in, front and rear glass, motor and box, exhaust and rego

Sound easy if I had the time through the week
