    This one has The Attitude. If it would be mine, I'd keep at least some of the patina there.
    Have fun Mister!

    Thanks, Ash, nice to hear that.
    I'm running 5.50. x 16 fronts and 7.00 x 16 rears. I have some other pics posted on Ford Barn, although some are dupes. I'll have to see if I have any of the interior and will send. If you look are some previous posts of mine here and on Ford Barn, there's lots of pics.
    Thanks, again.

    Gday, do you have any pics of your exhaust after it ducks under the chassis to out back ?

    Running a flattie but with same pipes as yours.

    Having a look at my build ATM , it has a dagel X member and not a lot of room in there with the under floor booster and pedals on right side (RHD in OZ.).

    ..Or anyone else with ideas how to run pipes under and back from lakester pipes .

    IMG_0016.JPG Hi this is my RPU taken at Newcastle NSW durring the wet 2015 Nationals and my roadstar project. Brian Bauer's A models showed me how cool highboy A's on A frames can be. Does anybody have pictures of his orange roadstar? P4010009.JPG

    I've posted photos of my car on this thread before, but have made a few changes which improved both the ride and the handling greatly. It's amazing what adding a few degrees of caster will do!

    I didn't handle the paint, the owner told me it is Washington Blue. It looks too dark and has a slight purple hue, but that's what he said.

    Oh ok, yeah I think it's to dark to be Washington blue. Thanks
