    Still there and you still need to look out for the snakes!

    An orchard is where fruit is grown, not sure what sheep have to do with it?

    An undisclosed amount. But a fair price.
     
  9. Well if that doesn't beat all, you find a roadster like that and now you're on your way to a finished car. Great story and good luck with the build

    Hey drylakespeedshop, in post #122 at the top of the pile, is a radiator surround like one I have. By chance do you know what it is for? I have found some similar but never have seen one exactly the same. 20's Star looked similar but this one flairs out at the bottom on both sides. Nice parts haul you have!! Thanks!

    Well bendigo swap meet was fun! Needed two original caps and got 16 for the price i would have paid for two. He said $2 each and i said I'll take the lot for $30. Also snagged an "A" windshield frame, headlight bar and 2 x 35 wires. Good day out! 1478939854548.jpg

    Looks like you've got two 32 hubcaps in there. Nice catch!

    [​IMG]selling plenty to fund the 32. Frustratingly still waiting on motor mounts and diff but scored my blc lights, front spring, windshield frame and an original navaro triple carb manifold with carbs. Get my shell and insert soon as the one i have is an original but has a 4" section and i don't want to chanel the 32. Plan to pick up my front spring, 32 closed cab cowel to swap and blc lights next week!

    Well decided to work on a side project until i have my parts for the 32. Some may hate it... but it's being built from what i have lying around and available. Same basic running gear as the 32, flatty, early ford trans, banjo, all the good stuff! as traditional as it can be from pre ww2 panels sacrificed and saved. Bit of fun, as it is Australia day today and my wife let me have a fun day in the shed! Kid free! [​IMG] advertised it as a bunch of panels to sell, feeding the 32 build... no real bites, just people wanting the door... [​IMG]rear window frame is built from door window frames modified to look close...[​IMG][​IMG]and we got a koala in our front tree on Australia day![​IMG]

    Quarter windows are terraplane rear windows, doors are Vauxhall believe it or not, and rear window is 33-34 dodge sedan outer door frames sectioned and chopped. As soon as my 32 parts arrive it will probably hang back up on the wall but for now it has given me some shed therapy ! [​IMG]upper window is also 33-34 dodge thanks to greg the scrappy saving old steel! i got alot of panels for a box of beer, need more blokes like greg!

  28. Kid free holiday to yourself? I would be watching for the strings attached to that one. You might even have to wash the dishes, or do laundry. ( kidding. I've got little kids too. Free time to myself is more valuable than sex or gold)

    I dig this thread a lot. How far are you taking this; super polished with a crazy high end paint job or "au natural". Didn't see your previous builds. You sure are good at parts hunting.

    ^Kind of funny on the coupe, plan goes as far as when the 32 parts arrive. I like the overall look of the firestone door and would like to ultimately use it as an A-B advertisement with a just rolled out of storage look. Just fun really! Thanks for the positive feedback!

  30. No offence, but I think the koala is the coolest part of your post! That must be real neat. All we have is squirrels and racoons. :rolleyes:
