  9. Looking good kjell. That body sounds interesting
  10. ill bring it home in about 3 weeks :) hehe
  11. Brakes!

    I know that most of the guys in here will hate me for running mecanicals, but its cheep, and works.. so that will go until i can aford 40 ford brakes :)


    had to use my book ''how to restore the model a ford'' from 1961 to look after...


    And now the handbrake works (needs to be a litle tighter) and the backbrakes works GREAT! :D

    Nice start there!

    Just curious on the registration, will the state accept the the new body? Or are you not going to tell anyone..?

    (For people outside of Norway: The state is normally quite strict on the identity of modified cars here in Norway, and that the body should be the same as or similar to the one the car came with)


  13. This is the reasond it will get new doors.. and the trunk/bed, hoping to register as an RPU.. :) but im not telling them its modified.. they will have to find it out themself..
