    According to the local news it was 3.4 degrees in Ballarat today and felt like MINUS 8!! Coldest day there for 33 years.
     
  2. Get back into your garages and spin those wrenches.....;)
     
  3. First time in 30 years of living here in Ballarat that I had to work in the snow.
    I have to say I'm not a big fan

    When I initially mocked the car up I had trouble with bonnet( hood) alignment, I was using a repop firewall, when I tore it down I had better look, the pressing for the rear hinge retainer was pressed off to one side, needless to say the junk was at the next swap meet, nothing beats original Henry. A couple of repairs to the original firewall, thanks frank, refitted the feet with some faux rivets and almost read for paint.

    Thanks, I walked into the paint shop with one color in mind and came out with the opposite.
    A quick flick through the paint chips and done. It's a blue/purple, Mazda non metallic.
