Hey there havn`t posted for a while have been a bit busy but have finally got some paint on the Delivery left my house on Saturday morning in primer and came home sunday night in colour. It was painted my my nephew in a spray booth that we hired for two days of flat out masking and painting, wow what a busy weekend.
It still needs to be colour sanded. The colour is called Morwell grey which is a 1964 Holden colour. I chose this just for something a bit different to all the popular colours. The interior will be red and the car also has a rear seat fitted. It is also going to have a 396 BBC with a turbo 400 and nine inch diff with 31 spline billet axles and mini tubs.
It also will have Vintage air that I have allready trial fitted and also power steering with.
As most of you can see the car is RHD as I am in Australia.
Check out the photos

The first couple are how it was before loading into my truck to take to the paint shop.


and then a couple of when the body was done



and a couple of the bolt on panels

It was a factory LHD but it has been converted to RHD using a RHD drag link and pitman arm off a factory RHD car. IT also has a power steering box and the dash was cut and shut.

Thanks everyone I have most of the parts to reasemble except for the actual interior trim.
I should be able to get it drivable and get the interior done when the money is available. Thanks Chris
