Re: MI60FB

I've probably missed a post, but why are you selling it so soon after doing all that work? New project in the pipeline?
You've got to at least cruise around in it for a bit!
Looks great, well done.

Re: MI60FB

Just keep an eye out for a good button, chroming a horn bar wouldn't be too pricey i'd imagine. Definitely go with pearlcraft - I've got one on my EK and they're a beautiful centrepiece for the interior - quite the talking point

Re: Time to get real

Thommo, Dave & Mick (not RB Mick, lol) I get where you guys are coming from, but i've got a beaut near rust free EK shell sitting at dads place plus all the parts i need to put it together. Everything is already apart (obviously) so ready to be cleaned, painted, plated etc with minimal screwing ...

Re: Time to get real

Unfortunately its not an option - either she goes now or when the other one is done. I'd love to keep her but there's no point having two EKs which would be almost identical with different motors, and even when all the projects are done i'd have no spare room - not even enough room to build a carpor...

Time to get real

Okay this is scary for me. It's beginning to look as though it is time to sell on the turquoise EK. Keeping her on the road while trying to tackle an EJ and another EK whilst also keeping a recently bought commodore ute is starting to look a bit ambitious. Just need to feel the waters at the moment ...

Re: How low can i go?

Mine is as low as you can go - drives like an old landcruiser - crap. Keeps you on your toes when driving 13" wheels and 185/65 tyres (i think? from memory) Kingpin front end on bumpstops, diff on 2" blocks and the springs look like they're either sagged or reset :lol: Only things that scr...

Re: Cathay Grey & Arctic Beige EK

Yeah i thought it would be snowcrest. He just had arctic white in his mind so i thought maybe it was. I'd say snowcrest white as well. Sorry i didn't explain very well, Dixon is an acquaintance of John's. The car was sold to him on the condition that he gave John first dibs if he resold it, but that...

Cathay Grey & Arctic Beige EK

A mate of mine is looking for his father's old EK. It was bought new from Muirs Holden (forgot to ask him whether it was 61 or 62). His family name is Debrincat A manual car, Grenadier Red and Athens Grey upholstery from what he has told me. Had a sunvisor and was ordered without a radio. He had the...

Casual sunday coffee meet (Hills)

Hi guys, A mate of mine has started a bit of a monthly get together for anyone into cars, just a casual get together, nice and early in case people want to get down the road for another show or anything. The first one in December was a good start with a few rods, restos and muscle cars turning up - ...

Re: fuel gauge problem

Mine does that too. I just don't let it drop below half.
I think it's nice that it's so optimistic
