Seagull Grey EK 2106

Post by Craig Allardyce » Fri Jun 12, 2015 3:16 pm

Well I'm committed now..........or should be.
Today starts the first day of getting the next and last car back on the road. I am telling myself it will only be mechanicals and a clean up to get it to the 2016 Nats and hopefully road run to WA in 2018. I will try to remind myself of that along the way, but I have a bad memory too :crazy:

Brett I should have posted pics of under the bonnet and the car. Let alone the timing gear being a worry, she oils the plugs up nicely after a couple of minutes and you can barely start it again. I thinks I need a touch more reliability as the good wife wont be happy if it isn't right as she is driving it to Renmark next year. Oh I didn't mention the brakes!

Yep Blacky that's what I after as it will be my daily as well. 2018 will be the Nullarbor run which will add some more "character" no doubt!

Thats a great looking old ute. fancy it being around all those years and still looking that
fresh and straight. It has a nice red badge and even a tonnau cover by the look of it . Just add some wipers and some old Black and White Vic. plates and your away. Hell, even the front wheels are trying to go cruising!
