Been a while since I posted anything on the Wagon, the right knee replacement is coming along really well so should be able to get back on it soon.
I’ve been gathering parts, just need to buy some floor repair panels and get it on the rotis :clap:
More to come as I get to it.

Good news on the knee Neil, and also another build to follow. Now you’ve bumped it up, I’ll have a read back. Cheers mate.

Great stuff Neil, I take my hat off to ya !!!

I don't think I have the energy to do another car, for me that's 5, a FB ute, 2 Studebakers a V8 GQ patrol and the EK, i'm feeling old.

I do have a 66 Mustang though ??? Needs the whole lot done, but so does my house !!!

Damm, not enough time so I'll be reading with interest.

Regards Greg
So many cars so little time!

I do question myself some times Greg :roll: wonder if I'm up to it also it does take a bit out of you.

From the quality of your car build mate I would think the Mustang would turn out pretty awesome so you better get into it before you lose the urge :lol:

Unfortunately mate my wife has sort of claimed the wagon and wants to pick the colours :roll: :roll: so I will have to try to calm that down and sway it a little to my way of thinking :lol: :lol:

Green wit a pink pearl clear coat would look nice. Just a really subtle pink tint, so subtle you can't see it.....

I now have the floor repair pieces and because it was a 5 day weekend for me 😜😜 I got stuck in and got the wagon onto the rotis finally. The rotis was a home made one that I bought off a guy on gumtree who had used it on XC F#@D, I had to do a bit of modification to get it to work on the wagon but at last it is done.
