The loooonnng term EK 2 door project

Post by Blacky »

Hi kiddies, some of you longer term forum members might remember that I started building an EK 2 door about a thousand years ago - well we have killed all the tarantulas and funnel webs , dusted it off and fired up the grinders again ImageImage - and here's a picture Image this is from about 11 years ago when the skins were fitted
Image

Image

Image

And some recent work , headlight eyebrows extended
Image
Image
Sides and fins modified
Image

Image

Stay tuned for more goodness ! Still have a couple of things to do yet .....

Hey Blacky,
It's amazing what you find when you clean out your shed!! Interested to see how this project unfolds. :thumbsup: Yet another iteration of the FB / EK that the General should have offered back in the day. What donk will push this down the road?

Regards
Stephen

Looks like a proper job on the doors and pillar relocation. Good work.

It is currently set up for a V6 , I also am currently building a supercharged fuel injected 202 for the red rattler which I thought I might throw in the hole , but after seeing how nice Nomads and EK Jays Holden V8 installs look I am thinking of going with a 308 now - with the uncertainty of engine swaps in WA at the moment it might be my last chance to build a V8 powered one Image

Either way it will be Holden bits from front to back. Image

Looking good Blacky. I notice another not so subtle mod with the Buick-sequel dip behind the door. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.
Speed and Style........... One day I'll get the speed bit.
