When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

I hear they are also well stocked with wheels. Every time the company Ute is out it is wearing different wheels 😳

Inner door panels done - the rest of the inside bits will be done once the regulators for the rear windows are sorted

I know you've got enough on your plate as it is with this one, but just a thought. The curved rear window sills made me think more of the chebbys.

Wonder if the EK tailights could be made to hinge, and the fuel filler be hidden, like the 55's, 56's or 57's? The 57 is shown below, perhaps the hardest of the lot to mimic.

More progress, roof skin front section kindly supplied and delivered by a certain gentleman from Willunga was offered up today and will be blasted and utilised once the lazy sparky from Kalamunda has ground down the windscreen
