Yes it does look a bit different than last time you saw it in the garage, but you gotta remember that was about 3 years ago....... And never mind the closet Greg, the house is what you need to get out of......
I think the color looks better on the rod than on the new Falcons, but then I am a bit biased on that one........

Does that mean you'll take me for a ride next time I'm in town?

Just make sure there's a camera handy.

Its nearly there.
Auto elec was busy playing robot wars for channel 10 "neighbours" program for a few weeks, so its been delayed a fair bit lately. Ive been down there helping out last week, and its back on track again.
All the body is now assembled, looks like it'll be fired up for the first time in the next week or so.

Looks nice...I reckon you have the stock L300 springs in it going by the height....I think they are a bit too stiff...The engine is set back and the springs aren't working. Have you looked at the HX-Z 6 cylinder springs?. If you chop them at the same height as the L300 springs, you will find they are just perfect..IMHO

LH/LX torana springs if I remember correctly. They do need re-setting I agree, thats just one of the things on my must-do list.

That's great news MrC.
The maiden voyage after years of toil is a moment to savour for ever.
Ah the smell of hot oil and burning paint
Nothing quite like it IMO.

Enjoy
