Thanks for the link.  That's the more common 5 foot version mines the larger 7 foot one but man I love that colour scheme far better than mine

Well today I had my first successful drive.   Have a few little issues to iron out but it's sounds great makes plenty of power.   Hopefully get the bulk of them sorted out tomorrow and finish polishing of the overspray (be careful folks that shit travels)

    Managed to massage the motor to fit under the bonnet touch go well stuff had to go for a while.    No decent video of it I'm positive my family are digitally handicapped

It's really good to see the beast out in the wild instead of locked in the shed

Looks like an awesome beast to me Dan can't wait to see and hear it one day. My first car was a HQ 202 trimatic wagon I got off my dad who brought it new. Probably didn't go as hard as yours mate but a lot of it comes to the driver so I'd probably stil have you.

Hope your camera has plenty of memory if you take a photo at every servo refuel.

If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.
