If anybody knows of a good panel beater in Christchurch that does not want my arm or make the bank own more of my house please enlighten me.

Was a lot of paint
This is a 327 I brought for the monaro. It was in an old nuffield tractor that use to do tractor pulls at the AMP show.

We were both surprised at the condition of the left hand side after he removed about a bucket full of bog, (no rust).
It uncovered some more badly repaired panels but I just cannot understand why they had put so much bog in it.
Some previous owner must have had shares in a bog factory.
Anyway the old car already looks better with more natural lines back in it with all that bog removed, plus it must be a bit lighter.

Right hand side is being worked on now, found some more work that is needed to done.
Never is just straight forward with these old cars,
You can see the patch i put in in 1998.

It will be powered by a nicely warmed over 350 chev and a manual saginaw gearbox
This car has some sweet lines going on.

A lot of history with this car. It's a factory 307 manual that was converted to a drag car in the 1980's.
It use to have a tilt front with the engine recessed back into the cabin. It still has the rhs beams running thought the floor of the body to keep it from twisting. It sure is stiff as you can jack it from one corner and the opposite side will come up at he same height and the doors will shut fine.

He ended up replacing the rear beaver panel as the old rear end had a nasty previous repair plus the shape was all wrong.

The monaro is all painted now and looking great.
Still have a lot of work ahead putting it back together. At this stage I seem to be pulling it apart more than putting it together.
Overhauling the brakes at the mo. BNT are my friends their. New master cylinder and caliper rebuild kit on the way.
