Put in where the spare wheel would go

Should be nicely tucked up and would be easy to build some form of shield for

And carry tyre inflator kit

That's where the last owners put it. There is no room for a wheel now!

And the space where the stock tank was (on each side) will be taken up by mufflers

Oh damn, I have a mint interior light and lense sitting here with your seats...

Too late son. But thanks!

Can you use it?

On the reverse of my black base it says CHROME.

Is this missing something?

I was gonna go aftermarket but then thought.... The only person that will care or notice is me so I may as well get the satisfaction of doing it myself :-)

I also pulled the tailgates out of the tray. The brown rusty one is fucked. The green one had dents and holes from tie downs and iv welded those up+ straightened it as much as possible but its so difficult with no decent access to the insides for a dolly. I have two options that I like. One is bog it up and UAE it as a plug to make a fg skin..or

Buy a Taiwanese copy NEW off Trademe for 150 bucks.

So cheap it's a nobrainer really.

The interior light you have was used by Holden from 1969 to 1988. The ones used in HK HT and some HQ models were chrome painted plastic.

Everything after that was black plastic as far as I'm aware. I think they still used the 'chrome' tooling even after they went to black.

I'll use it in my HG or HQ so no worries.

I need to decide where I want my radiator

I'm onto version two mounts and still indecisive.

I also need to sell this.megashifter so I can justify a few other new bits

Advertise the magashifter in the Petrolhead free newspaper. I believe placing a for sale ad is free.

Perfect target audience.

Good afternoon oldschool :-)

My WB has no side mirrors and WB mirrors are too bloody ugly for me to spend money on. GTS mirrors are DAMN expensive so they are out.

Anyone have any suggestions? XA mirrors are very very nice but again, pretty pricy and really a little too fancy for my heap.

Thanks bro. Yeah that's definitely going to happen.

I really do want to run some decent wattage globes

The cable I have is pretty heavy so should be OK to have relays in cabin...I hope.

I'd be putting the relays in the engine bay to keep the power feed wire as short as possible. There's plenty of hiding spots around the headlights.

Definitely relays in the engine bay.

Then make a masking panel to cover them or just line them up tidily.

Makes future tracing much easier.

Bench seat for sure.

So you can chuck one arm over your Sheila while the other arm rests on the window sill and steers you along.

 

Also, it's much easier.

or VK buckets are practically a bolt in job using factory holes in floor. 

 

the panel gaps on WBs dont get me started! you need those L shaped plates obviously but Undo your rad support and try to get that sitting as far back as you can 

This should help with getting things to lineup 

I gotta 15mm gap between the bonnet and the front panel its yuck!
