  1. We need an update @oldnrusty
  2. Parts cleaning up pretty well. Will clear coat the suspension arms and steering links I think. Rest will get a coat of rust converter black
  3. Front and rear wheel options I'm aiming for. Have stripped down the chassis now and nearly finished cleaning up all the front suspension components. The fasteners all cleaned up well with a soak in vinegar and the bench grinder and some sanding/buffing brought up the front hairpins etc. I also picked up a go kart rear axle, steering wheel and rear hubs. Now to fab up a floor and nail down a motor.
  4. Just picked up this body and chassis and aiming to build a Junior Rod/totrod Starting Point: Size comparison to her first hot rod stroller: Thumbs of approval: The fleet: Repping The Strokers shirt over here in Perth while out cruising: She keeps on growing! Wagon still fits for now but won't be long: Will strip down this week and start planning out the build
  5. Making dreams happen bro! Love it and know you will build one sick car. Looking forward to coming over to hit up Beach Hop with you guys one day
  6. My life is spiralling out of control... So, ended up with 4 wagons, three sets of tyres and one set of rims so far. I have cleaned one wagon up and sold it for triple what I paid so that will contribute to the steel purchase. Will likely try and sell another wagon and one of the sets of tyres to contribute to another set of rims and hubs. Catching up with a mate who has a kart tyre bead breaker next weekend and chassis building will start the following weekend if all goes to plan. Still aiming to be ready for the Nostalgia Drags here in Perth this April
  7. Polished up the lips on the magnesium rims for a bit of bling
  8. Picked up the rims now and starting to plan out just how crazy I want to get with the chassis. Pinning over Ali drop beam frontends but we will see. Second wagon pan rocking up soon too just to double my work load She just wants me to hurry up and fix her wagon Plans for the seat
  9. Picked these up today Picking these up Monday And potentially a second wagon, will build up both and sell one to try and cover some of the cost of the builds. Started planning the chassis and seat, hoping to have one completed for the Nostalgia Drags here in Perth this April
  10. Picked up a Radio Flyer wagon as a new project. I still have my daughters hot rod but it has small and narrow wheels so car meets on grass are a no go. Still fits and I finally added the "lake pipes" Scored this on gumtree for a bargain and looking at some secondhand go kart wheel this Friday. Pulled it to bits Plan to copy this style chassis Hopefully end up with something like this
  11. Thought I might pop a thread up about the GB400 I picked up recently as I slowly try to tidy up some of the dodgy bits. Day one at home: Plenty of dodgy bits to choose from. First problem was there was zero rear brake. The seat had a big hole in the rear section and was held on to the bike with a nylon strap. The bar-end mirrors have stupidly long bolts that very nearly hit the tank, the battery was rooted, air filter was black, rear tyre was square, foot peg rubber consisted mainly of blue electrical tape, front guard looked to have been finger painted by a 2 year old and generally
