  1. Bloody good work Roger!!! Very impressed that this is your first time doing sheet metal work! Good on ya, keep it up
  2. Shit yeah! Even another Wag Nats would be rad!
  3. Ah nice! Yeah that's right, and they aren't getting any cheaper.
  4. Bloody good stuff, might try and get some rego for a bobber aswel, break one less law haha Keep up the good work.
  5. I did hear that he's abit of a wheeler dealer, but i'm happy with the deal I got, I also sold the fenders for 650 bucks to a local guy that has a carpentry shop and he said he'd help me out with making a couple of wood parts that he needed for his aswel, and would just run off two of them. So that's cool. Always a great time hangin out with you guys mate. And yeah was bloody stoked to find that chassis and blew my mind it was only 20 odd minutes away. Hopefully make a start on the body as soon as I find out these body mount dimms or whether I can just sit in straight on th
  6. Not sure on the motor, I know his son that was there helping us out had a coupe with a big block hemi init he had just sold from memory, by yeah really cool build especially when he built it no one in NZ was building hotrod like that.
  7. That would be amazing, the guy i brought the body off, Hotrod Harry, he took his car over to the states after he built it. He said the slogan "street legal" accross the backend was abit lost on the yanks
  8. Once I had figured out the roof panels, I realized I was going to need the body sitting square on a chassis before I welded it in. One random drunken night search on TradeMe, and i found, local, a 1930 chassis for 300 bucks! Its in bloody good condition with very little surface rust, the only thing was the front cross member had been removed, plus a few other brackets. He offered choice of ether a late model cross member or the original, I just chose the original. So with that at home, I once again rearranged the garage, which was made a litt
  9. With the help of a few mates, we got the body off the trailer and sitting in the garage. I rearranged the garage to make it alot more useable Went through the replacement steel roof pieces and tried to figure out the puzzle.
  10. So with a deal done, we booked tickets for the ferry and locked in a roadtrip My wife (BabyK), father in law (BigG) and Dog (Rufus) were all keen to come down aswel. We could only get tickets for the late night Friday ferry docking Picton at around midnight. I drove for as long as my eyeballs would allow me, found a Doc site I had spyed on Google maps just north of Kaikoura and set up camp in the pitch black freezing cold night. We woke first thing in the morning, just as it started to rain, quickly packed up the tent and made our way to the Morresey's place. Chris kn
  11. This has been my dream car for as long as I care to remember. However now that we have a house I figured I'd never be able to afford one. So when an ad came up on TradeMe awhile back for a Tudor body at a reasonable price, I thought "fuck it, its now or never". The listing was in Christchurch but I managed to rangle a better deal to help suck up the extra cost of going down on the ferry to pick it up. Now the words "Model A Body" are abit loose once you start really looking at it. its no Sema ready body. It did come with a brand new steel kit for
  12. Been awhile since I've put more than a "like" up on oldschool.co.nz, mainly because its been awhile since I've had an "oldschool" car. So here's an Intro into the project for those that might not know me directly or follow me on Instagram....... A few things happened since the last project car, I got a few more motorbikes, had a few daily duty vehicles come and go, got married, got a dog, got a trailer..... and got a house. Which has been a real time and money drain hole. However it did come with a sweet garage. A pretty descent depth two car garage, WITH a work
  13. Shit yeah! Stoked for you man! All up and running?
