looking good jase. have you got much more to go on the motor befor you chuck it in?

and how that new weber going ?

dan

Motors all good to go, have pretty much everything to do it, just gathering a few more funds to paint engine bay and do a few other bits and pieces then its go time!

That Weber turned out to be not suitable, was a DGEV ( electric choke ) converted to manual and was too bulky out the side ( Would hit my rocker cover ), have a new one now that will work perfectly :o

I like the panel vans and always wonder just why they dont fetch the same money as sedans? So much cooler and more usable. Wagons are the same- cheaper. Why ?

Loving the wheels- is it to be dropped further?

I don't reckon the vans fetch less, the good examples are worth good money, its just that most are rust/bog buckets. Most sedans seem to lead a easier life and can be worth more due to condition?

And yeah Id like to get the front down a bit more :D
