Missing first photos :( haha, looks like a good project though.

Weve got one thats one owner been in the family its whole life. In the shed now as old man got sick of repairing the suspension.

Quite a cool old car though.

Auto or manual?

Yeah cars like that are cool, this one had the service booklet in the glove box. Looks like it was a rental for a few months then owned by an old lady for 25 odd years in blenheim before changing owners down here for a few years.

Manual, I've only seen one auto and that was a Wolseley 1100

Will try fix photos later

Also the best way for stereo I've found is to put some 6x9's in the boxes you can get from Repco etc and put them under the front seats facing forwards - they fit perfectly and the sound bounces off the firewall giving you surprisingly good staging.

Chuck the amp under the rear seat or in the boot - I had the amp attached to the side of a sub box and it was in the boot.

host the photos somewhere else, that site seems to be shit

Yeah I'll chuck them on Flickr tomorrow and change the links. Cheers for letting me know.

Sweet, good ideas. I might start putting it all in soon. Just below the doors on each side is a channel with a hole on each end, looks like a perfect place to run some power and speaker cables :D

I've had a bike frame powder coated before, can't remember who but it turned out really good.

Hopefully by February ill have a colour picked and get it done. $200 isn't bad for something that really sets a car off
