Stoked to hear you are going to keep the Safari and put it back together! If you need help with anything don't hesitate to ask, I would be happy to make the trip down to Hamilton to lend a hand.

You made the right choice. It makes me happy. (In my pants)

I'll get my book from Hogan and bring it up to gnats. I firmly believe you need more turbo slant 6 in your life.

Hey I had problems with the rear brakes on my AP5 a couple of years back. After pulling nearly every part of the brake system apart I found that the rear brake hose was the problem so this could indeed be the issue with yours. When I removed the hose from the car I couldn't even blow air through it. My rear brakes were sticking on and would release if you let the car sit for a while.

Pretty excited about this tbh 

 

Need to find a carb that's not fucked in my pile and take it for a hoon.

Been thinking about a Valiant convoy to nationals. Pretty sure an AP5 Safari would be the ideal flagship for such an adventure.

Then if we could lure a certain white big block ap5 out too there would be a trio of pure ap5 lushness.
