Picked up an "unfinished project" a few months back. Now the rebuild begins!

G'Day Greg,
          Looks like a pretty straight and undamaged shell, so it should come together nicely. I don't see a dashboard or the shoulder trims for inside the roof, next to your elbows. Fortunately we can make any part for the F4, using , mostly, ex-factory moulds. You can see some of them under "Original Moulds" on the forum, and they can be ordered through there as well.

            Good luck and don't be afraid to ask "silly" questions! I certainly asked a few in my time.

                            Ted Smith

You can call me on 02) 4634-1394. I'm retired so any day might catch me.
Look in "Original Moulds" under "Eureka Moulds page 1" to find a list of moulds that I have.

        Good luck,    Ted.

At last! The wiring is all done. Plus put in 2 brand new Linak Actutors, wired up with 2 double throw relays for each. The side blinker lights are from a 1978 Nissan Skyline, and would you believe that Nissan still had new ones in stock? Amazing. Slowly sanding the body and about to start on the brakes.

Well, the mechanics are pretty much done, actually got to take it for a bit of a spin up the road. (private road, of course! ). Modified the Linak lift positions on the arms, so it is now much easier to get in and out of!

Almost finished sanding all the top layer of paint off, just have the back to go. Now, the decision of what colour to do it!!!!!!!!!!!!
