Will be better when he gets rid of the type 4 bumper, which he does intend to do later on. It's just there for getting it on the road.

Good work Martin.

Hey Guys 'n' gals,

Thanks for all the comments.  I only half like the MkIV bumper.  I have acouple of ideas of what to do with the rear.
1. Finish modding the original Eureka rear to take frenched in round LED lights
2. Mod the MkIV by removing about 150mm from the middle & then blending it into the under lying valance.  But that can wait till winter.  For now I intend to drive it till I drop.

THe exhaust tips were given to me by a friend. I actually have twin hexagonal pipes that I need to have chromed.  Nothing like them off the shelf, and thas what I like.

This W/E is the Stoneleigh Kit car show.  Nothing like the street national back in Oz, no show and shine or burn out comps, just a paddock full of owners kit cars & pavilions full of manufaturers and component suppliers.  Over night entertainment, but the Nova club has develped a reputation for partying well into the morning.  Philfromsa will be there so I'm sure he will have a yarn or two to spin when he gets back down under.  I'll be flying the Eureka flag and will take lots of pics and a few vids for you all.

Catch ya later

My suggestion is to keep the 'reek rear with the frenched lights.

Phil will have to have a video and photos for us when he turns up for the Annual Meet......    Wink Grin

Streek,

Here is a link to my photo bucket video of the V6 firing up for the first time.  No body shell and the exhaust is much as it is now. 



It sounds much better on the road and I have the driverside elephant ear connected directly to the air box, full throttle sounds a delight, and when you shut it down there is a nice hissing sound as the last of the vacuum is filled.

I should have some on road footage soon as the UK's big show is this week end.  I will eventually get it on youtube.

Hi All

A representative of your Club (PhilinSA) attended the Club Nova meeting at Stoneleigh in UK over the May bank holiday weekend. Phil passed on the good wishes of James, your president, at the end of our AGM on Sunday, and as our furthest travelled member (yes we convinced him to join, if only for the food) he won the annual prize in the 'Furthest Distance Travelled to a Show' category. Here is a picture of him and Bushboy showing their awards. Bushboy won the Technical Modification award for getting the Reek and it's Ford V6 on the road and driving to the show.

 

Thanks for the Eureka Club goodies that Phil presented me with. I have taken over as the Club Nova Chairman and look forward to our combined efforts to keep these beautiful cars, wherever in the world they are, on the road. When I next come to visit my sister in Sydney I will make sure I get in touch.

Thanks

Mick
