Long time since a post.
Not much work done on car I'm afraid.
Working most weekends now so not a lot of time for car work.
I squeezed in a little time to make new trailer ramps and re-wire the trailer.
2 years sitting idle left most of the wiring corroded and it needed new lights.
Added an electric winch so its easier to put the car on.
Leds should last a lot longer.
Toying with the idea if a laser to align the car but Aussie laser class rules make it hard to see in daylight and still be legal.
I could make a dash sensor to say left/right and center or
I could use my laser etcher head but I don't want to punch holes in the car.

Exhaust n bits
Chrissy hols were way too busy to get much car stuff done so sorry for the slow post.
New pics here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ThhSRujTdtP8cD9i6
After going to my exhaust guy explaining that the car isn't mobile to bring it to him. He said have you every used donuts?
Pic 1 are all the pieces necessary to make an exhaust system. The round things are donuts. What an awesome idea. Cut an angle you want.
Pic2 and 3 are the exhaust coming together. A tedious job of cutting, placing, tack welding, removing and welding. 1 joint at a time.
Pic 4 is a virtually new muffler I had left over from another Eureka. So waste not - I had to make a sleeve for it though as the inlet was 3mm too small.
5 Finished. Although hard to see as it is all tucked up neatly on the motor.
6 was my rebuilt radiator which is now installed and piped. No leaks!
Test fitting the seats in 7.
As there is practically nowhere to tow or pull this car onto a trailer, pic 8 shows a tow arm and removable eye bolt I made.
This bolts onto the H beam and tucks under the front tub. The eye bolt can be screwed into a hole behind the number place.
I spoke earlier about using a mesh on the front of the ears. 8 is a finished product.
Pic 9 is the interior coming together.
Pic 10 is me finally working up the nerves to drill holes in the side of the car to fit the mirrors.

See ya
Peter

I thought as much. I'll probably have to put my annual leave soon.

G'day gang,

The plan for 2021 is very much still Bairnsdale Victoria in October like last year only this year we're anticipating that it actually WILL go ahead (fingers crossed).

So stay tuned and details will be released as they come to hand.

PP.
for life.
