Lots of work to go. So far:
- Carby conversion (don't ask me why!!)
- Paint (plum crazy)
- Mini spool
- Sports seats and steering wheel
- 20 inch wheels
- Exhaust
- various new bits and pieces!

Still got lots of things to do but thats the basic stuff done anyway!

I like it too. I know you said dont ask, but why did you put a carby on it?

Have you considered fitting a fair dinkum shaker over that carby? Subjective I know I but I reckon you could get the best of both worlds in terms of performance and looks.

Yes, I will be putting something over the carby/filter eventually. I just havent found anything that I particularly like yet.

Fair enough :) like the twin dump pipes. Is it an EB V8 or from something else?

I also noticed you have the clear front indicators. You can fit AU clear side indicators in with no problems :wink:

It is originally an EB V8 Fairmont...with an $800 price tag!! Bargain! Lol

AU indicators...thanks for that!

Future plans include new roof lining and interior trim (its really crap), B & M shifter...little fix up things and eventually put a stroker on it!

Hey Phill, we're prob taking it over but not entering. Guidelines were a bit strict and its not finished yet so too many things that we needed to get done and not enough cash. Should be good to see your new beast though!!

Couple more during pics!
