I ordered a Console Lid cover from a bloke in Cessnock and it arrived yesterday and swiftly put it on the beast. I think it looks great and am very impressed. Cost me $140.00 and you have to send the OLD one back to him. It is leather with blue stitching. :)

I also changed the Exhaust yesterday, sounds SO much better. I have a newer bonnet on Silva as well. :)

I took a pic today of the Engine bay and a few others today, not the best as I don't take pics very well. Yesterday I polished the car. I used Clay first then used Mothers polish 1,2,3 and it came up GREAT. I did get to change the exhaust recently as well, much better than the Tractor Exhaust I had on it. Now it won't set people's alarms off anymore. :)
( I am almost out of the mothers and will be replacing with Meguiars soon.)

You really have fallen for this car hey Papa. Got to love it, that kind of passion is what drives us all in the Mod world, and even after all these years of being around cars you still get giddy lol.
Good work mate.

It is a very very nice clean car.
I was very impressed when I checked it out in the flesh.

I got some Polishing Pads recently and Towels + Tyre Shine but am going to get some polishes. I was thinking of going to a person I know out at Wetherill Park and see what he can do for me $$$ wise. If it goes well, I will let you know. :D

Thanks guys for the comments too. One good thing is that the To DO list is shrinking. :D

Am having a bit of an Hiatus at the moment. I do have some plans for it but not quite yet.
Rego is due next month and I just put new Headlights globes, the Blue one. :)

I had pics taken last night over at Tom Ugly's and when they come through I will post up here. :)

What a great testament to a prolific Artist (better known as Edzie). I didn't think the beast would come up so well but, it SURE did, thanks Wayne. Image
