What stage is ya van @ for the Nats????

Post by free_styler1 on 4/1/2009, 4:03 pm

Where is everyone at with there Van's for the NAts???

As you can see mine is done too the bare bones...

Painted the chassis this week, will get engine stripped/ painted this week as well.
Drop it in, hook up exhaust systems.
Finish pulling down the shell, make a start on the engine bay, then drop the shell.

Times a ticking
Wish me luck... bounce bounce bounce bounce

Done:
* Front interior although still looking for an orange spider gear knob. They are well and truly out of favour these days. I have a red and a yellow one from days past. Should have bought one in every colour back in the eighties. Has any one seen these at swap meets?
* Body
* Engine - Well it goes OK anyway

To be done b4 Easter:
* Windows getting welded over - next week
* Interior in the back - hopefully after windows done

Not doing yet:
* Engine bay
* Power steering fitted - don't trust it not to leak everywhere.

May be pushing it for the back interior but hoping that the welding and paint go well and quick so I can get it to the trimmers in time.

Going down tomorrow to get my drop pipes chopped off, since i lowered it its rubbing on the salsbury, i cant lift the exhaust or it will hit the quarters so i'll re-direct them infront of the rear wheels.

need to fit a radio ( no tunes )

need to make a new rear floor and throw some carpet down to tidy up the rear.

strip paint off front guards and splash some paint on them or put the original guards back on with matching scabby paint.

Paint rim centres.
