HQish Orchid project

Post by 308mate on 3/7/2011, 10:15 am

Hey crew. thought I'd share something for which I've run out of time lately. The van as I found it...I'll b buggered if I can work out how to upload G

Don't know, maybe I'm working it out....


Everything to bits...Wheres a rotissery when u need it?

Now thats the era I was after...

A dash of Orchid Metallic for my recollection of the 70's...
And just a little more...
Full lippy
Two pac in out everywhere..
Vt injected motor & th700 for motivation..
Some juice...
Something to bolt my wheels to...
Bun in the oven..

As she sits while I build a house...
And contemplate what to do next...
And next...
unt..
I've enjoyed everyone elses posts, so something in return. cheers.

Looks a treat.
What did you do with the original guards that came with the van?
I've been chasing some of those style flutes for ages.
I used to know a bloke in Wootton, his first name was Ford.

Hey guys, thanks for the compliments.

Agro, sold the guards ages ago, unfortunately.

Havn't met anyone that goes by Ford. A name I would surely rememba.

Cheers

Hi Mate,

Nice job on the van, its looking very nice.

I grew up in Wootton, my parents owned the property on the highway between the blue silo and the old church on Wattley hill rd.

Cheers, Al.
