Saw it on your Facebook page! Nice magazine spread. I wish some of the Mags in the US would feature stuff like that. A pristine car is nice, but a driver is way cooler.

Thanks Guys. yeah I wish the US mags would catch up to the times. all the pretty and paint cars are super nice and worthy but it kinda gets old seeing the same thing just different color/wheels every month.

I have to admit that the newest HOTVWs mag with octo/classic/prada coverage was refreshing. Something was different. The mag had a different look/feel to it.

Good to see some home grown gear instead of chinese junk that hangs off most of our cars these days =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Good looking car man, good job.
How are those "offroad" extended control arms treating you? Any input on those would be great! Thanks.

thanks. the control arms are very nice. no more shortening my panhead. They give some added leverage on the spring packs which helps the ride but you end up adjusting the adjusters up some to compensate. that said I love them

Chase Hill built long arms with caster built in

and they center the wheel back in the wheel arch. no more cutting up the head light buckets also

I flat panned the pan also and just finished up the correct (not # matching) 56 pan and dressed up the motor along with the ragtop graft .

nice job getting the ragtop in without to much damage to the paint.
I like the towers on that beam, nice and strong.
seats look comfortable???

this thing is a rolling artwork man, when you look at what you started with, just amazing bro.

I love the whole project, I've always wanted to do a car with Aussie flash trim for many years.
