 She is coming along nicely. Have you decided on whether to paint it in 2 pack oven baked or acrylic.

Hi Mike,
Progress looking good on the car  :)
Just wondering which bodyshop that you use in Perth? Good quality work at a reasonable price?

Cheers,
Brian

Hi Brian,

I'm using straightline2ten.  I will let you know if I am happy with the outcome.  So far they have been good on communication and are making good progress.  I would say their pricing is acceptable and is based on what kind of job you are hoping to achieve.  Fingers crossed for a good outcome.

Most elegant way I could think of to increase the known plenum/throttle and air filter deficiency of GTA engines.

Sorry. should have created my own thread.

Rust removed. Rust proofed, Painted and in process of reassembly.  Anyone got a lower aircon bracket from a v6 75? Installing the later rotary compressor but need the bracket.

So much effort hss gone into getting right.  Engine top end overhaul. Glass polished. Many NOS parts..last of etc.  Lots of help from lots of people.  She will be stunning.

1:14 in the morning.... !

Mike, do you sleep?

I probably have the A/C mount you are after. Will look today.

P.S. Looking good. Am actually doing some work on my own ATM.
