Hey mate you wrote “good “ in that sentence. A friend of mine told me once, the only thing you should order from McDonald’s is a cab

Sat the gates on today, also have Beattes rack on it , just to see where I’m at, and for some reason I actually like the miss matched colour of the gates, they have some nice rust stains and are beaten up a bit, I like the look, feel free to trash me about it, you gotta remember I liked the extra cab idea!

I like it Wiz but think you’ll eventually give the gates a coat of turquoise and blend then in.

Or maybe I’m just wanting you to do that because I think the gates on a SC should be like a good tracksuit and all match :D

See you tomorrow, I’ll drop past at smoko.

Although I think matching would look better, I agree they are a good fit as is…..oh shit, did we just agree on something? :lol:

Well done mate, if you keep up these ridiculous builds we’ll have to start calling you jigsaw.

Interior done, except my grey seat isn’t finished, had to borrow the front seat out of my red bus

2 x 25 litre fuel tanks, using the reserve cable to manually switch from tank to tank, no fuel gauge because I don’t think I need one, easy to check the fuel level by looking inside the fuel cap, hey I can use a wooden stick the old fashioned way as well

Very neat work on the tanks mate, lots of small cool details in this. I check the fuel on the MG with a stick, gets a few smiles at the servo.

We all know you just did this because you keep forgetting which side the fuel filler is on Wiz :shock:

Just noticed the black steering wheel. I may have some OG ratty black switch knobs if you need some?
