HELL FUCKING YES!!! Let’s get this happening. Let me know if I can help with anything mate, let’s have beers at your place and get the Adelaide crew around to assess the damage. Invite Colin, he’s shit at turning spanners but he usually has beer.
Chasing any Neiman steering lock parts, will consider anything.

Probably not quite ready for work to commence just yet.
But always up for some beers and a damage assessment!
First I need to empty all the crap out of it and find somewhere to put it

Well the plan will be
Rob a bank
Clean it
Fix the rust. As little cutting as possible (keep as much of paint as possible).
Rejuvenate the current (original) running gear. Bung in a motor (cheers Mick) once it’s had a freshen up
New rubbers
Roll it!

Of course it sounds quick but it won’t be

They should do a re-make of the Italian Job using Splitties - now that would be a box office hit!

Just for you Brad
I did a little test on the shitty rear corner
As I was at the shops I grabbed a can of bam oven cleaner
A quick squirt, left it for about 15 mins and wiped off with a wet cloth
