    Hi glide, it's a long read now lol

    Thanks mate, it's all just practice & we all can do it.

    I wish she was finished, I've had a few weeks away on other stuff. Now it full time back on the build until late November

    When I first started reading I thought you would have been done by now but it seems you still have many more things to do. I can't wait to see how this thing ends up.

    I stripped her back, to finish the last bits on the chassis.


    Welded up the front loop & tailshaft bearing support, no photo's finished & painted




    While the body was off I sorted out a few little bits on the body I wanted done;
    - holes for the wiring through the firewall, floor, doors, rear of cab, etc, plus a couple of other bits.

    1. Flush the rear window

    made up the buts I needed, inner frame & outer frame.






    Tacked the inner frame in, then do the outer frame. The two will be fuse welded together.

    My next job was something that has been bugging me for a while, what to do with the wiper grill. I don't like the look of it deleted & don't really like whats happens with it standard (RUST), so why not combine both lol

    Simple to say, a bit of work to make it happen..

    First cut out all the crap you don't need (drain under cowl) was a dodgy repair from previous owner..


    The workout a new drain system, which is removable (I don't have pictures of the finished product as it not finished as yet lol)


    to explain a little, it is a little longer than the grill & only 1" deep. It has a collapsible seal around the edge pushing up onto the under side of the grill, I made some brackets to bolt onto the angle shown in the picture (on both ends) on the drivers side wiper there is a lip up to the bottom of the grill to stop water getting past.

    I will have 2 drains that pipe down to the AC drain, through the floor. I can remove this with the AC & dash in, I might have to remove the AC ducting (wasn't in when I tested it).

    Then I welded up the grill


    You can see the new drain, much closer & all the wiper arms are under the drain now.

    Lovin the flush fit rear glass, are you doing the windsreen as well? I'm still fighting with myself to do the flush fit thing.

    Neat idea with the redesigned drain as well.

    I'm surprised you didn't delete the wiper motor from the firewall seeing as how you seem to have more room under the dash with the new drain.

    Thanks mate,

    Yes. All the hoses are teflon, just to keep them the same.

    19/12 - I stuffed up (thanks David for letting me know) the hose is an AC hose, I assumed Teflon. (Mine is from Aeroflow)

    Thanks mate,

    Not sure as yet, need to get hold of an old screen to see.

    I was thinking about it, but I like the old school look with it.

    Looking good Andy, so many things youve done ive been contemplating doing. Im still torn over whether or not to flush fit my screens. I did kind of came to a decision to not flush fit the front, but we'll see lol. Rear screen is done exactly how i was planning on doing mine. Im really hoping to get a heap done over the christmas holidays, but with kids and stuff we'll see how far i get.. Ive done a little of late but nothing quite worth updating my thread over.

    The first issue i had with using an original front screen was that where the roof peaks in the middle the profile of the original screen didnt follow, it sat higher. i can get a photo if you would like. Maybe that will be different with different screen manufacturers but i dont have alot of screens to check against. Second issue is i wont know if a replacement screen will fit the opening as well as the original.

    So as much as id like to do it im still not sold on doing it as i want to drive it alot, if it was a pure show car id do it in a heartbeat.
    A minute of thinking can save hours of doing
