    Too true David. Good to see you have plenty of fuel according to the gauge in your picture. E for enough was what we said i the old days. It's so good it's going now. I'm happy for you.

    I thought that might be the case with the fuel gauge. It's probably a sender fault. It will be an easy bug to fix, as you know.

    The old girl passed her mod plate inspection apart form 3 minor issues to be fix before the mod plate is fitted in a fortnight that leave with just cleaning her up ready for full registration and lots of driving.











    And the last is so I can go fishing when driving around.

    David, just a newbie type question but why the need for a mod plate?

    Tell you what that car looks Sh**t H**t just standing still, taken you a few years to get there but got to be worth the time and effort, when these old girls are tastily restored, they draw looks from all walks of life, as all modern vehicles basically look the same these really stand out, i find my old girl gets comments from young to old males and females even though most of the young (as mine is unbadged) dont even know what it is reckon its a cool ute (technically not a ute but a one tonner).
    Point is i have seen guys in there $150,000 Mercs, BMW Porches ect looking at the old girl as it stands out from the crowd, even though there machines will kick it arse, they just do not have the cool factor that the older cars have.

    Hi Greg, the mod plate covers the engine upgrade ( size ), brake upgrade, gearbox, diff, exhaust and oversize wheels as in width and track increase, the transport people in Tassie are some what anal retentive and don't care if you are making a car safer to drive they also apply VSB 14 as a set of inflexible rules not a guide.

    Thanks Tonner, you are dead right about the way people react to the car I have a trade plate on it at the moment so have been able to do a bit of driving with repairs, inspections and test drives, people just seem to lose there shit when they hear then see the old girl the look on there faces is priceless at times.

    Thanks Jacko, I'm not finding to many people that understand the sticker maybe that's a sign of how old I am getting, I looking to catching up next year and having a good look at your Monaro.

    Thanks David for answering my question, it makes good sense that a brake upgrade needs certifying as a friend on his Porsche 928 changed the brake caliper to the later better style but failed to change the master cylinder. This gave him too much rear brake bias and he lost control of the car and crashed. Luckily only he was involved. I know when I upgraded my brakes and my car doesn’t have ABS I tested it on wet roads till I got the brake bias correct by changing the rear bias valves to ensure the fronts always locked first but also maximised the rear braking too. It fairly straight forward but time and money consuming but you have to do it. Your car looks the business btw. Have fun. Greg
