    New section

    I was asked to create a section where the main theme is the Australian members and their cars.
    So here it is, fill your boots.

    is this like back in the 1800's where we've had enough of them so have exported them over to another section?

    Floor Rust.jpg

    Here's one our UK members would appreciate. After seeing some truly inspirational restorations here on TB, I thought I'd better scrape the floors free of all the sound proofing stuff to see what rust lay beneath. After toiling at it for days, this is the sum total of all the rust in the floors (that's a 10p piece for reference). Very happy with that! Naturally there's rust in the usual places for Au built cars - the C pillars, the heater bubble, and a few small ones in the boot wells and lower door rails, but compared to the work our UK cousins usually have, mine's in good shape.

    That's the way us ozzies roll mate.

    A half stolen set on one side, another half stolen set on the other, convict past and all. Also helps avoid the constabulary as they are looking for a white escort with gold wheels but only find one with silver!...

    Nice rebels Matt.
