Don't know how I've managed to keep this car - but I have.
Anyhow Over the past few weeks I've been sourcing bits that are missing (thanks to those that have helped).
The idea is I'll put the car together in its shabby state, then when I know everything fits etc, I'll pull it apart and paint it.
The car is a 76 SS 6cyl auto factory air. I pulled the 6 out when I was 18 and put a 308, 4 speed, 9 inch. Went pretty well too....So thats what it will be again.
Just got some questions about this spare wheel cover I'm making....
I've used 12mm chipboard, and Ive got the basic shape. I want to make as close to original as possible. I threw mine out years ago. Has anyone got an original one to measure the cutout
hole on the drivers rear where one of the latches goes. I've got the original hinge, latches and S clip. But I'm keen to find the exact size of the hand grip cut out on the drivers side...
Also, what was used to fix the latches and S clip? I assume it was 3/8" self tappers? Anyone? Also are the latches painted black? Hinge? Chipboard? Satin or flat? Help appreciated.
