Ok picked up the new project yesterday. Its a WB panno that I purchased form a mate of mine.
He decided to buy a finished car Holden WB one tonner. He purchased the panno and sent it to a panel shop to get rust removed and resprayed in a different colour (originally white). The car was going no where after six years in the panel shop which was originally said to take six months.
He also didn't like the WB front and purchased Hz front panels. Its a bit like a UC no one really took to the looks of the WB fronts.
I drove it onto the car trailer so the driveline works and I will retain the current engine and driveline which is all original.
Even though the car is stripped down all the parts have come with it ready to reassemble. The body was straight before going into the panel shop and is now in primer.
I am going to do the body prep and paint myself but its been about 25 years since I last resprayed a car and have only used acrylic so I hope I can get some hints from the painters on the forum.
Looking at the original tags this panel van is as close as you can get to the HZ sandman spec.
I hope Byron and Terry can shed some light on this panel van. I reckon that this build spec wouldn't have been very common.
tags read: 2 seat, 253 m20 4 speed, 10 bolt LSD.
Car also has yellow needle GTS instrument and GTS steering wheel. Four speed centre console and full length interior hood lining. Factory power steering.
