    Excellent mate, thanks No mad rush so don't worry, she's rested up for the winter now so won't be moving for a while..

    Well, some good movement in the right direction today! Numberplate brackets, mirror mounting plates, air filter housing and wheels have all gone in for powder-coating. The wheel bolts and bumper bolts/washers have been sandblasted, ready for rustproofing (primer/paint). Chrome mirrors, bases, lettering, and front bumper are all off the car ready for rechroming, back bumper and remaining chromework coming off on Saturday then I'll be getting some prices.

    I also need to get a whitewall for the spare.. Anyone know the cheapest place to get Coker Classics in the North West UK?

    New blank gauge arrived today in the post.. Big Props to Big M! Perfect condition and supplied with screws, will finish off the dash pod perfectly.

    Ok, so.. Updates.

    Blank arrived, as above, and now fitted. Finished off the dash pod perfectly:



    Air filter housing and wheels freshly powdercoated:







    And front/rear bumpers and brackets removed for rechroming/powdercoating:



    And took a quick video of her running.. Just because it's been a few weeks and I was missing the sound of her engine..

    All the engine service bits have just arrived from Rockauto, apart from the gasket set which I need to order. I also need to get a whitewall for the spare wheel, which has also been powdercoated, so that's next

    Lookie good, Ryan! It will hurt you when you scrape those rims putting the hubcaps back on!

    Very nice!!

    Well, I get most of my powdercoating for free, thankfully! So I can always get them done again in the future That being said, not 100% sure the caps are going to go back on with all those weights on the front wheel..!

    Bumper brackets and clips all going in to get blasted and coated in the next two weeks.. Bolts all getting blasted and painted, too. Hopefully I'll get a chance to give the old girl a service before Xmas, weather permitting.. Got a few urgent rust bits to take care off, too; Not 100% with my painting skills so might enlist a professional for that job..

    Next year.. Hopefully interior changes (paint, dash refurb, dash gauge perspex, carpets, doorcards, seats, rear shelf, seatbelts..), a respray (money permitting) and stainless exhaust system.

    Anyone know of any good stainless full system suppliers?

    A good wheel balancer should be able to balance your wheels using stick on weights on the inside mate.

    Not on the rim but just behind the face of the wheel if that makes any sense.

    The 22's on my truck have no ugly weights on the outside, they are balanced behind the spokes.

    My Dad has a wheel balancing machine and tried that, but couldn't do it.. I forget why..

    I'll look into it next time I have the wheels off

    Thanks Yeah, the videos were mostly the work of her previous owner Adam (Also a member on here). He's done a great job with her up to now and I hope to carry on the process of getting her back to 100%.
