    You wouldn't believe the trouble I had getting the chick at the transport department to issue those :lol3

    I think it was the FYYFF sticker that I gave her that did the trick.

    Mutt is definately the way to go. Just look at mine. Mine is a junkyard dog:lol3. Getting rid of the fairing and head light alone will shed nearly 15 kgs of weight and you won't have to keep repairing the fairing bracket that bolts to the headstem. If you don't do much night riding then an old single H4 headlight is perfect.

    This rig is really coming together nicely and it is going to be beautiful. Thanks for sharing your build with us along the way as it is much appreciated.
    Continued success in getting her ready for the road

    Is that your Ute in the background of the picture of the Harley rig? Looks pretty nice, is it a 56? I didn't know how far back they went, I think the first El Camino here in the US was 59 or 60.

    I thought it was a Holden, the front end looks like a 55 or 56 Chevy, I think they may have sent the dies to Holden after they were done with production in the US. (I worked for GM for 30 years but don't know Holden's history very well.) That would be a pretty unique classic car over here no matter what condition its in.

    Put the winch on. Trust me you will need it when you get bogged. K's are bloody heavy and a pain in the arse to get unbogged (ask the lads who helped me get unstuck on the way to Lorella Springs). Plus I'm a big believer in if you have it you won't need it. Since I've put mine on I have not needed to use it (touch wood). It's also a good conversation starter:lol3.

    Are the cans a new form of crushable suspension:lol3:lol3:lol3

    A little bit of the history found with this car.
    http://smh.drive.com.au/discovery-o...-a-special-fx-masterpiece-20110521-1ey2x.html
    I believe it was a Canadian pre war design but correct if wrong here.
    But for this car to be built in 46 suggests so.
    :D
