This is my First car, bought it back in 2004 for a small sum of $220, and had been sitting in the backyard slowly getting work done to it....

i had rebuilt the engine in at school, and it went well until i smashed it into a culvert less than 24 hours after it being registered, resulting in the X-member, lower arm, strut, stub axel, balljoint (that had just got replaced) either being destroyed or bent....

After getting it back on the road it had a large knocking sound, sounded like bigends or mains, turned out to be the cause of the cam sprocket stripping one row of teeth....Long Story...

SO in went the new engine and box ($150), dosn't fall out of first anymore, and the knocking is gone, but has been replaced with loose tappet...

Then after getting all this in and a bit of new oil and a filter, it was using ALOT of water...So using my "automotive detective skills" worked it back to being the headgasket... So off to Bursons with my handydandy Discount card, got the Gasket, drove home and started to remove the head....
When i pulled the head off Number 4 had water sitting in the dish of the Super shiny piston... put it all back together, and yeah its all good now, except it blows abit of smoke occasionally on start-ups....

8/1/06

I get back from The Falls Festival, look in my car....i have a cd player... Pioneer unit, with some 50w lanco (or somethings) in my speaker boxes out of my room...

anyway.. skipping forward.. i got to work, with the help of dad to install some 80w 2way $9.99 autobarn specials into the bootlid skin... so out comes the MDF and the jigsaw... bit of magic and i now have speakers in the back.... it was missing something...it sounded ok, but needed more, luckly i had some clarion 4", out came the mdf and the jigsaw again, few hours work later a now have new kickpanels and speakers and KAPOW!!! some sound up front!! in goes some Kanye West and out come the beats..
Get photos later

Tom210, you might want to try painting between the windscreen and hood matte black, that is how the KB10 option was done as it makes the hood look longer.

the interior of my July '75 120Y farm hack "The Iiron Maiden"
looks like that "cleaning out" pic, but it has seats and a console... and NO CARPET does have floor mats though! as I do need some sound deadening qualities....

before you say why did I remove it...

1) the only carpet remaining was along the tranny tunnel... UNDER the floor mats there was NO carpet...

2) as an ex B&S rig the carpet was soaked with beer... which stank

3) the hotdog muffler isn't that much louder now either

4) and being that coconut fibre stuff it had to go as the seats have the same stuff in 'em anyway they ended up rubbing on my skin and red welts came up!...

"The Iron Maiden" looks quite different now than in that pic... the bonnet scoop is gone and the bonnet and valance are different and it the rims have been painted silver (VHT chrome paint)

oh... I almost forgot it has a "Taarzan Horn...

Met one guy in a red 1200 ute at a servo not far from city park though... had a lengthy chat with him until the guy from the servo came out and asked if he was still going to pay for his fuel

yeah i removed the carpet, it was crap.. not because it was blue but it had been wet, mouldy and just generally icky, and just chucked in some mats.

and dazza it was most likely school holidays, and was the guy you met barry?
