After 3.5 years working on it, this car is finally on the road. A lot of kinks have already been found and fixed, and it’s now a pretty reliable car (for a 70′s carb’d car).
Took some photo’s of a friends 77′ Hilux the other day.
Took a train to Wynnum North a few nights ago to start my adventure in an unfamiliar environment, which turned out pretty good. Ended up heading away from Wynnum altogether and rode through Port Brisbane. After braving the partly pitch black roads and stretched of sewage stained blacktop, I was faced with the decision, do I go home now, or do I ride up the Gateway Bridge? Pretty happy with my decision, not only did I somehow make it up to the top without passing out, I did it in one go, which is not bad for a person of my fitness level (lol).
Decided to take a late night trip to Wynnum the other night with the camera. Didn’t know what to expect really, photo’s are pretty average but it was still nice to get out and shoot.
Quick update. Have replaced the rear quarters, relocated the fuel filler back to its original place, bought new front fenders, tidied up the wiring in the engine bay, gotten rid of the surface rust in the bed, and primed + painted over all the primed area’s as a quick rust-preventative measure. Will be stripping to metal and repainting at a later stage. Pretty much ready for a Roadworthy Cert. and Registration, all I need is to chuck a pair of A3A’s I’ve borrowed off a friend with my tires, a pair of fender mirrors from Japan and a quick tune-up.
Friend stopped by for the day to chill in the garage and talk smack for a few hours.
Good Friday drifts at QR. Mainly hung around the wetpan area, didn’t venture over to main track.
