  1. Well Earl, you'd better come over and see it for yourself! You know you're always welcome! Cheers Grant
  2. I have pics of a very original car that we tried to get as close to as possible. A green sedan belonging to a guy called Wayne. Some of you will know the car. Here's our dash...... Cheers Grant
  3. They do great work. No denying that Andrew! Out of interest though, what convinced you to go with a brown woodgrain as opposed to the red of the original? The brown does look quite classy as Buickkuhn says. Cheers Grant
  4. We just got our glass from Bobs from memory. Sometimes if you call Bob, you find there are parts in stock that aren't listed in the catalogue. Cheers Grant
  5. Nest time she goes to Grandma and Grandad's, they can get some pics with the coupe! Although she prefers the 35 Dodge... Cheers Grant
  6. Ha ha!!! Nice Mike! My daughter's a model. Perhaps she could be our girl? Cheers Grant
  7. Thanks Bud! This is a great forum with very cool guys, and each and every one is a mine of information. Mark, I did end up over the ditch a couple of months ago. In Brisbane, which is a beautiful city I might add. Sydney is very nice too. You guys need to come down under for a break! Cheers Grant PS Touching wood and everything, but we've stopped shaking here for the time being!
  8. Aww!!! Thanks guys! Best forum on the net with awesome blokes! Your blood's worth bottling. Cheers Grant
  9. Yep! The flash heater! We need the bit that the hoses go to under the vent as well. Alan has a nice factory picture of all the stuff together. Cheers Grant
  10. I'm still alive!! I quit my radio announcing job after 22 years in the business back in August, went on a south Pacific cruise, and had about 9 weeks of bumming around the house trying to catch up on jobs. Then last month, I started work at the local Mercury engine dealership in town, Mr Boats, selling parts and accessories. And I love it! Always been a big boating fan. And finally, I'm in the automotive industry (sort of!). The upshot is, I don't get as much time to browse the forum as I did when I sat on my butt doing nothing in the studio. Dad's on here every day though and keeps me up to speed. He'd be on here himself, but can't type worth a damn and has no intention to learn, despite me hounding him to try. I think he considers it women's work!!! Lol!! I do play a bit of cricket and still try and play rugby with the Woodend Golden Oldies as well. Great fun! Do you guys still play a bit of football? Do you have over 35 year old teams and play socially? Maybe you should! I've been setting up a charity that takes care of less fortunate people's car troubles, and getting a bit more politically active as well. As far as car stuff goes, I still mess about with the Stingray. I try and encourage dad to get stuck in to the Buick as much as possible. I think it's important to do as much as you can while you can. Hence the running and sport. After all, you're dead a long time! I'm still keen to help with any issues you may have, although I recommend you email me on magrath@orcon.net.nz. This forum is THE best I've been on, and I have a HUGE amount of respect for you guys! Cheers Grant

  12. Rod, I'd use a fiberglass repair kit to sort your rear armrests if I were you. That should hold everything together nicely. Cheers Grant
  13. Heavy duty motor cycle fork oil. Works like a charm. Cheers Grant
