We are now in the home dtretch - thank goodness cause this thing as been consuming my life and money....well not really but it's right up there :lol:

Just about finished installing the electric windows, then in goes the rest of the interior, bumper bars (currently getting modified and rechromed) and exhaust.

These arent the latest photos but hopefully give you an idea of progress.....

Brings back memories.... Mum & Dad surprised us when they picked us up after school in a brand new '62 falcon sedan, ( White with Red interior ) then my brother bought a '65- 66? Ute as his first car ( Blue-green with Tan interior)

I was looking at a ute version today sitting in a paddock and contemplated draging it back to town and "just" doing the minimum to get it on the road as a true "rat" ute complete with a generous moss coating :lol:

I tried convincing my soon to be 14yo girl that we get a beetle for her too - one that I can restore/customize. My brother has one restored that I thought would excite her but nooooo she wants one of those fast and furious rice burner thingos full of electronics that I dont understand. Quess she will have to buy her own car then :lol:

Finished....well kinda still got a few little things to do but nothing that can stop me driving it.

What a journey - not sure I would want to do it again - just takes up to much time that I could have spent "farming"
