Thanks Casey, Nah not really yet, thinking of gettin a different set of wheels but mainly I just wanna drive it!
So I got it back from the rwc joint last friday afternoon (24th) with a reasonable size list for a 41 year old car. Needs new tyres, new front shocks, new seat and steering wheel, shifter needs a light to display park, neutrel etc., small hole in sill needs repairing, rear brakes need recoing and auto needs a couple new seals.
So that weekend cut/unbolted the old seat frame out, put a road worthy steering wheel I had lying around and then installed an awesome
reupholstered seat I got from the 77 I was given and installed a new set of front shocks
Then on monday I went to Eagle auto parts and payed $280 for rear drum shoes, lhs drum, two new rear wheel cylinders. Was only about 250% markup from the US prices!
Wednesday I bought four new Kumho Road Venture 31x10.5's and chucked em on which cost me $660 and they're made in china
Some nice ford fluffy dice:

Then I got it flattopped back to mechanics for him to fit the rear brakes, install the new auto seals and a few other things.
Next thing I gotta do when I get it back is fit new carpet, get rid of the petrol tank behind the seat which has been fibreglassed, get a new gas setup and get it tuned to suit, pickup the canopy I've bought for it and wash and polish it :dance
