Thanks Graham

I can never work out how to post pictures in these forums, I will try and post some more of some of my older buggies.

Thanks for organising the run on Sunday, it was good to get out and about and my kids enjoyed the ride as well.

Thanks again

Steve

Thanks Andrew

I had just put the new (old) rims and caps on the day before, I had also just finished putting the little low back seats I picked up of you the week before that, Im just trying to get it looking as original as possible. I just need a decent 1915 with twin carbs to replace the old 1600, I will then be a very happy and contented man!!

Catch up with you soon

Hey Matt

I scored the front ones off Aussieveedubers with another pair to suit the steel mags the car already had for $50 bucks, the real score was the 15x10's on the back. I went up the coast to pick up some parts of Philsmanx from Aussieveedubbers and he had the pair sitting there, they were a bit pitted and I spent a fair bit of time rubbing them back and filling them before painting, but they came up pretty good. I only spent $100 and that included a roll cage some cannons, the wheels and some other bits. I was very happy.

I bought the caps from Mick Motors for $20 bucks a piece, I like them because they are plain chrome without the emblem

Nice result there Steve. Got to be happy with that.

Yeah the wheels look great and the centres are nice. You did a good job.

Matt.

I thought I might try and post a couple of recent photos of the old girl, these were taken after cleaning it and getting it ready for RACQ Motorfest!

I have been slowly getting everything back to a more original looking set up.

I like the roof. It is high enough for someone to sit in the back. 8)

Thanks heaps Nuts for posting the photos! one day I will work it out myself!!

Mark, The roof is not high enough for an adult to sit in the back, but it is just right for my 5 and 4 year old. I think they have a few years yet before they hit the roof, then its time for a Manxter!!!!

For those that a wondering what has happened to my yellow rocket, I decided to rebuild the motor completely.

It already had a 1641 kit with a mild cam etc, and with the weber went fine for my likeing. If I was interested in Subi/disk brakes etc etc setup, I would start with a much less original Manx.

So I bought new heads, pistons barrels etc etc, and all the bits incluidng flywheel, crank etc are on their way to Toowomba tomorrow to be balanced.

I have also had a little work done on the new heads, so the whole thing should be running like a clock in another couple of weeks.

It has been hard going cold turkey (first time without a running buggy in 6 years!) but I am looking forward to hitting the beach and some bush tracks with you all in the near future.
