Hi Guys,
Got the pan in at work for painting, just need to cut the hand hole for the clutch cable ( great idea BTW)
And the cross piece for the pedals.

the pedals I have are pretty crusty this bug seems to have lived under the sea for a while.

Does anyone have a photo of one of these as I will need to make a the new bush.

Also does anyone have a spare steering arm? Mine is stripped out.

Pretty sure I can find you an accelerator arm and probably the Pitman arm as well. I will be up in Cains at the end of the month if that helps ?

Wow that would be huge.

Do you know any Bettle/Buggy nuts in Cairns?

Will these do for what you need ? The accelerator arm is not the one I was looking for, so if I can find the better one then I will bring it to Cains.

That's the primer, next is sealing the seams and then the two pack top coat.
I was thinking of bed liner or similar underneath.
