When you say turret install pics do you mean that you're going to turret the rear end of your estate Rob? If so, won't it reduce the load capacity a bit?

Beat me to it Miss Icey! That estate looks fantastic, I've never really admired one before - probably because I've never seen one in the metal before (apart from that one in Croydon as I drove past). I really want one like that, would even consider saving a ropey one. If I could find one.

The hatch is particularly nice too. The engine install is amazing, and shows just how much space there is in that engine bay.

Forgot to say - nice cars by the way :P That's got to be one of the best V8 conversions I've ever seen - are you sure the motor's not smaller than a normal one or is it just that your Chevette is slightly oversized? (if you don't mind me asking what's going on with your passenger side front wing?).

Oh... and I'm a sucker for a good estate :D

Still the old bonnet, but your hinges, had to put them on to get to the MOT station

Front wing is off at the moment, doing some repairs to the inside, mainly the lower A pillar where the door hangs, frekin nightmare to sort to :roll:

sweet car man!
Before you say anything..... no i cant spell or type!

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

Delicious, absolutely delectable! Both cars are very nice. :D

I can only dream of owning a wagon/estate myself. Thoes front vents on the hatch actually remind me of the 1976-77 bonnets on the north and south american chevettes.

In that case this will hopefully be the right thread... (hadn't spotted that one).

Anyway, I say the nice metallic orange colour, or indeed that fantastic kingfisher blue metallic Audi use on the A4.

tough choice eh! all those colours look cool.
NZ desperately needs more immigration and fresh blood. Our eyes are getting far too close together!
