Hey Mick, always wanted to say this, love your profile pic, showing off that you have a sunroof. Is it original or grafted?

Thanks :)

The roof is an original but not to my car. I had the good fortune to be able to buy it from another sunroof owner back in the UK, they had purchased a complete roof cut just to get a replacement motor for their own project. I carefully unpicked the roof skin from my car and swapped the complete roof skin over. I spot welded it back in the same way as the original.

I had to search for a fair while to get a replacement motor and some parts from the sliding mechanism but eventually found what I needed. The only detail that is not correct is the switch under the dash as I have yet to find one. (not that I really looked very hard).

Hello All. My car is a '65. I'm also waiting for the body-shop to have space for me... Ive collected a bunch of panels from Belgium inc. floors, sills, arches, doors etc.. All new A-Arm suspension from the US, and a 3.6 Subaru engine, with a 5 speed box and a Vintage Air AC setup. Ive spent almost 2 years collecting parts so that when we start welding I can keep going all the way through to completion. A long long long long way to go....

This build will be insane. Would love to get a ride in this one day.

Do you think it would be ready for the nationals next year?

Hi Steve, thanks mate, you're a bit far away for me to cruise over when my car is done.
