Custom Resto 71 Dare to be Different

Discussion in 'Restorations' started by outlaw, Aug 11, 2011.

  1. I really want a full width seat but I want the middle one to unclip and lift out so I can you the walk through or double as a storage box
     
  2. Maybe you could adapt something by using a couple of split rear seats?
     
  3. That might be an idea I've been looking into a few things need to be secure though
    Modern cars have clip in seats so maybe mod one of them

  4. everything has gone of to the trimmer / she is running now - i.c.e kit is all working properly - a few mot jobs to finish when i get a few spare hrs - the end is in sight :burp::burp::burp::burp::burp::burp::burp::burp::burp:

  6. Looking Ace Outlaw!
     
  7. A big push on to get things finished - drive shafts all swapped out - fuel tank lines and filters all done - dizzy swapped out for electronic unit likewise the coil - all the rear underside is painted nice and detailed - new master cylinder fitted - Trimmer dropped over today and had a foam fit out on the rear seating area will look lush - the to do list is getting smaller

    I just sat and read this whole thread again just for the pleasure of seeing you take a dodgy looking rust bucket and turning it into a unique and fantastic looking camper.
