Corowa would be nice. I had my workshop all lined up to go. Plans might change. Not sure. A gunbuggy would probably be more interesting though.

I'm sure everyone would love to see as many gun buggies there as possible.

Good luck mate,

Hi Mick,
I gave Allen a call today. He is no longer in Melbourne. He has just moved to Glenrowan this week! He is currently working out of a little workshop at home while he sets up the business again. Nice chap to talk to. Price was where I thought it would be. Now I just need to find some seats for him to retrim lol.

Can he make seats from scratch?
I'd be interested in a pair. I reckon I'd even be able to borrow one to use as an example. And the Inter seats could do with a freshen up too.

I didn't ask directly but from our conversation he spoke only of trim, ply base and foam. I figured he would not be able to do the metal frame from that.

Looking good Mick.
Might be my New Years resolution to get my LRPV resto started.
88 and 110 pretty much sorted. Was hoping to get shed first but may as well crack on.

Hi Cliffy,

Thanks mate, yeah she's almost there. Just need to fit the winch and apart from a clutch problem ( I've installed 2 new clutches so far)  its all good.

Mike K sorted out a front suspension / steering issue I  had and now it's driving much better.

I'm planning on taking it to Cooma for the 70th celebrations.

Goog luck with your LRPV, I have a heap more ref pic's so let me know if you need anything.

Cheers mate,

Mick
