Gday Matty I owned olive oil before the previous owner and restored her almost how you have her now, if you have any questions about her don't hesitate to ask. Regards Tony. Aka Series workshop.

Cheers for that Tony. Aka Series workshop.
She is coming along nicely , she is not putting up to much of a fight .. so far drivers rear wheel cylinder replaced , new brake line made for that side also , super sloppy gear stick fixed , i got to go for a lap or 2 around the block at the mechanic's the other day ( on a trade plate ) found a few more issues .   She now engages 4wd . She has 2 small  holes in passenger foot well , need to get that assessed to see if we patch that or buy replacement panel . a couple of other small things and then we will try an inspection and get her regoed again..
Regards
Matt
