today was the water pump & radiator. PO told me he "thought the radiator had a leak" - so not one to F around I bought a totally refurbed one from Sean Fox (thanks mate) and proceeded to tear the old radiator out, figuring while I was there....did the water pump - AB had them on sale, so I grabbed that. Then called Zack (cheers mate) at RN, and got new hoses, clamps and a fan belt. Refurbed and painted the fan, the pulley shroud and fitted the radiator shroud to the "new" radiator.

Zack shipped out tonight so, Mon I will get the new hoses and fan belt - put it all back together then should be good.

The wings are still outside in the "frozen tundra" so they are next. Once it warms up past 20 I will go get them and begin work on them.

I did start on the clam shell too...seems like I will need to be a little creative with mounting the hinges for that - but otherwise the clamshell is looking good too.

Make sure you take/post plenty of pics for the clamshell conversion.

funny Mark - you can buy me a beer anytime! But the banjo stays - it is one of the main reasons I love these older cars. My grandad had a '63 with one, and I still remember getting one of my little fingers stuck in there when I was "driving" it with him...my cousin eventually restored that one and sold it

Well - today I put all the rubber/seals on...and then proceeded to royally F up! i bought a new water/oil gauge as the one that was in it had the sender for water broken off. But putting it in I broke the bloody sender wire! So I now have to send it in to Nisonger, and get it fixed - new probe/sender and probably the wire as well - Sheeeeeeeeeet!!

But I did get he water pump in - plus the radiator and new hoses and fan belt.

Thread in version can go straight into the cylinder head. The thread on version requires a little male/male adapter. If you take out that adapter you can use the thread in version. I think.

In your floors photo, the trim that holds the boot for the high-low lever is on backwards. The vertical bit goes up against the firewall. Though I suspect you've sussed that out already.

I spent a couple hours driving a 1966 109 home this afternoon. Coming to me for some sympathetic restoration and some modifications like power steering.

Truck was purchased from drummer Rikki Rockett of the band Poison.

Here's a link to a thread he started when he owned it http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=433391

This thread is great, my RRC will start to be spruced up this summer and once I'm done with that its on to my 65 Series 2a. Can't wait! Planning to start with a new galvy chassis.

The galvy chasssis is a long term thing - difficult to actually think about doing that vs getting it ready to drive and ride around. I am going to be doiing double duty - putting parabolics on the chassis now, and doing a chassis on resto - then sometime down the road doing the galvy chassis - yeah it means taking off what I put on -but hey - i get to drive it now

I hear ya, I would love to drive it again, but the brakes actually went out on mine, the front frame horn was shot and it bent when I hit a wall... I may be able to fix the frame by putting on a new horn, but I guess if I'm going to do it I might as well do it right.

I'm debating on whether to add things like the disc brakes and alternator or leave it original... I'm interested to see how it turns out.

Slowly coming along...biggest challenge or workload to date is the springs! I got Parabolics and boy - getting them on has been backbreaking....actually it is really getting the old ones off! And putting new frame bushings in....GEEZ!

The spring hangers in the rear are cracked through - so new ones there I believe (gotta find em)

Anyway the interior is all done now...take a looksie
