Off we go again, again !! (67 Westy)

Post by NikC » Sat Dec 08, 2012 3:46 pm

After lots of stress and emails I've finally taken delivery of my new project !

She's a 67 Westy that's come over from South Carolina (which for those interested, is a state where you can ship out of without a title).

Very different plans for this one to the 15 Window, but will still be done by Dave Haywood .... how could I go to anyone else after the amazing job he did on the 15 ....

Anyway, here's the pics:

ARRRRGGGGH Stare it down Hauka style!
The rest looks pretty ok though :?
Lots of 'one year only' and 'end of the run' features. :D

So finally Dave has found time to make a start, been buying bits and bobs from Autocraft (various pannels), Klassicfab (A post) and CE (Weedeat 2, safaris) whilst waiting, so lots of bits already and waiting.

So step one, the strip down is now done, interior and running gear:

still some running gear to come off, but seeing it up on stands and in progress has even made the missus excited !
