Can you get some photos of the front chassis, wonder what they did back in the day as a RHD conversion, wether they replaced the front chassis bits or modified the LHD stuff. Love the history of these things. Been trying to work out what the story is with my NZ 54, it's too early to be a NZ CKD build from what I can find out but it has all the tell tales of being one. More photos please dude, looks sweet. Don't paint it!!! Haha

Oh course.

He's in the shop sat waiting in the cool corner, I have to finish a couple of other splits first but hopefully I will get time to get some chassis photos over the next few days.
