He is also using mig. That Chev was build from very thick metal which makes it much easier.

Dont worry I am now more obsessed with anti rust treatment than ever before.

The guy doing the work says he sprays the whole inside with Tectyl, but me wondering if I must not paint with NS5 or something as far as I can and then do Tectyl.

Wat is die verskil tussen die Contantia en die De Ville model?

Die De Ville as net die meer moderne een met elektriese vensters en aircon en hy het met 'n 350 Chev engin uitgekom waar die Constantia die 308 Holden gehad het.

Thanx. George helped me today to put it back together. Looks awesome now that it is assembled completely.

Still battle a bit with the carb, but I found a donar carb which I took apart tonight and it seems to be in much better condition than the current carb. Will rebuild it tomorrow night.

Pieter daardie Chev van jou laat my terug verlang na my hoer skooldae in die 70,s toe die manne Sondag aande straat reisies in Klerksdorp gehou het. Dit was die Ford Fairmont GT, Chev Comaro ,Holden Monaro wat sake uitgespook het. Sommige ouens het n sak mielies in die boot gegooi om vinniger weg te kom.
