Morris J Type van with hand fabricated rear doors

The rear doors on this little Morris J we are working on were pretty sad and the hinges were that worn I decided to start from scratch. The old doors were going to cost alot to repair and in the end they still would have been rough, it would have been like trying to make caviar from a pigs ear.  Its not a decision to take lightly as it is an expensive exercise to make hinges from scratch and the doors from scratch and get it all working, but the end result is what you are chasing.  The customer now has doors with a good well planned out rubber seal, a proper stepped overlap in the middle, hignges that don't let the doors swing around and hit the body,a high tensile long hinge pin, inner skins that unscrew to allow panel repairs and bear claw latches on both doors so they dont fly open.  The back window was modelled off the original Morris J van doors, of which incedentally is not symetrical, and it is the shape of this back window that makes it instantly reconisable so I went to great pains to keep it accurate to original.

At this years ASRF street rod nationals I saw a neat chassis on display that had our exhaust hanger brackets fitted to it.  I love seing our products being used in different ways to achieve a good result, well done.

Carburettor linkage set up custom made to suit tunnel rams, superchargers, tripples.

Shown here is me developing a carby linkage set up for our AussieSpeed tunnel rams for a Holden 253 - 308 V8 engine. With the carbs mounted east west it gives better clearance at the back of the motor, however it makes the carburettor link more difficuilt.  This kit has come up a treat though and will take most OEM stock throttle cables and kick down cable accessories with slight or no modifications.

38 Plymouth hand formed rear roll pan rust repair

With the rear floor done and the back seat panel finished it was time to roll up a new rear tail pan on the 38 Plymouth.  It certainly was not easy, a complex compound curve with a dead flat bottom and a double swage line through it and a pair of exhaust slots.  It has come up well though.
