Found some bright shinny things on the internet. Removed the shock supports, using a hole saw cut two round 2" plates to support the lights welded these to the top of the shock supports cleaned them up and refitted. I will add small tubes to the inside to hide the wires.

Got an aluminum radiator manufactured. Installed it as far forward as possible as I need to move the engine forward to fit the body. May need to change the water pump to a short shaft one as it will be very tight with the cooling fan installed.

After talking with many people we found an excellent manufacturer for a new body.
Robin and Lynda Barnes from koop de glass. http://www.koopdeglass.co.nz/index.php?pr=T_Bucket
This body was a bit wider and longer which meant moving the motor & gearbox forward 4". As I love doing things 2 or 3 time this was not a problem. Got the panel beater back to take a look at it and he was happy, hardly any work for him and a lot less money for me.

Had a panel beater look at the body and wasn't happy with what he told me. The body was so distorted and out of shape he told me to ditch it and buy a better one. The window support up-rites were both leaning the same way the back concaved in at the centre the sides were out of shape. I went back to the manufacturer and he wasn't interested in helping what so ever. Thanks Steve at Bays Chassis Works Tauranga NZ your product sucks. Found a great use for the body it cooled many beers for the piss-up we had.

Front shock to bat wing manufacturing.
Heaps of weld added then lots of grinding and sanding. Good thing about steel if you take too much off you can just add it back on, not like wood you throw it away. A bit more polishing, cut a thread on and it's ready for the chrome shop.
