Hope this works, photos from image shack

next photos will be the finished paint job back in my shed

I don't know what to think about imageshack but they wanted access to my administrative authority and to "update my browser."

Might I recommend http//www.imgur.com ?  They were created in partnership with the megasite reddit, and they offer nothing but seamless, fast free storage of pics, videos and files.

I use "photobucket" it's very reliable and they offer a phone app. Great job on restoration. I hope that one day I will have euro headlights and bumpers on my 300sd.

Hi Nathan,

Love to catch up with you cowboys, however Saturday is my main work day. could arrange a late BBQ at the ranchero? say 4pm.  Get a lift down with Carlos, Benji or Markos. We'll have a hoot of a time checking out the twins.

adios

Was just thinking about a Melbourne GTG.  How about we aim for the morning of 22/2 in Melbourne.  Nathan, are you flying in that morning?  If so, my factory is 10 mins from there, or can meet you in town if you're staying there.

Proposal would be for a morning coffee, speak shit and we could head to Roberts later in the afternoon?

I'll add this to the org section.

belated update,

here is some recent work on the 6.9 resto,
photos of the interior after having been cleaned and re finished with vinyl paint
and the leather seats were cleaned treated and re-dyed
I am very pleased with the results.
