Hello HCVC Team,
Back up and at it again!
Have a few life problems to deal with, my darling wife of 35 years decided she wanted her tennis ball sized brain tumour removed, me me me!
Long story of: chemo juice, COVID, ICU, chest infection etc. But she’s back in the game now.

Come on Colin, what made you think you cold put up 3 pictures of your beast and not have to give us the full story? It's a "Need to Know" basis and I need to know.
Sorry Wee-allis, wasn’t ignoring you.
Not really HCVC friendly, but car was built as a tribute to the 60’s Show Cars.
Carved body from plaster & covered in fibreglass.
Did everything except the chrome, upholstery & blowing the bubble- a roof skylight.
On a VW Beetle floor pan.
Mad as a box of frogs, but fun as hell to drive!!

Hello Colin, keep up the good work on the Bedford. Yes it did have welting or black plastic trim between body and guards. Buy it by the metre at any good parts place or swapmeet.
I hope your Wife is out of danger now and she will soon be back at home telling you what you have done wrong!
I read on here some time ago that a good repower is a diesel from a Coaster, Dyna etc. with a super smooth overdrive box, or get one from a Landcruiser or Patrol and just leave the transfer case on it unused. However, unless you find a good one really cheap, I would find out exactly how bad your existing engine is and how much it is likely to cost to fix it. Think about how often you plan to drive the Beddie and whether it is worth spending several thousand dollars to stop it blowing a little smoke.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
