thanks ratta might look in to a new 32/36 or rebuilding mine or single side webber. 
just gotta source a 4 speed already have the cables and the peddle box sitting there.
also have the original ford repair manual for extra info.
 


You'd be surprised how much it will cost to go single side draft. Carb, manifold, soft mounts & studs,  linkage kit, cable set up, K&N filter, ram tubes, fuel banjos, fuel line, vacuum line. Then tuning it which will more than likely include the purchase of jets & chokes. Have a look at http://www.weberperformance.com.au/ it's a very good website & business.
I would personally stick to the 32/36 because the cost of doing the aforementioned would outweigh any performance benefit you might get over the 32/36.
The money saved there could go towards practical performance upgrades like wheels & tyres & suspension ;)

I wasn't aware we were speaking rear wheel HP, but even 130hp at the flywheel is a very nice increase over the stock 94hp. I'd be very happy with that on a road car, which the 32/36 is ideal for.

Ray we are both at similar stages. I have considered just plating up the airflow vent thing totally, it has been suggested on this site before.
If you were going the replace the vinyl roof, obviously it would be easier to do a repair job, as half would be hidden.
 
Re the 32/36, I just purchased a reco one yesterday on ebay, the new copies are readily available.
but have you seen the retroject kit?

the retroject is very interesting so i may look more in to it enigine stuff is still aways off.

i'm Actually thinking of not re doing the vinyl roof but keeping the two tone effect buy painting the roof the same colour as the vinyl so repair is a must still need to remove the rear window to seen the rest of the damage.

Ran up the RS Shop to get a price on a rear 1/4 panel just as a guide $1725 so i'm better off finding another car to cut up for the parts i need for that price any other suggestions would be welcomed.

got an original Rear spoiler which arrived today only cost $70 it's not perfect but still very good condition.

have you tried Expressed panels, Magnum or SMCKA (Australia) has some panel stocks?
 
 
Freight from Uk is the cruncher, you want to buy a few a few panels its not so bad.
The arch lip, and lower rust repairs are all available, you don't have to do a whole quarter.

I can fix you up with a lightly used Kent FR32 and followers if you are interested.

Why not fabricate a C- pillar yourself? Theres only a couple of straight forward bends. The herdest bit would be the fold  next to where the boot and window meet. That could be cut and welded... Try making a cardboard template first then move onto steel.

it's not just the pillar it's self but the vent behind it that need repairing as well as the rain rail and panel behind it that need fixing.

I would need to inspect the driver C pillar myself but it dose look good maybe even to good to cut up.
