Welcome Mike , 
Get some pictures up mate  
My heritage is Scottish ( Grandparents ) maybe why im so tight !! then they moved to the north east. 
Glad your not looking back , I've lived all over the world with my line of business and there is  nowhere like Australia , Life is easy here .

Little update , 
World cup subframe arrived from manufactures so headed to bodyshop to fit to check it .
Had already fitted the quickrack I rebuilt . 
Still havent decided if ill fit the electric power steering or stick to the old school .  
Ive built an uprated roll bar mount  in 1 peice instead of the 2 feeble brackets and used double width brackets x 3 . 
Im happy with how tight this all feels

So another set back. 
I visited the bodyshop today for an update as they were not answering my calls to find no one there .
Several calls around i eventually got to speak to the owner .
He has sold the business .. bloody brilliant !!!  what is wrong with these people --
Just got home after having the scort recovered from the empty shed. 
Next house I build will have enough room for a booth , I hate relying on people to do things for me but in the mean time .....
Can someone please recommend a decent honest body shop within a couple of hours of wollongong. 
Shell is as new in primer , requires no body work and i just need someone to shoot the color and laquer in a decent booth.

I know them and have seen their work, specialise in classic cars and rods. Drop in and have a look they are not far from you, however as all reputable places they are busy.
