There is nothing more pretty than this, amazing restoration from a wrecked Swedish based P1800.
Dented, pitted, tarnished and half paint stripped they have been reborn!
Update April 2014
Painted infills, well not really more like wrapped.
The repair and polish was done by Gary Tischler in Melbourne, phone +61407959289.
The infills were printed by a crowd called Signs of All Kinds, and they are in Adelaide.
They specialise in model railway stuff would you believe.
A long long time between posts but a short note to say the rust is gone! Gone! Beaver panel last bit being replaced and in progress but its reassembly time!
This is stretching the friendship when it comes to originality. Take the stock cast inlet manifold and polish it ridiculously. You like?
Also the beautiful early p1800 egg crate grill is dent free and brushed perfectly, solid aluminum.

One fully reconditioned steering box
Maybe if I have any money left, not likely, I can get one of these bad boys from George: P1800 power steering

I want to get some pics up so you follow the progress, I’m sure that many readers are thinking wait did he give up. Hell no, this is my legacy ;)
What a fantastic site. Plenty of time since the last update but she is finally looking ready for final blasting and body repairs. Sills, tank and floor to go on next. Just the engine, suspension, gearbox & full interior wiring and lighting with bright work to go… Lol!
