Hubcaps made of Unobtanium!

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.

Bump

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!

Inlet manifold to drool over

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.

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