Starting back on my cruiser

Postby silveradoman » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:11 am

Walking past my 89 swb cruiser, i noticed the last wof was in 2012.

Body- Rust has set in everywhere.
but worst in the rear quarter and rear side window under the rubbers, then there is the bottem of the doors.

Time to get motivated so have found and ordered a rear quarter replacement pannel from the UK
https://cruiserworld.eu/parts/70-series ... lights-etc

Engine- needs some new parts fitted and sump mod done.

but at the moment just finding where all the bits are will be an effort.I haven't seen the gearbox for a while, engines been on the floor since last wof ended.

The easiest thing to do would be to cut it up and bushbash it, so this time its going back on the road.
