  7. Hi there I am a pretty good back yarder as well but fitting a new top was just a bit beyond me possibly could have done it but and its a big but some of the stuff Ive read you need a staple gun to stick the top to the rails and one slip and the roof dont fit so I paid for mine to be installed by a pro it cost me $900 in labour as I already had a new top but I am very happy with the result it made my vert look 100% better than before so if you can afford it get it done professionaly thats my advice just look at my avatar and you can see what it turned out like thanks John

  22. Hi Brett thanks for the info I already have orange globes in the reversing light section of the tail lights from a Hyundai fittings and globes the only prob now is I have orange reversing lights which take you back to the sixties and H4 headlights with the parker insert because I have a Mach1 grill with the orange running lights I have re wired them to run as blinkers if they are not happy having 4 orange blinkers on the front I will disconect them or remove them altogether the crap we have to go through to register our cars maybe between us we could let our American cousins just what we have to do just to drive a classic thanks John How about I start first rule to register a Left Hand Drive car it has to be over 30 years old over to someone else now maybe we could start a thread here
