      Hello Rich,
      Australian delivered Studes came with a Smiths heater/fan, I managed to get one here, all holes match up, I'll get some photo's for you.
      They are a round radiator type with 2 doors on front & demister ducts on top,

      regards, Cus

          All RHC cars used the under floor filler/dip stick through 1964.

            Fitting up the rear fenders & wings on the weekend.
            Fitting those wings is an interesting job, "I think I have a permanent dribble out the corner of my mouth now!"

              Fitting up the front clip, I have the car running & derivable now, still fiddling around with the gaps on the hood.
              It's off to get some gap tweaking & final coat in 2 weeks, which I'm really looking forward to,

              regards, Cus

                Very Nice Job Marcus, are you going to name Her "Vanilla"?

                Sometimes that term is used to describe something Very Plain, but this one will be ANYTHING BUT.

                      Looking great Marcus, hopefully you can bring it down to the National meet in Lakes Entrance next year!
                      Cheers

                        It's looking great Marcus! You did a lot better on those trunk panels than I'm doing. Is that bedliner on the trunk floor?

                          On the trunk floor is a sprayed product called Panel Fleck

                            Thanks Cus, seems the nearest I can find here would be truck bedliner paint.
