is there any more progress pics on this car, id love to see some.
sadly not at the moment its on the back burner for a little while whilst i do other projects i hope to be making a start on it in the new year I'm slowly gathering parts and info for the project but its not going to be a quick job with what i have planned there will be a lot of major engineering going into this to hopefully make an FB like nobody has ever seen
I look forward to seeing this done, truely it is one car I'm waiting for progress reports on. Are you still carrying on with the green and pinstripe plan, volvo engine and salt flats wheels, Hope so, i reckon the plan is spot on, i always loved Russ Hancox's old fb wagon, an all time favourite for me, so, it'll be good to see another one on the scene! Cheers paul

Cheers Paul plan is pretty much the same at the mo few small changes and the wheels may be different as ive found a few others that are pretty cool and may look even better hope to get it in the workshop by the beginning of march but its going to be a very big project with some the bits i have planned so wont be an overly quick project

today has been a fairly busy one and a slightly painful one . I started the day with fitting a tow bar to the Bora then about 11:30 got stuck into the victor armed with grinder and welder and various other weapons of standard car destruction . i was working away with my old lump hammer at one point knowing it had a busted handle (its years old and the handle finaly gave up just before i was using it ) i was holding it close to the head the part i hit with the hammer moved and the hammer folowed through along with my hand skinning 2 of my fingers i don't have much feeling in my hands but that bloody hurt lol . workshop bandage later (bit of cloth and some masking tape) and and i was back on the car . only tacked but its taking shape lots of triming and finishing to do but the general shape is getting there.

deffo not going van with this one its going to be a 2 door wagon it will have lightly smoked glass on the sides as the glass down the sides is all flat it shouldn't be to difficult to get it made . i have engine box and axle secured was going to go volvo 6 pot but the engine its getting now came up for the right price so now it will be going 2JZ instead
Bookmarking this one. The FB has gotta be one of the best-looking wagons built in the UK, and it looks like you're making a car that Vauxhall should have built!. All it needs is a nice stainless b-pillar for ultimate phantom win (hint hint!) !
