Sound and heat proofing done in cab, inside doors, firewall etc.

Also tried a little experiment with the tailgate to break the green a bit

I like it

Nice, well done.
Tip on sound and thermal insulation, add some 6mm high density foam on top of that STP sound mat before carpeting etc and you will appreciate the difference it makes.
My 58 with BBC and headers on, I can not detect any heat transfer through floors/firewall while driving bare foot in the height of summer.

Sooooo frustrating!

Needed a few bits and bobs, ordered quick from LMC truck, you get to end of website and have to pay, there are no shipping options. Then get told you pay and in 48 hours they contact you to ship. Did that and now Red tape. They want a photo ID with your address on to prove it’s you. Try explain that SA Id’s and drivers don’t have home address on??? Zero practical wisdom... they were paid already.... Now to get my money back.

So I go to Ecklers to order same parts, get to end Yay you can check out with Pay Pal so much more efficient.... get to shipping, no options to SA at this time Faaaaaaaaaaark!!!!!

And we’re back to breathing exercises 🙈🙉🙊

Guess there’s no chance to make Cars in the Park this year

What about Summit Racing, Len ?

Recently I ordered something from them, but cancelled the order. A few days later I received a postcard on my doorstep mentioning the cancelled order.

How big are the parts? Aramex Global Shopper works great for small parts - they have a US address (so local shipping for US based shops) and I often use them.
