Ke38 Van For My Daughter

Recommended Posts

Hi to all...long time since have done much on here..

Many would have seen i had my ke38 van for sale for a while,well time has come that eldest daughter has turned 16 yrs

of age and will in the next 12 months or so,need a car.

 

So what better than to rejuvenate the old nanna mobile for her to use..Yes it requires,rust and body work.and is going a colour

change with finally a bit of a custom paint job..was meant to do this like 4 years ago..oh well better late than never..Also

requires a little bit of mechanical work i e rear brakes etc..

 

New colour is to be the old school ford wild violet purple..but i tell ya the cost of group 3 paint these days..ouch,1 litre @ $104.60

yes that included tax...will be highlighted by a light silver combonation..

 

Has taken a bit of preperation work to get panels flat for dark colour,havent the time to go bare metal on this one..

 

Enjoy the pics of work done so far,moving along quite quickly on this so far (as i have many other things to get done also) always projects of mine waiting

attention..

 

Cheers

So have gone about this a bit unorthodox yes,car is being preped outside in the weather elements and the way

things have been in qld so far this year,very unstable.A WELL THAT GOES FOR EVERY WHERE LATELY REALLY.

 

So just to have the primer covered up (as primer is pourus and likes to suck in moisture) i got top coat

so as to give it a thing coat which also helps me see how straight i got the panels..

Thanks for the kind words everyone :) :rolls:

 

Yes my daughter likes blue or purple for cars for herself personally.I have had nothing but trouble with blue

cars over the years,they are like my own curse..Proof of that last year again when i bought the ap6 val

wagon..yes its blue and yes many things not right..

 

This lil van will have some silver graced on it for a nice contrast of the purple,cos even tho i like purple..its

just too much for me also to be just all purple...my daughter says no probs on the silver dad..so long as it looks

good..he he he..

 

Stay tuned for more pics,time to break out the grinder and weld in new metal and get rid of the rust...

 

Cheers

Terry

Very nice work :y: Is it odd that I'm male & kinda really like that colour?

 

Oh, are the front seats AE80/AE82 items? They just look kinda familiar....
