Operation Reconstruction

Saturday morning rolled around, and Scott arrived early with his wife and daughter in tow. Damian also had a visitor staying, one of his former campers from Camp Quality Nik, who had come to visit for the weekend.

Getting to work, the boys (with the "help" of all and sundry) commenced attaching the doors. A mammoth effort saw three doors and the boot on by lunch time (what a pain door alignment is!!).

After lunch, the final door was attached (proving to be the most difficult of them all), while Damian completed the engine bay (bonnet hinges, suspension turrets etc, along with respraying the black sections to fix up green overspray).

This is how the engine bay now looks!

Some more badges etc were also attached...

Along with most of the external chrome (excluding the side trim - the boys need to acquire new clips for that). Booger Mobile was then given a thorough wash to remove little bits of grunge and dust that had fallen onto it, and the windows were washed inside and out for the first time in at least five years...

Here's a sneak peek at the reattached chrome!!

The good news is that Booger Mobile is READY to be unveiled to the world on Saturday 25 July 2009 at the Nambour Swap Meet. Rest assured for those followers who can't get there, Damian will be posting a full set of pictures of Booger Mobile after the event!!

Hope to see you all there!
