    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    This episode I make and install a custom headliner in the Z.

    I chose to gloss over that bit 😉

    Awesome. I have run out of 'likes' for the day apparently.

    No apologies necessary, I love all this stuff. As for finding those in Aus', they are much harder to come by here because they were never sold here. There are some around but mostly they are nice ones someone imported and they are VERY expensive. I just did a search and there are 6 Chevy 3100's for sale in Aus and they range in price from $37k-$87k AUD (so around $27k-$65 USD). That said Z's are super expensive here too with the current advertised 2 seat Z's ranging from $32k to $65k AUD.

    I will definitely have to add one of those to the future build list.

    That is so cool. I love that body shape, I would love to build that as a rat rod with a new chassis, but leave the patina exactly like it is!

    I have just had a look and although the gauges are in the newer dash, there is no harness in there, so I will have to head back out to Zac's and see what I can scrounge. That will need to be a job for later though, as he is not just around the corner from me.

    Today I started to replace the wiring in the car and getting it ready for the engine.

    Absolutely. The full size trucks definitely have their place, I am just stirring things up 😉 I know a guy here who has an F650 triple cab, and basically it is just taken to small fairs, etc, to give charity drives and as an attraction. I am sure that is still a big vehicle there, but here it is a spectacle. Now that is my type of truck. I am definitely interested in doing an early Ford or Chevy truck build one of these days.

    I have an old Mercedes ML500 and it can tow 3500kg. I have driven across the country with my heavy lunk of a car trailer with car on it, and it will sit on 120kph up any hill without trying AND I can park it anywhere 😄 I used to have a Holden ute, and the tray on that was fantastic. Long and low so you could reach into it. I had a Hilux after that and I hated it as the tray is so high, it is a pain to get things in and out of. That is why I decided a comfortable SUV and a trailer is the better option for me. That said, if I was travelling around the country to race events or similar all the time, it would be nice to have a big enclosed trailer, but I don't have the need for it at this stage.

    I believe that there are more F150's made than any other vehicle in the world, and it is only sold in North America. Silverado's are just being introduced this year I believe in limited numbers. The F250 was available for a couple of years a decade or so ago I believe, but very few sold and they discontinued it. We don't really have any need for the big trucks here, although does anyone really need a truck that big? 😉

    Haha, the Hilux is a big truck in Aus 😂

    Haha, Supercheap Auto is the Australian version of somthing like Autozone I think. Our most popular tradesman vehicle is the Toyota Hilux, think Australia's version of the F150.
