Hi Michael, yes, I would be interested. Are they new? Is it a complete set with the in between gasket. Can you send pictures, & how much are we looking at.

Thank you.....Chris

When are you coming to Adelaide?

Chris.
Ah, thats right!

Did a flash trip 2 weeks ago to see the Crows crush Fremantle, in Saturday and out Sunday....no time for anything unfortunately. I will be back in September for finals ( I hope ) so I will let you know then, and we can just hope that its not a Power v Crows match or we might not want to catch up!!

Default Port Windows

I can tell you this about Marco's '58 in the Netherlands with port hole windows. They were already installed in the car when he bought it and had it shipped to him. I know this because that Tbird came out of San Antonio, as I documented it for him. So he had nothing to do with installing them. Personally, I like the port hole look of the Babybirds, and also in the Squarebirds. Others may not, but I do.

Hi Ray, I think we both share similar, as you have customized your "ROSE" some what, in good taste of course. About the only 2 main things that I would be looking at, is the Port Windows & possibly the sequential rear indicators.
We haven't heard from Marco for awhile, I hope he's O.K.

Chris, it has been a few months since I last heard from Marco. He was okay, and busy with the family. Since you mentioned the sequential tail lights, as a reminder, that information is posted in the TRL. Here is the link to it.

http://www.squarebirds.org/sequential.htm

Also, the link to Web Electric Products is posted right below it. I think, the sequential unit you would need is the STS-1, according to Eric Jones, write up, but they can tell you for sure. You can get it with a control switch, or without one. I would think I would like to have the control switch. These sequential flashing units are still available from Web Electric Products, according to their website.

A bit of early morning youtubing and I came across this 1960 with portholes. May be of use

Thanks Jon, that's pretty well what I have in mind, with the exception of 1'' to 1 1/2'' lower.

Geez - I have to pay $30 US for a yearly inspection in my state - the neighboring state has no inspections - you should see some of the junk people put on the road here.

Pics are still up of this car with the porthole window - exterior only I believe so can't see if it hits any structure.



Have a look at the weight on that back wheel - must be 4 pounds !

(edit - removed pics - too big so link below - appears to be the same one as in the video)

here is the link...
