Am I the only person in Australia with 3 x T34s?? What would a therapist say about this? Don't know, but my answer would be, hey I'm dominating the market. If there are 40 T34's in Australia, then I would have 7.5% market share. I sound like a lunatic justifying my insanity.

So inner engine bay panels fit, now let's sort out the rear apron. Unfortunately the rear apron from T34-3 was also in a bad accident and was full of nicky/bog/filler/bondo whatever you ant to call it. So we use a NOS apron I bought and repair the quarter panels.
The quarter panels are repaired by oxy welding in new metal, so it an be dressed up with a hammer and dolly.
Trial fit, still need to do some more work to the quarter panels.

To continue with the fitting of the rear apron I need this rear engine piece, it was removed from the T34-2 body, the one in T34-3 was rusted away, I didn't want to chop up the body of T34-1. So I put the feelers out.

Back in March, I was very luck to be able to buy a complete Teak interior for my car, steering wheel, seats, pads trims etc etc. from Pieter Grabijn. Although everything will be redone, at least I have something to go of now.

Well, I made my mind up. No body swap for the teak. I'm shelving the Teak for a few more years. All systems go on restoring a 1965 sea blue 1500s T34. T34-2 & T34-3 are both originally sea blue. Birth certificate on its way. So this is the end of the RHD 1966 teak T34 thread for now.
I'll start the new thread for the 1965 sea blue 1500s T34.
