  1. Paul contact Seats R Us in Brisbane they have the dies to heat stamp the vinyal
  2. i put a tip turbine on my 350 4v and i make 30 psi under full load ,i run a 300+ turbo and it starts making boost off idle and never had a issue with excessive exhaust temps. the only reason for going to tip turbine was the bonnet clearance to inter cooler. so i cant see why you would make more work for your self for no extra gain.
  3. over 15/16 years, it was moved last year. it was pretty well rooted when i looked at it 14 years ago
  4. Yep it is a Series 2 Superliner and it's powered by a KTA Cummins ,it was here in Brisbane and now it is in Toowoomba being rebuilt
  5. Mrs Mack Paul , the RP cabs were made for extreme conditions ie sand mining
  6. AZB755V8 , Sorry mate some things get lost in translation between Australian sayings / slang and the rest of the world ,for example "my mob [my family] your mob [your family] or can be a company/ business /group ," REPCO which is a parts co much like your NAPA. " Don't go to REPCO ,that mob are a rip off" i hope that kind of explains it. Tylden Heritage also does a Bulldog similar to what is used on the rocker covers in alloy ,i haven't seen one yet to judge the quality of the item ,it is 48x 44 mm not chromed ,$ 16.40 AUD . They also do F700 , R600 , R700 , R800 badges For $190 .00 AUD finished and chromed , i'm not trying to take business away from Barry or anyone else and i don't have anything to do with Tylden Heritage ,i know what it is like looking for hard to get items. Steve
  7. AZB755V8 There is a mob here in Australia already making the chromed V8 badges for $155 .00 Aussie dollar or you can buy them for $55.00 unfinished. i have bought 4 for my 797, 2 for the truck and 2 spares ,they are good quality badges .i used to do high end restos and these would be up there for quality.
