    Jason's Southern GT #66

    That's a whole sled pack there my daughter would die for a Huskie like those!! Looking good, I would look to get a set of these I got mine from Paul Bav when he got his build rolling, I think he got them from Mick they make life sooooooo much easier. You can roll the chassis around with ease...

I did a Model A ford a while back and tried to sort shut lines, etc until a felloe Ford A chap pointed out they...
