Re: Oliver and Colin's 1960 Series II rebuild.

Re exhaust pipe wrap. If you plan on running in wet weather or through ponds/mud holes, make sure you run the vehicle for a while afterwards to fully dry out the wrap as it holds water and will drastically increase rust over time. Most people only use it in enclosed areas or the header pipes. The fu...

Re: Oliver and Colin's 1960 Series II rebuild.

Lovely build!

One suggestion - you may want to shorten the rear brake line to remove that large curved gap over the axle. Although it will be under the frame and above the axle, it's still a prime target for branches and the like if you decide to off-road her. :x

Keep up the great work!
