    Hello to all, I'm new to Forums so be gentle with me.
    Here's a Pic of my Bee. V Code 4 speed. Bought it back in 2017 whilst on holiday in Florida.
    The original colour of the car is F8, so I'm currently restoring it back to it's original glory.
    I hope you like it & I look forward to picking the brains of the experts on this site when I get stuck.

    Cheers.

      Thanks. I told you I was new to this stuff...
      I added the photo but it doesn't seem to appear. I don't know why.
      Here's another. Hopefully this one shows..

          Thanks guys,
          As I mentioned, this car was originally F8 Dark Metallic Green & is all numbers matching.
          It was originally sold from Grand Spaulding Dodge & I have all the original documentation, including the Sales Doc's, etc.
          There was nothing wrong with the car, but I thought I would paint it back to it's original colour.
          So I decided to completely strip the car down & complete a nut & bolt rotisserie restoration.

          Here's a photo of it 3 months after getting it back to Australia.

              Welcome aboard from NJ. Beautiful car! I loved it in lime light. I don't know if I ever saw one in dark forest green so I am looking forward to that. Best of luck with it.

              Thanks to all who have welcomed me.
              I'm not sure whether I need to post this on another page, but whilst I have been restoring everything for the car, I seem to have lost my Brake Calipers. I don't know where I could have miss placed them but never the less I cant seem to find them.
              So I was hoping that someone may have a pair of calipers they would be willing to sell me or can direct me to the best place to buy them.
              There is no where in Australia where I can get them.
              I need the Pin Style Kelsey Hayes Calipers & Pads to suit.
              Can anyone help?

              Thanks.
