Project Dacey - Saucer Separation

As Australia comes out of lockdown and we are able to gather in small groups again - my family gathered at my place and we lifted the body from Dacey and stuck it on an old trailer that I can use as a dolly.

The term "Saucer Separation" is a Star Trek reference.

A couple more pointless videos of me pulling my G60 apart.

With the worldwide craziness at the moment, I am only working half time, which has given me a chance to make some progress on the Patrol. In these videos I get her ready to remove the body.

Part 5 - Windscreen and Door Removal



Part 6 - Prep for Body Removal

So with the craziness in the world at the moment due to the Corona Virus, I have been partially stood down. This means I'm working 5 days a fortnight until business can pick up again at work.

The good news is that I get more time to spend working in the shed, so I am  making some progress on Project Dacey again.

In this not-so-thrilling instalment, I have a rant, and then remove the radiator and front panel, and the wiring loom.

Trying to start Dacey the G60 before I strip her down.

Not sure I'm going to be using this engine even, but I wanted to make sure it'd still run before I started pulling it apart further.

And obviously I dont mind making myself look like an idiot.

After much delay (about 8 years) I have finally started playing with Dacey the 1977 G60 Patrol in an attempt to restore her.

This first video is a pre-restoration condition report. At least that was the intention, it is more of just a rambling waffle.

If the above video doesn't work - you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqpxVmlx-vc



In part 2, I actually start doing stuff and remove the bonnet and soft-top. 


Stay tuned if you want to see a non-practical computer geek try and restore an old Patrol.
