    The VW taillights seem at odds to the rest of it , and I'm unsure about those hubcaps.

    Could they have grafted DS wheels onto traction centres ??

    It took quite an effort to bring our Big 6 back to decent tyres after being changed to horrible 15".
    The wider rims that take the 185 x 400 tyres were hard to find.
    Luckily this Big 15 takes the normal 165 x 400 tyres like the light 15. It would be nice if the original wheels came with the car if this is the case.

    And - - - I generally get a flat black spray, pull the battery out, give it a spray, put it back in and - -
    Bob's you're uncle.

    Easier and cheaper than going to Ariel Batteries for a true blue one - - but just - - not as good - - -

    but better than being bright blue.

    that is just absolutely spectacular. I'd be to scared of damage to ever own something like that.... You'd spend to much time to polishing and admiring ... .rather than driving!

    seeya,

    I can see what you mean Shane but generally, I would treat it as a car to drive, not be too precious and enjoy it.
    It doesn't seem to be too mucked up.
    Tail lights replacing, a quick squirt with some flat back on the battery, some rear overiders and get those wheels looking right - - - get in - - start er up, and joy,

    The Big 15 is a lovely car, or atleast our "bomby one is !!

    I have a 185x400 rim if you want one for a spare John. All it would take is a drive to Camperdown!
    It is in good nick!

    Hello Gerry,
    Put my name on it as I'm very keen. The spare wheel is a ring-in.
    Since Warrnanbool you have been on the radar. There are the people we met there that just bought the French 11BL and Michael needs to see the 1916 Huppmobile near you also. We will let you know before we come down.
    I'm still up in the air whether we take the Big 15 or the TH. Schneider to Hanging Rock this Sunday. We've got a blacksmith making headlight brackets and it takes forever to get a new tube in the beaded edge wheel - - - we'll get there.

    Regards, John
