Got only one rear section of exhaust with the project.
Bought a Gardner exhaust system from Red Hook, NY.



Comes well packed. Fedex got it from Red Hook, NY. to Northern Australia in 7 days.



Impressed with the effort Gardner exhaust goes to.



Goes on easy.

Did not notice this detail on the Gardner exhaust muffler until a couple of days ago. They sure went to some trouble.



Today was the big day. Turned the key for the first time.
Once the fuel got up to the Edelbrock AVS2 the engine fired up and idled at 500RPM smooth as.
No smoke from the exhaust.
Smoke in the cabin though, short in the wire to the cigarette lighter.
Got a couple of electrical issues to sort out before I drive it.
The hairline cracks in the outside corners of the heads did leak some coolant.
That's a minus, but it runs, nicely. I'll find some better heads.
I know I can do it now. On top of the world.
Thanks to the TSM, this forum and friends who helped.

Thanks Ollie,
              You do great work.
   A picture you posted in one of your project threads where you got a roll of material and cut and fitted your own floor covering gave my project a huge confidence boost. Came across it just at the right time.

Will be awesome to see it finally back on the road, had been through about 3 owners as a project car over many years. Great work, love the finer details.
I've finally given up drinking for good...........now I only drink for evil.

Thanks Darren,
               Hoping I'm on the road in next few weeks.
Ran it again yesterday. No smoke in the cabin this time.
Waiting on a part from USA.
Got a new regulator organised, alternator was charging over 15 volts at 2000rpm.
Cigarette lighter wiring shorted right from the console up into the dash. Fuse didn't blow and it went up just like a toaster element.
Smoke took ages to clear cos alot of it was coming from under the floor covering.
I must have another wire joined up wrong somewhere.
Scuff plate off, seat out, steering wheel off and spend some time upside down under the dash. Glad I don't have an air conditioner.
Will send some fresh pics and info for the Register when I'm on the road.

Hi There, I've got number 10 RHD AMX and working through a few electrical issues. Wonder how to remove the windscreen wiper switch knob. I've read it locked to the spindle with a small crub screw. I haven't located this screw.

Hi Tomo,
        Great to hear from you. Congrats on Aussie AMX#10. Looked beaut in the auction advertising.
Turn the knob to the right and look at the small end. You should see a notch you can put a small screwdriver in and push straight towards the shaft to raise a small spring then pull the knob from the shaft.
If you can get hold of a TSM ( Workshop manual ) wiper switch is in the " body " section ( 20-7 ) not in the electrical section where you first look for it.
Hope we can catch up in person sometime.

Got AMX#14 out of the shed for the first time today. Did four mile round the trees in the garden for first drive.
