Kustom Nats ’18, Part II. Phillip Island.

Picture8779

Still sitting at the library typing this up. Well not still, like, it’s been over a week, I would move in here happily though just sayin’. I’ve been a little busy and pre-occupied with organising the course I’m doing this year which may be a surprise to alot of people but it will be cert III in Horticulture. I’ve wanted a job in parks & gardens for so long and seeing as horticulture is the same as the parks & gardens course but receives funding, I decided to bite the bullet and enrol. Never too late right? Well, 28 probably isn’t that old to most either… I don’t know what made me want to go in this direction but I think it’s something to do with how I always used to find myself hanging around the grounds of heritage listed and historic estates such as Werribee Park and Como House etc., that made me decide I think I want to work here and it’s been something which has lingered in my head for a couple of years but I never jumped up to do something about it until now. I also got a new job to work between the studying which fortunately is in a plant nursery so making steps in the right direction I think (don’t worry, content shouldn’t slow down here).

Anyway, with the Saturday of Kustom Nats being wayyy too hot to attend, which is the day I spent here getting Part I of KN18 up, I went for Sunday, which also became a little warm but not too unbearable. Here’s Part II, enjoy.

Opening photo and below: The first car I came across when I stepped down from the bridge into the paddock was this not so kustom gold 911 on polished Fuchs. Still really awesome to see, and unexpected.

I probably should have done some research but this appears to be an imported genuine 60’s built custom F100. Still wearing the Califonian plates.

Just an LS converted Beetle, nothing to see here…. on a serious note, can we stop with the LS swap everything now. I think this guy won anyway.

Above: Proof small things such as mirror placement even, can make a huge difference.

Below: I’ll finish on a finished shot of the Spinner woody, roof chopped and sat back on, only around 2 inches or so removed but it makes a huge difference to the lines.
