I see that this shell was in Sydney to be acid dipped.

Is acid dipping now allowed for TCM?

I wondered why they took the shell back to Qld when it came down to Sydney for the acid dipping work to be completed...

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Why would acid dipping not be allowed?

I think Jason needs to sell that car, it's obviously haunted.

Indeed, it's a different issue in TCM where an old car body may be hiding the horrors of shoddy filler work, which can only be uncovered by acid dipping.

Curious that Team Johnson are going to cage an old shell, unlike the flatpack approach used by Oscar "Man of a Thousand Springs" Fioranotto's Supashock to construct the Rusty French TCM Mustang from the floorpan up, to claimed 0.5mm accuracy IIRC... https://autoaction.com.au/2017/12/05...nch-connection [That the as-delivered suspension settings of the wizz-bang Mustang were not drivable, doesn't detract from Supashock's claimed guruship in the area of suspension, naturally ]

The ability to construct a brand new bodyshell would seem reason to stick with Mustang and replace Mustang Sally with a new improved Mustang of tighter tolerances and other enhancements, but Team Johnson seem to instead be siding with fan sentiment instead of strict engineering considerations...
