    Cheers Sven. Might get pics of it being stock next week for you when the alternator arrives from Darwin.

    Depends on my lazy arse and money haha

    Done . . .

    - Ordered alternator from Darwin
    - Sanded back and painted inner guards
    - H - pattern gear knob
    - Standard steering wheel
    - Bushes (LCA, trailing arm and castor rod)
    - 14" stockies with new Bridgestones
    - Import papers
    - Remove aircon
    - Inner guard plastics
    - Brake line clips
    - Remove rear seats and stereo system

    To do . . .

    - Exhaust system
    - Fix the rust
    - Send it to Fours n More for . . . big tune, engine leaks, ramflo air filters with breather etc
    - Wheel alignment
    - New front seat belts

    Should have the exhaust system and seat belts done next week, after that it should be going to Fours n More.

    Once its all done though, should be pretty mint to drive

    Should put a big thanks out to Dave from AJPS for helping me out so far and Javal for checking it all out for me

    I think they call this 'commitment'. It's good to have a few committed enthusiasts around. I'm proud to be one myself, everyone always says i should be committed .
    You can have any brew you want... as long as it's a Datsun / Corolla / What is that?

    I'm still waiting for you to find more time for the Corona! Wouldn't mind having the 18RG and 2TG side by side, two old school twin cam Toyota motors together to annoy the 4AGE club

    Got some more jack stands and a hydrualic jack today to do some work under the car. Will have to wait till I have a free moment though

    Also booked a car trailer to get the exhaust done next Wednesday. Going 2" for now to keep things quiet, but will be upgraded when I do the engine work later on.

    And I got a call saying the 80amp alternator should be here next Wednesday, so thats another thing off the list.

    Also got the seatbelts out, ready for Wilshire Trimmers to make new ones.

    There goes another grand

    Cheers Fusion
