    sorry hazz not selling the ma's.

    pics:
    the day after i bought it in 4wd spec





    so i drove it to work with only the rear lowered and the night before i took off the left rear wheel. way too late i found out that the shanks were bigger than the studs and became loose. only the lock nut was keeping all four wheels on and i simply double hit the nuts with a rattle gun and tention the rest. not having a gun the lock nut was a bit loose. this was the result.



    anyway with a bit of messing around we got the right shanks on.

    spent sunday doing the whole front end.

    yeah its regoed now so ill be driving it through the hills and on cruises but its a bitchen car to drive as a daily so itll be a hills/ track car.

    ajps: the the gear i got did the trick, just needs an alignment like a hole in the head.

    atm im running 3 rack end spacers and a slip on, extra lock rack ends onto t3 tie rods and knuckles. its strange but i think the castors just horribly wrong cos when i steer if i let go of the wheel itll keep turning the corner lol. managed to do a few laps of the block in the rain, was good fun and games. very precarious through twisties though.

    the jist of the car is (if you havent seen my old parts lists):
    8kg ajps coilovers with kyb inserts
    6ks rears with boge shocks
    t3 castor rods
    sigma lcas
    strut brace
    half cage
    14x7 watas

    and the engine has a few goodies:
    oil cooler
    oil catch
    home made extractors onto 2 inch through 2 mufflers (1 is to become a hotdog)
    earthing kit
    tvis 4age
    adm box (choking on life)
    1 piece tailshaft
    s series tig welded diff 4.77

    short term plan is to flare guards
    long term is to rebuild the engine with some lovlies in it.

    tell me what you think
