    alright alright keep your shirt on...ill put up an update...

    havent been doing alot with it really, engine is sitting at the rebuilders waiting to have the head shaved and cleaned, fitted the coilovers and rear spring setup, picked up a $60 t-series for it that will be getting a rebuild before putting it in

    have mounted the fuel pump like so


    bought a snazzy horn button

    minty fresh engine bay

    hand sanding some cam covers

    test fitting some wheels to check guard size

    cleaned the overflow bottle



    so now you have had your update...

    ok...another update i guess...

    got the motor back from being rebuilt

    made the box look alittle nicer while it was out

    set about putting it back in

    back where it belongs


    started trying to tackle wiring it up...cant say i have even the first clue about what im doing...

    i may end up having to get someone in to finish wiring it up...

    will have to take this thing over regency to get it cleared, so ill just get it mod-plated for the 4age at the same time...BUT...it means i have a boat load of other things i will need to sort out before i can do that, so it may not be on the road this year...

    so i managed to pick myself up a virtually brand new master from a fresh car at u-pull-it lol...$30 instead of $180...will get me through regency and its good enough for now...

    have been making a little bit of head way with the wiring, thanks to a good mate who was kind enough to go and make me some drawings of the wiring from his t18...when i got this car back it was missing atleast half of the engine bay wiring, which has made it difficult...

    still looking around wreckers to try find a t18 to scavenge some bits and pieces that i need...

    hoping to be able to turn the motor over in the next couple of weeks

    still havent finished the wiring on this yet, just going through it bit by bit as the cash comes in

    finally have a dipstick tube, old one went missing somewhere along the lines lol, and picked up an oil cooler sandwich plate from R&D as well, so its slowly coming along

    have a new dash pad coming to replace the munted current one, and going to be redoing the interior completely to suit the clean vibe

    have other priorities at the moment so will have more money and time to spend on it in 2014!
