I just might have to take you up on the Nutsuert offer Zedman. I just can't justify the amount of money to buy one, just to use it once. I'll Pm you.
Sulio, I have just chased Craig for it, so I should have it in the next week. I have been busy as a really busy thing.

So out came the drill bitt attachment for wire brushes, some Satin Black Rustguard paint and on it went. I am going to do about 3 layers in the boot and 4 or 5 in the foot wells just cos they get used more.
Here are the results:
It makes the rest of the interior look shit though Meh, its gonna be raced, not shown off.

So for the last 1 1/2 weeks my girl has been sitting at Carco exhaust centre in Belconnen being rewired with an Autronic SM4 computer, new gauges, new computer controlled boost controller, new front air intake (in front bonnet area) and a new 2 stage 12 volt windscreen demister (removed airbox and that crap). A few other small mods aswell.
I will be picking it up on Friday, exactly to the day when I was told it would be finished, this is the first time I have taken my car anywhere in Canberra for a something major that the person has kept their word and even kept to my budget with still great quality and professionalism. So I highly recommend Russell and the crew at Carco Exhaust centre in Belconnen (Carco centre).
I will take a whole heap of pics and post them when I get it back and I may even make the car meet on Friday arvo.

Ok, so after all the problems I was having with my wiring setup, I decided to bite the bullet and get it rewired with a few other mods done to improve the whole setup. I gave the man my budget and he worked to it, getting all major things done and anything that would have cost more to take me over the budget and that I was capable of doing myself he left to me (exactly what I asked him to do).
So the pics and titles will explain what has and will be done:
So here is the main item, the Autronic SM4 wired in:
Here you can see the new Autometer gages and VDO speedo and tacho installed:
The blank area where the heater unit used to be will be replaced with a panel containing a battery isolator and a switch to turn on the 12V 2 stage heater i will install (plus any other items i decide to add later). Note the red cable for the isolator:
The oil cooler was properly mounted:
Here you can see new intercooler piping and a pipe underneath the cooler pipe that has moved the airfilter from behind the radiator to infront of it:
I am amased at how much room is under the dash once the heater unit is pulled out, crazy. I call it the "boot" now.
I'm very happy with the work and the fact Russell was willing to listen and do as I asked or offer better advice. I couldn't recommend them enough.

They were fixed using a fibreglass compund or something like that, the guy did an awesome job, even smoothed the sharp edge running along the centre to make the top of the flare easier to mount flush.
This is why flares are needed :

That Russell chap from cargo seems to be one rare breed these days. good to know there are people out there that love their job and not there to make a quick buck and rip customers off like most do.
Also having someone listen to what you want done and how is very rare.
