Thanks chris240
Back on the panel work making everything fit again.
Just started it up today and the heater inlet pipes had a leak. So out with the dash and heater core to fix the problem. While apart I will replace the short hoses as well.
Dont want to take this out again.

Spent a bit of time pimping up the dash lights with smd led globe's, and some lighting under the dash when the curtsey light comes on triggered from the door button and powered from the cigarette lighter socket.

If you guys are doing a engine swap and need to change your fuel system to efi and surge tank try this.
I drilled a 25mm hole in the bottom of the tank then built a tin dish to suit the profile of the tank  installed a fuel pick up and drain plug in it then tig welded it on.
I also used the fuel tank liner kit resin type to seal any pin holes in it. The returne line is the stock one and the original fuel feed line has been capped off.
By doing this it keeps every thing standard in the car. And the serge tank is about 2 litres.

Hi Scott,
That's coming up awesome. I would be very interested in having a look and a chat to you one day.

I've just finished and installed my electric power steering column and what a difference. So many things I want to do....lol

Keep up the good work.

Justin

Spent today in the shed modifying the rear spoiler to take the new twin 3" exhaust system. I used alloy nutserts to hold it on to the car body this time instead of the self tappers used 20 years ago. A small skim of bog on a few parts before the high fill primer.
Another step closer.

Finished the guards today all primed up ready for paint.
I really like the fluted look, just breaks up the front end a bit.
They are a patch panel available from rare spares to suit a HJ, HZ Monaro.
If you are thinking if doing this expect to spend at least 4 days per guard to get them right. The welding process really makes the guard warp and twist. But the final result is very cool. I will post a few more pics soon as colour is on the way.

Finally finished sanding and today was paint time.
4 coats of base red
3 coats of metalic red
7 coats of candy
4 coats of clear
And this only tool 11 hours to do.
The next car I paint will be flat white.

It is all worth the effort the finished results are awesome. This red at certain angles is near black and other angles it sparkling red is so bright.
