Painted the car but still need to paint the side skirts and front flairs. should be done in the next week. Also got my big ass wing mounted!!!

So once thats done I just need to do a bit of drivetrain work and start to finish the car off :)

that looks tough ash, specially the picture from the front!

i like how you ran the FMIC piping through the fenders! one advantage of not having to register it i assume?!? or it didn't require that much cutting?

Hi Evan

Yer had to cut out were the bumper would usually mount to get the pipes through. Also You loose a bit of steering lock as the pipes come up through the wheel wells. Ok for race car but not so good on a street car :)

Hopfully completed soon Lurch!!! 

Just lots of small things to finish off now. Hopfully will take it for a run around the court in the next few weeks :)

Im trying to chase up a second set of wheels so I can mount up my treaded tyres and maybe run it on CH plates for a cruse or two to iron out the bugs. Will have to jack up the suspension a bit and make up a removeable loom for the indicators and stuff :)

Maybe I can have it ready for the Apollo bay cruise!

Ok quick update

Got the turbo box in and sent the tailshaft off to be shortened. Hoping to weld up gearbox mount and fit it this weekend. Got all my guages fitted and working in the car. Starts with the push of the button :)

Got to send the wheels off to get the road tyres fitted soon and by then should have the tailshaft back and be able to put it on the ground and finish of all the little things. Then its just getting the club reg and going for a cruise :)

Cor ! That is a sweetie. If you see a fat man camping out on your grass with a camera and a faded "datsuns forever" tshirt that is just me stalking your car. Dont call the cops.

THe CF bonnet sets the car off perfectly. I will be interested to hear some times in the near future.

Car has had a few test runs around the block.

I think the thrust bearing on the clutch has gone  (should have put in a new one :( ) so looks like the gearbox is coming out again!

Anyway here is a pick on the street
