  1. Port lid for the new surge tank done now to build the guts of it next week all
  2. When necessity is the mother of invention Core of the tank is now complete and now to move onto all the ancillary pipes and fittings
  3. Been a few weeks, unfortunately illness and waiting for John Lange to finish the custom rear control arms have slowed me down So moved onto the rear fuel tank fabrication, using the LPG donut tank as the basis First was chopping 65mm out of the height through the centre aa well as removing the center tube section Then it was a matter of fabricating a centre rise section to clear the spare wheel well hump With the modifications, I’ve worked out it should be between 58-60 litres plus another 8-10 in the additional surge tank All in all so far a perfect fit See you all next week
  4. Mine is a 75 coupe and was originally this colour
  5. Rear gearbox mount almost done, just need to fix the height position and fab some outriggers to the cradle lots of room for the twin exhaust and will tuck inside the tunnel snd of course start of the obligatory smoothing of some weld areas and metal finishing due to my OCD
  6. Some movement today finished up the lower torsion rod mounting points incasing the cavities with pipe sections along with closing off the cradle rails at the rear. Removed the temporary cross brace and now I’m ready to trial mount the motor and box so as to configure the revised gear box mount hopefully next weekend Cheers john
  7. P.S. I think I’ve found a new way to prep a car for paint, total rust, dirt and paint removal with no consumables, no heat distortion, no metal damage, no fall out clean up and it gets into every visible space Im making enquirers at the moment https://laserking.com.au/news/
  8. Hi Jeff Yes, that cradle will carry the motor, trans, front suspension, steering rack and headers down to the merge section as a complete unit meaning it can be raised into the bay or the body lowered onto it
  9. Been past 2 weeks but made some progress today Chassis reconfiguration is now flush with the new rails Gearbox rear mount is next up
  10. This relationship is getting complicated I cut away half of the rear chassis today, reconfigured it so all is flush with the new rails. A flat bottomed car is now a real posibility but of course ran out of gas sgain Till next week
  11. Great work, car looks sensational congrats
  12. Can’t keep up with you Jeff’s lol each if you are powering on at break neck speed but with such great detail !
