So after owning the car for a little over 1.5 years this is the first time I have ever had the doors on it! going through the 2.5 sets of doors I have to find the straightest and least rusty ones, i'll then get them all blasted.

In this pic you can also see I have new front runners, and the passenger side guard is an example of what the car will look like!

And my wife has been playing with a vinyl cutter and also being an artist she has been playing with pics of the car and we came up with this shirt design :)

Mad!
f*#k the thing looks good with the hanging panels. I was wondering how this was getting on.

Shame it's not rego'd. You'd run riot down here chopping people. They'd never suspect the humpy.

thanks for keeping me honest Jonno :)

so I put all the doors on and did some grinding on the bottom of them to see if there was any rust, found a few issues in some of them so still trying to get the best doors picked out.

I made a trans tunnel, mainly cause I wanted to mount the shifter :)

sorted out the adjustable steering arms by getting a bit of hex rod machined up to suit the two different threads and also the adjustable steering arm adaptors that fit the rose joints onto!

its not quite finished but its pretty close, and the parts needed to install the tub were the main ones I focused on.

After I install the fuel system I worked on some retaining clips under the car for the fuel line up to the engine bay, next thing I knew I was plugging the wiring back in and testing it out :)

oh I have missed this cam :)
