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!

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 :)
