Hi My next project i want to share is for my 1984 Holden TG Gemini Sedan.. Although built by Holden its all still an Isuzu to me..
This car was purchased in May 09 for $2500 in great condition with no rust or dings and a good factory interior with a Tacho dash.. It came with a fresh 2L EFI motor so all the hard work had been done..

Clear indicators with LEDS
Isuzu Grill Badge
SAAS Race bucket
Jap Steering wheel
New Gear Boot
Early model window winders

Came with the clean SLX Interior , I added the early model winders and hard plastic jap door handles
G200Z 2.0L SOHC with Rodeo EFI fitted
A month or so after i bought it i made up a cold air feed and hit the drags.
Takeoffs were pretty slow without LSD or a welded locker diff .
Best 60 Foot Time: 2.209
Best E/T:16.124 TrapSpeed:80.41kph
Horsepower: Approx 100hp
And then about August '09 i was coming home from work and driving directly into the dusk sun , i was blinded badly and this happened .
So then i sourced a good bonnet,LH guard,Radiator support and some headlights and a grille. Dropped it at a friends panel shop ..
These are the shots from the shop in September 09

Then on December 23rd 2009 i got it back from the shop painted in the factory metallic color and i put it back together.

Next i fitted a Small Odyssey battery to the Boot ..with a nice metal plate ,some sweet Brackets and a battery support.. Solid as
Then i Fitted Front and Rear Whiteline Swaybars before my first Superkhana
.. Rear is a non adjustable 18mm type that is a Straight swap in the same position as standard
.. Front is Adjustable 24mm type ..
..I needed a smaller Oil filter , big one cleared but id be removing part of the swaybar for oil changes .. So went down From The 56 to the 79 i think..
Also got an Entire Superpro bush kitted out thru the whole car
Some Pedders short Sports shocks and some slotted ball joints for increased Camber.
Bought and fit a Heavy duty Torque tube rubber and got my Torque tube sleeve to stop it bending , and fit some thinner spacers under the Tube mount to improve my pinion angle since my car was much lower.
I also fitted a Nolathane adjustable panhard rod and a VK LSD diff center which later died
Got a chinese ebay Alloy radiator and a new aircon condensor and got it all Gassed up..
Then it was my CDT front spoiler that was fitted up ..
Looks ok .. Takes a bit to get used to .
Not long after that i went to the drags on a Wednesday night.. 16.054 was the Best i could get .. LSD hooked up tight all night , with no sighn's of the failure to come in a few months time... Some vids
Smokes up good with the New tyres Pumped up and Dropping it in 2nd
Then i entered my first Superkhana. And yes i was much faster than the Datsun 1600 Vids:

And test fitted my Factory dash undertray.
Tried out my F/glass Kick panels
Then i had another SuperKhana
After the SuperKhana my diff was very noisy to the point were it locked up on the street. Leaving me here

Put a standard Diff back in and finally fit my Valve cover , with Custom nuts and my heater cover
