Now that the body is almost painted i need to think about getting the motor ready to fit.
while i have the engine on the engine stand i will replace all the gaskets and seals as well as the cam belt and water pump. and give the engine a general clean up.
I have most things that i need to get the rb20 in and running but one thing i need is a fuel delivery system. I recently purchased a surge tank but i still need the lift pump and main pump. I will probably use a vl turbo for the main pump but i am on sure what pump i will use for the lift pump.

I fit some old second hand rubber to my rims for now so i can fit up my willwood brakes. unfortunatly they would not fit in side the 14 inch rims and i still need to be able to roll it around. I will put some new tyres on when it gets closer to putting it on the road. These tyres are 235/45x17 all around but i will more than likely run 245 when the time comes.

I am going to wait till i have it all together before i go getting rid of any parts as i might still need it. Plus i am from australia so the harness may be different because mine is right hand drive

Thanx man. 5 years on the body work. It would want to look smooth :)

I checked out your build thred. Yours looks cool man. You will get there. Atlest you can drive yours with out being worried about damaging or scratching it. I have been building mine for 8 years now. I have forgotten what it was like to drive.

this week i have been working on getting the brakes fitted up. the fronts were easy as they came in a kit. but the rears are from an r31 skyline and i had to do some work to make them fit, Next week I will be fitting up the brake lines and hand brake cables and hopefully it will be able to stop when i roll it down my drive way :D I will be rebuilding the rear brakes before the car goes on the road. ;)

Awesome work, that lime is the best colour for S30s IMHO.

Regarding the rear brakes...honestly...Aussie R31 rear calipers are garbage. I would have stuck with the drums, at least you'd have a functional handbrake and they wouldn't seize.

i need rear disks to get it past for rego with the rb20 in it. I will be upgrading to willwoods for the rear a bit later, I have already hooked the hand brake up and it works fine :tu:
