Wow, things are looking good.
Scott is the young chap working on the car currently, and he is doing a great job.
Its more fabrication now, not exactly smash repair.
The list of work still needed to be done has been agressively dealt to over several days.
Keep it up Scott.
Aluminium Mirror backing plates so they dont disappear first squeeze of the pedal.
You can wind up the spring tension to keep them holding on tighter.
Exhaust cut out looks spot on. Plenty of room for heat sheilding, perhaps a bigger exhaust later if needed.
Some intrusion into the passenger cabin space, thats fine.
Handbrake mount welded in.
Underside connection needs attention, was setup for the existing setup. Shorten the cable and modify the mount will sort this.
Little bits n peices sorted out, fill holes, cover old mistakes etc. Filled the bolt holes to the old bolt in cage that I bought of Mike, I still have this chromed half cage at home if anyone wants it. Dont want much for it. Its certed and looked great in the car.
Ruddy beutiful floor supports kind of more like frame rails from firewall to the existing rear diff mount. 1.6mm steel folded from sheet.
The frame protrudes into the cabin by maybe 5mm, and lower under the car by 30mm more then the old bits, which were more sad than that that vampire Robert Patinson.
Nothing better than this in the boot, RB26 block and a bottle of NOS.
Block $50 on auction site, a dummy block for fitting purposes, since it has some rather viscious damage to bores on several cylinders.
Chuck the GTR box onto the dummy block and we have our fitting kit ready to go in.
At this stage I will fit this kit in, but continue to complete the car in RWD format first. Probably.
Im dubious of the front frame rails being any good, actually, they are rubbish. One area under around the front crossmember is crushed somewhat. Better sort this now. To be made from 1.6mm sheet steel. We can make sure they will be level each side, making the cross member, suspension pickup[ point nice and level.
old rubbish coming out of the car; the magazine is for the vampire mad misses. I still dont get it, really.
Im feeling the love here, this is almost ready for colour.
Im hoping to get the car out from here in about 10 days or less, with current progress, this looks likely.
Its only been here for coming up a couple of YEARS.............
Most likely watchers will die of old age before these wheels ever turn
