    Finally got my lathe going so I could machine the hubs down, as the discs i'm using would not fit over the tarago axle.

        This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

            thanks guys :)

            yesterday I got 1 of the control arms lengthened (15mm) and refreshed a little, i use enamel tractor paint as it smooths out nicely and seems to harden too.

              So went and did some thing's, painted all the front wheel wells in POR15 and installed all these bits

              not too happy with the whiteline swaybar as its shaped in a way that it is now sticking out further than the castor rod so the wheel will most likely hit it at full lock....I will just leave it for now and get it modified later. Also doing alot of wiring so not the most exciting to take pics of!

                  Yup,

                  As soon as I pulled it from the packet and lined it up against the old bar I knew there was a problem, but that's ok as we have fulcrum here and they will mod the bar and re-powdercoat it when I'm ready - I got's the connections :)

                      are they new whiteline bars? I was surprised at how agricultural the ones I got second hand 10 years ago were (which looked like your photo), planned but never got around to replacing the S hooks and angle iron links with something with a bit more wank factor. I think the tyre rubbed on the bar on one side, mine had XT130 LCAs and standard everything else, so worth getting sorted if you want lots of lock.

                        yeah brand new from whiteline - the setup is pretty beefy which is good but as usual it's made with the least amount of bends possible which in turn cause's other issues....

                          so its been a while, most of the work that i've done is just boring wiring etc. The fuel tank is now in but no pics sorry, using a new efi jdm copy tank from canada with internal baffles and a modified pickup, running a returnLESS system of sorts where the return line doesnt run the length of the car. I'm running a fuel filter from a X5 BMW with internal fuel reg (50psi static) up next to the tank and a single line to the engine.

                            Also been working on putting the rear brake setup on too, consists of ae86 JDm rear calipers rebuilt (new pistons etc) and MA45 celica supra rear rotors with custom brake caliper mounts on the tarago diff. Had to skim down the back of the pad to get the adjustment spot on so the handbrake will work properly (until they wear down lol)

                                Been struggling with rear wheel fitment as I have a wider diff, the front will take a 15x8 rim easy but to do the same on the back would require me to become a mexican, so I now have fibreglass rear guards ready to go on which means chopping the rear arches...... :(
                                ahwell.......my bodywork sucked anyway! Rear wheel in pick is just for test fitting - IM NOT USING THEM, tyre is a 205/50r15 nankang AR-1.
