Well I've finally bitten the bullet and started this project...
So last May I had a little bingle in my VS ute, and couldn't be stuffed fixing it, but always had in my mind that I'd like to rally it, just had to get around to it...
So over the last few weeks I've been doing a little bit of motivating myself, by reading up on stuff, and perving at pp's build photos..
So I picked up a set of 15 inch alloys from my mate Brendan for 250 bucks with decent tyres for doing skids..
So last weekend I did a bit of panel beating so the front guard almost fits on it fine again.
yesterday I wacked a new battery in it and changed the coolant, and engine oil. Fired 1st go, and and did a nice big oversteery burnout down the street...
Last night I won this on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....m=180295399805
once i cash in the rego + CTP on the white car, I reckon it will have cost me maybe 200 bucks tops.. I'll then strip it of all the panels, motor, diff, wiring loom, seats etc, and bung the bits I don't want on ebay or give them to Lawrence at Speeds, in exchange for stuff I do need, and wave by by to the shell.
Todays jobs are : remove tow bar from ute, do some futher work on the front guard.
Before November the 18th I'll make an aluminium alloy sump guard and take it in a khanacross to work out what it's like on dirt, and then work the suspension out from there!
