    Coming together well. Fitted relays for low beam, high beam, driving lights, horn and cooling fan along with fuses into the little box in the bottom right corner.
    Discovered I had a 65A internally regulated alternator, so i stripped out the old reg loom as well as some other plugs for fog lights/different models. Looks clean now.
    Waiting on a few more parts then it'll be ready to start.

    Looking tidy.

    Is that fuse/relay box just one of the generic eBay spec ones, or something fancier/better?

    just a generic ebay one. Had to push all the terminals up slightly to get them on the legs of the relays. But it's ok for a $20 ebay fuse box. There is a small 5 gang blue sea systems busbar mounted underneath to distribute 12v to each fuse. The lights are chalk and cheese now, they're so much brighter!

    It's being collected tomorrow arvo so it can get a tailshaft and a few other other jobs done.
    Then it's going on the rollers for run-in and tune.

    With a bit of luck it'll be pretty much mechanically done by the end of July. It's coming back via a paint shop for a few touch up jobs. Then I'll finish the interior and exterior trims... and drive it

    Brake bias valve is in, gearbox is sorted, rubber brake lines sorted, tailshaft is at hardy spicer. When they've got it back the s/s exhaust will go on.
    Then it's dyno time.

    I'm also keeping my eye out for small case 3.91 gears just in case 4.10 is a bit short. Also another m10 G240 for a spare.

    sweet. Consider me interested!
    I've got 3.45, 3.64 and 4.10 - might as well complete the collection

    If I decide 4.10's are too short I'll fit 3.91's with along with a LSD. If I like 4.10's I'll pull the diff and still fit a LSD.

    Picked up a pair of recaro's for it on the weekend. Need retrimming to match my interior, but the price was right.

    So, got a phone call from the workshop this arvo. One of their mechanics backed into my car
    Right hand front guard is dinged up but nothing is broken. Their insurance will cover it and itís off to visit another PF member to sort the damage.
    Iím pretty disappointed. When I think of how many car parks Iíve backed in and out of, where Iíve driven trucks etc without hitting anyone, how fucking hard is it to negotiate a workshop carpark?

    Iíve spent literally years being careful and avoiding chipping paint.. itís been to 2 workshops and been damaged both times.
    For fucks sake.

    The hilarity continues. Something is borked in the motor. Going to pull the motor and whizz the head off ASAP. Yay
