    Ever thought of doing this stuff as a business? You obviously enjoy it as much as the actual driving (if not more from what I can see), and you do it quickly so you're already better off than 99% of workshops out there. You could just take on one project at a time, given you don't seem like you need (the money) to over promise like others do.

    Nah, not interested in that at all. That rear section of the exhaust took more than 8 hours of anger, frustration and violence to do. Today, Iím laid up with back pain and tomorrow will probably be the same. Iíd much rather buy an 8 second street car but everytime I do, I hate the fact that I didnít build it haha

    Fair call. A shame (for consumers) because you're obviously good at it and there aren't many workshops that do a build in under 2 years.

    Well, Iím out of action for a week with a strained muscle in my back

    For those doing exhausts at home I highly recommend going he below path as opposed to the bolt on hot rod style hanger. Set up properly, itís undo the v band and it it just slips off. I did the bolt on style with the S14 and itís a pita to remove and replace

    Also highly recommend one of these for general fabrication

    Falcon Highway Patrol cars ran a pair of those exact ones for the auxiliary battery in the boot. One in the engine bay on the fusebox lid and one in the boot next to the battery. They were fitted in the main charge cable from front to back.

    I tried one of the Jaycar ones and the fucken thing kept on tripping when the fans switched on. Not sure if it was just a faulty jigger or what, but where are most acquiring these breakers from?

    As the Falcon was phased out from HWY we had buckets full of the fucking things. They removed them before sending the cars to auction along with the full auxiliary battery setups, pallet loads of yellow top Optima batteries were just lying around.

    Thanks mate.

    Tailshaft in and fits. Need to shim the trans mount down 10mm for alignment. Spent most of the day making little mounts and neatening everything up.

    Received my eBay spiral sockets and got the wheels off. Theyíre 22kg each. Pro star fronts with tyres will save about 18kg. Rears will be a push

    Was hoping for chaser front runners & 15x7 rears.

    Looks like it's in decent condition last pic.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Mine aren't really that heavy. Even 15x7s with 28x9 pro bracket radials, surprisingly
