    Started the TR Astra rear disc brake conversion, using a spare rear beam so I can swap it over quickly after it's ready, because the car is my semi-daily driver. Bonus is that the new one cost bugger all and included a thicker rear swaybar being from a GSi.

    Made an alignment tool for the new stub axle mounts.



    Modifying the plate mount to suit the different shape.







    Got the tops of both welded, and one side of the left side, then I ran out of argon, dammit

    as short as possible

      Fully welded the things. Re-welded the handbrake guides on at an angle because the handbrake cable points up a bit now. Need to shorten the handbrake cable.







      Painted the roof because I hadn't done it yet, and it had a few dents from some bogan walking over it. There was also a rust hole on the edge of one of the gutters which wasn't going to get any better so that spurred me on to do the whole job at once. Deleted the antenna too, because I can't remember the last time I listened to the radio.
      Did it the same metallic grey as the bumpers just because I thought it might look ok. Painted the gutter strips the same colour will re-install them soon.

        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.

              reinforce the shock mounts on the beam, they have a habit of breaking off.

                I also wanted some more practice with metallic. Going to try doing a whole car metallic blue next.

                Sloth just welding it better should do?

                I will probably get the plates remade in black or red at some point.

                        Nah, he's going to build a panelvan out of them.
                        "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                                So that happened.

                                19.348@70.6mph
                                19.3@69.64mph
                                19.477@68.16mph
                                19.616@67.8mph

                                Did a 0.009s reaction on the 3rd run and won $100 for 3rd place in the reaction time competition.

                                Cusscuss's Supra ran a 12 and blew some kind of oil seal.
