    Pictures are going to slow down a little from here.

    Today dropped the engine off at a builder. All the big rotary workshops I wonder how they stat in business, never answer phones or can never get a quote out?

    So I found a smaller outfit that has experience.

    Gonna get it dowled, and the oil galleries opened up etc.

    will be back in a month or 2. Until then all interior work is needed.

        I always assumed most specialist workshops were fronts for drug opperations given how lax they can be with actually getting back to potential customers. It's not as if we have 30million people in Australia all wanting to build race cars...

          Looks cool. Hopefully I can bring this up to a really nice standard. Nice bodied ones are getting hard to find.

            I have no idea. Maybe they make money when people come in with 100k to drop into a car? Small work like engine rebuilds seem unappealing?

              Did a couple of things

              Found an S5 waterpump housing.


              Dirty grey carpet is out. Gotta get in there and give it a full clean.


              Heater core is out and getting a new one made. Now is a good time since its a huge pain to do later.

                Yeah, so a front for drug operations when Habib walks in and drops 100k on his $13k car. :p

                  Slow progress now.

                  Got the black JDM dash out.




                  Small amount of damage it has to get fixed on it. for its age, I don't think it is too bad.







                  New rotor housings! Figured I might as well spend some coin on new pair of housings. No point doing a ton of work on old ones. Poor man pays twice.


                  They look like S5 ones, the motor is pretty much spec'd to an S5 level now. Only the rear plate is still S4, which is probably the worst part of the S4 motor LOL
