    Got some vn ends which are the same thread but rack is still a couple of inches short (don’t you hate that), so need to source a tap and die in whatever coarse thread it is. Might be cheaper to get a machine shop to make them if they already have the right tooling.

    Going to roll pin the VS shaft on to the VL one in two places and also get it tigged,

        With the isolation times, surely it's time to learn to tig?

            Looking for less weight, more ground clearance and changing to a better flowing cat

              Don't your old longer vr/s steering arms fit aftermarket vl rack?

              vl & vn/p supposedly shorter than vr/s as holden changed to different suspension & wider guards.
              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.

                Will add a rubber skirt to seal the filter from the wheel house in case (when???) it starts raining oil

                            Ok, got a date to aim for. July 17/18 at Willowbank is going to be Kenda test days. Ex nopics just sent me her roster and I’m kid free. Border is pencilled in for opening on the 10th so, here’s hoping.

                            Got the ARB tigged yesterday and need to get the exhaust finished up and make sure the car comes up on the brake with the new super free flowing cat. If it doesn’t, I’ll need to sort a nitrous setup in the coming weeks

                            So keen!

                              Finished off the exhaust

                              If you’re making your own exhaust, make sure the rubber hangers are oriented this way. This way there is resistance to the exhaust rocking side to side

                                I don't know who would be more excited to see this go down the strip, PF or you.....
