Progress

Well, rear brakes done, new shocks at th back and the new Tailshaft fitted. Took her for a spin and much improved :-) No longer vibrates at 45-50 mph or when backing off from 60. Still a trace of vibration at speed but this feels more like its coming frm the engine, not the transmission like it was. Back end feels lovely and firm now with new springs and shocks.

Tomorrow will be wiring in the power amp and speaker to run the iPhone from then will be flushing the cooling system and refilling with green coolant (currently running brown sludgy water!). Getting there!!

Torana

Hey, just wondering what is the largest possible wheel/tyre width able to fit under the rear wheel arches of a stock LX SL Torana (i.e. no flares and standard suspension) without rubbing. I am willing to fold back the inner guard lips to allow extra clearance by the way. I have 14x7 HQ-pattern Penuts up front and they just clear without rubbing, however it is lowered at the front. I simply need this info to get the best stance I can possibly get without butchering my guards to fit big 10 or 11" rubber under the back. Cheers.

back together,,,, kind of....

The ute is back in one piece to make sure all the gaps are correct and the body lines match. All I have to get right now is the nose cone.
Once its all checked its back apart for paint. The only body mod to finish is the enclosure into the tray for the cab extension as we cut the back wall outof the cab for extra storage and some stereo gear and I also need to make access for the main wiring loom as the hole was welded up on the factory one.
Im still up in the air on what to do for a tray cover, Im thinking one of those top fit tonneau covers or some kind of hard deck lid.

New Year's Eve?

So what are youse doing, to see in Twenty-Thirteeen?

I've long been over Fortitude Valley for N.Y.E., due to the influx of bimbo's and idiots, so I'm off to a pub out in the 'burbs.

With some blokes and chicks I know, I'll be see a bunch of dirty bands, including the guys at top of post...
Not just guys, but legends.
No - icons!
No... HEROES of what is best termed Yob Rock.... Cosmic Psychos.

FS panevan project

Anyone want a panelvan project? Pic above is how the van looked about 7 years ago, and the attachments show what it is like now. I had been intending to do quite a restoration job on it, but it is becoming plainly obvious that I will never get the time to even start the project. Was my daily driver up until about 4 years ago, and has been sitting ever since, and the longer it sits, the less of it there will be...
