    The fuel tank has been repaired, cleaned and coated in E85 safe stuff. hopefully, the coating does not flake, have heard mixed things but the shop that did it said I should not have problems and fingers crossed the fuel filter catches it all if it does fail. Progress has slowed down due to family life, in the next 3 weeks I should be free again to start getting things done.

    So everything is mounted, I will require some thicker mounts etc. but I can at least dummy up hoses etc. DBW motor Mounted and now just needs linkage about 180mm I think it hard to tell what would be optimum and what will work without hitting anything etc.problems I need to solve are the heater tap mount/new oneextending the driving intermediate shaft 10mm.and fix dint in fuel tank large enough to cause issues with fuel pump/catchment.and put on some pretty bolts etc, and start cleaning it all up. straighten things etc and mount bumpers and so on. the good thing is other than some oil lines and an engine loom the custom side of things has been completed.

    So the water jet place fucked up my order and there has been a delay and I will probably have to do most of them again due to what they used, was wanting to trail fit everything today as I won't be able to get to the car for another two weeks anyway. in the meantime, I took some advice in regards to the 350Z pedal and well used the stock bottom hole and made a new hole up top and this was the final result. pretty good if you ask me, after removing the stock pedal pad and putting the X3 one back on you can hardly notice the difference. i will trim down the new DBW rod so it all sits behind the stock X3 pedal but yeah. really happy with the results. The exhaust was also finished today other than hangers. (shop is out of stock)

    Bit of a slow down, twin 16" thermo did not fit, so have gone one 11" one 16" and will attempt that Bosch DBW Pedal was to large and made it difficult to fit so have purchased a 350z one to see how that will go. all the items I dropped off at the metal guy to cut, he fucked up and I think they're all cut out of stainless. when I wanted mild steel and they did not even do the different thickness etc. so I'm going to have to get everything re-cut in the future but at least I can do the prototyping and make sure they all fit/do hoses etc. its just a waste though of time/effort. Sold the fancy KV8 Emtron ECU and downgraded it to a Motec M130. fewer inputs (still will end up with spares) and no onboard wideband. but for the price, I sold the emtron for I came out $200 ahead after buying the ECU and the Wideband controller.

    Maybe I will bring it to the USA..... Was thinking about shipping my 81 to the states to do drift week and other events, like a driving my own car tour. but back to the topic, i will film a dyno run or a drive-by and tunnel run once it is driveable and use a decent mic setup.

    So a little update. Sourced two discontinued Greddy catch can's, I have purchased stainless tubing and stainless steel wool to make these more effective. started mounting all the odds and ends. vacuum tank and pump Landcruiser washer/overflow setup. this needed one mount shaved off and two holes drilled into the front panel but fit really nice. uses the same plug as standard as well. All the templates made to start mounting everything will be dropping these off to get cut, I'm 90% sure they are all going to work, but we will never know for certain. but here is the vacuum pump/tank mount, heater tap mount, catch can mounts, DBW mount, catch an air filter mounts (plan on remote mounting) and a tow strap mount I have also been told I need to fit EPA Gear, like charcoal canister etc, so fitting one from a VX Commodore, to suit the EFI Fuel pump I have. I feel if I use the complete commodore setup (standard LS1 V8) my little 3L might have more chance of passing. the plan is to install a Fuel pump PMW, Purge solenoid and run E85 to pass the test. and put an airbox over the filters. exhaust is about 70% completed as well, leaving DBW Pedal and Oil filter relocation the last of the things I need to custom mount. and not related to the build, but the Hilux I purchased for my daughter. first, listen to learn, don't buy an electric car that can go faster than you can run. this will do 14kph(8.5mph) she loves it, have since also found out you can mod these to go faster, add brake pedal etc. but she is enjoying car's at the moment so it makes me feel i need to keep the baby seat mount in the X3 so she can come on drives with me lol.

    The first picture I have taken with both the manifold and ITB on together. then some basic pictures of the wheels on, callipers clear with no spacer on the front so very happy about that. The rear sits nice and I hope the camber will bring it into the guards perfect. now looking at the picture, it looks like it hits the coil, but I span them and I don't remember hearing any noise. My fingers are crossed might also worry about what tire i fit. rear big boy's 14X10 for people at home.

    The manifold is complete and all welded up, the exhaust items have arrived, including the mufflers (finally), and the rims have finally arrived after a 6-month wait. Still need to sort out LSD, Thermo Fan's Manifold Exhaust Wheels

    Wheels have left Japan. should be here in the next week or two. mufflers have arrived from the states, I need to buy two reducers and a battery box/tray and a fuse box of some sort and I think that is about it, start mounting everything buying tube/lines to suit I will have to start deciding what to do with the loom if I'm going to attempt it or will I pay someone to do it. part of me is thinking I will do it, as I have two other cars I need to produce looms for so this car would be a good learning experience.

    Not sure what you are talking about mini filters? They are two radium fittings so I can put -AN fittings to a catch can.

    I was thinking about buying a fuel cell that would fit in there because with a 14 x 10 etc, there would be no spare that would suit. I will have to just hope for the best I don't get a flat. I have found a tank but I would still be missing sender etc. so still undecided what I should do. do I attempt to get the stock cluster working or do I just get a digital gauge and leave it at that? Small update the steering shaft is completed with bearing fitted so the slop in steering has been removed. Engine and R154 going in tomorrow. good news is the collector is here Radiator and Shroud have left japan, currently in Melb so will be here next week and stainless flange should be here next week. leaving the car for what I hope is the final stretch. with steering and engine fitted. it will be a case of wiring, getting fuel and brake lines sorted and the serviceable items like brakes a freshen up.
