    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.

    The fact I will be running 14x8 and 14x10 on the fucker, I'm just not going to have a spare and accept a tow home. I have thought I might put the battery etc., in there. This way, I can keep a full boot empty and everything under a false floor.

    So a minor update, Due to time and getting over the car sitting there, I sent the car to 21Fabrications. Rear-end is now in, straight. We ended up just welding in the cross member instead of having it bolt in like stock due to only needing the diff bush to be held into place. Essentially a cross between X6/X7 Cressida's. However, mostly tack welded to make sure the engineer will be 100% happy with the plan before 100% welding it in. I have also added some tiny braces to the camber adjusters. The rack has been moved forward 20mm. However, as you noticed, the steering rack is sitting a little upright. However, this might not be a problem, but we will not know until we finish removing the slop out of the steering column/shaft. Caster mounts and arms are now in place. Other problems that have been run into are the S13 fuel tank simply too big for a low car. 100% will work if you sit at average ride height and like that Torana/VN drop tank look. So options are fuel cell, custom tank or find a stock tank and convert it to EFI. So this is all the work that happened after I dropped the car off Friday at lunchtime. So pleased progress is happening. A little disappointed I have not been able to work on it as much as I hopped. What's next? Install the engine and transmission. So what are we waiting for? The bearing for the steering shaft, Radiator and thermo's to arrive. Stainless exhaust manifold flange to be cut. 6-1 merge collector to arrive. What I need to sort out, Custom muffler for the rear of the car, want dual 2 inches in/outlets with round muffler so classic Japanese 240z style however there about 100mm too long so custom it is. I also need to work out whether I put in a hotdog or another muffler to pass engineering. a person I know passed with the same engineer on one muffler, one hotdog setup. But he had no extractors. So feeling I might be close to the limit.

    HAHA, The one where the guy asks, read my other posts (cheapest upgrade possible with no adapters) then asks about dual calliper. always happens though, like the guy on that thread. i have the setup its great..... then everyone starts writing about pad issues then he chimes in i have pad issues to. its like MAN you just told everyone they are great and now your telling everyone you had issues and replaced a key item. i did BS a bit in the thread though, and posted pictures of cars in there prime not current state lol

    i was going to do the whole internal side to start with allowing for window to be added, but then thought anyone going composite doors is not going to be going normal windows, the reason I did it this way was I'm just going to mirror tint where the window would be and leave it at that. but some people would like to put clear lexan/polycarb and this way they could trim the window and use it as a frame to rivit on the lexan/polycarb.

    Yeah, while Australia was pretty good with COVID, we had to be isolated to the baby ward. im lucky and I have private health cover for my family so it was like a holiday stay. but stupid me did not understand/register when i was packing clothes i just packed clothes to suit people coming to see the baby, not the consent 36c degrees or what ever it was and no clothes to sleep in or wear other than jeans and tee's been good after though, even though we had to wear masks etc and was locked down to a 5km radius for the start. i have done my best to show her more then just the house. also helps living on 32 acers.

    Yeah, my daughter was born almost 11 months ago to the day, so she is a COVID baby, and was born during lockdown here in Australia.
