    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.

    Project IBIS.... AKA the bin chicken JZX81

    Forgot to add, there is also progress in the 4P ABS Sensor retrofit. just waiting for some parts to land and I will trail fit but im pretty confident I have worked it all out using off the shelf Toyota parts.

    Project IBIS.... AKA the bin chicken JZX81

    Slowly progressing. this has been slow more due to the waiting of parts and getting other things sorted. first, I had the rear 1/4s fitted some time ago but have not finished off the fitment due to needing my doors, did not have the doors as I was busy moulding them to make lightweight doors for my other project 81. (buildthreadcomingsoon.exe) now that is done I will fit the door's and clean up the 1/4s for perfect fitment. other hold-ups have been in regards to working with Chromoly for my rear arms. but what i now have is my PGS dogbox, stockworks coil overs, my custom 40mm RCAs (prototype in the picture) and a lot of loose ends to fix up. rear 1/4 and 30+ mm wider flare FPR Door. PGS Dog gearset Shockworks coils and the R&D going into the suspension the arms are probably overkilled, and I will prob not end up selling any but if im putting my name to it, I would rather have it the best quality I can. this does not mean I might not bring out a lesser quality version under another brand. the RCA's had been spot on, but i was stupid for getting the prototypes made in what i wanted the finished product to be in as essentially this will not get used and are pure to test fitment etc. but lesson learnedt.

    Small update. Rear strut bushes changed and fixed to suit. the rear end now in. found out driver wheel bearing is seized, axles boots need replacing and as you can see the axles look to be on the upward angle at strut full highet nothing dramatic and hopefully raising the diff mount will correct this issue. has superpro make me a ISO diff bush had issues with the front end, first being LCA's being a lot longer than i needed but the main issue was ball joints being stuffed and unable to bolt coils/knuckles in etc. caster arm are about 100mm too short so need to fabricate. but what shitted me the most was using mate for fabrication. awesome guy etc but I wanted the front end to be able to bolt in AE86 stuff and have no issues, instead, he made the AE86 stuff fit the X3 witch meant drilling some very expensive Cusco items. it's done now, just annoying and why I will prob not go this route with other cars. So what is left? well remove it all, paint it all including the body and get what I need to be rebuilt. so it will be finished rolling/steering wise. the only major concern after this is the steering shaft and extractors everything else is essentially off the shelf and little fabrication items. oh and wheels to suit. with a daughter, it has been really hard as after 7 pm im bugged and my weekends are spent with my daughter doing things. so i do regret not taking advantage of doing things before baby. but I will make it work.

    Was probably me on X3 group. pretty much any motorbike one is good. the R1 came in two styles one like the ducati and one like this. the below link is my fav due to size/style. very simple https://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-2001-Yamaha-R1-Fuel-Smog-Evap-Charcoal-Emissions-Canister-OEM-/372752335737

    I will be running an S13 fuel tank. been advised it fits with the lengthening of one strap. but i have been advised a lot of things fit. i have not looked into much of the stuff i may or may not need for engineering was just going to build it how i want then add what i need for our EPA. witch should be catalytic convertor, muffler etc to keep it under 90db, password on ECU. Exhaust 5mm away from the steering column. and nothing much more as i have not gone nuts cutting up chassis etc. if i was going to go and put a evap canister in i would prob use a motorbike one like the ducati one due to the size etc. i could tuck it in a nice spot and have it look semi neat.

    well, i got ITB all working well. took a bit of work a couple of extra parts etc but its setup and does not fowl anything like it did before. DBW just needs to be mounted and chuck on a couple more sensors and shes good to go ITB < Link to video, unsure if it will work due to being off Facebook.

    I wanted spares for my other car. majority of the sensors, coil packs etc are overkill for this engine. but if something fail's on my other two car's at least I have emergency parts for trouble shooting or to get me out of a bind. there is no other reason behind it.

    No real updates, EFI Hardware is shitting me, ITB linkages hit coolant/heater pipe. so i need to redesign how the linkages work and EFI Hardware won't communicate back. for something, they advertise as bolt-on it hardly works. its summertime here, and with newborn/Christmas and NYE holidays i have not looked at the car, i have been designing rear arms for the X8. I'm currently bidding on some tension rods for the X3 though. so if i win them i will start working on the X3 again but yeah overall, this ITB kit has really been a kick in the nuts and i regret buying EFI's kit due to the lack of help once i walk out the door.

    No real update, been waiting on items to arrive and also designing new shit. Custom rear arms are coming along nicely. expensive but nice with a mix of Titanium, good FK bearing Heim's joints, MERICCAAA just awaiting for Chromoly to arrive Knuckles are sorted, doing my own LCA V2's. the tension rod is in the air, do I just mod AE86 to fit to get me on the road or do i continue on designing? I have to say the size and lack of slop in the FK Hiems vs XM ones. fucking crazy. looking forward to seeing how this whole setup will work. still stuck on the rear driveshafts though.

    Current working's X8 Knuckles

    Pretty sure there clipped in there like his others and universal item. but will double-check Also the same thought, I was going to stick with stock arms extended and just average knuckles with akerman. but now thinking i might just go there and be done with it. as to be honest i CBF developing new front tension rods to use stock items LOL.
