hi

got some more stuff done this week end pulled fuse box in side car and grinded off the brackets hope to remove batt box this week

dropping car off next week end to have the spear wheel well cut out where it starts to curve after first step down and flat plate welded in so batt will sit flat and will look heaps better underneath
while it is there i hope to get all the pipe and bends for dump pipe and cooler pipes ordered and started to be made up

hope to be turbo for new years

will post up pics soon

its a universal kit off ebay finger crossed it works OK looks the goods.
i have bought a tridon thermo fan sensor for switching fans on and off instead of using Dave's crag type just have to get the guys at work to weld a tread to radiator to screw it in

old girl is back and starting to get back in to it as have bought a smashed vl as a parts car so I can move on with my build.

buying some tig leads next week so I can weld and make my cooler pipes and change my turbo man a bit so new w/g will fit.

will take some pics as soon as I make some more progress ATM I have only removed air on from under dash as I will not be using it

as well as pulling motor loom out to be hidden. but no a 100% where to cut hole in fire wall thinking behind head.

Nice build. Quick question, where did you put those relays on the drivers side and is all the wiring the original wiring just moved or did you have to re wire alot?
