Took the car out the shed and into the backyard today to finish a few more things off and give it a wash... 95% of the way there now. Also put the factory calais badges back on the guards... pretty happy with them there

Hired a trailer today and took the car down to MV Automatics to get the auto trans looked over and a few bits finished off on that. Also took it down to Norwood Auto Services to get the brakes looked over and all the adjustable suspension gear set up. Just needs a tune now and the bumpers repained from it sitting around for a while and I can take it out!

Car made 251.3 KW at the wheels at 15 PSI on Saturday (37 degrees here in Adelaide) and the big stally was slipping like a b!tch. Car feels very strong on the road and is very responsive so I am happy (for now ) Few odds and ends to tidy up now and I will post some more pics up soon!

This thing is incredible in person. Credit to you and the time/effort you have put into it. The attention to detail is spot on.

Fitted them up to the car on the weekend, all went very smoothly. I just need to bleed them now and then take them for a test drive. Once I put the wheels back on I will put some pics up of them behind the wheels in actual day light.

Pulled the old girl out to give her a bath and get all the dust off it before the cover goes on for the winter now the rego has run out. Took a few quick pics before it rained and took a few close ups of the new stoppers... pretty happy with how they look on the car!

Registered and took the car out for the first time of the summer on the weekend for cruise for charity. Managed to win a trophy for "best interior" which was totally unexpected. Anyways here are a few snaps that were taken
