one more thing .. is this a 25/30 or just a rb25 .. ?
Thanks a lot dude. Jack and I will be driving it to Melbourne Cruise for Charity so make sure you rock along to that. As my masculinity-impaired friend pointed out, yes, it is a straight RB25. When the car is said and done we'll get some proper studio shots in the work studio and post them up

I've toyed with the idea but dismissed it for a number of reasons. While I do like how pretty they look I don't like the fact that they can reak havoc with panel gaps and bonnet alignment. They also never lift as high as the factory bonnet stay which would **** me while working on the thing. This time around bonnet height wasn't an issue as the motor went in from underneath, however once the underbonnet setup is taken care of a set of gas struts may be on the cards.

Thanks everyone for their feedback and replies, makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside

Axles and spool rocked up today, 4.11s should be here by the end of the week. Thanks heaps jetgm6, can't wait to finish putting it together.

Will post up a few more pics in the coming days. The tail lights are in, the head lights are being refurbished, the plenum should be here by the weekend and the car is getting wired so it'll be as close to a complete car as we can get it. Then it's out of our hands:
*sunroof place for the new leccy sunroof
*trimmers for the headlining and a good steam clean of the trim
*Plazmaman for the intercooler pipes
*Maatouks for the dump pipe and maybe even a tune if we ask Anthony nicely
*Pedders for a complete suspension rebuild

All with two weeks to go

Yeah man you're not wrong, it's the good gear.

Suspension wise we've had all the undercarriage components powdercoated and everything is being replaced. Switching to a coil over front end with adjustable sway bars front and rear. It'll all be new, I'll post up pics of what goes in

I love the dump tip. It doesn't help that it's not hanging right and that it's covered in dirt from paint prep.

Picked up the intake manifold on Friday night, pics up soon

So this is the Plazmaman intake we picked up on Friday night:









And the gorgeous billet throttle body:



Which when mated together and bolted to the motor look something like this:
