So nobody likes my phots huh


I was bored on saturday so i polished up my rocker cover.

Its not bad! Spent a few solid hours on it. Has a few lines in it, buy you can definatly see yourself in it! I might give it a bit more of a go with some 2000 and polish the sh*t out of it another day

Finally up to 2000. Stated at 400 and went all the way up.


I knew it was a good sign when i could see myself when i started polishing



Im going to make my engine bay nice and neat. My cooler piping is highly polished so i did the rocker the same to suit.
Ive got my Brightline heat shield aswell.

While the motors out the bay will get a blow over because its shagged at the moment, over spray and surface rust.

Made some progress on my guages...
The Autometer oil sender is a different thread to the RB30 block.
Pirtek made me up a piece which allows me to use the Autometer oil sender, and retain the factory one so my dash will still work.. Cost like $12 in fittings!



Copied this pic from above. Going to plumb this into my radiator hose and screw the temp sender into this. True reading and retain factory temp gauge.

Wired up...



I tapped into the air-con light and got power from the cigarette lighter

Gotta drill a hole in the sunglass holder to run the wires/boost line through the car in the next few days and theyll be dialed in



Got a shopping list for my build motor...
-TX1 cam/Camtech stage 2
-HD springs
-ARP studs
-Nissan HG
-Head reco
-T3 hi flow kit (got lined up off a mate)
-Fuel pumps and fuel reg
Plus other stuff ive forgotten.....

Hmm so whats new..
Pulled my head aprt and got my cam out so it can be sent off to Wade to have a stage 2 818 re-grind on it.

My head deck started flick on and off, so i thought of it a good excuse to take the dash apart and re wire it all properly.
When i got in there, there was about 4 different pieces of wire joined together of previous installs and god knows what, so i ripped it all out and ran new wire, plus a new earth point. I dont even know where the factory earth point is and dont trust it..





I was also feeling a bit energetic so i polished up the face of my plenum



Not sure what to do with the rest of it? Paint? Or just hit it with a wire brush and clean it up

Just leave the plenum. Do up a turbo one and put that in when you do the turbo conversion! Go for the original look

Just for you mate.



Finally finish wiring up my guages. Sorted out earth points, tidy the wires etc.
Theyre all working now, well except for boost


Painted the inside of my inner guards today. They had over spray on em and 25 years worth of dirt. Gave 'em a scrub to get all the **** off and layed on some black 'Kill Rust'
