Thanks bro. Money well spent.
I'm going to try and hide as much wiring as I can.

I've managed to get a custom radiator made by Race Radiators in Melbourne. It took around 4 weeks. I received it a couple if weeks back.



Had a accident at work so progress will be slow for a little while till I come right. Got a fair bit to do.

My engineer bro dropped off tonight 1 of the 2 tanks he has been making for me. This one is the oil catch can. He is finishing off the washer tank. Undecided where to mount the radiator overflow tank yet.



---------- Post added 05-09-13 at 10:53 ----------

It's not mounted. Waiting on a k&n filter.

Slowing ticking along. Interior isn't far away. Busy with house and property stuff. Need that bigger car garage. Haha. Exterior door handles are body colour.
I should have just bought a genuine and slapped some Simmons on it. Teach me for not wanting to butcher a genuine.

Kicking myself now for starting this project. I'm over the asking price of the lowest priced one. I thought I could build one for a lot less. Yea right. That's me doing everything I can myself.

Just an update. It's been a while. A lot has been happening. Walky has been pushed to the side.
Anyway. The VS Senator seats got a working over from a old friend of mine. Pretty pleased with the outcome. I managed to score some new headrest foams from NZ SXYHDT.

Yes genuine Walkinshaws. Genuines don't have chrome handles.
I hear what you are saying,But You ARE building what you want!
Yes as for cost I really know what you mean(we spent nearly 70k our HDT)I put it down as a cost over run:And I would do it again.

Cheers Marty
