I feel spectacular man, must have been that phone call!

Didn't get the whole interior in, but as much as we could. The front seats are bolted in as you can see, however we have to wait for the sunroof to go in before the rooflining can, and the loom needs to be double checked (by someone other than me) before I'm confident that the dash can be put back in. Regardless, I think the interior looks a lot more complete.

We ticked a few things off the list last night. The brake and clutch hydraulics are bolted in meaning the engine bay looks a little fuller, and the pedal box is now functional. We also degreased (or excavated) the K frame from years worth of dirt and grime ready for paint. The door locks went on, the rear bumper was given final fitment and bolted up, and the dress trims across the top of the rear rear bar went on. We started mounting the chrome trims as well - man, those little screws ruin my life!

I realise I should have posted pics of the RB25 rocker covers we had painted too - ah well, one for another day!

Excuse the photos, I had to work them a little because they were taken at close to 2 this morning:

I was so pissed off that you were awake.

Color has come out really well, I must say i hate red VL Interiors but it looks like it is going to go really well with the silver.

Much like Adams VH!

Thanks a lot man, I'm pretty happy with it. Will be good to see the two colours together in the sun, instead of using unnatural light in the garage

I think you were just pissed in general! "Don't touch me there woman, I'm trying to talk to Liam!". Man, you sacrificed sex for me to tell you I bolted two seats in!

Great work man the car is coming along well, can't wait to see the finished product. The red and grey go really well together, I reckon the series 2 seats with the solid head rests would of made the car look a bit classier than the series 1 seats but then again thats just my opinion

Good Stuff!!!

Yeah it's a bit of gear alright. It was featured back in Xtreme Holdens Issue 2 or 3 I think. Has come a long way since then and it's not done just yet. Thanks for the compliments too man, and I think I've found a set of 4.11s. The diff should be built by next week that means

Thanks Kyle. The solid head rests would be good, you're right, but these seats just came up at the right time for the right price. I might seat if I can track down some head rests of get some trimmed up or something, for now I just want to see it on the road!

I thought that might of been the case with the seats, but ya can never knock back a good deal at the right time.
