jeez weezy you almost made me blush

Great to hear that man, makes all the nights in shed i bit easier to take... I don't even want to know what i have spent on earls fittings, but they have just given me a earls 15% card which is a bad sign i think.

Still have to get the -16 and -20 fittings for the radiator... think ill continue to throw out the reciepts so can never add them up

I suppose the downside to building this car myself is the length of time it is taking, working 6 days a week dosent help. Has now been off road for 3+ years which might explain why its going back together with a white body so i can drive it for a while.

Cant wait any longer

thanks again guys dave

another update

Hey all, thanks for all the great comments its great to hear that people like the stuff im doing

Well ive got a bit more done this week so thought id post some more pics, moved onto interior this week and its starting to look like a car again

Am planning to rebuild interior in fibreglass but have decided to put original stuff in for now to get car tuned and drive for a bit.... then ill start interior later... oh well wont bore u anymore

Mounted the lt-12s and igniter box







mounted the fuse box and relays behind glovebox



Finally mounted my fronts seats Had to build custom adapter plates to mount on original runners but very happy





And fitted my boost gauge and tacho

Just waiting for my walbro pump to turn up and still sorting out the radiator, then can start it again....

Thanks again for all the comments dave

wat u mean not that loud

i was a little worried bout it being non directional myself, and not being loaded off anything.
but being a sealed box it should be ok.... will be a different type of bass though... subs will be reverse mounted otherwise box will be too small
