not selling! bought a heap of new bits instead. ls1 coils, 6 exhaust gas temp sensors, 2 haltech thermocouple amplifiers for the sensors, 2 temp sensors (1 for water, 1 for trans temp) 2 pressure sensors (1 for oil, 1 for fuel), a can HUB, a little convertor box for my speedo. might as well make the racepak iq3 dash show up some of the things it is capable of

also found a manual steering rack and intermediate shaft, ordering some coilover sleeves from otomoto and a nolathane bush kit for the front end. its going to a huge week when i get back to tassie at the end of the month. i cant wait to turn the key

My god, you have gone mad with this thing, madder than me I think. Love the exhaust, one tip though, make the pipe longer, trust me you will cook the crapola out of the paint.

Well played sir.

thanks guys. ill get some more photos of it when im home. looking into buying a dslr at the moment for some nice high quality images rather than pissy iphone spec.

i was going to cover the sill with some stainless to deflect a bit of the flamage from the exhaust or is that not enough?

Nah, mine had that, and my pipes were a bit longer too, still cooked the paint a bit, although, it does shoot flames every gear change at the race track

I'll have to make them a bit longer then.

Picked it up from the trimmers on Saturday, got a bit pissed up because it was my 24th as you can see in the picture (taken at 10:30am). Was a bit seedy yesterday so only got the struts, lca's, sway bar and castor rods out. Today i ripped the motor, kframe and power steering rack out today, cleaned up the non- powersteering rack and kframe, patched up the holes in the fire wall and bogged it so it'll be ready to be rubbed tomorrow morning. Blazed up the adjustable sleeves for the front coilivers so they're ready for paint. Should have the motor back in tomorrow arvo fingers crossed.

I put in a lot of hours through the last week trying to get it done. It's at about 95% complete. The only things stopping it is a rocker cover gasket, engine oil, oil drain off the turbo, a 90 degree fitting to connect one of the fuel feeds under the car and a catch can.

Anyway time for some more photos

Whilst I do prefer the Calais over Berlina/SL.... don't do it!

That car deserves the red Berlina pin stripe!

vote for my car and ill keep it as it is!

its still exec/sl spec atm but i just found a place that sells re-pro berlina pinstripe and would need blacked window surrounds to complete the look. when its running i think ill drop it off somewhere for a closed door paint job, my dog ruined the paintwork on the bonnet, boot and tops of the quarters while trying to kill a cat.

i booked in a tune today for the 16th of october. getting very close now
