I have H4 lights now. Here is the mod to the light bucket. I made the round hole rectangle and fitted the headlight harness in. I'll seal the plug in now and can clip and unclip when needed.



At least now I'll be able to see at night!

Good idea NES the originals don't exactly light up the road, do the blocks and wiring come with the lights or did you get them separately.

Cutting in on NES,s thread im doing his sump this arvo.

If anyones not real keen on doing their own it can be pretty straight forward.

First i was astonished at nes,s cutting skills it was extremelly straight very impressed. (almost makes me think someone else cut it)


Lay it on a nice flat table and i clamp a artline pen to a square and run it around guarenteed straight line.


i cut an oversized piece of sheet put swages in (optional) then simply tacked in place . go around and grind it so its flush around all edges hit with a wire wheel so it gets the shavings out of the crack as it can add porosity to your weld.
I use tig and leave it un ground as its very strong but you can mig and grind up.

I just need to add the deep section tommorow and mod the pickup.
very enjoyable day in the shed. think i have spent 30 min on it so far.

You cant see but i welded a strip across  the bottom full length put a few stiches on it . Im paranoid about the length of it cracking or vibrating.

I added the pan still gotta fit the drain.
Put some swages in it to try pretty it up.
I really should have come and had a look so I could add some radiuses and tapered sections to get more volume. (and make it look like not just a box on your sump)
Still dont think its enough volume NES 3 litres in the pan. I think i might need to come have a look we sorted your grinding skills now we will work on your template skills Grin

Pete, In the day they were making sumps for the V8 toranas with extensions on each side of the main reservoir for increased capacity. They didnt look too bad. Not sure if this would work for you because i dont know whats running past each side. Brett

Well it's been a while since I've really been able to attack the car. Been really busy with work blah blah blah. Anyway I bought a new toy... 6L V8 with only 60'000 k's on it.


Now I can be all tough with my fluff balls in the back



They are trying to quit smoking
(Tapatalk2 program can add stuff like Instagram including changing of style or colour of the photo)

Ps, the box in the back has slotted drilled rotors!

More pics coming
