Just wondering if those mounting brackets on the backing plates are going to scrape the inner guards or have you already ollowed for that. I didn't look all the way through the photos carefully but all the commodore rear ends I've put in I had to relocate those brackets so the hoses wouldn't shear off with suspension travel. Just think its worth a look. Cheers
What mounting brackets are you talking about Huh

Yeah Physio isn't as good as Chiro from Mum's point of view too and she has this disease severely. The shed is progressing and the frame should be completed tomoz.

Thanks Craig.
Just saw the bottom of the last pic and the pipe is scewed off as I was still going on the backend of it and this was a progress shot. The first line is easy - trying to match the others is difficult

NES

as long as you're happy.

At the end of the day unless your showing underneath this would no doubt be sufficient.

BTW went to a show and shine on the weekend which was a part of the Leyburn sprints and took out Car of the Event. Great surprise and very unexpected as I didn't even clean it other than chamois the bugs off the windscreen and front of the car. Many were intrigued how it all fitted in under the bonnet.

Cheers

Thanks ED. It's steel and a pain in the abdominals, laying under the car in a half situp hurts after two hours! I tried to bend it while off the car but was doing a crap job. The pipe bender I have kinked the larger tube as soon as it got passed 70deg so my hands are killing me from bending by hand Angry BUT it is coming up good and the Clamps Pete (FCRB26) made are gold (well aluminium but awesome bits now added to his catalogue).
I got the lines from First choice Brakes at Cardiff in Newcastle. They call it "Bundy line" and about $40 for a 6m length of 3/16 brake line (thinner one). Think I paid about $60 for the the larger one but I had all the fittings and P clips as well.

Well I wanted to clear up the flare definitions. I am doing SINGLE flares. Picture shows ball shape is a single flare that Holden use and right is a double flare. The double flare is just a single flare that has been pushed in. Ps arrows are for Pete

I found a problem with the brake line from the calipers, they fowl on the crossmember. I haven't cleaned it yet so no comments on the dirt.

I bought these to get around it as they didn't swing out as far



Will need a quick touch up paint.

They're off the VT as standard with a different fitting- nothing special. Unfortunately the bolt does fowl on the lip of the crossmember.
