Hi everybody
Just a few small things.

Powdercoating came back .
I fitted a high flow K&N element to the air cleaner .
Made a bracket to hold the coil which now hides under the air cleaner.
Lead brackets blend into the extractors making the leads dissapear very happy with them.
I had to drill the rocker cover thread out to fit the breather. That was daunting. Hope it works as it looks smick very happy with it.

2 hours masking
2 minutes painting
Just the little touches that make all the difference

I havent started the wiring .
I have changed my mind 10 times how im going to do it..
Today was rainy and overcast so cleaned the shed and played with the kids.
I havent been out much at all works busy so thats where my time goes.
Took a friends car to the drags ran a 9.2 then a 8.8 over the quarter back to the drags saturday .
Shes a little datto 1600 running a turbo LS
850rwhp on a mild tune.



Also helped a stranded fc ute fitted a new diff centre for him


Also we dynoed a mates eh i did a bit of work on.
It has a  rb20det which i paid 100 dollars for 7 yrs ago . Absolute lucky dip engine unknown condition rolled out 193rwhp drives fantastic.


So i do keep busy just not on my own toys.

pete I had to use a XD falcon motor as vr commodore didn't come through the fire wall enough. It looks in the pictures that you may strike the same problem.

I have modified the original vr arm to fit the fc parts. Should work.

Just need a spot face drill bit so i can get the nut on
Using this arm makes up for the short shaft on the vr wiper motor

That's very similar to what I did Pete I think I used two nuts to gain more distance into the cab and it works fine.
