New ignition barrel location moved from the old dash panel, because of the new dash panel design.

Hi All, its been a long time .. Hope all are doing well. I'm still on the forum, and still love the posts.  Caught up with Brett_f today grabbed some gems..  Front spears and tail light surrounds.. Has got my FC blood flowing again, and wanting to do more on the car again.  So I have some pics and posts to come soon.

Some Pics of the floor coated in the kbs products


Added a plate in the roof for the sun visor.

Formed a plate to match the roof line


Used a self tapper to hold it in place


Spot welded it in place


Used some sealer and rivet nuts to hold the center bar in place

Looking great Cam.
Good idea with the sun visor bracket strengthening. Think I may also do that with mine while its in bits.

Accelerator pedal completed.  Started with a commodore pedal, and fabricated a bracket and mount plate, using the original bushes and spring.



Lick of paint ready to bolt in

Weber 34 adm accelerator mount bracket. Started with a lot of lines and measurements, making sure cable will not hit the air cleaner and come over rocker cover    Huh



Drilled holes, folded on the lines and added some weld for extra strength 


Final test run


Lick of paint and happy with its look and how it works

I just did a cable setup on the 179 X2 in my FB ute. The jugs bolt straight on the manifold which makes for very little clearence to the manifold. Also I'm running a tall tappet cover for roller rockers clearence, exacerbating the issue.I ended up setting it up to pull down on the manifold side. Using a hx v8 cable. I use the original pedal, extending to a 60mm radius, with outer bracket sandwiched between brake union and subframe leg.
