    Cheers ,ate, the reason it went through 3 resprays was simply it just wasn't good enough, with runs, dirt inclusion, filler etc. it wasn't good, it is now though

    The second half to 2015 has been a slow one in terms of progress. With a new girlfriend and a first house purchase in the sausage machine both spare time and money has diminished some what. As you will see from the images below all is not lost and we are now in the most exciting final few months of the build, the main remaining items going into 2016 will be: Coolant, Wiring, Fuel Lines, Exhaust, Mapping, Interior / Exterior trim and last but not least the wheel choice! I hope you like the progress finishing off for 2015...

    Hi buddy, glad you like it, it's all slowly coming together now! With regards to the AT Power throttle bodies they were a direct order for an ABF engine meaning no addition inlet needed to be purchased as it is in essence one unit. Hope this helps!

    Tonight a good friend and I began re-trimming the rear seats starting with the bench cushion with my design... What are people thoughts as i'm unsure whether to re-trim front seat same as below or to invest in a nice set of buckets? A few pictures of what was involved. Old pattern copying... Sewing... Full bench cover nearing completion... Trimming foam... Complete...PERFECT!

    Hi Andy! Timing is such a hard thing as I'm going on the basis it'll be done when it's done, it's now three years in but at most will hopefully be a four year build providing I keep throwing money into the pit!

    Cheers for the love man, the paint the first two times just wasn't good enough, dirt inclusion, runs, filler not flatted, to the normal eye though it would of been fine hahaa!

    It's been a while since my last update, i've been really busy with work, but in the background things are moving slowly... Below are a number of pictures from the third and final respray at a highly recommended paint shop and its perfect! I won't bore you with the rest but i know now that it is right, next pictures are of the engine (ABF) completion / gearbox total rebuild... Custom front engine mount (first fit) which will also hold custom radiator and oil cooler once complete...
