I didn't get it out over the weekend! A bunch of friends all cancelled on me and I need a hand carrying it from the crane, to somewhere safe at my house ha :lol: . Another friend is supposed to help tomorrow but we will see. Will get pics up as soon as I do! :D

Been debating what colour scheme I want go with. For things like the intake manifold and whatnot. Either raw, freshly shot blasted aluminium (can do it at work), powdercoated satin/winkly black sort of colour (possibly allowed to do it through work), or just polish everything! That will be long though Hahaha. Any thoughts?

Great progress mate, have you sent your propshaft off or are you waiting until the engine and trans are back in? Did you get the TII trans off Chud as well or are you using the S3 box? If I remember right he didn't mod the shifter position :? or was that on another car? If it is a TII trans has the tailsection been changed for S3 or is it still TII?
I was wondering because you, Keith and myself all need to get props modified but to get an accurate length the car ideally need to be sat back on it's suspension with the engine and transmission in situ. As we are all doing the same mod, 13b, TII box into a FB this measurement should be the same for all 3 cars and then maybe as you said Jesse we could get all 3 props done together at the same time and place and maybe score a bit of a discount

I also noticed a few weeks ago that somebody had damaged my passenger door from the footpath :x :x . I'm hoping it'll pop out fairly easily aye. Haven't done anything about it yet. It's my second passenger door also ha

It came with Tim's TII box. He has told me that the tailshaft section has been modified to bring the shifter into the correct position. It still uses the FC shifter housing from looking at my pictures though :?. Possibly cut the housing and welded it back up? I'll take a closer look next time I go to see my engine

Gillies, a downdraft filter, and a rotor shaped oil filler cap? Proper kiwi spec!
Nice one, looking forward to seeing where this goes with the turbo lump.
