G54B's 1981 Mitsubishi Scorpion chin-waggery thread

This is a fair bit different to/crappier than Phil's. It's live axle, Astron powered, non-ventilated brakes etc, pretty boring really. It'd be nice if it had all the cool stuff, IRS, turbo etc, but we got royally shafted with our captive imports and import laws over here so the Jap-spec A16x hardtops with IRS, 8v 4G63 etc are VERY rare. As in, I've only seen two in the country in the whole time I've owned this thing.
I'm kinda envious to be honest, you guys got all the cool stuff. Almost enough to make a guy consider relocating. Almost.

Centrelines are kinda cool, I'll admit. Nicer size/offset than the stockies or 6J +5 Hotwires I have. Also better off smacking them into gutters and whatnot than something cooler/expensive.
Needs balance shaft bearings, but CBF. Bought an eliminator kit from the parts shop instead. Pick that, rings and another sump gasket up, head out and have it back together (hopefully for the last time, but I'm not holding my breath. If it's not one thing it's another) tomorrow/over the weekend.

+1 there's something quite sweet about them
I also like the Centerlines, but please for the love of God do not tell anyone.
