  1. yeah some thing like that may help drastically if can find it with the right sizings. just had a quick google looks like can get premade bends or pie cuts or straight tube in 3.5" oval in NZ so thatll be ideal
  2. Figured as much, thats allgood, fabricators problem to solve haha. 3.5" is alot of girth to fit over/under a diff.
  3. Exhausts, When going under/over a diff, for a cert does the diff have to have no contact with exhaust when its fully jacked up? Eg if the exhaust goes under diff and cars jacked up, if it touches is this a no go? Small car big exhaust problems
  4. Thanks man, you cant beat the factory styling in these things, same as what i did in my Impala. Just looks so good!
  5. Have just had Kaz at KP Upholstery retrim the factory seats i had that had been covered in some sort of velvet material in a past life ha. Picked them up today along with the doorcards. Vast improvement! Very happy how they have turned out, He has recreated the factory interior style which will look the part im sure!
  6. Looking epic man!! So good.
  7. Looking like your making some good progress on yours! Mines is coming along albeit slowly. The last couple of minor bits of steelwork have been done and filler work progressing well hopppefffulllyyy not to far from going into primer then will chuck some photos up. Panelbeater/painter is doing it after work/weekends so that slows things down a bit. Interior is off at KP Upholstery getting done however so thatll be some progress when thats done.
  8. Epic man this things looking so good, Attention to detail is bang on. Be a good feeling finally piecing it back together, looking forward to that day soon with mine.
  9. Yuuuussss. Pics please...
  10. An yesterday i picked it up from the booth and took it back to the panel/painters place so he can fit up panels and get stuck into it.
  11. Well things have been all go to end 2021 on this. The couple of weeks before xmas the painter baremetalled the shell and last of the panels. Bolt on panels have been epoxied and all the steel work done. Xmas eve we put the shell in the booth and cleaned it up and blew some epoxy over it. Stoked there is only a couple of minor repairs required to the steel work, on the whole its a very good shell.
  12. All happening this week. Got sent some pics last night from Mark at Revolution Engine Services of the new block all together. 13B PP all brand new bits, franklin engineering bolt on's, polishing by Toby Gollop and plates smoothed and painted by Tony. Pick it up this week, another big piece ticked off. Body is basically baremetalled now and we are throwing some epoxy on the shell on Friday this week then she will be all go in the new year into the filler etc. All starting to come together nicely!
  13. Another piece to the puzzle completed. I couldnt justify the $2k + for a factory steering wheel they go for, if you can even find one and jump on it fast enough. Managed to come across one for a fair bit cheaper that had a horn pad but was missing the horn spring/housing/mechanism. Was hoping id be able to find that easy enough, Turns out it wasnt that easy and finding a complete wheel would of been easier id say! A chance conversation with Andy Duffin and he mentioned a guy who had messaged him with a damaged RX3 wheel which would have the parts i needed. A quick FB message and was able to nab the damaged wheel which had been sitting in the guys workshop for 20 years +. Was able to make a complete wheel with my decent condition one so pretty happy about that! Will help make the interior look how im planning.
