    Taken it out twice - both times weather looked good and both times it totally shat itself raining. Bring on summer

    Weather put me off taking it to Chrome today. Took it for a hoon about town and it didn’t miss a beat. The blue 808 (mates) got a new turbo last night and was put to work on the track.

    Well today the car passed the compliance recheck and I now have 12 months REG and 6 months WOF. Thanks to those that have helped me during the build. Now it’s time to relax and enjoy the old sled. Beer o’clock for me I will be parked up at chrome this weekend weather permitting. Come say hi.

    So here is one hell of an update for y’all.... Clint came over for the final cert check this morning and it passed! I’m now awaiting the cert plate (up to 10 working days) then it’s back to compliance for the plates. Hope to be legal for the Burger King meet on the 13th. beer o’clock oh - small update...cut up the original gear stick and welded it to the rude short shift stick. It now shifts a lot smoother. I will cut and rethread it by like 5cm to be at the perfect length.

    Been super busy at work etc lately so it’s hard to finish it all off. Will keep you all posted on the progress. Winter cruising is just around the corner.

    Pretty sure the hand brake is working all sweet after some shortening! Will be booking the next available Cert check and then it’s back to the compliance centre to complete the process and gain plates.

    I have S5t rx7 gearbox and that’s throwing it out somewhat. Might do me some reading on ausrota - for now the stickers are fine.

    So 4 things needed to fix for cert (1) Wheel alignment - print out emailed for cert (2) bump stops on the rear struts - done (3) speedo stickers made as my calibration is 17% out. (4) hand brake cable - we tried spacing them out however the rear sections are just too long. I’m booking it into a professional outfit hopefully next weekend so I can get custom hand brake cable made. Then thats cert sorted and compliance also as I need a working handbrake. It’s only money aye
