    Right then bug xmas / new year work on car... firstly disclaimer if people don't like seeing cars meet a grinder don't keep looking Right so I carted the v6 and 6speed up to keri keri over Xmas. And got the GTO finally into the garage. And stage 1 remove engine. Done
  12. I may have one in storage... along with my 2 spare cars. sadly the current daily maybe parted out as the rust has got to that level so one from that and let me know if you need anything else

    So whats the next stage... well firstly, i need to actualy get the engine/ box to the GTO (ive been moking this up on a spair celeste shell). i know i need to at least notch the xmember to clear the sump. sadly will need to cut the tunnel a little to make way for the new 6speed but thats all part of the fun of this kind of swap, and before you all explode at me no this is not a perfect and clean GTO is been messed around with, arches on the back and fiber glass front wings. looks mean but needs to sound it too... and yes this is the first photo of the gto on this form Like i said she is not a looker but being solid and had a lot of rust repairs already done will help. as for interior I finally managed to track down all the little and odd parts I was missing, from one guy Quick question, dose anyone here know or can help ether track down a fiberglass bonnet or another original one as i now know the carbs wont fit below and i dont want to cut up the only one i have ... just in case

    right long time no update but got some stuff sorted. firstly mounts, one side is done the other needs a new motor side plate making but will be done soon. secondly, the fueling system finaly showed up... need to make it fit now thirdly i did find a gearbox... I don't know if it will survive yet but its a 6 speed twin overdrive out of a Great wall v200 so i got it for a good price then found it takes a nissan clutch that is the same diameter as the original (if by original i mean pajero 3L) cover and matches the flywheel after that it was road trip to my good engineer friend with an old pajero bell housing and the gearbox to get the joined (this time it was not a 40mm spacer refer to rover page if you want to know). As a side note for anyone with the same forethought and planing as me.. put the gearbox next to the original just once before this much work.... yes its huge but i will make it fit (and yes, that really was said to my girlfriend). and this is what it looks like all bolted together
