    cool, the radiator hoses still had their holden parts numbers on them, they are standard VP commodore hoses, just cut down about 30cm and bend a bit to fit

    Using this every day again now so is due a few maintenance items. Getting a little green drip out of the rad cap, so new one of them. Just a 13psi one, probably I should run a high pressure one like a commodore? I don't know but it has no problems* creeping cool even on hot days in traffic. (*More on that later) The only fluid I haven't changed is the trans fluid. It looked ok on the stick and I was hoping to be able to make a few internal improvements with a shift kit and Corvette solenoid, and weld in a drain bung and relocate the trans cooler Infront of the radiator Well that didn't happen as I felt it was getting over due Millimetre clearance to get the pan off. But it came off ok and I didnt spill oil everywhere. Oil was darker thank it looked and the magnet was covered in sludge, so probably time. New filter went in, then came getting the pan back on No good. Exhaust is as close as it can be without touching the pans front prongs and the corners foul on the trans crossmember - clearly a well thought out design. I wonder the filter has ever been changed? Anyway. Angle grinder that to a better shape And it fitted right on. If I ever need a new crossover pipe Il move it a little out from the trans And the coolant issue? The top rad hose has a drip from a hole worn into it by the hose clamp. Just noticed it today and It's getting bad so a new one tomorrow I hope. Looks like a VS bottom tube It never ends

    Sure it sounds like underwater farts, but that's a bit harsh mate

    You could also push that stuff out from the other side. Depending on the panels behind you could make up an engineer's jack, or get a small car jack in there. Make up a wee shaped dolly/spoon/leading edge to go on the panel to be pushed out

    There's some neat demos on YouTube with these stud puller lever set up things that use like 50 studs. You can do it with just a slide hammer tho Cos then you can have 2 projects instead of one

    Pretty bad but workable still. Some old patches behind the wheel arch Oh and 8 layers of paint plus bog

    The obvious solution here is to cut this and the grey one up and make a limo
