So ive started to cut out the rear tubs, proving a cunt, as the boot bracing that goes to the wheel tub is hard to get at and i need a Plasma for the weekend (cheers brother) to whip them out fully.

Also got a free Hilux rear diff housing.

yeah

^pertaining to the aforementioned, here are some illustrations.

I didnt get any of the diff, because they all look rather similar. It came out of the Hilux a dream, easiest extraction ive done yet.

Front of the S12 wasnt too hard either thanks to the old man attacking it with the front end loader and rat gun.

I was dropped to see how close the front was to Escort size. Of course there will be heavy modifcations to fit it nicely, but fuck, pretty close Ted.

I brought some cool suspension and brakey bits from nickm, will disclose when I have them and sort through.. 

also got timken rear wheel bearings, metallic pads, caliper kits, UJ and some sundry items from work.

I’ve been a bit off this week and have had to shit 350% more than normal so haven’t layed into it but have done a little more on the rear tubs

big thanks to nickm, went to collect the bits I was after and he loaded me up with lots of other crap too!

more space in his shop, less in mine but I’m stoked. 

Unfortunately the cert bible says I should have 280mm vented discs and twinpot calipers so these won’t be useful but I’ll pass them on and look for some skyline ones.
