The beginnings of priming and sanding the engine bay for fresh paint. Tossing up whether I keep the stock green under here or something different. Any suggestions what colour the engine bay might suit?

Little bit of progress with the ECU. Got the board populated. Need to buy all the sensors etc now and start designing how the harness will work.

Stripped and rumbled the L200 LSD. Turned out to be a clutch pack 2 way assembly. Pretty happy to discover this. Nice and shiney after a day of rumbling.

Finally found some valve locks and got the cylinder head finish assembled. Still needs lash to be set. Time to bolt it down to the block and time it up ready for exhaust and intake mockup.

Machined teeth into damper for crank angle pickup. Hopefully enough to provide an accurate pickup.

Made my own catch can out of aluminium pipe with press fit end caps. Pretty happy with the result.

Front shock mocked up in place. Will need to be removed for crack testing later.

Not my proudest bit of fabrication but does the job nonetheless.

Yummy bits today to make up the new loom. Basic wiring from link plus a Deutsch connector kit and 33pin bulkhead plug for the fire wall. Also an inline thermostat for the fresh water systems.
