I then spent saturday putting in the 24 buckets and shims. I had no idea of the order so just wacked them all in and checked clearances. Only had to swap 3 out for spares to get within specs. Repco had mechpro torque wrenches on special for $39.99 so the head was torqued down.

Where I'm up to now. Just needing to purchase spark plugs and waterpump really, might do dizzy cap and rotor while I'm there as they are looking pretty manky. Really hoping to get this all together and back in the hole and running over the next 4 weeks

Had a clutch hard line made up as I didnt like the look of the braided stainless one. Finished assembling motor and gearbox and put them in the hole, half the wiring done, most of the front end reassembled.20200102_130400.thumb.jpg.96c78784338a4982419dbe58d11a4ff1.jpg

Camber modded f series subframe back from sandblast and powdercoating. Facelift gx61 unless they're factory twin can come with a smaller 6.7" t series diff. To upgrade you just need the crossmember and diff. The rest is interchangeable 20200117_135604.thumb.jpg.109a75dfa4e3366ffdaa9526baea2c3d.jpg

Not having a good time. Probably should have sorted the subframe before shopping for tyres.20200118_100929.thumb.jpg.b5933e70a344c8cc36dcc6ee967840d6.jpg

May reluctantly end up running 7 inch rear and 7.5 inch front to get through cert.

Beat the inner guard lip with a hammer and trimmed the chrome edge to suit around where I folded the lip. Planning on a full re-spray post certification so things like this can be painted and undersealed then

Chrome sill and arch trims put back on20200120_064443.thumb.jpg.81b84baf07b4a412823447494c98b4ce.jpg

have managed to get the rear down to 250mm wheel hub to guard but untill I get to wheel alignment there's no telling if I'm within camber specs. 

Have ordered an airbox from a 1gge gx71 via yahoo. Doing some measuring on a friends car the intake pipe with temp sensor has the same pcd as my 1geu afm meaning I should be able to bolt it up to my stock airbox to keep things looking like the car came with the engine from the factory. Screenshot_20200116-122430_Chrome.jpg.a33d5b998468637f92168c3c8cb0d097.jpg

Driveline all back together with fluids, fender mirrors reassembled and installed, put the front sway bar back in and inner guards. Then tried to bleed brakes and realised what the tubes were for that came with new master cylinder which I threw out yesterday, called it a day. 20200126_145616.thumb.jpg.1bae85687f662b92db95275836ebaccd.jpg
