Assembly has started.

I was going to install my new 15P engine, but then remembered the injectors are different between the 10p and 15p so we paused on the 15p installation.

I also was quoted a nice price for the GT2052 hybrid cartridge, as well as GTB2260VK hybrid cartridge.

I was goin to purchase another modular header, but the prices screamed up...I got mine in dec for about 75gbp, now ebay has them for 160gbp and up...

Lets see if i want the headache or not.

Dont always believe what you read online.

I was under the impression that a front diff cover for a Dana 60 should have fitted on my Salisbury housing.

I machined the holes, and got proper bolts to fit, and upon fittin the cover, it came in contact with my crown.

Feelin very upset, i started to repair my original diff cover, which is littered with holes.

IF, i decide to modify the dana cover, i would need to make a 15mm spacer.

Borderline not worth it...

Also Rakeway sent me two left rotors, so i need to chat with them and get the correct right side to complete my kit.

Finally got the rear end on, man what a pita!!!

Trailin arms are on, springs and airbags installed, A-frame needed a little modifyin to fit. I have the tubular model, and the mounts had to be modified, then i found with the eye all the way in it was still too long.

Cab doesnt fit the chassis properly, the front two outriggers are not positioned properly so i need to modify and fix...

My corsa rs recaro seats fit, after i modified the seat risers. The recaros are 2cm narrower than original and 10cm shorter...

Pix to follow after outrigger repair

More and more parts goin on these days.

My problem list

Front Recaro seats from Corsa RS
-Exmoor adaptor not needed. My head was way too high, almost touched it without the headliner
-Modified the base plate so i may have more head clearance.
-Seating a little funny, but will make changes later once dash is installed
--my knees are very high and my butt low.

Rear folding seats
-Need to pull the seats forward so they may clear the rear
--makin new seat box out of 3mm steel.
--Also makin side supports

110 45 ltr additional Fuel tank.
-I am not keen on drillin a hole in my plastic fuel tank, so i will modify my 110 aux fuel tank to house an external fuel transfer pump. When my fuel level gets low, i will transfer from my aux tank to main tank and keep drivin. Will route dump hose through main inlet of main tank.

Clutch booster
-modified main clutch line to route to the new inline clutch booster so my pedal effort is much less. I got a 1.9 instead of a 2.3 ratio. Price and availability dictated.

Pictures to follow
