    Just get a non ac belt and keep the serpentine system. It's neater and has less drag anyway.
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

    Yep, I'm keeping the circustime belt. I have plans for the 'tina should it survive...

    Anyhoo... I smashed out a small rust repair out of some sheet. I know it's rough, but it'll work...



    Back at it then, I guess... :P

    Got my 5 stud conversion today, would have fitted them but they gave me the wrong seal. $20 for the old rotors from a wrecker, $45 for the bearings and seals. No discount on the bearings... bugger . Dummied up the mag off the val to see what it'd look like :P



    Good thing about these rotors is that they use a hat pressed onto the hub: I might be able to fit a better rotor on it in future...

    OK........ Just spent a stack on eBay. $219 on a chinese special GT35 and another $49.97 (lol at the exact exchange conversion) on oil lines. Sent the exhaust gasket to the engineer to be copied into a flange to build a manifold. Gotta start watching the pennies now...

    Got some EA calipers to fit to it... Does it classify as safety items or do I have to add it to the total?

    As for "win", things are starting to happen but I'm not yet cranking about it...

    Wow thats a lot of effort to go to for a shit box that only has to do a few drag passes. I say that in the most loving way possible as my first car was one of these. I would love another but they all seem to have rust like that. With those skills you might fully resurrect the beast. Top work.

    It's a holiday, so I've been working at 1:5 can/minutes and amount of work has been quite minimal... Now at least there is heaps of room for the 4L!



    And the turbo flange is done- picked it up friday...



    Might do a little more prep work on the motor but I'm getting to the CBF stage of the day...

    I am really digging this project! Love your work.
    1990 E30 BMW 318is - In progress!
    1974 KE25 Corolla Coupe - So much rust...
    1955 Matchless G9 - On the road and loving it!
    1954 Matchless G80 - Because the one above runs too well so I need something more broken...
    And a fucking 1962 Rover... Because that makes sense
