    I got stuck into the floor fan this arvo, and knocked most of it on the head...







    Just have to finish the welding off and then I'll be hitting the trans tunnel.

    I was sick for 2 weeks, then the lawyer handling my case retired and the new one found that he failed to do some things and the firm was also representing the other party... I then spent 2 weeks in Adelaide sorting that mess out. So with all the extra time we managed to get, I'm back to where I was a month ago... in a very tight spot with time with the build.

    Oh and in that period- someone jumped my fence and flogged my BA calipers...
    Not had a good run lately. lol

    The pipe is a bunch of bends to build the turbo manifold. It looks a little like a corkscrew... a very jerky one...

    I pretty much finished off the passenger side floorpan today. Might have a go at getting the trans tunnel out of the donor car tomorrow.

    Decided to concentrate on structural repair instead (I don't want it coming back like a dog with a thorn in its front paw) and yay....

    Well over I think. But it's all about personal satisfaction of doing it yourself, and as such keeping costs to a minimum.

    Nice get it DONE!
    Very professionally, and with no emotion, Walter spoke: “Los Angeles Center, Aspen 20, can you give us a ground speed check?” There was no hesitation, and the replay came as if was an everyday request. “Aspen 20, I show you at one thousand eight hundred and forty-two knots, across the ground.”
