    I will be happy to get it on the track and do laps. Beating Honda's isn't my priority. Yet....

    Minor update. The UPC (or whatever they are called) rotors are lefts only. So went and bought some good quality rotors. Pick them up today. They will do until I get some 6 piston calipers.
    And I Stripped the spare parts car. The entire boot floor is cut out along with the passenger side footwell, as they have been modified for whatever reasons. So OEM floors will be going back in. The doors will be fully lightened to use in VicV8's, and the other doors will be left alone for IPRA.
    Car is getting picked up this arvo by my neighbour to take to scrap, even though he owns a commodore wrecking yard. It's a pity, the gearbox was recently replaced as well as the steering rack. Hood lining is unusually good.I even hooked the fuel tank back up so it drives.

    I do for IPRA. The car is fine for VicV8's. No point in doing all the fuel system, then taking it all back out to swap boot floors. May as well do it all now.
    And the other parts are just there incase I get some panel damage.
