    Fuel Tank Is in
    IP have changed a few rules including pedals, so I sold the top mount pedal box and ordered a Tilton floor mount. This will help with many things including reservoir positioning and not having to make mods to accommodate the adjusting cable
    V8 Supercar rocker covers have been restored and looking mint
    Suspension arms and crossmember are out for powder coating.
    Have been doing many behind the scene things as well.
    Over the next few months there should be a lot of progress, I will be employing someone to do the time consuming fiddly things to help move it along.

    What diameter are the adjustable rear spring perches and where did you get them?

    Very nice BTW. Almost too nice to race!

    Are your fuel hard pipes all flared ends or are they the olive on pipe set up?

    Olives hold 10,000 kPa or 1500 PSI when done up well. They look like they are pretty good quality.

    Someone once asked me if they could use my mower. I said "sure, so long as it doesn't leave my yard"

    Ok thanks for info Jason. I was planning on new hard line from the tank as the difference in price compared to braided line is heaps.

    Haha fair enough

    Had a bit of a side step with the pedal box, after IP rule change we can now floor mount the pedal box. Which is a good thing because the top mount one was giving me the shits, was having issues with the mounting system and room for the balance cable, it was going to cost me even more money to make it work. So I cut my losses and installing a floor mount system which should be in this week. Also had a issues with the seat height, when the cage was fitted the guy who did the seat mounts made it higher than first measured so it resulted in the harness bar being too low, the steering wheel being to low and my head to high so lowering the seat fixes all these issues, that should also be finished this week.

    Holinger has been refreshed and ready to go

    Suspension arms and cross member have been powder coated and installed with new bushes along with the steering rack. A lot of work by Supershake to the suspension dynamics to get the best we can out of it within IP regs.

    Bought a new rear wing

    Astra Power Steering pump installed

    Rear caliper mounts made and installed

    Front rotor hats and dog bones being made at the moment

    All the panels, doors etc have been painted with the exception of the front bar, that will be modified to suit the final ride height then a mould will be taken

    Bought a NASCAR 2 stage diff and gearbox cooler pump that works off the diff pinion

    Managed to get a hold of some very nice V8 supercar headers and collectors........ they are awesome
