    I drove the car as is until March 07 when we decided to build our first V8

    so we ripped the motor out and started the refresh of the engine bay to start with.

    please keep in mind i have never tackled a build like this ever before and didnt really know where it was going to a point, i had an idea but not solid

    all ready for some colour finally

    i liked the bnm mega shifter as it looks similar to the original t bar but didnt like its height so again nothing beats custom parts to get the job done

    one of my areas of the car ive always loved. I knew what gauges i wanted so when i finally got them all i designed the dash panel on CAD and got it laser cut out and then had tabs made to suit the original dash mounting points welded on. once ready i had it painted when i got the engine bay done so it was all the same colour. then cleaned up the dash itself for now until i get the interior all redone at a later date

    Thanks guys it was a couple of years of hard work and dedication especially on a low income hey

    theres just something about the sound of what i have ill never change it hey, dont get me wrong id love to have more power etc but to hear this old school 308 with a massive cam just cruising around and gilmer belt just sets it off for what it is

    The drivers side resevoir is the radiator overflow and passenger is for washer bottle water

    i couldnt find anything on the market that i liked so a mate welded them up from a template i gave him. i had stand offs welded underneath and tapped a 6mm thread and are bolted through from underneath with rubber spaces. the radiator overflow has the an fitting with an ally tube welded to be about an inch off the base and onother tube welded in the correct spot that still utilises the original hole in the bay to reslease the water. works well
