    Some nice parts going into it mate, been thinking of getting those coil overs for my ute, so can run a wider front tyre etc. They do a solid axle coil over as well.

    Love the build mate following it closely. Wouldnt mind your brakes as well haha

    did you find the xyz easy to adjust height and damper Frazer

    Hi mate, sorry was so overwhelmed looking at all your goodies I missed this question!  To be totally truthful I haven’t actually touched them yet.  Its probably something i should have a play with at some stage.  Man I would love to do a first gen like this one day, going to be awesome.

    Hey all it’s been a while but plans have changed I found a better car to start with a lot less work for what I want to do so now I have a 83 vh commy a 92 year old was still driving it he had it 27 years so it’s in good condition just the common things like boot lip and a couple surface rust bits but easy to fix it has the 3.3 blue motor but goes well did a round trip to Auckland so about 1200ks ,,, so I have been doing work on the vb and it’s just about done going to sell this one , have got all the interior back in not going to put console back in they just look ugly, I have removed the 308 given that a clean up and paint (black got rid of the green) have cleaned up engine bay and sprayed that as well so just putting it back together so will be a nice clean factory 308 sle with a 6 speed so hope it will sell quick , still got to do brake and fuel lines as old ones were f*&ked  pictures :-)

    Clutch t56 putting this up so may help someone in the future, so some may know that the early t56 vr-vs come out with a cable hydraulic clutch so cable on pedal to a hydraulic master then over to the passenger side slave and it’s all a pull clutch, this made it a real heavy clutch this was a big issue as it started damaging syncros mainly reverse , so converting to hydraulic only.

    This is what I have done once on a vk and a vr gst worked well the gst was a pig to drive and that’s being nice you had to turn car off to get it in reverse oh and do 60kg leg pushes,  I have just made it better with the vb first I used a auto pedal box as it has no hole for clutch cable but has the prevision for the clutch pedal had the manual box as well just used the pedal , so worked out were to drill the hole for the master in the p/box ( note all the stuff is reused Master and slave) drilled hole in clutch pedal for rod pin then bolted master to p/box and welded nuts on the back then got some larger 8-10mm thick nut and welded on to the front of the p/box as they have the 10mm rubber between the box and fire wall once that was done I had to weld up the hole in the fire wall so I could drill a nice neat hole were the master would go and the bolts boles as well.

    Now that is done with hydraulic you need a stop point so you don’t bottom master out or make the fork hit the side of the pressure plate , behind the clutch pedal below the pivot point I welded a plate with nuts, between  the side where the clutch pedal pin runs use a bolt with a nut screwed into the plate with the welded nut the other nut is the locking point when it’s all set up.

    photo’s below hopefully make more sense once done you should be able two use two fingers to push clutch , reservoir is simple I’m sure you’ll be able to work that part out

    Hey Gary not sure if you want to put the in the tech section

    the first photos of the original set up just have not shown the cable goes into the box the master is on
