    WHO does the shaving? They turned out great. Wouldn’t mind doing mine. If that’s the case

    You can easily do it yourself Cav. You just need to grind off the posts and then either weld up or use a high-temp epoxy to fill the little divots left behind. I had mine welded up and then used JB-Weld to fill in any imperfections as it has a temperature rating of 290°C.

    Just catching back up on the forum, cars looking schmick!!  I was think Red Centre Nats as its relatively easy for me to get too, and just going by the social media posts seems they are a bit more cruisy about letting people have some fun.  But yes, def have to get across to catch up with you guys on the east coast, in a big way….

    Mine is just ppg deltron epoxy, ppg enviroprime high fill, ppg enviroprime surfacer g7 and 2 coats of ppg deltron gloss black.

    very straight forward.

    Had a look at my covers and realised they are different to the ls1’s. Would be a tonne of work involved in getting them smooth. Might just lash out on some billet covers.

    Yeah, once I got mine welded up I thought It would of been easier to just slap some epoxy in the holes… :facepalm:

    you are thinking of epoxy eurothane aka sikaflex

    expoxy is a high strength etch primer with anti corrosive properties.

    good for heat and stuff thatll be around oil

    Any issues with filling the holes with expoxy? Like cracking or shrinking overtime?

    Ah now I get it.

    Going by your original post it sounded to me like you just filled the holes with PPG Deltron Expoxy and then high filled over the top of them. Which in turn made me wonder about shrinking / cracking as you mentioned expoxy is just an etch primer.

    Makes A LOT more sense now haha.

    Got my Spicer gears back from HPSF [high performance surface finishing] in Carrum Downs and they came up bloody awesome! I can vouch for this isotropic polish, it really makes the gears go the distance. It reduces the friction and the whine like you wouldn’t believe. but, mainly prelongs the life of the gears Before: After:

     

    Have you done this before or know people that have?

    @desam8: It’s a tight fit on the drivers side. You’ll need to nurse out where the footrest is on the inside of the tunnel.

    As well, you need to space the transmission down 10mm. You can do that with 100mm plates where the crossmember bolts to the body. Fyi, do your shifter first and put a bit of heater hose over the cable so it doesn’t melt. It gets very hot down there with a big stall converter!

     

    @sands vs: My cousin work there. They do everything for the v8 supercars. Wheels, cranks, rods, cams diff/gearbox internals you name it. I swear by the process. HPSF In Carrum Downs and ask for Heath Goss 03 9775 0898

    Thanks mate because im looking at fitting a tru track and as part of it they have to machine down the side of the diff gears. I would prefer to recoat them with something. Carrum downs is so close ill go see them mate thanks for that.

    Isotropic polishing isn’t a form of coating but polishing. Its worth everycent
