    Dry Ice and remove as much as you can. Will make it noisy but do wonders on the scales. Can you tell me location to money tree hahah Let me know what you think about the master and P Valve. I’m thinking of doing the same.

    Got it all off already. Only the front half had it, which looks nearly like new in some spots. But the back didn’t and is rusted pretty bad. I wish there was a money tree I have been selling old car parts and making a bit of money off that lately. Just about dried up that source though. The master cylinder and proportioning valve won’t be here for another 6-8 weeks.

    tell me about it. Mines soaking up all my Cashie money.

    Min gunna have to start pushing shard in the CBD LOL

    haha, I bought a new tv the other day. Had cash from selling some old parts. Paid for said tv with approx $3600 cash. Cashier asked why I had that much cash on me. I told them Coke is a big seller this time of year.

    Front passenger. Drivers side is the same.

     

    Rear passenger.

     

    Rear drivers.

     

    Most likely cut out the rear half of the car and leave the front.

    Can you buy replacement floor panels?  I imagine it wouldn’t be too huge a job to do them yourself?

    You can buy the replacement steel panels. If I go that way, I’ll do it myself.

    Another option I am thinking of is to do the rear half, if not the whole floor in aluminum. Because it’s easier to add weight then remove it later on.

    Found more rust in the drivers side and a pin hole in the passenger. Probably have to replace the whole floor now.

    I guess if you have to cut the steel out you may as well save some weight.

    Not much to report. Pulled the driveline out except for the diff. Need to be able to roll it.

    Cleaning up inside the front arches and the lower side of the chassis rail at the front, to paint it that black underbody paint.

    Above the chassis rail/engine bay will get cleaned up and painted a standard gloss black.

    Going twin 63mm billet wheel Borg Warner turbos. From the SXE range. So the best they offer and I think it’s currently the best 63mm off the shelf turbo available.

     

    Roll cage and the rest of the fabrication stuff has been postponed till March because of the car ahead of me booking in more work.

    So in the mean time, I’ll get the bay cleaned up and sprayed. Then will sort the racepak dash out. Might order the turbos soon as well.

    Did a bit of painting this afternoon, in the front guards and lower half of the chassis in the engine bay.

    Had a couple minutes to spare, so threw in the Rod Shop front end. 3 bolts. Tight fit, with clearance all round and no cutting.

    Not too much progress to report on the car itself .

    I have a new motor now though.

    402ci LQ4 with LS3 heads. 10.0:1 comp. Holley hi-ram manifold to suit.

    Decided that I wanted to make over 1000hp and turn it down to run mid 8s. So hopefully all that can happen with the new motor.

    Picked up some new injectors last week. 

    Moran 235lb/2400cc billet atomizers. Hopefully big enough to supply copious amounts of methanol and small enough to supply 98 octane pump fuel on the street.

     

    Also started stripping the paint off the doors which is uncovering some rust. Shouldn’t be too hard to fix as I can buy replacement prefab ‘d pieces to suit the exact rust spots.
