    Thanks. Changed The rear cradle and Control arms etc to VZ ones for less negative camber and toe adjustment.

    Also changed the leaky diff while i was there (new diff twins). and rear shocks.

    Done boring things like the rocker cover gaskets and ac belt (now has working aircon)

    Looks like the fun police are at it again.  I really don’t get their obsession with defecting low cars, whats dangerous about it?

    Haha yeah. Worst part was that i was only in adelaide for the week for work training. Made going there even worse.

    Got one caprice handle in today. Hopefully do the rest tomorrow after work.

     

    EDIT:

    All handles are in. also replaced my drivers mirror that had tech screws in it.

    Began fitting my trans cooler, Got it bolted up to the bracket and cable tied the lines up.  Job for another day when i service the trans.

    Any idea why there are factory trans coolers on most v6 vt/whs and not ls1?
