theres actually a fair bit of bog in the rear quarter alot was removed and alot was put back in but when it comes time we will do it properly when the torry is done the ute will be coping a full rebuild ground up

Alrighty update time i have photos but im too lazy to put them up.

The torana is coming back home again so i am pulling my finger out with a long weekend should make it easy on me...

first time ive primed a car $175 later i have a gun mask and all the primers i need. i primed up the door quarter and 1 front quarter started prepping up the nose cone and guard....

i also stripped out the burnt pieces left in the car, which was the heater box y piece and the whole venting system basically along with the loom and half the dash... so i have a deal with a family member if i can find him a round GTS clock i can have his caprice dash so please help me on this one...

Tomorrow my mate is coming over to finish of the tunnel and hopefully we can do the final torque down on the motor and box and i can put everything back on to get towed to the mechs on tuesday...

i have bought a full spool off ebay and i can't wait to figure out how it fits lol

also i have a surprise no-one will be expecting it starts with N and ends with OS
LETS JUST SAY HIT THE FRIGGIN BUTTON

i will put up photos tomorrow night

Josh, good to see that you're actually making good progress and doing your research. Well done fella, keep it up!
Stay focussed and keep on like you have been and the nay sayers will leave you alone.
Who knows, you may even show a few people that you can make a silk purse out of a sows c*nt.

But really, NOS??? Come on dude, keep it real! This is a daily driver after all, isn't it???

the NOS is for him to suck on in the cab, not for the car

Josh just dont use the NOS on the street its dangerous in the wrong conditions and a bloody huge fine if you get caught with it on your car, so if you get any silly ideas of using it on the street, DONT !
