Some of you might remember a while back i started a project ( 5 plus years ) haha
The project is a lx hatch to be fitted with the complete driveline from an LX8 Holden adventra sports wagon.
Same running gear as the rare coupe 4 commodore monaro.
Well i haven't been unwell for some time as some of you know, but the car is still an ongoing to say the least.
The car was put on hold for 4 years while i wasn't well, but im slowly getting back into it.
The car was re sandblasted as it had been sitting for a while and this time painted in KBS and etch primer over the top of it just in case it gets put in the corner again.
So far the chassis floor wheel tubs boot floor cabin floor and rear beaver panel normal hatch rust sections have been modified along with the engine bay.
Rear flairs have been fitted and wheel arches have been cut out and mini tubed.
Currently up to smoothing out the engine bay and getting it ready for the engine and wiring harness to go in.
Dash has been test fitted and also in the process of fitting the commodore air con under the dash. I have had to modify the plenum to do this, Not really worried because the plenum had rust to be cut out anyway.
I have also fitted the commodore steering column and bracketry form the commodore along with the pedal set up so everything is from the late model commodore.
The brake pedal will need to be modified to sit in the correct location in the torana foot well.
There is still lots more to do and i know i will run into other things i haven't thought of yet, but 99% of things are covered at the moment.
It is sorted in my head and hurdles have been thought out and covered, like how to over come the tail shaft problem.
The commodore runs an independent rear so there is no uni joints on the tail shaft. i have worked out how to machine a fitting front and rear to bolt to the gearbox and diff to convert it to a uni style tail shaft arrangement.
Other problems have been with wheel track dimensions and so on.
The list never stopped, and I'm slowly getting back into things now.
While I've been doing other things besides the car. Like rebuilding a house in side and out extending the shed and tring to get live back on track in general.
I will upload photos soon.
