yeah yeah yeah, im still alive, but this time of the year is sooo busy...!

Anyway, still no wheels, but i recon they are here next week!
But anyway i have done some stuff... :

fitted oil pumps and coolers for diff and trans, had the inlet machine polished and swr made up some new coil brackets, the whole package is taken to a new level from last time i put up pictures if it, it is now very SHINEY!!!!
Intercooler modded from 2x3"outlets to 1x4" outlet, and we also machine polished the center section of it, wich made it very SHINEY(!!) as well
fixed rear number plate lights(!!)
made up the clutch pressure line and bleed line
Made and fitted a serious ground cable for the engine
Fitted the new calibrated coil overs
Fitted the starter, AND cranked her for the first time, a few minor fuel leaks to remedy, and 1 small oil leak, due to to little care when i mated the fittings&hoses.

So definately on the final run now....luckliy!

Cheers
Joel

"Joel, your wheels are now built and will be shipping tomorrow. I did a little redesign on your wheel-caps. See if you like this one. it is the ZzzZzz but with a double line close together to make it stand out more. Forgive the magic marker colored cap. lol, Just wanted to give you an idea.

Melissa"

Yessss , finally i'm getting my wheels!!

Joel got that - hopefully I got it right this time, measurements were tricky - part 7-8 hours ago and went straight to the shop for assembly and I have not heard any complaints, so for all I know it has been running already..
