Well, I guess overdue for an update, short story, this car is killing my life! Lol Maybe more then COVID!
ive decided I’m doing the entire front end, so really just been shopping on line. Waiting on a couple more things to arrive then can push ahead with the build.
My guest room in the house is now a parts room and is just about packed to the ceiling with parts.
I’ve got new king pins, inner and outer ball joints, hubs, bearings and tie rod ends. Just got to order bushes for the front.
rear end I got new hubs bearings, bushes (a mix between white line and nismo) and building a 31 spline diff, ordered a quaife centre, got my hands on a set of 31 spline half shafts and brand new ring and pinion gear set.
I've had the sump cleaned and coated black, did buy a greddy diff hat, but it doesn’t fit! Grrr hit the extended sump, so going to use the factory hat.
Probably spent about 2k+ on new oem nuts/bolts/washers etc. As the saying goes, too much to list! Lol
sent the front diff gears to Neat gearboxes to be shot peened, once they are back will get the sump back together and put the motor completely back together and ready to put in the car.
Rear turbo housing and manifold have been ceramic coated and I had the under car heat shields done in custom matte silver finish.
Engine covers are done, most brackets have been coated, front reo was powder coated as well, re done the gearbox crossmember.
just got to do my catch can and a couple of other little things to coat.
Bought the new PRP pro trigger kit (well the top part) which runs the new sensor.
Goal for the car is still the same, although I’m feeling I’m going waaaaay over the top.
Probably will be too clean, but it’s my money, and I still plan to drive it everywhere!
looking forward to a Bathurst run!
