Hey Team

So changed my mind about the wheels on the touring and decided to try the style 95's on to see what they looked like. 

Couldn't really get a good gauge as the fronts wouldn't fit due to tyre size and rears fitted but are just touching the shock housing.

So in the process of sorting some smaller profile tyres and putting the style 135's on to the sedan which i think are better suited for.

Also a nice surprise this morning. 

Yes yes Charlie ( EUROLESS ) I should really finish one car before the next haha but couldn't help myself.

Have purchased this beauty which i will eventually get to once im ready on the touring.

Just going to let it sit on the back burner, but very excited! :)

Hey Team

Got the tyres sorted for the style 95 and look much better now on the touring. I'd personally like it to sit another 30- 40mm lower but ill leave that till i get adjustables for it.

Hey Team 

So finally got the goodies from FCP EURO delivered .

two big boxes of goodies, I didn't bother taking the stuff out as you'll get to see it all been used once i start the swap.

But purchased a fair bit of things.

All gaskets and bolts needed for the M60b44 swap.

2 sets of valve cover gaskets.

2 sets of the FCP 16 piece control arm kit. Will be doing a full over haul of both cars suspension.

Almost there and ready for the fun part of fitting all these parts.

Hey Kyu 

No real reason really, just what they provided in their premade control arm kits. 

but heard both are good options/brands. 

Oh also the life time warranty is a bonus for all parts.

Hey Team

small update so had  the touring our on the drive way as normal had a little rain through out the night.

Found a little puddle on the front seat and knew the leak had returned. Saw 2 small droplets on the sun visor so knew it was in that proximity   Wasn't till later when i looked into it further that the front and rear driver side footwells also had gotten wet. Spent the Sunday pulling the liner down (also intend to redo at a later date as sagging) The drain tube was still attached and draining fine, so sat in the car with a hose going on top of the roof. Bloody culprit was a rubber grommet that the sunroof cable comes through.

Just loose enough to allow a small drop every 10-20secs to come through. Silicone sealed it and will retry once it has cured.

Hi Team

sorry for the lack of update, have a had a few 1st bday parties to attend past few weekends and have managed to tee up an affordable  work shed to move into,went half with a good friend. So busy moving all the toys into the workshop.

Also managed to pick up a spare parts car which came with a spare motor and box too.

Some of you may have seen the Hamann PG2 for sale with the hole in one barrel, yes i couldn't help myself. So though to myself how am i going to fix this on the cheap. Brought some 3 piece Jdm wheels so have also started stripping them to hopefully get the Hamann centers bolted in and have a lower offset.

Also got a finished lsd diff refurbed from the man himself Kayne Barrie. Can't wait to stick this sucker in the car.

So thats where everything is at the moment, will start attacking the motor in the next few weekends.

Hey Ian 

Same as you. 3.15 could have left it with the 3.45 but still want it to be reasonable on petrol at a 100kph.
