It's getting there! Progress pics :)

Yes I know I should have had this car finished months ago, no need to point that out

Finding it hard to get motivated lately, sometime upto 2 week breaks between days that i make any significant progress. But since my last day of uni (last thursday), i've made extreme effort to get this car up and running, and i passed another rather significant milsetone last night....



It's a pretty much straight forward process after this, and it wont be long (provided nothing goes wrong) before it steps out onto the road after a 6 month break....

What the hell have you been doing to this car?

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: It's getting there! Progress pics :)

Haha, I love people's reactions when they see my car now. I had yagz over a couple of days ago, he couldn't stop giggling as it really does seem a lost cause

I've completely stripped the car of every EA part other than the body and chassis itself, and rebuilding it with EF/EL ghia parts. That pic is of an EF dashboard made to fit in my EA :)

Re: It's getting there! Progress pics :)

Because it is a much much nicer interior :) I kinda prefer EL ghia leather seats to cloth EA GL seats. I also prefer to have an EF XR6 4 litre rather than a CFI 3.9L, BUT I also prefer the EA shape to that of an EL, so I wasn;t content with keeping an EA or buying an EL, so I'm making something in between :)

Wouldn't it have been easier to have bought an EF/EL xr6 and then bolt EA panels on? :)
