Well its started

The car is back on a hoist, the engine has been moved around, the front end is back on

A couple of things on the list though

1) Intake issues to be sorted., ie bonnet mods
2) Transmission Requirements
3) 9 inch diff

Will post pics at some stage next week

Yes It was an amazing site to see the T with sterring rack and front rotors and Brembo's back on.

The engine is being dropped in from above, and with major mods to ABS, etc we have decided not to fully hook up the NOS system yet, that can be a job once she is run in a bit

Yes will run with an Auto, Russellw has kindly researched some boxes for me, AOD or C6 rated around 1200hp looks the go

Thermo Fans are a problem as well because of blower brace sitting so far out

I didnt have a camera today, and wont be able to go back until Monday

Not sure how your going with the nine inch conversion but Street Machine has an article about a nine inch IRS conversion for a VT Commodore and at the end of the article it says they will have one ready for the AU and the BA soon. It uses a magnesium alloy carrier and can run any diff gears or centres that would fit a regular nine inch as well as a choice of axles. Maybe that could suit your requirements.

Minge, what do you think you will do with the bonnet, maybe a BA XR8/GT style bulge?
Glad your car is getting close, can't wait to seeand hear the finished product.
I read all the other thread last weekand it took me 4 hours (I think I need a life!).
