Hey guys,

Not much to report today, sent my door panel cards to the other side of the island to get fixed and fiberglass and then smoothen down and to get threadlock cause want to put back on the brackets this evening.

Both are out and getting fix cause they tend to break by just even making heavy eye contact so wont get them til end of the month.

Top left is what i ordered, bottom left is what i sprayed but it got fuzzy. On the right is what i picked up today at a local sewing/fabric store that have all kinds of colours and i was like "well Duh! Should have came here before ordering":slap:

So those will be going on the door panel cards once it's complete, gotta keep with the theme ;)

Here we are, alternator and A/C compressor will be placed in once the engine is in.

Got my painter to do mini bodywork on them to make them more solid so they wont break and big thanks for my Buddy Chaz & Kyra, those 2 have did my carpet and calipers before as well as the valve cover here. Most appreciated.

So been busy at work but this is the update on the steering system
20220126_075522.jpg


Thinking of turning the head around
20220126_075533.jpg


This need cleaning up and out
20220126_075539.jpg


Thinking of running it this way so i can have easy access to the ChaseBay P/S delete kit
20220128_172804.jpg


Does anyone know what to use to clean out the steering rack with and what to fill it back with?

I'm proposing on clean it with diesel but i want to know what to fill it back up before i connect it back up.

Let me know if thats a good idea.

just about any solvent should clean it out, so diesel would probably work

cant help on the filling it back up though

Morning guys, its been awhile so lets get to it.

Subframe parts have been powdercoated, just picked it up yesterday.

So the Pinion now i'm going at, gonna get new booths tomorrow but gonna clean up all of that dirty oil inside and get that spic and span
20220222_175938.jpg


Ofcourse you know, going to be using my favourite purple blaster and CRC degreaser to take all thr dirt and build up off.

Then wire brush the paint on the black part off and get it prepped for the Epoxy and black clearcoat spray.
