not much to report in as yet however i now feel totally motivated again, all i need now is my bits from R.J.s & some brake gear to arrive from Lamb & its all systems go

i am hopeing that the parts will arrive before Santa gets here as i will be able to complete the front end over the break

i ordered new rotors & hats ect for the front & rear as the rears rotors look a little crappy now next to the new calipers

once all the R.J. gear arrives i can fit up the new heims ect to the front end & rough the alignment in

i will re-fit the columb & then all thats left to complete the front of the car is the scoop & fuel line

i am however trying to find a Magna Fuel - Fuel Pressure Regulator mounting bracket as i want to drill & tap the manifold & will use the angle bracket bolted to the manifold with an insulator between it & the reg so if you have a spare bracket lying around name your price

apart from giving it a wash i am at a total stand still until my parts arrive, guess i will have to break out the sponge

i can re assemble the doors but thought i would let the paint go off as i have just had them re painted as we made some modifications to the inside of them were the window screws to the door

in doing this we straightend out the line on the top edge & added a longer inner section to allow the window to screw straight upto the door flange
