I've got to pull it all apart again and paint brackets etc so I'll take photos then.
I might have to push penguins out of the way (it's like the South pole in my shed)

New grille kit back from the paint shop and installed on the race car, left side headlight surround needed a bit of bending/massaging to get it to fit properly

Permantly fitted the steering column with the firewall seal, upper & lower cover & boot.
No pics.. It all looks the same..
Still waiting on a few terminals to finalize the dash loom.. Little bits & pieces like running wires the the elec fuel pump relay & safety shut-off that I did also..

Now I'm shopping around and pricing body deadener/insulation.

What are you going for on the body deadener?

Not sure yet.. Still shopping and nutting out what I want and actually need. There are many different prices and products from various brands and stuff some recomended yet, not really required..
Considering Hushmat, Fatmat, Showdown, Second Skin, B-Quiet & Dynamat..

So far, these guys seem the best. http://www.sounddeadenershowdown.com/cgi-bin/index.cgi
Great information if you're considering too. It appears the big names want to sell you stuff you just don't need.

Hey Nev, I've found that the Dynamat is not as expensive as first thought..
Not only is there a local distributor for this stuff that would otherwise be so expensive to ship, but the US$RRP prices shown in the Dynamat website are basically the same as the AU$RRP prices I've just been quoted. ..and I'm still likely to get a discount if I bargain with the retailer when buying a quantity.
So now, Dynamat appears to be the easiest and cheapest to buy.. so far..
The search continues..

I bought my Dynamat off Ebay, it was far cheaper than anyone local.

Do you remember what you used? Dynamat Extreme? Dynaliner? Dynapad?

Went and got a pink slip (roadworthy) went to the RTA, packed with people and not being keen on leaving my car in the car park, I left.
Steve, I found the "Dynamat extreme" pretty good with road noise and heat, but useless for exhaust noise, (I think that's a mounting or muffler issue) but I can now hear my stereo So it's an improvement.
