Last couple of weeks have been hectic,....
got the radiator over flow tank mounted n plumbed...
Got the heater hoses all sorted n connected....
Mounted the Charcoal canister..n vent lines...
Remounted the bad on the back.....
mounted the storage box in the back n the battery box inside ot....
mate ran the last of the wiring n hooked up some things...Stereo, AMP , Washers etc....
got the power windows all mounted n working in the doors....plus the remote locking mounted...
A mates givivng me hnad with the rear cab wall panel....itll be upholstered.....
my One Piece fibreglass hood lining arrived form the US,..a quick test fit n see how it looked,...thinking white gelcoat wont cut it,....maybe a suede , velour or material lining of some sort..
Took a couple of days to sort final custom pedal install and bleed the brakes,...n get all the junctions n fittings to be OK.....
Fitted the Lokar shift cable n had to modify the AU / BTR shifter arm....all worked ok n the Column shift seems OK...
Tranny tunnel screwed down to the floor....tunnel and all floor fitted with soundproofing ..Underfelt fitted...then carpet fitted n trimmed..... seats been bolted in now....
First test drive was friday arvo......unfortunately there were a few bugs,...the gearbox went into limp mode...n wouldnt kickdown,.....the brake pedal needs a slight adjustment as it sits too high,,...and need s bleed as its a bit soft.....but the Jag power rack seemed to offer little assisitnce,...we filled the PS reseviour and gently bled the rack,.....untill the wheel jerked and than managed to blow a seal out of the rack...

Turns out someone managed to connect the pressure side n return side back to front..... oops!!.....
so now Ive gotta drop the Rack n see if the new seal kit will hold it OK....also while Ive been working this week Ive been helping a younger gut paint a neaghbours house...and a few other things now to be done.

This week is final fitting n tweeking,,,
final wiring,...find a Speed Sensor wire for the gearbox.....
mount the GPS speedo sensor.....,..new glove box to fit
ran PW wires into the doors.......finish fitting the USB/Ciggy lighter plugs.....taillight wiring....

and fit the new seals to hopefully fix the Power steer n replumb the power steer lines correctly this time..

Goddamn that looks super rad

Love the schmick interior (that actually complements the polar-opposite patina outside). Those GT40-esque seat rivets are sweet too. Congrats & enjoy!!
