Ha ha.. Yeah im working on getting the beastie on the road. No excuses now, have the PS pump so..... Even my Wife keeps asking when are we going cruisin!

Wheel specs are Front 18 x 8, 245/40 and Rear 19 x 10 275/35 - the 30 series dosent have enough rubber IMO.

You are not going to believe this Steve. The afternoon before I left to come back to work I went into the local performance shop looking for some AN fittings. Whilst waiting for service I was wandering around in the shop as you do and found the exact PS pump I needed hidden on a shelf, and this one was polished as well. Couldnt believe it, the owner told me a guy ordered about a year ago and never picked it up. It was the same price as the one I got from the states as well. I think I may go back and get it as spare just to be sure! Been there all the time

Thought I would throw an update up from what I achieved last month prior to going back to work – not as much as I wanted!

Managed to complete all the wring and fitted the PS pump and fired her up. Kicked over first time ( was a little worried as I pulled a lot of wiring off and also install a new 600hp fuel pump, which hadn’t been tested. Bled the brakes with my new power bleeder and took it for a spin. Felt unreal, even though we (wife and I ) only went for a spin around the block. First thing my wife said was, its very loud isnt it

Parked it back up in the shed and found she was getting a little hot and the reverse lights weren't coming on, turned out the thermos weren't working, as wiring is not exactly my strong point I called an auto electrician, but he wasn’t available until late in the afternoon on the day before a flew back out to work. Anyway he fixed the thermos ( I had the relays wired up wrong - duh), didn’t get time to sort out the reverse lights.

Also discovered that I had orientated the emergency brake adjustment shaft too far out on the rear calipers (1986 Cad servile calipers and discs) meaning the rear discs where engage constantly – they were a little hot and smokey after my spin. Jacked it up and couldn’t move the wheels at all by hand – not good!

So next trip home after my surf trip plan is to fix the brakes and get the reverse lights working and she is over the pits.

This is taking a lot longer than I thought it would, mainly from me stuffing things up!

Here are a couple of before and after pics ( sorry about the rubbish quality phone pics ) of the new Fesler reverse lights installed. Much better fit than the originals and so much shinier

OEM - not such a great fit.

Glad to hear you've got the car going.
I've had the same experience lately as everything seems to be taking much longer than it should ,usually work getting in the way, but you've gotta work (don't you?)
I like the lights, are they LED's?

That character building stuff never ends with these cars by the way

Did the back tyres rub on the guards when you took it for a spin Lyndsay ?

Nev, yes their LEDs I fitted Fesler LED taillights as well but I dont have a pic of those.

Greg, by the time I have finished my character will be pretty strong the way I am going ;-) !

Marty, I chickened out and fitted the the 17in Halibrand repros for the spin, not going to muck around with Rushforths until I get her regoed and do the brakes at the same time. Still a bit worried about rolling the guards.
