Have got it back on four wheels now, front suspension finally in!
Still a few bits missing - sway bar, calipers and steering box etc but im most of they way there. Was a combination of powder coating and por 15. Trunnions all put together nicely and prothane kit installed through out.
It feels good to start throwing away parts boxes after they are installed!
 
Got new door handles in and linkages hooked up - nice to open doors again the right way!
 
Have been working on the lokar pedals and getting them to fit to my liking.
 
Ron Francis wiring harness has arrived along with a bunch of parts from Amark including new front indicators that are now fitted.
 
The guys who did the body work and paint asked if they could display the car at a local show, so i had a bit of a hurry on to get it all rolling within a couple of weeks. It had a fair bit of attention at the show which was nice!

Hi All,  
 
Not too much to update, moved family and car 3000km West late in 2015 so not much has happened.
 
Ready to get the motivation back in 2016 to start a few things, but very hard with only a single car garage that only just fits the car width and length!
 
I did get a mention in a local magazine that was looking at cars 'In the build'
