      All welded up nice and neat! I changed out the bolts to a counter-bored arrangement as the countersunk bolts would become incredibly tight. Looks nice and neat still so I think I’ll counterbore the front 2 plates as well. Maybe now I should look...

      Firstly I’d look at the intake, check for blockages, or a dirty or collapsed air filter. Sounds like it’s struggling to breathe at higher rpm. Did this occur suddenly?

      Sidetracked again, finally started the diff cover on the bash guards. Bent the main piece in the press at work but I’ll get the marine fabrication shop 2 doors down to weld it together.

      Got the arms re-installed last Thursday night and a wheel alignment done Friday. Then left on Saturday morning for a little holiday, a 1500km round trip. Since I’ve been back I’ve thrown the middle bash plate in the mill and machined out a...

      Got the first nylon bush machined today, had to grind the correct geometry tool for the job. It took some maths and a crappy drawing to figure out the dimensions. Hopefully these experimental bushes perform, there is a ton of work involved in...

      More machining done this arvo. Got the 4 thrust washers made, took some measurements and cut the sleeves to their final sizes. I just have to do the nylon now, which means grinding some tools to suit. I’ve also cleaned off the chassis...

      Had a fun drive out on the local trails yesterday, and returned with evidence.😬😂 My wheels are too wide for my old tyres, time to order some 285s. However my nylon and new springs arrived so I’d better get to work.

      Got the sleeves done after work today. And a photo of how the spring seats fit on my coilovers. The springs arrive tomorrow so I’ll have to get moving with the machining work. Bad news is I crunched the tub, I’m looking at going back to a tray...

      Machined the lower spring seats for the 2.5 id springs this week, turned down from some 4140 bar. Once the top hats are done I’ll send it all off to be EDP coated. I also started machining stainless sleeves for a bush set to be installed in my...
