Hi Guys,



I made noise with the ute today it runs & does most of the right things.




I have had a day of programming as I used the ecm from my sv8.



Now I can go foward & plumb some brake & fuel lines. Then tidy up wiring which has been pulled apart for diagnosis.

Boy hasn't time gotten away since last update.

Had to remove the gear box & rebuild only needed a couple of synchros done.

This involved pulling the the front end apart & refitting it again.

I only have a couple of brake lines to do then drill out stubs for abs sensors.

Hoping to get some parts at bendigo swap that will move the project along.

I am also working on the headers, must have pulled off the drivers header 15 times today. I replaced the collector gained some steering clearance but still not happy.

This project is getting easier to get parts as my local self serve wrecker now has VY's for me to get parts.

The weekends go too quick & at the end of the day I forget to take pics, I'll take some next week.

Cheers Bob
