    I have to weld a spacer onto the plate between it & the long bolt hole on the box & tube the chassis for the bottom bolt

    This is the T3 box mounting arrangement.

  6. [​IMG] G'day all. had another win today. The left hand axle was a worry that it may have been to long to fit due to the Commodore diff offset. Good to have it fit & have plunge.

  7. G'day all I built the steering support brace for the upper column mounts. It was the rear intrusion bar out of a Nissan plastic bumper bar.
    It will be bolted through the vent frame with reinforcing outside in the air vent intake.

  8. Nice work mate:thumbsup:
     
  9. G'day all. I started sorting out the Tarago cable shifter to Hi Ace gearbox. With the engine set back the cables were short by about 10cms. Lengthened them with hi tensile threaded rod & a joiner. The rear section of the shifter bracket also needed extending the same amount. The rear locator bracket onto bellhousing had to be cut & shut to line cable up [​IMG]
