Cheers dude yeah it dose look pretty good I am gonna get a peice of bar, hot it up and try and do some thing similar :)

Any way had quite a busy weekend got me dad's mates big diesel compressor in so I could get on with rubbing down and what not :)


Sills all stonechipped


Got the body the doors the tail gate the wings light pods and bonnet all flatted back now I have to start Gping over it sorting out the little dings! Me brother is gonna give me a hand with that as he is quite good at that sort of thing :)

Also got all the wiring and cables back in the engine bay along with the steering rack wish bones and brake set up on but I forgot to take a photo :)

I am having troubles with the m/c upgrade though I am not sure where I am going wrong I need to put pressure on the m/c to be able to bolt it in but that will mean the brakes are always on I have taken the servo back out and it is still the same can any one help?





Also managed to pick up a stainless bumper we are Going to adapt to fit..... Sneak peak....





Bracket cut down to size just need to drill it to fit, will reveal more where it gets done.......

And finally.... recived my new door cards the other day look awesome cheers gggti :D look ace with me speakers!




And that concludes another episode of caddy crisis, tune in next time folks! :)

theres a spacer missing off the m/c....... whatever sits past the bolted shoulder on the top one needs to be the same on the bottom one.
its like youre braking already as your compressing the m/c to make it fit!
