Things have changed a lot this year and we are now on parity for once.

Re: The big strip has begun!

Few more mock up photos






This is with my trailer wheel and tyres fitted. They are a 235x80x17 ( 31.8") instead of the Grand's in 245x65x17 (29.5") in the other photos before this.


This is the stock axle location as well.




Think the tall skinny look works well with the old truck and hotrod look I am going for.

Re: The big strip has begun!

This is just AWESOME on so many levels. Im bummed that you claim it will take 10 years though. What part of AU do you live in? My dad just moved to Brisbane in Queensland.

Re: The big strip has begun!


The last of the interior wiring finally out. I have filled a whole 55 litre tub with just the interior wiring alone and have none of the under bonnet and floor stuff yet. And that does not include another tub I have been filling with the different ECU's, moduals etc.


This is the whole heater, A/C unit as well. Hoping to re-use that as is.


Just a shell now. Only a bit is some firewall insulation left which will come out once I unbolt the brake pedal which has the booster and master cylinder on the other side. Hand brake will come out once I loosen off the cable inside the rear rotors as no adjustment anywhere else.


Got the rear frame unbolted. Might think about using it in the Willys as it is also the mount for the panhard bar, tow bar, two exhaust hangers and the charcoal canister. The spare wheel also sit inside it.


Got the rear bumper off too as well as the chrome roof rails and petrol filler. Everything is ready for it to sit up high on stands so the drive train strip can begin.

Re: The big strip has begun!

Steel blocks like that are usually noise insulators/cancelors mate.
Often during developement they'll track a resonance to a particular area, and can cancel it out by adding a weight here or there. Pretty common practice.

Re: The big strip has begun!

Excellent information Marlin. I thought it might be a remote possibility but didn't know it was a common practise.
Will remove them as hardly going to be a problem under a Willys truck bed.
