Well, been a while, things have been busy as all hell for me of late. Car has been moved into a storage shed in Ararat.

Ty, if you could please PM me a list of everything that needs to come out of it and brought back to you, that'd be awesome. I'll get it all down to you at some stage.

I haven't had any time to actually work on this old girl over the past 2 months, its been gathering dust. Hopefully get a bit of time in the next month or 2, but I'm not holding out hope. B4 will be picked up sometime mid to late July. Lots of parts will be ratted from that for the track car. Expecting to have a track car that will be ready turn key start by christmas. That doesn't include track prep, but the conversion done and the ability to actually drive it (of course not registered however)

 

Will keep this page updated as things progress.

Ben

Update. Pick up the B4 around mid august now. Been some issues trying to organise things with my new roster. Will hopefully be removing and replacing some bits from the track car over this week coming, whilst being back home.

Been starting to get a list together of parts that will be sold to help find this little play toy:
HID headlights, suit rev D/E gen 3's, complete with wiring loom for self levelling.
Bilstien struts and STi pink springs.
Complete interior of an ADM B4, minus the bfm cluster
Maybe the momo wheel

Will update this as I think of more things.

Cheers, Ben

Hahaha, don't laugh, I'll get it converted in that storage shed!
Might take a while, but it'll be done. I've got to go through the gen 2 loom diagrams and see if I can just simply swap the gen 2 loom for the gen 3 one complete. Save me splitting and splicing and ending up with a mess.

I'll be pulling the struts and wheels off this block off coming to go back to Ty. It can stay on stands until I get the B4 back with the coilovers.

Cheers,
Ben

Time this thread was updated. Wheels have been removed, and suspension is almost completely removed. Rear struts are just sitting in place. The first things that need to be done is install the coilovers and then put wheels back on this thing so I can put the B4 in the shed with it. Then parts will start being slowly transferred.

And by slowly I mean as fast as I can manage with this roster I'm working...

Cheers,
Ben

Well. Coilovers are in. Spare v8 STi wheels are on as well. Pics as soon as I'm off this phone. Had to remove the headlights and indicators to allow the B4 to fit in the shed. It's a tight fit. But things will happen next break. Spent most of the last one in Adelaide, so only 4 hours or so was spent on the cars. This coming break should see more time spent in the shed.

Ben

Ty said he wanted them back. So they're waiting with the wheels.

Haha, well, its been a little while, and nothing has really progressed here. New job means no time for car fiddling. Been tossing around the idea of making a steel frame to put in the storage shed as a mezzanine floor so I can store parts that I pull off the B4 - due to having no room to do anything...

 

Lads, I need to come down to melbourne with a shiteload of parts to give to their respective owners. Are the weekly Burwood meets still happening?

 

Cheers,

Ben

Meets are still on most weeks. Shoot Joss a message would be the best bet. He seems to be in the know if theyre happening during the week. I believe theres a sizeable one planned for next week

Ah. I won't be making that one unfortunately. I'm not back in the country for another few weeks yet. New roster is pretty nasty for duration, but the days off are great.
I'll be sure to do that, and I'll give you chaps fair warning as well, make sure you're all there to collect your respective bits.
Cheers for the heads up there Nick.

So. Progress finally. Storage shed has been increased in size. Went down this morning and noticed that the one next to mine was empty and without a lock. So I packed up what I was doing and went straight to the agent.

And done!
Got back and immediately started removing half of the partition between them so I can actually work in there. Yes, I know its not something you're supposed to do, but I'll put it all back up again before I hand them back.

So, back to the car. B4 has had the crash bar removed, as well as the battery. I've put her up on jack stands, and removed all the wheels. The braided lines have now all been removed for Simon. Just ended up cutting the hard lines because they wouldn't come undone. Will get the impact socket out tomorrow night and remove those for ya Beckers. Still yet to make it down to Melbourne, and working shift coverage this weekend too. Thats ok though, I'll make it eventually.
