    Thanks Guys, I'm going to drop the springs out of it this weekend to see how it looks.

    WoodP. My brother built the rotisserie, not sure what he's doing with it. I think he was going to see if people would hire it, instead of selling it. I'll find out and let you know.

    Springs were dropped out (Set of Pedders sportsryders, I'd picked up) and the original springs put back in. Hey Presto, everything sits and lines up nicely !!!

    First bit of color went on the car at the weekend. Probably the last weekend we could do it before it gets way to cold. Heated the shed up with a JetFire to get it done. All the repairs have been primed, and the firewall was painted. Now that's done we can put the brakes back in fit everything we need to to the firewall, then through the winter work on the bolt on bits.

    Hey Guys, haven't posted in a while. been slow going over the winter. Doing a test fit up, put the engine and trans in, getting all the lines and wiring in the right places, going to try to fire it up this weekend to make sure we've got all the plumbing and electrics working. Then we'll pull it all down again.

    Hey guys, haven't posted for a fair while. From the outside not much looks like its changed. But we've been doing all the repairs on the hanging panels. Unfortunately I'd get halfway through and remember I hadn't taken a 'before' photo. So Photos are a bit thin on the ground. here is a sample of the work done. The only panel left to do is the bonnet. So getting close to priming and edging

    Been pretty busy with work and on the car, haven posted in quite a while so a bit of an update.

    Had a few goes at getting the bonnet right but finally got a good on and didn't screw it up.







    Painted the underside of the bonnet and the cowell grill and inner guards

    Hi
    In order to run rear discs u need 2 xtra items
    1 more brake pedal assistance = double diaphragm booster
    2 higher hydraulic pressure = proportioning valve

    Drum brakes generate there own assistance discs do not

    The booster can come off a sedan or stato
    The proportioning valve can only come from a sedan , The only difference is a longer internal spring

    Incorrect brake pressure if not enough at the rear and under severe cases the rear of the car will overtake the front . Causing spin .

    Warning if u donnot overhaul by painting and zinc/cad plating components they rust and seize on . Never leave handbrake on during storage .

    Hey Swampy, I've removed the residual pressure valve from the master cylinder in order to give more hydraulic pressure to the rears. Got this from another guy who's done the conversion and he said everything works well with his.

    Hi
    Rear disc brakes need more assistance and more pressure than a drum setup . This applies to Ford Holden Mitsubishi Honda or any conversion drum to disc .
    The residual is to keep remaining pressure up and primed in system to keep linnings pumped out . No effect on operational pressure .

    A different pressure proportioning valve will increase pressure to rears . There by operating discs as required under normal operation . That's only the pressure side .
    The booster assistance side will determine max brake force as well .

    The difference shows up when u need the brakes the most .

    If not fitted with correct parts u run the risk of not passing rego inspection as well . just saying .
    Done this at least once .
