    Default LC GTR (no Tags) in the build

    Hi guys,

    Below are some photo's on the LC Two Door.

    The car has signs of being a GTR but has no tags so who know really.

    GTR bits include:
    Spare Wheel Retainer Bracket
    GTR Badge Holes in Rear Quarters
    GTR Stainless Steel Interior Trim Holes
    NON Welded Flutes in Guards
    It has the holes in the Firewall for the GTR Throttle setup

    Anyway, I've had is for a year and I've been slowly working on it

    When I first picked it up



    After I cleaned it up a bit

    Hit it with a coat of Primer


    Have removed the front fibreglass spoiler



    That's how the car is sitting now so theres still a lot to do!

    I've also picked up some parts for it along the way

    Grill and surround that aren't too bad but will be getting re-conditioned


    Re-upholstered front and rear seats with rails that I scored off eBay

    Mate awesome, so glad for you that you got it blasted, saves so much work, just don’t let it get surface rust. I will follow the build my first car was a 2 door Torana. What are you going to do regarding the engine?

    Keeping it old school.

    Ok great, Iím building a engine that is pretty old school or from an old school era but with modern touches. Perhaps you may be interested? So the engine is a V8 and first appeared in 1978, so not as old as yours and I suppose two key differences are the engine material and fuel injection. However fuel injection can be a good addition on a wild engine as it helps the engine to be more stable. The one area I would suggest you look at is the throttle bodies and the fuel injection. Iím running AT Power throttles which are shaftless and as such give an appreciable flow advantage with better throttle response and better ram effect. This is the same style of throttle that the old F1 engines ran. The AT Power throttles are about 99.5% efficient whereas the F1 versions are about 99.8% efficient. This compares which standard throttles at 93% and I would guess a carburettor is below 90%. Hereís a clip to visualise.
