For sure Glen, that's the plan.
I was hoping to see yours painted when I was there but alas....

Cheers
Brett

Missed by that much (well, a couple of days).
I hear that AP FIA #3 is on the go. This might be the start of something big here...?

Cheers,
Glen

Default So it Begins

And away we go...
Rod ends installed.





Next was to change the original bushings in the diff to Neoprene







Brackets to chassis



With big brother reminding me of the difference between the old way of scouring wrecking yards for parts against all brand new with everything going together so easily. Good job AP.



Cheers

Default Update

Ticking along nicely this week putting suspension parts together.







Today was cutting out for pedal box.



Trial fit.





Getting late.



Trying to do as much as possible with the body on as room in the garage is an issue at the moment. Hoist shortly I think.

Here is what they are supplying Mike.

Setting an absolute cracking pace there Brett, looks fantastic. Love the wheels.

Can't believe you're running out of room in the cavern. The truck might have to live out in the frost for a while.

Nice work Pace people. Authenticity is critical in a build of this nature.

Ha Ha, see what you did there Dave....

The kids cars will go outside before my truck does and that is a debate we are having at the moment!

We will work out a garage run soon to have a look see if you like.

Cheers

Looks awesome BJ. Those wheels are beautiful. Are they vintage Wheels?

Curious why Pace don't do the pedal box cut out in house? Im assuming all the chassis components are laser\water cut so would think it would be an easier job to do it then.

Andrew, I think they are Trigo wheels mate. En route from the Gold Coast at the moment.
I too wonder why they don't do the cutout as they use the same pedal box across the range.
It's not a hard job to do anyway, measure twice, cut once.....

Cheers

Sooo much alloy..... so so cool.

Wheels look awesome, the raw look in the centre just sets these off well.

With regards to the pedal box and no cutout, perhaps this is so Pace builders just experience a little bit of dirty work on what appears to be absouletly pristine components/parts/chassis supplied.
