Here are 2 more pics showing what I did over the weekend.

http://www.clubcobra.com/photopost/s...cat=500&page=1

http://www.clubcobra.com/photopost/s...cat=500&page=1

Also found out where the gearbox T56 I was chaseing is so I may have some good news on that this week

I will be ordering all new bushes and joints for the front suspension this week, also getting caliper seal kits and pistons.

Also getting new diff mounting bushes for the falcon diff this week.

I will pull all the suspesion out this week to paint so I can reassemble next weekend.

What colour do you guys think I should paint the suspension parts, (remember body will be yellow and black) Shockies will probably be alloy and springs either red or blue. I will paint the sway bars the same colour as springs.

Oh man I am loveing finally haveing it all here.

OK Boxhead

Now I know where that LS engine come from. You should have moved the Commodore out of the shed before taking the photo. Not a bad donour vehicle you have there.



I guess you paint it any colour as long as its a `GM Holden colour.

Looks as if you are making real progress. Then again five mechanics working on it for you



Cheers

Looking good box. One word of advice - you might want to think about softening up the suspension as shown in your pics. It might ride a bit stiff as is !

She was most definatly just alittle stiff.

When I pushed it out onto the driveway it was balanceing on 2 opposite wheels for awhile.

All the suspension is out again and the bushes for the front have all been removed, I still havent decided on a color for the control arms but thinking about playing it safe and going with either black or aluminium silver kinda color.
