Good to hear, well done on wiring, everytime i think of wiring makes me want to cry ( i like wiring but despise it)

jitb, just noticed, you have another vent for passenger, i think Oz (E-Spec) models have it all on center thats all

Just about there!! Dash fascia/gauge surround is proving to be a bit of a drama as most of the mounting pins were broken and there is no hope a getting another one from the wreckers,so hubby's working on a fix for that so it will hopefully sit secure.

Had a quick wash, headlights are out to be cleaned and polished.

Hi, thanks every1 for the comments. Just a few fiddly things left to do now, will be doing a roadworthy next week (15th/16th) so will update then, should pass easily, we hope!!! Hubby took the timing cover off and gave her a degrease, had a bit of build up but all looks to be good condition(timing belt/pulleys:eg)

there will be a coolant pipe going to the thermostat from the top.... there will be a couple small coolant lines as well.

the oil most likely coming from the crank oil seal, easy to do once you get main sprocket out. but its a fiddly job.
