    So few bits have happened

    Since cam been done noticed she was using alot of oil (1.5L in 1100km). New stem seals weren't sealing lol. So they were replaced and while they were put in a smith bro's trunnion kit in the rockers. Very impressed. Valve train noise is much quiter.

    Also got bored with the original spoiler so off it came and on goes the proven good looking fibreglass senator spoiler. Also picked up a hsv boot for a small price and took the garnish off in excellent condition. Still trying to sell the unwanted lid lol.

    Have never heard of a trunnion kit. Glad you like the noise reduction though. I like the new rear end also

    Yeah mate of mine got me onto them as he bought a LS1 for a rebuild and all the rocker needle bearings were everywhere. Thought be cheap insurance with a high lift cam.

    Yeah also got some hsv finned flutes to go on aswell. Want to get them painted all blue like so.

    Nice ride man! The flutes should look good once painted and installed.
    Was it difficult fitting the new trunnions to the rockers?

    Trunnions were easy. Mate has a jig at his house. Pressed out/in within an hour.

    Painter said 250 if do all blue, or 400 if want to black out the mesh cause that will be a big bit of labour to mask up and paint. Im fussy and want em done HSV style with the black mesh part
