    Started work on the VH today,
    Got the motor all ready to come out now, so tomorrow I'll whip out the gear box then, hopefully during the week I can borrow an engine crane to get the thing out.

    Thanks guys, The interior is defintly the mintest part of the car. Completly stripped it today and cleaned everything. Doesn't have any stains or anything. But then again, its only done 71000kms. The bonnet and roof have suffered from a bit of paint fade and some goon has sprayed under body spray crap right through the engine bay. It's an absoulte mission to get off. Motor and trans is all ready to come out now so just gotta borrow an engine crane. Just working on getting parts out of the VN ready to swap over eg, Fuel tank, K-frame ect at the moment

    Got a bit done yesterday after work, Got the heads back on the 304 and the inlet manifold. Also got round to painting my grey grille, black. I reckon it looks a heap better.

    Heres a pic of the interior when I had it stripped.

    Also, whats your thoughts on getting rid of the sound deading? Is it worth it?


    And a pic of the grille,

    love the grille, love the engine, love the interior :D

    and for the amount of work, i personally think getting rid of the sound deadening is a HUGE waste of time. HHHHUUUUUUGGGGGGGEEEEE waste

    It took hours, Probably pointless but who cares. Looked like absolute sh*t before, all greasy and yuck.
