    mine is the same as your except with the bonnet - tbh I think it adds so much, always get heaps of compliments too which is nice for a 15 going on 16 year old car :) monaro porn below for your perusal.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the coupe tbh - the front and rear bars weren't the nicest.

    So I've seen a few posts on threads that aren't exactly/ strictly speaking build related but but beers ,appreciating cars , working on cars , fixing cars ,mates around cars = none of these are always a good idea but = disaster but always also go hand in hand = good times .
    So here's one santa came early this year

    First brew = not bad at all / even if I do say so myself and if it's as I calculated 4.5% then all the the commercial brewers lie and they're nowhere near the % they say they are.
    If you don't try to replicate your favorite commercial beer and you like your craft beer or as my misses likes to say designer beer and like to experiment you'll like this . I'm looking forward to to this = it's going to be fun.

    Back in August , probably two or three weeks after I did the FWD bushes in the rear K frame I decided to to get a Harrop sports diff cover and it's been sitting hear waiting for me to get I finger out , which I did today. Removed old cover and fitted new one , oil was way overdue on changing as well.
    Took it for a quick spin after and all seems good, although I'm going to book it in to get K frame and wheel alignments checked.
    Here's a few photos

    Just got back from a week away , used monaro to go visit sister and her family and mum in south east QLD for Christmas , also stayed in Coffs Harbour for two nights on way back.
    Dam it's so easy to overtake slower cars in this thing.
    Brother in law drove it, he's got a ba falcon xr6 , what surprised me is he said xr6 was floaty in steering and handling compared to the monaro.
    I had washed it then clay bared and waxed it the week before I went which I recon was a good move because even though I went through a few showers and it was parked outside at mums and got rained on , it was still looking surprisingly clean this morning.

    Bit different now but , it does need a wash , quite alot of light rain and lots of traffic on the Pacific Hwy . Dam that's boring road with quite a lot of clowns on it.
