Yesterday was a clean and the obvious thing you do when you get something your happy about putt past your mates and pull in for a quick social visit.
Today was 2 new rear tyres, backs on the fronts, fronts on the backs.
Still looking for rims so no need to do the lot at once. I’ll be back there next R&R lol
Then back again after she’s painted and I’ve found some rims.....
Also any one know of anyone that has a Monaro bonnet for a VT VU VX, colour doesnt matter getting painted next R&R

Easter stay at home day 3- interior vacuum and a decent seat and dash clean. More blatant product placement. That’s it this weekend might mow the grass tomorrow

Changed the Oxy sensor out that had been throwing up a code now and then on the SS.
Noticed it somehow has a possible extra muffler in 1 side only just after that oxy sensor

And realised I now need bonnet struts for 2 cars.

Damn that looks nice. Good job mate!

I'm tossing up the idea with going with a HSV triple dash pod. I want to install Oil pressure, Vac/Boost (will SC eventually) and AFR gauges into a blank 3 pod gauge housing. Since i've got an aftermarket head unit, the SID isn't working. I know I can get it reflashed, but the idea of having the triple gauge appeals to the 12-yo Ricer in me. haha.

Intake spacer testing is going well too. Bimodals are still working like a treat, also considering doing a Baille tip swap or perhaps getting slightly bigger tips.

Checked to see if the garage dust collectors were still there. They were, just quietly rusting away due to lack of use. Petrol is cheap and nowhere to go.
Nearly a month now without a good drive, thanks to self isolation, and now 'stay at home'.

One of the few upsides about still being in an essential industry (Power).
No Traffic and Cheap fuel makes for a cruisy run even if the depot is a 180km round trip
Ended up having all 3 out in the past week to give them a run.
The Tunnels and the sound of the S/C V8 topped off the Thursday.

Me and me mate were talking about the extra three gauges today...... depending what you have you may have them coming down the pillar or centre dash or if you have old school muscle they may be outside the cab...... it looks great to people who don’t know ****

Re erect your dash to suit your needs. Extra gauges are just flashy

Did... Did you just reply to your own comment?

I digress, i'm considering my options here. I'm tossing up whether or not to go with AFR/Boost-Vac/Oil pressure using AEM Gauges or going with Boost-Vac/ Oil Pressure/Volts using Defi gauges. I was going to go with SAAS but I read all kinds of horror stories with their units.

I'm leaning towards the AEMs because they have the option to have Silver rings on the outside, and that'll more closely match the interior to OEM spec. Only issue is _where_ i'd stick the AFR gauge. Maybe at the centre of the cross pipe I plan on installing?
