I know the photos are a bit back to front but being only aloud 15 images per post stuffed me up

Truck is now at my work (living low customs) looking like this
http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p189/twiggz_trux/IMG_6342.jpg


Getting ready to put a V8 in it, as i dragged through 2 complete wiring looms for the stock motor and cant find a wiring diagram anywhere for it, so why not motor swap it?

tidy up the engine bay paint it,
paint the motor
and get ready to do the interior.
and fix a few things up that im not happy with
and drive the fucking thing
hopefully should be Finished around march

Hey man big huge fan of ur truck i own a dual myself just wondering im a boilermaker from my point of view what is the RHS 4 or do been trying to work it out anyway love ur truck im going crazy on mine when i get it off defect.

wicked truck man...someting ive always looked up to....hopefully mine will look something like that when its all done (also have a 4door).

2 questions - what v8 are you goign with
- got any more pics/info on rear link set up?

twiggz

The RHS in the sills im guessing your talking about??

Its so i can drag, its 5mm thick.
If you notice once you cut into your original sills they go all nice and soft and easy to damage, so we put 5mm thick box in there, do it on all the trucks we bodydrop that have square sills.

The V8 is out of a Holden Commodore VS model 1996/97 model i believe.

Nothing to flash but tidy's the engine bay up a fair bit and they're a common motor with alot of add ons for later on down the track if i take it that way....

What did you want to know about the rear setup exactly???

Its a MacDonald brothers racing triangulated fourlink, it works... could be better though, the arms are abit short for the extension done to the truck...
