Posted this in the U Pull It/Wreckers thread, but this is with pics.

2 RB Dizzys:

Camira EFI loom + sensors and ECU (Engine bay):

Image

2x pairs of Pedders Commodore rear springs:

Image

Also got myself the internal drum setup, and handbrake cable mounts to do the rear disc conversion on the soon-to-arrive Altra9 LSD. I'll buy brand new discs and calipers.

Got some pretty decent wagon doors and a spare tailgate from "Axeman" for $75. This prompted me to look into retrofitting door internals to replace the shitty cable winder system.

These arrived the other day, after a couple of months of waiting:

Image

Those are the original wheels on the high end PF60 Isuzu Gemini. They're only 13s, but they're original so suitable for concourse. They'll also tide me over on the replica until I can afford to buy the wheels I really want (15x7 +15 SSR SP1s).

Picked this lot up off Ozgem for $260 posted, for the track car:

Image

Paid for all the bits to do the front end in the wagon as well (wheel bearings, tie rods, rack ends, rack bushes, balljoints, and a tie down strap so that I can change the front springs and lower it a smidge).

Some stickers for the track car, also got a small "Meatball" Japanese Zero fighter decal for my helmet:

Image

Oh, and here's a pic of those Koni shocks I bought, just because they're so damn cool!

Nice one with the delco :) Give us a yell if you want when your ready to do that!

I did a g200w with coilpacks in a Bellett GT on delco the other week. hes just finishing sorting out the teething problems now, but the 4 cylinder coil packs are proven :)

Awesome sauce. Yeah I've got no idea exactly when I'll want to do it, and doubtless I haven't got every last bit needed, but I'm a lot further along now.

Quick question, the loom and ECU came from an auto. Does that matter? Didn't think to check once I started pulling one out.

Nope doesnt matter. There is a wire that runs down to auto to lock out the starter when its in drive, but as part of the conversion you remove that wire, and remove a couple of the other wires that go up to the dash - Air con request and ALDL - the slow factory data port (you mod the ECU and get a higher speed USB port straight on the side of it instead).

Nothing quite exciting as everyone else's, but I got this:

Edit: It's not a stolen one lol. I think he said he knows a place that makes them up and they just paint the whatever you want on it.
