Well it has been 4 months and I do miss it!
apparently it still runs.
though leaking some funky green stuff from somewhere.
I have a new block, new spool rods, and ARP bolts.
Will probably build a turbo version so pistons to be determined, and it will need new valves across the board, will probably reduce seat pressure a bit to as these are recessing into the seats, so head needs a re-build.
but what country to do it in!

Great to see this is still in your hands, so to speak, if you need somewhere to keep it I can make room for it in Tassie while you're not about ;)

Good luck with the rebuild!

Good luck getting out of the shed that it is currently in. I think even GTP will have trouble :D

that it does, it starts and drives so is quickly moved when/if I get to work on mine.

Not that mine gets a look in at the moment. #-o

Stumbled across the thread today. Good reading. Almost a complete rebuild. I think you should add the AWD decals back onto the doors.

Yes I can.
Doesn't ever get wet. Its over the original paint so even if it soaks up water it should last quite some time.
Plus its literally on the other side of the world.
