big thanks to jojo,he the man!

so...some shit went down yesterday!
started with this,one perfectly good sprinter...

and one poor old panno van

jojo came around,said he's donate some of his time to me as he wanted to be part of the badest panno ever to be made!lol
so we flipped a coin,i had a gze sitting there and i had the sprinter with 4agte,couldnt decide which one i wanted to use in panno
the poor 86 lost :(


big mess made

panno sees first bit of daylight in ages

heart transplant

done a little bit on this today...
got new turbo and exaust gaskets and bolted on all the turbo bits and oil lines..
thats about it,,lol


decided to go with a microtech lt10 so gunna order that tomorrow.they seem to be good value for money,
plus was talking to one of the local tuners and the reckoned microtechs were great..
this will be a year off the road on august so need to rego it before then,so setting that as a deadline for this to be driving..see how it goes
picked up a pair of lonchamps lastnight,14x8 a type..looking for a wide pair for the rear now

picked up a hks timing belt,think i have a pair of hks cam gears sorted too so should look good under the clear cover
