Got some work done on the girl last night..

After riding in a friends rx7 I decided my view was a little crowded.. and I liked the stock cluster.. so I combined the 2 setups..

A mate gave me a spare cluster to experiment with.. is t perfect but I like the way it turned out.. the view is a little less cluttered even though it has the same amount of gauges etc

I also swapped the gear from the fd speed sender onto an fb one with a small amount of modification to the shaft, and cables.. I now have a working speedometer but am yet to see how accurate it is

next up as we head into winter months... Ford 31spline 8.8 rear end... in the process of stripping it down, chipping off the rust flaking, cleaning it up, then I will shorten it to fit... trying to decide the route for brakes etc... part of me as a machinist wants to make all my own stuff... I need all the brackets for suspension remade and welded, custom caliper brackets made to run stock brakes... grannys speed shop over here does these rears, they also sell all the stuff I need... would cost me around $600 to have all the parts for me to just weld it on... but I am replacing the ebay intercooler that came with the motor for a Treadstone one, and refitting my radiator back to normal upright, and upgrading the fans.. so the less money I throw out the better...
