Yep. Knocked out the starter motor solenoid wire when I was doing the manifold air temp connector extensionification... cranks over now :D but doesn't fire :( but its okay because its the sound that happens when the timing is way out :D

Anywho, put on the serpentine belt and the main line for the powersteering pump so thats done.

Got my EF door handles, the colours not the same but damn its close to C**k... might run them as they are for now and get them done when the door mirrors and the bumpers are done.

Also got my "EL ECU" which is an EF ecu, going to contact the guy on ebay.

The worst thing is this guy is a wrecker, surely he should at least know the basic models before saying its from this or that.

Hey Mate

It won't fire until you wire in the smartlock module bypass.

Then it should be good to go by the sounds of things.

Fingers crossed for ya.

Hey all, this is the engine bay all mocked up.

Still have to install that thermofan switch kit, work out how the EF/EL vacuum attaches to the behind the dash vacuum, bolt up the exhaust and get the timing done on it... at least it cranks now :D

Tommorow I'm doing the thermofan kit and looking closer at the vacuum.

On monday my ecu is arriving from BenJ and so is the guy with my interior, not going to fit the EF seats yet (don't have a welder) and the door trims look like a project I could do next weekend but they're gli so I don't know what differences will be from the doortrim guide... but yeah monday I'm putting in an EF carpet, EF kickpanels, EF scuffplates, EF A pillar trims etc.

LOL reminds me of my engine bay but in blue.

Yep ECU is in the mail, so fingers crossed by Monday night it should be running.

Well imitation is the greatest form of flattery :wink:

Don't quite know if monday will be the day it starts but heres hoping, because I don't have a timing light... I'll probably send it back down to autoleaders and get them to do a service on it and get it started.

Okay, half finished the thermoswitch install... Wired in the smartlock bypass, just got to finish wiring up the thermoswitch and then I can send it down to get tuned and then hopefully it'll start :D

Also the ecu from BenJ arrived and thats in.

I bought a complete EF interior off of ebay.
Going to pull out my seats, the driver side kickpanel, scuff plates, centre console and install the EL carpet I have here then replace the scuff plates, kick panels plus rear seat and bolsters with that from the EF stock.

The gli door trims almost look like they'll go straight in.

Hmm, so the car the door trims came out of had electric mirrors, I dont.
Do I need to install the high series harness and module to make use of some electric mirrors? (with a suitable modifcation to suit the EF/EL mirror switch of course)

If so I might just remove the adjusting handles and move them by hand until I can be bothered doing that :p

Rather than install a complete loom, you could just get the ends of each loom and then make your own. Just base it on the wiring diagram and you should be able to work it out.
