:(

The bonded rubber harmonic balancer pulley sheared off of the balancer and took out the serp belt, so now I have to replace the balancer which means another weeks delay in doing other stuff.

:(

Bugger re the balancer mate.

The door handles are a great mod, and it is surprising how much it changes the look of the car.

Got the auto serviced, it was definately filthy inside but the hard shifts are still a random occurance so I dunno

Nothing else really, was going to get the exhaust done but lack of funds due to a couple of bills meant that isn't until next weekend. I wired up the rear speakers, seeing as the wires weren't there I had to run some cable under the carpet :roll:

Got a spare EB fuel door and one off of a EF and got it to sit right, will have to see if the wire is in the loom for the solenoid otherwise thats another wire I'll have to run :( but yeah once I have the solenoid sorted I'll drop the fuel door and door handles into a beaters and get them to give all five items a paint.

Pity about the shifts. Oh well you'll find it. I'm also about to do the fuel door mod. :)

Well anyway, its running great now that the fuel pressure regulator has been changed over... still is stiff between gearchanges, but no more fuel leaks and its running nice.

Oh and on tuesday I got a call about the car from the guys who were putting in the fuel pressure regulator and it was to the effect of "yeah the right hand front strut is stuck, its not our fault" so I picked up the car and drove away slowly thinking "s**t another thing I'll have to shell out for" and clunk it came unstuck... however the strut is now damaged as it bounces around when I hit bumps. I'll put it on the list of things to do.

:roll:

Uhm, got the solenoid for the fuel filler flap so I'm going to wire that up tommorow.

To do list (in order)
Colour Matched Door handles and EL Fuel filler flap.
Finish putting in the EF Interior and get it steam cleaned.
Exhaust plus tip.
Colour Matched Bumper Bars and a full buff.

At this point it will pretty much be done except for these last few items.

Sump gasket or front main seal may be seeping oil, I'm keeping an eye on it.
New set of front struts and swaybar rubbers.
New steering wheel?
18" Mags and tyres.
