For those who were curious, it appears the lifter fell into the catalytic converter. It was taken off today and we heard it rattling around inside it. :-D Bullet dodged. :D

I think I have more chance of pushing diarrhoea up a hill with a stick. LOL.

Or to quote George: "Somehow, I don't think so".

If its back together in time though, it'll definitely be there the Friday after though. :-D

Good to see the head is all fitted up, i remember George telling me about it a while ago. Shame to hear about the head not being in the condition the guy said it would be in though, those situations are very annoying. Good thing you guys got things checked before bolting it on hey.

Nice pick up with the wheel too. Should be a very nice replacement for the stock one :wink:

Feels like a step back was taken today though. LOL.
When we got home from work today, George and I attacked the heater core problem. Took about 45 minutes to get the dash out, then another half an hour at least to get the heater box out. Before anyone mentions the nuts in the engine bay, they had been removed right after the head was taken off; the box was simply jammed in place. When it was finally removed and opened, the thin had leaves and s**t everywhere in it. Thought the whole carpet was going to be covered LOL.

After some grumbling from George about it not being a simple job, some of it really quite frustrated, my car is now without a dashboard, console, heater box or shifter knob. No, none of them are broken, but there was no way they were going to be put back in this evening. George is cranky because the whole job is taking longer than he thought it would, and he seems to think that since he promised that it wouldn't take this long, that he's letting me down somehow by not having it done yet. I'm not the least bit disappointed, at least I'm not left holding a workshop manual and having no idea where to start... That'll be for when I change the carpet and put the EL console in hehehe.

Anyway, thats where it all at as of 7:30 this evening. I don't expect any work to be done on this before the weekend now, a break is needed before car parts get broken. :)

You're right, it is butt ugly. If there was such a thing as an ED console which had beverage holders in it, I would pay through the nose for it. However, such a console doesn't exist, and I can't afford all the bits and bobs that go with the dash change, so for now at least, it will have to be ED dash with EL console.. I've no doubt I'll get sick of the bits jutting out and will probably investigate doing the swap when I can afford it though. :-D

if your willing to re locate your power window switches? a au console will look better and has a better cup holder than an el console..

there was another member on here who grafted the end of the EB/ED console to the EL console, but there was alot of effort involved there, the other way i was going to go was to chop it at a lower level and fill in the gaps (when you get the console you will see the gaps i mean) but then i decided in one of my cars ill be going EL loom and dash so might aswell just save it, if you use micros switches ot re-locate the switches you can use the AU console, much neater and suits the interior IMO

If all goes to the evil plan , the power window switches wont be a problem.
The climate control module will be but as that will be heading towards a certain white XR8..............
