Hey mate

I must admit that was such an exciting build thread! Was so eager to continue reading it, it was like a book! :D As the other guys said, hopefully you have some more updates.

Love your seats by the way. I would love to get some BA seats in my Ghi. Was there much modding involved??

Cheers

Awsome read, the ute is insane. Great to see such a well thought out build and a result which reflects the effort you put in!

Yeah, I've really been quite lazy!! Hmmm.... not many updates since Motorvation. Trying to save money atm, so ute is hibernating in the shed!! Need to pull my finger out and finish door cards off and get it back to the strip!!

I've read through this twice now lol. The ute is bloody epic! That interior really looks good, much better than crappy X series dash. I must say the interior has given me a lot of inspiration for my old XG :D Well bloody done, best XH I've seen.

Awesome read of your journey for car enthusiasts. the ute looks magic. Great to see the highs and lows of a project with lots of technical data thrown in.

Couldnt get enough of this thread... Its turned out something awesome, and looks the goods. Bit too much red for me personally, but hey, gos faster, right?
Ive got an xg im working on at moment, so was interesting to see what youve done, too many cool mods to single out just one...
When (if) I ever finish it, would love to charge down a 1/4 next to you...

I finally sorted the vibration issues in the driveline - post Motorvation 27 in Jan.

Twisted Left Axel, Twisted Slip Yoke, Re-balance of tailshaft... :P She's all back to brand new again - thanks to Phil @ Final Drive in Perth

She's all good now, went to the Motorplex last Wed night to give it a run. Still room for improvement, so will keep practicing!! I really don't want to destroy my box, so I try to be nice on the gear changes :D

Contact this dude http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PRE-AU-FORD- ... 2ec7ebeffc

Not the same as mine, (I got 19's). I bought mine elsewhere, but this dude should either have them or know where to get them

Just stumbled across this thread and was transfixed, read it from start to finish. You've done an incredible job mate, gotta be one of the finest utes i've ever seen. Kudos to ya! What model are those seats from? and were they a straight bolt in? I do hope you continue to post updates. cheers.
