Mean.

As for rear suspension adjustability, I spotted these today, they look scarily like they might fit, I have asked about the dimensions of the spring.

the windscreen is now fitted using black sikaflex and a lot of fluffing about!

next came a trial fit of the intercooler and bumper before fitting the intercoolerImage
thats where i stand at the moment,thankfully with all this rain ime off work atleast for tomorrow and hopefully the rest of the year... so i expect a fair bit more progress soon. with any luck the dash will go back in tomorrow followed by all the trims and crap that was being held up by the windscreens absence.
ive done an oil change and purchased a new battery.tomorrow i hope to get out to the exhaust shop so i can replace the flange that i pinched for my hilux then weld the exhaust back up etc etc...more soon matt

9in angle grinder to remove the AC bracket? it unbolts think you need to find a slightly shorter bolt for the alternator bracket though.

There shouldn't be any need to cut it.
Here's my one http://picasaweb.google.com/mshallcrass/AcBracket#
It unbolted without any problems.

ITS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
thats right folks after 2 years or so i turned the key on the t2r and after about 10 seconds it fired up no worries.
i dont know weather its excitement or carbon monoxide poisoning but i feel a little jitterey right now lol.

as i haven't updated for a while ile fill you guys in a bit.
the dash and cluster is all in and hooked up.
the computer is back in.
obviously the intercooler is all plumbed up.
etc etc ile take and post some pics as soon as i get a chance.
i think that the smoke should have cleared so ime going back down to hook up my exhaust then at the very least i can direct the gasses toward the door and not the back of the firewall.
