Other stuff: Phantom Mica 2-pak paint; Holden Commodore wiper motor, hidden behind firewall; Completely rewired in custom labelled "Raychem" aircraft wiring (hidden); Custom-made relay/fuse panel located under dashboard; 120amp chrome alternator; Battery (spiral-cell) relocated to the boot; All fuel lines (including tank pick-up) replaced with aircraft-spec braided hoses or aluminium tube, and anodised fittings; Summit electric fuel pump and regulator; Aluminium radiator with twin 10" electric fans.
All work and modifications (other than the paint and transmission rebuild) were carried out by me.
