    Currently trouble shooting, and waiting for final inspection
    Test runs up and down the yard have been a feature of the last few Sunday afternoons

    Outstanding
    Hood lining and cover strips
    Vertical cover strips adjacent to the windscreen
    Saddle bags for the underfloor cavity created by the channel
    Mats for the floor (patterns made)
    Insulation on the leading area of the foot well/firewall

    In the last few weeks it's been hard to wipe the smile from my face when standing in the shed

    Thanks to all that have helped over the last three and half years with advice, ideas, support, specific tools and finding those missing parts.
    Special thanks to Di for without her support I would never have got this far.

    So the RTA will be fine with the rear screen? They wont be all concerned with you getting some thing in your eye or your cigarette buts being sucked out and heaven knows it may cause an explosion around your fuel tank? Or....... Perhaps you've eliminated an exit to your vehicle in the event of an accident lol (But wait officer; Ive also eliminated the potential of broken glass being airborne in the event of said accident also?!) :D

    Nah, Joking aside. Looks like it'll turn heads for sure Man. Solid build.

    Truck passed final inspection with the TAC last Saturday
    Full LH10 rego last Monday
    Have had a few drives this week late at night trying to sort out some issues with engine temp
    Removed the thermostat, the ducting under the radiator also doesn't seem to be helping - turbulence or wind shear - unsure

    Bum end also travelling further than expected especially under acceleration/braking (diff wants to rotate lessening the clearance between tailshaft and chassis)
    Considering adding additional links adjacent to the rear springs + some form of stop

    Experimenting with tyre pressures as well as the duals want to overdrive the front.
    Its a handful

    It's been awhile since any activity, but I'm gonna shoot this question to you and hope it makes it all the way there from South Texas!! How did you mount that original horn button to an aftermarket steering wheel?? I have the same wheel and button and that looks awesome, so I thought maybe I'd copy it from you!!!

    Thanks
    Not too hard to mount.
    Cut a small adaptor plate out of 6mm (1/4") aluminium to the shape of button
    Sanded the areas adjacent to the spokes to get it to fit flat
    Polished the edges

    The adaptor has three countersunk holes for mounting the adaptor + wheel to the steering boss
    It also has three small slots to pick up the tags at the back of the horn button
    The horn button is a press fit to the adaptor plate

    Trial and error with the press fit.
    As you can see in the one photo there are two adaptors - only one is used (the other was from me not correctly aligning the wheel at initial setup as I don't have a spline - I opted to scotch key my steering boss to the shortened shaft)

    Hope this helps
