We had a joke about that yesterday



I might rock it this way for a little bit, probably for the Prarie City Rallysprint at the end of next month that I am hoping to make - but eventually I would like to throw it in the booth and paint the whole thing in the same white as the rest of the tub. I already have the paint booth offered to me, and my sponsor [bought me the seats and other safety equipment] is used to me running nice looking cars so I will doll it up eventually for his & her sake.

Oh hey it's been a minute

First off, screw photobucket - I'll update the picture eventually over to imgur

The car is running and [almost] driving. Just need tires and a steering wheel welded on.

I put the teeth gnashing, 80 hp/110 tq D24 diesel six cylinder from a 245 Diesel I bought [sold it to a friend for an LS swap] in it, mated to an M46 with a 4.11 1030 in the back.

That engine will go back out once I go through inspections, and in goes the real engine winking smiley

Last week I swapped out the axles and hubs for redrilled 5x114 stuff [with ARP studs pressed and welded in place]



The wheels are Method MR502'S, 15X7, et15, 67mm hub bore. Aside from the hub bore being 2mm too big they are PERFECT for a 240. Super convenient to have a reasonably priced [$160/wheel] readily available wheel option



Brake system is 100% plumbed now too
