Thought it was time I put my new GQ in here.
This one is getting set up to tour oz in the near future.
I bought this car with a blown motor it did the rear main lost all oil pressure then spun a big end bearing.
It’s a 1990 td42
Fully rebuilt motor
Switzer turbo with water to air intercooler
21/2 inch exhaust
Hella rallye 4000 converted to hid
Hid head lights
dual batts with a 200ah gel battery
2x 40l waecos
alloy roof cage with 2x18w led lights each side






this is the motor before it went in the car with the turbo bolted up


engine in with ic plumbed up




water cooler for ic


this is a gauge pod i made


something to keep the beers cold or the pies hot


this is the mess i pulled out of it whin i got it


things to still do
2" lift kit
33" mt fcii's
make rear storage system to fit battery and fridges
get it dyno tuned
clear coat affected paint areas.

cheers
Roddo

finally sorted out my starting problems.
it was the starter motor and the aftermarket ryco fuel filter.
put the factory filter back on and cleaned the starter motor out and replaced the solinoid.
now it starts on the 1st or second turn everytime.

Taken a while?

when I saw it, it looked a lot worse and that wasn't very long ago at all!

Cooler looks good I like it man.

What was the cause of the starting issues?

Would love to see some pics of light output in the dark mate if you can be bothered. .. I'm looking at side lighting options for my rack now.
