    I agree...that is a good course of action.
    I would like to do something similar in the not too distant future. I've got a couple various similar oil leaks. At least I fixed my powwer steering, anti-freeze, and brake fluid leaks recently hahahah

    Hey all,

    Long time between updates, owing largely to this whole COVID-19 pandemic and changes in my work/lifestyle, and I've been mindful to not spend too much money on the project. As a result, the progress has halted a bit more than what I had forecasted, but I have managed to do the following in recent months:

    1. Fit the front coilovers, modify the rear coilovers, and fit;
    2. Remove battery, AFM/intake, coil, igniter, trans/throttle cables, fuel lines, radiator, p/s, a/c, driveshafts - pretty much everything in the way of me removing the engine, without the engine (yet);
    3. Removed the hubs and brakes, ready for overhaul.
    4. Other odds and ends to prep this beast ready for registration, such as wipers, speedo cable, bulbs, small things.

    Most of my spending money has gone towards camera/audio/lighting gear, putting a bit more effort into the YouTube channel than I possibly should, but it will hopefully be worthwhile.

    I'll keep chipping away with the project and try to be a bit more punctual with the updates.

    Hey everyone,

    The build presses on this weekend. I finally managed to grab myself an engine crane, and stand, and it will come out ideally tomorrow.

    Whilst the engine is out, the rest of the P/S and A/C will be removed, and I plan to manualise the steering rack.

    The engine will be treated to a full gasket and seal kit, as well as a new water pump, timing belt, and I'll try to source a belt suitable for running just the alternator.

    Aside from a few coats of hi-temp engine paint and a general clean up, there isn't much else I plan to do with it.

    Hopefully a couple of weeks and it'll be ready to go back in again.

    Then it is off for registration, as I want to be able to drive to and from the track, and the stripping/weight reduction/race-car mods will begin!
