    Great story Michael, hope that it doesn't take you too long to get things sorted and you can get out and enjoy it, is the green a factory colour as I don't remember ever seeing one that colour, cheers Greg

    It is a factory colour ,in twin cabs their were four greens in Aus one 2wd and three Syncros the 2wd was muller and mullers and they fitted the WBX flat six motor, I only know of one other around in QLD atm
    I may be wrong as my resources were given to me many years ago when I first saw a green one.
    It would be great if there was a register to find out how many utes and there are still around as they don't seem to come around much.
    Last week there was a single cab Syncro for sale.

    A bit of an update on the Money Pit
    Well Its Been a while the progress is moving a bit slower then I like yet today I went for a good drive just to make me feel better about the project.
    I have found the quality of tradesman these days not up to my standards , I could go on yet I don't like to talk people and companies down, Found O/S suppliers far more accommodating then Aussie suppliers a real shame.
    Work to date.
    New head gaskets ,engine mountes ,hi torque starter, all new cvs ,wheel bearings ,bushings, shocks, ball joints and tie rods.
    Fitted, Power steering , Repaired A/C, New trim, Magnaflow exhaust, ecu chip , power mirrors , big shot shifter, head light upgrade , wheels recond ,new tyres.

    The VVDS one?

    Did you put or thinking of putting 1.4 ratio rockers on?

    I have done this mid to my T3 and very happy with results.

    Barry I don't know yet I have Big valve heads and mod cam and the bus pulls hard now any more grunt may be just spending money for something I don't need.

    Thanks Barry the Chip came from Boris and the doors and card were done by someone recommended by Phil, The trim was not what I asked for yet the price was right, I think he smokes too much. He did the seats in leather and the door cards in vinyl.
    As for the rockers I may look at that down the track with the manispeed set up that is still in development as I have Marco,s Injectors and his quality seems good.
