Here are a few photos of the mounts I made for mock up. Will make proper ones after gearbox mounting is sorted.

My overkill gearbox mount....











Looks like something from Tron! :D

Bolted in, not yet welded onto rail. It clears where the leg of the driver would be, but it seems very big... I might gusset it from the bottom and remove the upper beam... hmmmm

Uncomfortably, on the seat... It is actually out of the way, but I'm going to trim it down anyway. :P

Got the rotors on the 'Tina, and then the BA 16" wheels. It looks rediculous!

The early commo brakes I had to fit for the conversion to 5 stud wouldn't work, so I had to resort to BA falcon 2 piston. :P
Such a shame- LOL

Will get pics after i get the mounts made and all is installed!

I got stuck into the floor fan this arvo, and knocked most of it on the head...







Just have to finish the welding off and then I'll be hitting the trans tunnel.
