SA GTV6 2.5 restoration and few minor mods !

With the oldest GTV6 nearing 40 years in service, a forum to document projects and restoration seems sensible.

My GTV has only one coat of paint I will 600 wet paper rub it down and then give it 3 coats of paint.
I have made a spray booth in my shed which keeps the dust and insects away. :)

Hope you're all safe with the situation in Oz at the moment.

Hi Kev,
Yes I am one of the lucky ones away from the fires but we have a lot of smoke.

I have never seen it so bad as its now.

They stated days ago that 1/4 of the state of Victoria was on fire.

Very scary.

A lot of animals have been killed. :cry:

Hi Alfaaa1,as we have only seen bits and pieces of pics of your build and was thinking if you have time to repost from the beginning on new thread but in this section . Must say you have done an amazing job on the engine as well . Would do it justice and guys who have not seen it from beginning can see your hard work :)
I don’t have anything new on my side apart from changing ECU on my track car and doing interior mods over winter( UK ) ... however I am heading to sunny SA in the next week to finish off my late dads Junior and clock a few miles !
This was the build
