Your list is pretty much same as mine. 

I sorted my bar mounts on the weekend. 

Ive also ordered some seatbelts. I’ll let you know part number once they’re in and working etc

Nice one mate, she looks awesome! The Hotwires suit it really well and the brightwork is excellent. 

Keep up the good stuff.

Cheers Jono, most likely to go for the ones I've already bought as it'd be a shame to see them go to waste. Also, they're retractable which I don't mind. But that said, it'd definitely be a good plan B!

What seat belt brand did you guys get? Any comments on fitment and quality?

I got a set of ""universal'' retractable seat-belts. Fitment is a zero, but I will be making brackets so that mine will work. Quality looks great, good quality sash and the buckles etc all look and work as they should!

G'day again everyone, time for another update.

Exhaust is now complete, and sounding great. 
I got a permit to drive the car to my mate's house to get it done, which was a good night in itself.
My friend Joel and I had the intention to complete it together one weekend, but unfortunately he forgot to pick up the parts to build it on the Friday. 
Even worse so, I had to attend TAFE at the northern end of my state and couldn't swing by after work each day to come help.
But, nonetheless I managed to get a bit done on that weekend. 


I replaced the original radiator with a dual core aluminium one from Worley, on eBay. That eliminated the problem of my alternator running wayyy too close to the bottom radiator hose. Now, with a 90degree-ish bend to keep it up and out of the way. Plus, it looks nice and shiny. Bonus!


The exhaust itself is 2 inch all the way to the muffler, and then a 2 1/4 inch tip, because apparently it looks tougher according to Joel! no complaints from me, either. 
I really do like the sound of it, too. 

I have also (hopefully) sourced a set of seat-belts from a KE20, ready for rego. Yet to fix my front bumper mounts, but shouldn't stop rego. 
Sounding good, looking good, happy days. 
I'll let the photos do the speaking!

Your engines in back to front!  I’ve heard of uprighting but that’s ridiculous.
