Started running the lines to the shockwaves. Need to get a few more fittings. I will also get two braided lines for the front shocks as these are mounted upside down so the fitting g is on the bottom of the strut.

Playing around with airlines. Managed to
run all lines inside the vehicle from the boot along the top of the tail shaft hump and out either side existing inside the front guards. Wiring will take the same route.

Dakota gauges are on their way from the good old USA, almost 5 month wait but they will be worth it.

Awesome work TAZ !!!

It some ways getting it on all fours is a bit of a milestone !!!

It will look superb and probably ride better than most cars of today.

5 months wait to get these gauges. I reckon they will look great once mounted.

Okay, time to get some work done on the car. Gauges are now mounted to the dash. Plan is to get all the wiring and air suspension operational over the next week. Wish me luck.

I am hoping to get some wiring sorted on the rattler this week as well - not my favourite job :roll: :roll:
