Re: Lsvx-t

That would be epic!! They by no means need to be perfect. I will clean them up. No to mention I may need to "clearance" them anyway to fit with the charge air cooler anyway. Please let me know!

Re: Lsvx-t

Re: Lsvx-t

Been a while since I have had an update. Got some used rotas that'll be good for street tires. More or less wanted something cheap to put the car on the ground with. I am still in desperate need of...

Re: Lsvx-t

Well it wasn't incredibly hard per say but I did have to remove the factory fuel tank and already planned on a custom driveshaft. To do it in an otherwise stockish svx would be a huge waste of time...

Re: Lsvx-t

So, kind of came up with a better way to trim the brackets which I will document in the following set of pictures and instructions. Primary issue is that the brackets are meant for a tighter mounting...

Re: Lsvx-t

Most of my electrical work I can do is sorted. So I have begun final assembly. I do need to get my hot pipes wrapped but that's not too big of a deal.
