It's great to hear that your car is finally on the road in HK, Paul. Although if it were still in the garage, I would have liked to hear these guys call out "Galant VR-4!"

HK Parking Garage Tour

You do park in that garage, right?

Cheers,

Well finished a few more things for Paul for the last big shipment


B pillars and the extra wide top rails are now in suede, C's will be next week the areas around the windows are to deep and the material wants to bunch up.


Paul brought over a ashtray to cut the center out in for his plx air fuel ratio gauge, crap bakelite plastics cracks and explodes the first sign of chatter from the mill so after 4 or 5 attempts .....I made a billet ashtray insert.

still needs a little more work but everything fits nicely.

I am not sure what to do with a hacked up center console that arrived at my doorstep.

That can I do with this?

On the phone front, I just can't get my cousin to do anything with it. He is just swamped. Sorry about that.

Get with me on what you want/need for this center unit.

Again, sorry.

Curtis: You have an ETA on when all that will ship...I need to get Paul a few things, and would be best served to have it all ship at once.....PAUL? What all do we want to order?

Cool I'll ship everything to you and you can combine.

Man going to be soon, I have the lumber for the crate as well as some super heavy duty honeycomb boxes, but have to make space in the shop for the crate and boxes to put everything in.

The c pillars and other stuff went to the upholstery shop this morning and he said he would try to get it done this week. I have to check my list on any other thing to build and get it done and ship all at once.......cause the wife wants the sunporch back.

More toys
C pillars, Paul my buddy told me this is the last set he'll ever think about doing. There each 3 pieces of cloth and had to be fitted and formed, took him a few hours on each.


Center console , shift boot and e brake handle all in suede. Yes its a mirror image so it will work on the right hand drive e brake handle


Then there's this hunk of shit, two days in the building, I'll have to drag it outside with the mower after its filled. Its like 4.5 x 6 x 4 high. Yes there's about that much here folks, rear bumper will fit on the bottom by the large box then the front push bar and inter support will go on top. You know I can't figure out were all this stuff will fit on the car....I sent 3 pallets then there's the stuff from Alex and Aaron.

I use to have a shop end of my garage.

Wow Paul,

I just spent 1 hour reading this post.. cool build indeed!

Now some questions:

What brand lcd screen are you using? do you have a link. I want something to run my virtual dash on.
Rear diff - lsd, what mods did you need to do to get this to work? any work required on the axles / shafts?

The noise from your drivetrain. Are you still experiencing it?
I have solved about 80% of the noise on mine. I wonder if the alloy tail shaft has anything to do with it. Or the lsd's.

How is she doing now? Holset bolted up yet?

Bazeng,

The company I am using for LCDs is this one click. I have a butchered centre console that I sent to Terry that I need to get him to forward to them. Basically they are going to find me the largest transflective touchscreen panel they can that will fit in the standard radio bezel aperture and then build me a custom aluminium bezel for the screen to fix it there. If you are interested I can let you know details after I get Terry to send them the console.

All you need for the rear LSD is JDM axle cups for the diff body. I would think you could get those over your neck of the woods no problem. Kaaz, Cusco and ATS all use the standard JDM clutch plate diff cups and they fit JDM axles.

Drivetrain noise is nothing more than vibration caused from the solid rear subframe mounts. Alex welded mine up when he did the rear end for me. He's a little more hardcore than me! I think I'm going to get those plates cut out and reinstall rubber or Delrin bushings, that should be the end of that noise!

Holset isn't in. I'm still having teething problems. I cannot figure out right now if I am going to need to swap pins in the ECU harness or get a 92 harness. The car won't run right with the DSMLink. It could be a JDM/USDM issue or it could be a '90 ECU harness issue as my car is a 90. It is really bugging me right now because if I can't figure out how to run the car on the Link I don't really have any way to swap in the injectors and 3G MAS. Both of those have to be setup before I can realistically slap the Holset on.

Cheeky, i had the same problem as you before. I actually have a jdm ECU and Engine, had to buy a USDM 2g ECU so i can use dsmlink. what exactly are you having problems with? you dont have to change the entire wiring harness. Im assuming that your using a USDM ECU too right? coz as far as i know, DSMLink wont run on JDM ECU's that is why i had to ask thomas to source out a USDM ECU for me so that i can use his product.

What i did was find some connectors that will clip right on the ECU. Found some on the N/A lancers (evo 1-3 body). Then just follow the Pinout diagram for your ECU which can be found on the DSMlink forums. They have a pinout diagram for 1g and for 2g. If you have a 2g ECU, dont forget to do the plug wire swap conversion. If youre running COP set up, you can do the swap at the ECU side.

Hope this helps.

Also, an update on the LCD progress would be great too!

Which size suits our cars?
I'm thinking of doing something similar.
