    Yeah I feel like getting the motor in is the easiest part and with it being a Nissan motor there is no wondering if it will fit. I think plumbing up everything is gonna be the hardest part. Like the A/C and what not.

    Yeah gonna Label the shit out of everything. Because it’s gonna be a long build so I’ll forget

    Nah that's the fun part mate and you'll learn heaps!

    Take your time, get a decent torque wrench, follow the manual, label everything and enjoy!

    Any brands for torque wrenches
    Also any ideas for labelling and sorting, a trip to Bunnings is in order.

    I've Just got a kinchrome one which works fine for most stuff. If you want to do it nice get a small one too for doing smaller stuff under 50nm ish. Not sure about the harmonic balancer might need a big boy for the nut on that they're pretty crazy tight everything else will be right.

    When i did the body swap i just used a heap of zip lock bags labeled clearly and put them in a tub. Wires put some masking tape around and label.

    How's the machining going?

    Get a Whiteboard and marker or go get a whiteout pen, write on one of the windows, make sure you write all the little jobs down.

    That way you can mark off little things and you feel like you're getting somewhere and it doesn't feel as daunting if you're achieving things

    That's great advice chaps.
    A build or at least a refurb on mine is something I'd like to do one day.
    Go for it Jack!
    Ps. I wish we had a Bunnings over here! Haha

    I like the ziplock idea might be good for clips and little pieces.

    I’ll upload some pictures this weekend when I have time
