Project Silvia: Engine In

Posted: May 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

With big thanks to Woodsy for the crane, tools and general handiness, the engine dropped back in today with no major dramas.

The gearbox that was in the car was crunchy dropping back to second when it was cold, so I took a gamble and fitted up a spare I’ve had lying around for a couple of years. I don’t know what condition it is in, so hopefully it works OK…

And there it is. Back where it goes.

Pretty happy with how the white rocker cover looks. Adds a bit of very subtle engine bay bling. Should look good with the new radiator, cooler piping, etc.

Newly painted engine bay thanks to Primal Garage looks great too.

Will keep going over the next couple of weeks plugging stuff back in and generally stuffing around with it. Don’t expect much progress next weekend though – heading to Superlap!
