Murcielago / Re: G28 - Simple Mans, Simple REDO of an G28 LP640

I try to get something done of the REDO everyday  ::thumbup

The prior owner had the PCm just laying loosely on the bar that holds the rear engine mounts

Bough the GM pcm mounting bracket and welded up  mounting points

Decided on having the wiring hanging in the down position as it seemed cleaner.... but that could change once the engine is back in  ::scratch

Diablo / Re: D&R Coupe - just now building it

Oh HAPPY DAY!!!   ::bounce  I got my Diablo over to my buddy's shop to do more body and such tot he car as I'm getting pretty busy with my work and a move to TX and I don't want to loose momentum on getting the car done.  So I have pics of the struts in the doors and a short video of my daughter letting the door open.  SO excited about this getting done I've had enough left over for 2 days now, going into the 3rd!  :-)  I've waited on this day to see the doors open on their own for 16 years now!!!

Here's the pics and video.

Hey Simple, when you are changing S/C oil that stuff smells like dead road kill , don’t spill any
Seriously

took the engine out for final assembly.  What a nightmare!! the passenger side rear bolt was a pita!! 

Only known issue is the  alternator relocation bracket (sold by FieroROG on pennocks) requires a short spark plug.  Even then the alternator will have to be unbolted and lowered to get it out.

Been so long I'm not sure why it was relocated  ::toothy

Before the engine is put back in need to:
Change super charger oil
New fuel injectors
Install and check new rear brake brackets from Arruat... god I hope they are right!
Install lengthened axles

I found some pics at Carlisle's website which show only TWO of the seven cars that we had there at the 2017 show.  (Sorry Adrian, Bob, RT, & Jimbo)  Typical of the poor coverage by Carlisle of the expertise of our hobby.  I don't appreciate repetitive pics of cars on an angle or zoomed views.  Also found my build in the 2016 show (web address below).  Absent were pictures of Jimbo's blue Diablo and Adrian's Diablo.

I would say use the 91-96 ford thunderbird window motors and regulators, mine are from a 96, and they work great!, they go up and down very quickly, and I recommend silicone lube on the entire track frame.

Take the door panel off and take a picture.  The Nissan maxima rear window motors will probably be the easiest to retro fit in a finished car.
