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

Events & Shows / Re: 2017 Carlisle Big Replica Car Turn Out!

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.

doing good job, how ever I still would change the rad fans now while you have all open, those fans that comes with the Honda radiators are only 1100 CFM + - 50 . Spals are like 1850 cfm.
also if you are going to store relays not in the cab use oem ones. I went to pick part and got few exterior relays . they are water proof. and more or less last longer then made in CHINA .just my opinion

Thanks Eddie!  I have been looking at the Spal 30103202, but will hold off for now.

On this car the body was already mounted when I purchased it.  The radiator was in the front of the car.  It was a bit of a PITA putting in the rear radiators with the body on the car.  But They come in and out the car very easily at this point.  The wiring for the Fans as well as the mounting of the fans are such that it can handle the added amps and depth/thickness of the fans, when a HO Spal fan or fans are added.

Good idea on the relays!

Very Nice....

I would recommend a clearly visible and accessible place to put the relays and fuses. In my NAERC the fuses and relays are all over the place and I had to spend ton of time finding them, Also when/if someone else works on your car you will wind up spending ton of money for them to figure out what is where. Planing up front will save you time and money in the long run.
Also.... Why do you have 2 relays, one for push and one for pull (to be honest I haven't read the full thread yet)
Are you using 2 fans per radiator? one on each side , one to push and one to pull? or are you just planing ahaid just in case you want to flip the air direction. I have a severe heating issue in my Diablo that I am working on currently (lol when I can work and family comes first)

CCIE

Thanks CCIE!

The relays are easy to get to and marked what they control.  One for the Trans cooler, one for pull and one for push.  On each radiator one fan pushes and one pulls.

I put two fans on each radiator because I had them :)

Good luck on your build as well and yes family first!!
