This is going to be a very inspirational project. You're first on this, so please, please take plenty of pics & make plenty of fitment notes as needed. Other people will be going behind you on this I have no doubt.

Also... don't forget to check out Karo at Holden Parts USA if you need Aussie parts, he's been good to work with on parts since CP left the picture. He's got stock on hand of Caprice WM spoilers for example...

Good luck!
Eric

Subscribed.

The physical side of things is usually easy to figure out, it's the wiring side of things that's a little intimidating for me.

Got the gear change done. Gonna experiment with 3.45 but I think we will end up with 4.10. The carrier we used was a very low mileage camaro ss unit we picked up for $500. Waiting on parts, got the engine out and on the stand. I will work on the clutch pedal and remove the interior next week for the G8 interior swap. Making good progress now. :D
