Hi SBP78,

Would you have a part number for those shackles ? they look extended. I got a new set of springs made from dobinsons with 2inch lift but shackles with
kit i got are standard height was hoping for something a bit longer.

Hey, not sure on part number, could possibly find it somewhere tho, but I just rang superior engineering in qld, and order 2 sets of FRONT mq extended shackles, they dont keep them in stock but will make them as they still have the measurements on file, they will also say they don't know if they will fit a g60 because their info doesn't go back that far, but they do, the parts numbers for all 4 g60 shackles and front mq shackles are the same.

Thanks, shayn

You're doing a very detailed work! Congratulations.

For a moment the last picture of engine bay tricked me! :? :lol:

What equipment are you using for the welds?

The credit for the welding goes to my dad, although when I picked up the cab from his house, the mig he used came with it, so the rest of it, (floor, windscreen, and a couple of other holes) is upto me :think: I guess I'll learn, should be fine seems easy enough haha.. :?

As for the gear I'm no expert. Just a smallish gas mig with .6 wire.

Got to have a good look once it was delivered..tub is completely gone. But the floorpans, and windscreen are way better then mine. Also has the passenger bench seat and a heater! Can't wait to get things moving
