    Iíve just spent a couple of weeks driving a Holden Trailblazer. The VM diesel is a really nice torquey motor and matches well to the 6 speed GM auto. Also the motor looks simpler than expected without pipes going everywhere like you see on most modern motors.

    This will be a very nice RRC when done.

    I'm back and I've been busy!

    I finished welding the chassis and then cleaned up the chassis surface in preparation for coating. I cleaned out about a million tonnes of dirt from the chassis, but after that, it cleaned up pretty well. I painted the chassis with two pack gloss black. The diffs and suspension components were also painted, and then I reassembled the chassis and diffs with new Superpro bushes.






    Now that the car's back on it's wheels (well, the chassis at least!) I proceeded with the Lt230 rebuild. The transfer case was stripped, cleaned, all bearings replaced and Ashcroft ATB center diff installed. With the transfer case still out, I retrofitted two electric actuators to actuate the CDL and Hi-low range. I decided to go down this route instead of the mechanical route as I have no room on my center console for a mechanical linkage. The actuators are IP65 rated and are mounted quite high, so hopefully they will work ok.










    I then installed the transfer case back onto the back of the auto. The engine could then go back in. After finishing the exhaust welding, I installed the exhaust, fuel tank, fuel lines and chassis wiring loom.




    With the chassis finally ready for the body, I turned my attention to cleaning up the body. This was a terrible job, because you get covered in crap from head to toe! But I persisted and managed to clean up and paint the under body (shout out to my lovely girlfriend who got covered in crap and got soaking wet in the middle of winter whilst using the gurney on the underside of the body).
    The forklift came in handy to reinstall the body, with new body rubbers and bolts.

    Now the work continues, I have installed the body wiring loom from the Colorado. Next tasks will be to install sound deadner, connect the wiring loom, power up the electrical system and hopefully start it up!

    How much easier is life when you have a hoist and a ton of room.
