Truenotch's 1981 910 Wag (A rich patchwork tapestry)
Posted 14 October 2010 - 07:24 PM
soo been looking for a wagon for a while now. so after a severly chop riddled night with kk dadums E and co i woke up early and massivly hung to catch a flight to aucks to view/ buy this
after a detour with rot808 and euron8 i was the owner ! , drove it to whakatane to pick up some doors etc, then back to welly , minor miss here and there but other then that went amazingly well!! .
unfortunatly my camera died so no update pics buuut i started cleaning up small bubbles around the areas that would stop a wof . i then decided to test the waters of the primered corners on the a and d pillars ... omg ! long story short polyester filler was swapped for steel bad part is i suck sooo bad and finishing so it looks rough as shit . dont care its better then bog being my rollcage .
also did mechanical check and im happy as with it . replced the two lower control arm balljoints due to ripped boots and minor play in l.h one .
oh and how could i forget whle putting the l.h d pillar window in it exploded showering me , the car and the next couple bays in glass . dropped my tools and walked 10 k home .
BUT thanks the DIRTY LEPPER i got another window today !! thanks man you my friend are a grade A legend!! .
other then that i have given the inside a good tidy up and went over all the windows with a blade , scrub window clean and on the front some sweet rain repelllent .
yes i know updates without pics blow gulf water but my camera stopped working !
plans after wof check are slam , cb , roofracks . transfer doof doof from hardtop to this and in a bit tints or curtains for rear

so will have warrent tomorrow then its the sounds from hardtop into it , adressing the ride hieght , and i was thinking about these but by the look they require tremendous amount of holes in the roof , which is somthing im not happy with at all
so umming and arring about that .
prob cant afford a cb this week. i will try though , hopefully nate can sort me a sweet deal asap . must hit him up

worked a treat too , sooo dont regret getting one of those at all!!!
anyway lowering so decided to make blocks because im tight and such
adn fitted to the rear
i then tried to fit the coilovers to the front but the steels told me to fuck off .
So im going to get tyres on the fins and fit them , this leaves me with another problem though , the shock nounts will be about 50mm off the ground . not keen. sooo looks like i might be reseting the leaves . anyone know how much this usually costs ?
there was somthing else too . oh yea i want an ld28+t . but that can wait till the hardtop gets its new motor as im taking up a wee bit too much room in the workshop

Also tightened up the tappet clearances to remove the daylight that was trapped between the cam and rocker arms. It's as quiet as a viscous fan now!
Put a timing light on and lolled that it still had 25' advance even after cranking it back by miles. Now running 12-14' advance. NO PINKING, smooth as a new one and pulls it to 100K nicely.
Quite chuffed with the fuel economy as well. I just finished off the OS nats tank - 560k's on 50 or so litres of fuel! Not bad for an old donk.
Next up: Unslam and weld patches for WOF
Possibly add supercharger

It was worse than I expected.
Bog, bog, paper, rust, hole, bog, paper - repeat.
Under rear bumper:
We're going to crack into it over the next 3 weeks and should end up with a solid, non leaky, WOF spec wagon. The carpet needs to come out and dry off too and everything has a layer of moisture after the weather we've been having recently.
Then it shal be slammed again.

It isn't too far off now. Patches have been filled, sanded and primed. Going to pull the doors off and fix the bottoms before fitting fender mirrors and going for paint (almost a full respray now).
Would seem a shame to trade it down to my little brother.
