  1. So @Archetype lent me his trailer this arvo and I managed to drive the valiant under its own power onto its trailer. Was good. But the new house location is up on a hill....... got the trailer and two wagons stuck half way up kinda got to close to one side and bottomed out, couldn't move. Unloaded wagon there got trailer up the hill. Backed back down and towed the valiant up with out a trailer. Mate got brakes working and it running quite sweet just not great which is sweet as. And now it's sitting in my shed waiting for me to buy some steel and a couple of cutting disk and hire a gas bottle Watch this space. Got to have it going for the wedding in feb next year and now I have my own shed I can escape from Beth heaps now.
  2. shit yeah. glad to see you on os kenny. cool to see you got a cheap karmann ghia.
  3. I think my valiant has better brakes than my beetle.... got disks up front and definitely stops on a dime. And a shit load more reliable as people seem to think.
  4. Will probably make the trip down. This time in a valiant. Leave it there again and fly home. Touch wood it doesn't brake.
  5. Nope nope nope nope. Nope.
  6. Oh man I am so envious of your car. Wish I never sold my fc. Such a great colour.
  7. Nah I will be keeping full mirror tint for as long as possible. Mirror is a style of life. Haha And Jesus I hate those louvered covers. To much bling for me. Not for this car. Maybe if I had a shiny car but probably the last thing on my to do list
  8. Well we made it to beach hop over the weekend. Started with a trip to tauranga to drop off my 1600 which I sold on Thursday at 930pm..... That's what it's going into. We continued on to whangamata. Made it there at 130am in the end. Fell into bed and was up the next day 1st thing to try get this vw running and make sure we didn't have any issues..... well turned out the radiator was just pressuring and spitting fluid everywhere from word go. So an air lock???? Bled the system a couple of times. Nope still and air lock. At this stage Sean (@oftensideways) was over giving me a hand and we decided we needed to put a bleed nipple in the top housing on the engine. Of we went to see gadget from import x. R100 off old school. We used a drill and Tap from him and got a bolt. Which was handy. Turned out I think the engine had no water in it at all. About 4 letters of water later it was fill to the brim and I was brapping around the block no problems at all. Continued to then finish off my upholstery Yay time to drink. Saturday rolled around and I was up at 8am driving the car threw town to get to the car park. Giving it a good strop and letting the thing Rev it's guts. This was fun. No loud v8s around me. Got into the line quite early which was good. Brent at doozi made me a sign board which I put info on and some photos of how the build went. I had a mate A Aron and his wife come for a ride threw the main parade. Was so cool driving it thew. We had heaps of people ducking down to see threw the front window as I drove passed them. I also packed 2 Bags of ice right next to the radiator trying to prevent it over heating. Did a bloody great job that. Just as we got to our park the over flow just started to spit out. From there I set up camp till about 6. I had a consistent flow of people looking at it and talking to me about it It had a heaps of attention which was cool. Best beach hop so far. All in all it was so good. Also here is a top tip to cover your trumpets if it starts to rain like it did on Saturday while I was by the car. Another shot of it for why not Mate Chris runs the security over there and diverted me to let my car call down but doing that I Gave it a foot full and he really liked the sound, and here he is putting a cone up his bum to impersonate me apparently.
  9. Cheers man. Can't wait to have it all together. Headlining has come out pretty rad also. so happy with the colour combo I've gone with.
  10. Man I can't help myself but share this here. So over the moon with how well it's come out. Oh beach hop also starts tomorrow and my car looks like this. So excited to get there. Got a fair bit to go but we can do it. EXCITING!!!
  11. Just a little update. Made it into performance car mag Won best conversion at reunion Got best under construction and best euro at auto fest in the weekend. Time to do the last things ready for beach hop.
  12. @flyingbrick
  13. ah yeah chit chat and that other sweet yarn kinda stuff goes over here
  14. funny i have a hot slant 6 just laying around somewhere.... now where did i put that thing with triple carbs on it....... drop spindles would be rad but then i have to go to disk and bigger stud pattern and then il loose my rad standard wheels..... get a wof on it and go from there
  15. Oh so I gave up on selling the wagon. Mate has offered swap jobs on upholstery for rust work and getting my wagon to wof stage. So with out further notice I chucked it on a trailer and sent took it to his place to work on. So the next day he sent me a snap chat of it running quite nice. The plan was to sell it to help out the future me and Beth. But I mentioned to Beth I didn't want to sell it (she knew this already and didn't want me to sell it either and wanted to see it used) this is why I got down on one knee. Any way back on track I said that maybe we could sell her golf and her use my Subaru and she's ment to be getting a work car so hopefully all falls into plan and we get a Wof on it over the next 6 months. She agreed.
