  1. Cool project and another Escy wagon saved.
  2. Picked up my BRM 4 spokes today fully refurbed. Thanks to Nigel & Dan from Manukau Auto & Tyres for the top notch workmanship as always. You want your classic wheels restored these guys are the best.
  3. 15 thou for the points should do it to get running. Nice old V8 Rover
  4. Great work seeing an old wagon being restored and kept on the road.
  5. Awesome job! I really need to learn to weld
  6. Nice work on keeping this Cortina on the road.
  7. One complete box ready for action. Body work will start again in a couple of weeks so looking forward to finally getting progress
  8. Used new gear selector forks as the old ones had nice big wear grooves which causes the box to jump out of gear. Put in the selector rods and then wired the rod securing bolts.
  9. Put in the lay gear and input shaft. Used a bit of weed eater cord to lift the lay gear into plus once the mainshaft installed so the layshaft can be slid in. Also used alloy input shaft housing and rear mainshaft bearing carrier.
  10. Assembled the mainshaft all new bearings and fitted the needle rollers to the laygear.
  11. Finally assembled the gearbox last weekend. Here's the main case ready for the internals
  12. Fuck mate you can't turn a trick! I laughed so much at your go jack fail. Thanks for brightening up my day
  13. Looks pretty nice! Will be a great cruiser once you sorted all the mechanical gremlins
