  1. Wow. I forgot all about those. I hope you can make something that works with them.
  2. Look at that grass. I hope some "precision driving" was done after the photos.
  3. Probably just as well you sold the hard top.
  4. Even better than I hoped!
  5. I'm dying to see this all fresh and red! It'll look awesome with those gold wheels too. Best save ever.
  6. Thanks mate. As I remember you had a few other things to sort out last time you were in Christchurch. Next time.
  7. Ha ha, I knew that at the time. Did it anyway.
  8. Some months later. . . Handle bars. Made, finished today. Panther gussets made in 3mm and milled down to 1.8mm because I couldn't buy 1.8mm Chromoly plate. Jigged and welded into place. Mock up picture because I was feeling proud. View from the drivers seat. Also 26x1.75 Gum Wall tyres on their way, Pantha stickers purchased, chrome, paint anodizing, and other 80s spec bling to follow.
  9. First time I've seen this car on matching wheels front to rear. It looks so much better for it. You going to paint it red? I think it will look great.
  10. Glad it ended up in the garage. The first few photos looked like it was off to pick a part.
  11. You know it'll happen.
  12. LSD! Awesome upgrade. Next update needs to contain Starlet doughnut pics.
  13. Tonight I did some welding. This was the result.
  14. I found a few hours for this over the weekend and tacked the rear end together. I'm very pleased with it. I do however want to move the chain stays out a little to give me more room for a wider tyre, it has plenty of room before it is too close to the chain wheel.
  15. Yeah well. I made these stays and had them all ready to weld on, they looked great. Until I realized I'd completely fucked up and put the bend too far forward and it wasn't going to clear the crank or chain wheel. I sulked about it for a few weeks, ordered some more tube, made a couple of changes to the bender I'd made, and started again. Here's what I have now. This time! I also managed to borrow a pair of original Assassin handle bars to make a copy of. Mint!
