  1. Got any photos of what it looks like now? Good body panels are getting pretty thin on the ground now, might almost be easier to repair what you have..
  2. Got too busy again, tried them the other night but the castors don't really turn fast enough, could push the back around ok but the heavy front end didn't want to go anywhere.. In saying that I didn't sweep the floor, will see if that makes any difference and report back.
  3. I bought the ones on Trademe in the end, they seem to work well but wont have time to give them a real test until tomorrow.
  4. Anyone using these (or can they recommend anything similar they have used)? https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/tools-repair-kits/other/listing-2222163226.htm I just moved into a new house with a "double" garage but it only has a single door to get into it...
  5. I was going to go but @Thousand Dollar Supercar said he wasn't, lol (didn't see the last min update) Next month isn't far away
  6. They gave me another WOF, can't believe it has been a year since the last one already. Still plenty of things to fix though, too many cars and too little time..
  7. The only man with a "running" Piazza.... I might make Feb if I can get a car running by then, not many classic cars to look at here in Shanghai (unless you count the near new "classic" VW Santana's)...
  8. RIP, Herons WOF expired and the the alternator belt broke. Piazzas WOF expired and the batterys toast. Sounds like the start of a "good" country song... One of the Volvo's might start though...
  9. I will have 2 cars that run this month I can choose between, provided they do still run next week... Been a bad month for alternators....
  10. Pretty wet and miserable today, car made it though.
  11. Parts delayed (typical shipping companies), thankfully Vic from skodaparts.co.nz personally dropped them off for me earlier in the week. New brakes in, pass! The only thing I didn't fix was the weather forecast for the Ellerslie car show tomorrow..
  12. Finally got around to taking it through a WOF, passed everything except the rear drum brakes - imbalanced. Upon further inspection we found that the only shoe that was working (cylinder half seized) was attempting to grip onto oil covered drums (the grip coming from the dried up oil I guess). It's times like these when you realise you are working on a incredibly rare car, made of parts from another car that was produced in a country that no longer exists.. Thankfully it is a pretty basic system, parts are on the way so should finally get a WOF in a week or so!
