  1. Legend, thanks for the response.
  2. What is the correct ruling when it comes to this image in regards to tyres with sidewall tread This is a tyre we sell a lot of for example, and on a lot of the Ford Rangers we put them on, the sidewall tread sticks out of the guards but the rest does not.
  3. I'm looking forward to seeing this. I'm guessing it'll just get the PDF updated on the LVVTA site?
  4. Sparky said that's also a possibility. I'm going to leave the circuit as it is and I'll just put the maintenance charger on it to keep it in check.
  5. Yes. I spoke to my auto-sparky and he said it's likely the dimmer has pooed itself. Weirdly enough, the problem seems to have stopped so I'm just going to keep an eye on it and see what happens. I've since also bought a trickle charger to help with keeping the battery in check while it's parked up.
  6. Oof I hope not. The alarm was new and installed by a sparky only a couple of years ago. Thanks for that though, I will have a look into it.
  7. Car is a Silvia S12. It has slowly drained it's battery over time. To be expected as it just sits there but today while driving it, I noticed that the interior light was on really faintly (LED). When I get home and check it, for some reason it has 6v when it should be none. I open the door and it goes up to 12v as it should, then close the door, it's dims down till the lights off, but then the 6v returns again a split second later. My initial thought is to inspect the dimmer for it, but thought I'd post up to see if anyone could offer other things to look into just in case? It does also have an alarm which uses this circuit to lock the doors if the door hasn't been opened after disabling the alarm.
  8. Expensive coilover shocks going in so he doesn't want to modify them. (Running the shock and spring seperately though.)
  9. I don't think this is too big a deal, but just double checking on behalf of a mate (he can't get in touch with the local certifier in Whangarei to ask) S12 Silvia with H190 solid rear axle. He's changing the shocks on it to something else and the lower bush is wider than the factory one. Is it ok to cut the existing u shaped bracket off the diff, and then make a new one (out of 3mm folded plate steel?) and weld it on? The spring is run separately so is not load bearing as far as that goes. Bracket in question:
  10. Commenting to sub, don't know how to do it otherwise.
  11. This would be a similar case in this size also. I did some research through our suppliers and found about 10 different brands that do the size. I can possibly look through the technical data of some of them to see which of them is the skinniest. @dspec_tt131 let me know what brand and pattern you've currently got and I can do some comparisons.
  12. Ah right, the only 195 that can go on a 7.5" rim is the 195/45R14 which Falken do bring into NZ. That's a huge height drop though.
  13. The range on the LVVTA guide includes the maximum and minimum of the major tyre brands. I.e. If Hankook had a 195/65R14 good for 5" to 6.5" but then Toyo has 5.5" to 7" the range allowed would be 5" to 7" (Example only) Falken were the only brand to have there product range outside of the normal specs from other brands, but they've since reigned that in and are now on par with everyone else. Unfortunately you're best bet is to go to a 205/60R14.
  14. It's all good, I managed to convince the seller to drop it off for me. Thanks for the offer though.
  15. Hey guys, I'm in the process of bidding on a small bbq on trademe, and am hoping someone would be able to pick it up and drop it off at Beaurepaires on Parumoana St for me? It'd easily fit into the boot of a car. Auction ends on Tuesday. Ideally I'll flick through the funds to you so cash can be paid for it on pick-up. Will obviously pay for your time also. Thanks guys
  16. Is it one of those if they are there, they have to work things? Like a spare wheel, if it's there, it has to be bolted down.
  17. No problem, it's much easier to do from each individual items side and far more reliable as well. This is what we do to all of our mobile phones, laptop and wireless printer in our workshop. All up, we're at about 15 different items on WiFi. We do have a non-provider issued modem (Draytek) though as we run a VPN also, so this does allow us to have more devices connected whilst still maintain performance.
  18. Are you setting up static IP's from the router or on the individual devices? If you do it on each individual device, you would be limited to over 200, not 8. It would also prevent router from resetting those ip's if it gets reset.
  19. Mine was made from 6mm steel plate with 18mm(possibly 20mm) steel rod used for the spacers. (Welded together) Past cert without issue.
  20. Most ones supplied by the retailers selling aftermarket wheels are plastic. Some are alloy but very few. Why not try ringing a local wheel shop with the ID of the wheels, ID of the spacers, and the OD's of the spigots, and see if you can just buy them. They're normally only $7-$8 each anyway. If you don't feel like calling, PM me your measurements and I can ring and ask tomorrow for you
  21. Tyres should be fitted from the front side of that rim. It's typical of a cheaper wheel to have the well so far from the face, but obviously it's deeper at that end to cater for it. (Not saying it is a cheap wheel, but the likes of Advanti do this on almost all their rims. JWL used to mean something, (it still does in most cases) but then Chinese copies happened, and now they seem to be on almost every wheel anyway. In terms of quality, I wouldn't say that rim is chinese. If you like at the back in the centre, it's formed around the stud holes. All chinese stuff I've seen has a round mounting face as it's cheaper and easier to do. I'd be looking at what @kyteler said and it's possibly from Performance Wheels Australia
  22. Done, a few hours of messing around, but it now works. I have an Auto Meter tacho internals on the back of my S12 cluster. I'll get the tuner to fine tune it tomorrow while it's getting it's tune done. Cheers for the help.
  23. Yeah, I thought about using a S14 one or something, but I can't find anything locally I can grab today
