  1. Lets just say I have been through about 10 sets of rimmer ones.... Although the set i'm on now hasn't gone because i did gearbox mount at the same time i'm guessing. Have been through a few b-outs as well, I have a link somewhere for some Australian ones everyone seems to recommend though.
  2. You could say i'm pretty excited!!
  3. Poor update but an update: Front coilovers have been ordered from Manon racing went with fortune auto Hope they arrive before I move back down to welly so I can get them welded up and crack tested before I leave rather then down there Went to Rotorua vintage car show this last sunday, there were lots of fizzing old barry's Car may be in a magazine if i can organise myself to get trim/ roofracks finished Discuss...
  4. I need a wagon to go with my wagon
  5. Can I buy this yet?
  6. This is running well good and getting dailyed everywhere retail has wrecked me so no holiday to get all the shit done but me and my mate have made up the tricky bit of the roofrack and bolted it up today all it needs is new fasteners and a rubber gasket so it can be all done up... Still need to do the runners which will be in the new year This is them Next update should hopefully involve coilovers Discuss: //
  7. Running problem seemed to be a dirty injector Also this popped up on facebook today Am pulling the pin on coilovers so will get in contact with barry at manon racing tomorrow and finalise an order for some fortune autos for the front and suzuki swift springs for the rear
  8. Got this back on Friday.... Ran out of gas 100m down the road hahah Cheers Highlux for being the saviour Days off work are Sunday and Monday so got some trim on yesterday morning before some commitments in the afternoon Am very stoked on how it came out Has developed a fuel problem so will check everything is all good in the metering unit tomorrow night, spent two hours today with the old guru on pi stuff here in Tauranga today has told me what to look for and sorted me out for parts with a troubleshooting book he put together so hopefully get that done tomorrow and put the rest of the trim on If we get it done tomorrow with minimal costs involved will be ordering coilover parts this week tooooooooo, very excite Plus roofrack is being built this week ready to put on the car on sunday we decided on something along the lines of this made out of stainless that fits in the existing holes from the last roof racks
  9. Please leave those on xo
  10. This was supposed to be back to me on friday, don't have it back yet so i'm hoping to get it back by this friday.... It goes into the booth tomorrow!!! Roof racks still haven't started so i should get onto that haha This is what it is looking like as of lunchtime today
  11. Stripped most of the trim off of this today minus the front grill Goes for paint on wednesday will have it for a week and a half
  12. Had a few fuel problems with this with daily use so we changed fuel pump filters and lines..... It didn't turn out to be the problem.... it just turns out that under a quarter tank the pump stops picking up and pumping fuel!! Now i know to keep it above quarter of a tank... haha In other news the car is booked in for a full respray next Wednesday!! I have decided to keep the sunroof for now at the advice from my panelbeater who said it would be a lot of work to fill so will look at this at a later date That means this weekend will consist of stripping all the chrome from the outside so its ready to be dropped off on Wednesday!! Two things to look at while car is in paint is building a roof rack like below to fit the existing roof rack holes and getting the roof rack chromed and ready to put on with new gaskets!! Stoked to finally be doing things to make it look better!! This also means slam is closer.... Discuss here.. //

Pretty sweet for sitting in a shed for 7 years haha Will get new seat belt on sunday arvo, new park light bulb and fill the washer bottle too Monday will get new brake pads fitted and either lose the rear muffler which is the bit touching the driveshaft or bend it in a few mm... Then will have a wof and can book it in for respray!! Discuss:
