  1. WOF inspectors generally don’t have access to the hobby car manual. The VIRM (WOF rules) has tables of what does not need cert, so anything else does. For suspension see here and go to tables and images https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/general/steering-and-suspension/steering-and-suspension-systems
  2. Waitangi weekend / Bob Marley’s birthday. Vinegar Hill
  3. Have you considered coming to Wagnats? Bring this and win an amazing prize.
  4. I’m glad you painted the oil cap and air filter bracket black. Red was so wrong.

    Power files

    I emailed them about the price drop after I bought it and they are giving me the difference as a voucher. Great service. I’ll use it to get some more belts.

    Power files

    I bought a tool shed power file last week. I’m glad I got this one and not the Ozito that is half the price but half the power. Stink buzz for me when I saw yesterday it is now $40 cheaper. If anyone is thinking of getting one jump on it now. $99 https://www.thetoolshed.co.nz/product/3433-toolshed-file-sander
  7. Picked the next spot. After the big piece on the corner this was so easy. Nice to see my skills improve. Starting to get the welds dialed in. Should have stripped the paint back further.
  8. Still ticking over with this I did clean this rust up and give it a paint before covering it up. Ordered a tool shed power file to finish off the welds. Waiting for that to arrive.
  9. Oh, that makes sense. Do this.
  10. Can you take a pic? What is the engine? Is it inside the rocker cover? It may be something to stop oil going out the PCV valve. Don’t jam anything in there until you confirm what it is.
  11. Transporting a full sheet may be an issue.
  12. Anyone have suggestions on where to get cold roll sheet metal in Welly by the part sheet? @Nominal ?
  13. Sounds like you need to go for a stroll around pick a part, when the world is unlocked.
  14. Will do, Spencer. I think I will need to for the outer door skin. I will struggle to fold the edge over straight on this stuff. Might need to find someone with a bender too.
  15. Cheers Hayhole. I watched a few you tube vids to get some pointers. I found this guy pretty good https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6JPmJ_aicru8XPWr3EvJnw
  16. If it is backfiring and not starting I would guess you have the timing wrong. What state are the spark plug leads in?
  17. Yep. Do what you want if it has its own switch. https://vehicleinspection.nzta.govt.nz/virms/in-service-wof-and-cof/general/lighting/cosmetic-lamps
  18. I have one of those. I haven’t done a huge amount of work with it yet, but is going well with 1.1mm panel steel. I did have to fix a gas leak where it goes into the machine though.
  19. Yep, this stuff is hard to bend without a bender. Can’t get anything else for a while so persevered with what I had. It’s a start anyway and is keeping me busy.
  20. You also want to get the air out by tapping or vibration. Or pop down to mitre 10 and buy one that’s ready made https://www.mitre10.co.nz/shop/firth-grey-block-190-x-290-x-190mm/p/431438
