  1. what brand would you prefer !!! a fella i know is getting them in, and i guess others will be too, unless they are not in fact Chinese, and are made in a by his clever brother in UK?

    i'm calling your bluff , Mr Ritchie. you want to savour the flavour of the DoBro snags at Riversdale butchery. BTW, when do you head back to the pig island ?

    shock insert rebuild

    i wanted a price for 350mm long, 180lb/in coilover springs and Bilstein inserts. Chris was adamant i needed to send the entire unit up for him to measure and fit, then charge a 're-valvling fee for an off the shelf part. have also heard some of his rebuild parts are not the real deal, but merely a knock-off

    shock insert rebuild

    good in theory, but use heavy grease on drill bit to avoid ingress of swarf, weld a threaded insert on there so you can change the oil grade if to soft/ stiff
  6. good work on the bonnet, mine was in better nick, but was told it would be $1500 to get real good again!!, maybe i didn't need the spendy one from Aussie ?? radiator looks like CR39 Liteace van (can measure one here for you) , but the EA82 Subaru Leone had a similar one from memory
  7. @cletus , what's your take on the legality of a non-welded twin master set-up like this : as i am going with Wilwood 4-pots on front of Levin, i am thinking a bias system will be easier to tune than mucking around with M/Cylinder sizings . Fanx

    funny you should mention my common mistake !! went to weld up the crate on the scrub truck, and realised i done it again. just as well the bottle was only 1/4 full, and the refill is free on the BOC Home D plan

    More shit I don't need - Car Pickup in Dunedin

    when are you looking to by and what is it ? you may be able to pick me up on way through, or borrow my trailer if it fits............ providing it is when i am in the Catlins

    Trailer brakes

    should be easy enough to re-kit them, as they will be a generic piston/seal i'd be more concerned about the wheel bearings, as the Trojan ones on my trailer were MK2? Zepher and were over $400 per hub to replace, if they were obtainable
  13. cheers, found that last nite, and i guess if everything is mounted as close to original bumper line, it should be ok. some of the ones i have seen, leave a lot to be desired
  14. @cletus does a winch bar need cert ? did search on here, but no result. fanx
