  1. Got some liquid gold today Strangly enough with the correct type and volume of fluid things work much better. It was two litres low, shudder is gonw now, it still surges a bit but I'll ignore that until it gets worse. Changed the atf in the orthia while I was on a roll
  2. Ac doesn't work in the accord and the beagle has a intermettent miss/still is leaking oil. I was trawling marketplace for a manual crv to pillage for parts and saw something tempting. The guy was hard to deal with and a bit abrupt/rude. We took it for a spin around the block, tired a lowball and he didn't accept it. We counted out the cash and he kept ignoring us. His kid came up to us and was like "excuse me are you going to buy the car or not" umm yes we aren't standing here with cash for no reason Ticks all my boxes, cheap uncommon, awd high km, ex damaged auction. Had typical cvt shudder but I'll service it and ignore it. Lisa loves it and has claimed it, she wanted something tall and small ish so it Ticks those boxes too
  3. Keen. I'll even have a wagon (non os) this time
  4. Can confirm pats barrying. Spent a good 30+ mins on the phone with him.
  5. +1 with me and genuine fluid. I've also used torco and its as thin as genuine and shifted waaay nicer than the other stuff that was in the box
  6. Such a excellent blend/colour match you'd never even guess it had been painted Boots on and lined up. A tweak of the latch and its actually shutting nicely on the first attempt now
  7. Right hand side came up good. I got a bit keen sanding and got down to metal so it's got another coat of brunox Left side still has a dip but it's good enough.
  8. The metal was so thin it was either blow a hole instantly or tame some seagulls then blow holes. Cut a patch out and seagulled it in I should have cut a another patch out for the roof but mig wire worked in the end. Ground smoothish and etch primed. Seam sealed all the holes etc and first skim of bog Sand and second coat I'll give it a sand and another prime tomorrow While I had the seam sealer out I redid the orthia. I've got some silver on the way
  9. Had a nosey at the rust in the beagle Didn't look too horrible initially Wire brushed/treated/ignored the rest of the inner rust
  10. Visited @The Dudefor new years and I misjudged the firmness of the sand and we all had a pucker moment when it got super soft It did awd things and we got out. Checked out @Geophy lush new pad and he took us for a tour Such serenity Teddy bear picnic.mp3
  11. Sub is working,I used Anderson connectors on the box so I could remove it easily if needed and they weren't seated properly.
  12. Only the finest side of the road kitchen cabinets for material to make the sub box Fitted a alarm as there is no boot let lock and it's annoying havering to open it from inside the car https://i.imgur.com/5cBF7FJ.mp4 I suspect the sub is nfg as its no worky. Tried two amps and two seperate rca cables, power where it should be etc. Will do some more testing tomorrow and go from there
  13. Kinda keen for another awd honda... Pm me if you do decide to find another house for it
  14. Eugh non rock auto prices suck. I wanted this sorted before the holiday so had to pay the price. I've now doubled my spend on the car Pulled these out of shuttle (have konis to go back in) so time permitting they'll go into the orthia. Mugen damper adjustable shocks so some honda foamers will think I'm fancy
  15. I went back and forward a few times but that's close as I could get them
  16. The mechanics were laughing when I collected the wheels. "fucking teddies" I didn't know they were real wheels
  17. There are a few 2wd manwell ones around, my ex had one. I want to find a manwell crv and Rob all the bits out of it
  18. Nice Xmas list Got tyres swapped from the other wheels So glad we have a hoist at work End links done Tightened wheel bearing and fixed the buckled wheel
  19. So legal size tyres that aren't race tyres don't appear to exist so I'll get some 195 stretched onto the teddies. I'll swap my re003 off the buddy clubs onto them as there's no point in them sitting in the lockup doing zero. On my pick a part mission i grabbed some components. Finally got around to installing them into the accord Annoyingly it sounds better than the stuff in the orthia. That amp sounded crap before so it could be my settings or the amp is just shit. I've got another couple of amps to try so that'll future Chris problem
  20. So I've been pining some wheels for a long time now, I found a set in America that had some on s a pre order. covid delayed shipping etc etc. Shop never replied to any communications (lucky I never gave them any money. I found another set on aliexpress but couldn't justify the freight. Nearly gave up on the pine then they popped up on trademe. Mrs Chrisr said I wouldn't shut the fuck up about them so I should get them. So I did
  21. Do it. Its so worth it. The other two hondas have working ac and it's so nice
  22. Dude quoted 160 but did me a solid as compressor was fucked/ill have to go back for another regas once I fix everything Kashmir Auto Repairs shop in mt Roskill. Really good service and dude was a solid gc
  23. The gc who did the regas noticed a coolant leak. Clearly I missed that spring clip. It must have popped off on the drive over as it was still dripping. Didn't get hot or cold on the gauge. Refitted and refilled and it's as good as it was
  24. Nz new radio and trim fitted. Goes hard for what it is now. Had air conditioning regased today. The compressor is fucked and had black poo all through the lines. It kinda works on the motorway now. Will Rock auto a tx valve, filter and seal set over and find a compressor locally then find some caring and will clean the lines and condenser out in the future
