Painted inner cab black finished prep/paint on RH guard, removed alloy flares for powdercoating prepped/painted doors, spun up some new door hinge pins degreased prepped and painted engine bay Grrr kinda getting over this but slowly getting there step by step. On a good note better phone means better pics!

  3. Thanks. Yes I was thinking of keeping the 4 speed for now. Iv been told that the transfer case has longer ratio gears in it but I'm not sure about that. Iv driven it about 4G ms at a top speed of 6th so will see how I go. It's also has the smallest engine out of my 3 cars so I'm not worried about fuel lol

Pulled out engine/gearbox/transfer box Split chassis/cab/deck and got my loctite rust convert on, gotta love that shit!

  19. I could have a look on Thursday for ya. Do u know where in nelson?
  20. Sooo... I did the pre Nats run over Takaka hill for testing/tuning purposes. Good news is the cooling system was fine, Bad news is that I found out (the hard way of course) that my Mallory dizzy couldnt keep up with the mad power of a accell super coil. Outcome: Points blown to bits, Condenser not condensing. Side of the road with bonnet up. Thanks to all the people that offered help, got home eventually with the help of a coil from Riwaka garage. I was thinking on the way to the garage that if ANY garage would have a coil on its shelf, its got to be Riwaka! Also cant forget the nissan forklift that gave up its condenser for me lol Spent today remounting the garage coil and replacing points, Did some "By Ear" carby tuning. Drove to Hira for ice cream! (btw Biggest ice creams in Nelson region...IMO) Great success!!
  21. Awesome photo of "LAND BARGE" taken today at Nelson Lakes
