  3. I've put in an offer on a house, and am settling end of April. I work remotely, so I'll be living and working at home for a weee while. Question, IS there any southland people on here? Do you guys do catch ups etc? Spur of the moment moving down there, was trawling trademe and found a place I liked, so put in an offer and yeah....... We got a branch in Invercargil, which if possible I might try work out of a few days a week to have some communication with people rather than spreadsheets haha. I may or may not have an old car (
  4. Holy Hell. Its been a long time, and car has had some different things happen to it. Went and had all the rust cut out ( sat outside for like 6 years and completely rusted out the doors / around screens / guards etc. ) I put a 4AGE in this, one of out my old SR coupe, found a T series disc brake rear end for this one, got it running yadda yadda. Then stripped it to get panel and painted. Its now white, with all the chrome / bits and pieces done in black. Also went and got the sump on my new bigport dipped and plated, alternator bracket, water pump pulley, spark plug co
  5. I am hoping to have car running by then, just did the heat wrap on headers, and sat there struggling trying to fit them into stupid TE31 for a couple hours. Mark ( AE25 ) is also running his japanese annual meet on the 17th Jan, so might be of an interest to you lot? If i don't come in my TE31 ( will be its second outing in maaaaany years ) i'll come in porsche for a burger haha.
  6. I work for partmaster so just buy everything through work. Can price you up a set if your interested? Just catalogued em today so should show up on a rego search on our website now. Can also do various monroe ones, but the prices jump up heeeeeeaps.
  7. give Partmaster a call. Ask for Jared. Tell him exactly what you want And i'll get him to try sort you out a decent price if we've got anything suitable.
  8. even to clear the 266s? Shiiiit I didn't bother reading too much or measuring. Just merely went to work and ordered the junk. Worse comes to worse, i'll try find some 15" minilite reps or something
  9. I've started ordering parts Got me a exedy clutch, all new shocks, got a brake upgrade, threebond cleaner all turned up Got a front lip to mod and put on too. Waiting on my short shifter, gear linkages, new key and lowering springs to turn up. Using Early 206 GTi Rotors & Calipers, so goes from a 244mm to a 266mm vented + bigger calipers ( was hoping to go to the 288 but realised the wheels were only 14" so unsure if they'd fit ) So they'll be cleaned, painted & rebuilt. New Rotors & pads. The shocks are a crazy funny length, the rears are ti
  10. I got bored the other day, and figured i'd need something new to drive once my porsche sold. I bought this Peugeot 106 Apparently had been listed a few times. Bought it sight unseen, only really asked about the clutch - and typical dealer. Lied. It'll be a cool little project. Its an XSI so has the 1.6L, 5 speed manual. Everything standard Has a crazy amount of receipts and wof sheets ( rebuilt head & practically every wof is a clean sheet aside from odd tire every couple of years ) Good things: Has quite a lenient wof. Has rego. Has 4 whee
  11. I don't have anything oldschool that actually drives ( legally drives ) TE31 being panel beated and painted, AE86 can't drive more than 20kph or bonnet flies up haha, carina has a stuck clutch. Got a porsche that can come in, am I allowed to park downstairs or something like it was few years ago hahah
  12. friend started to do some work on the cheap chinese TDR replica wing that came with it.. trying to look something like this as an end game goal ha
  13. Have done a little bit of work, but have lost all motivation.. Bought some more stuff from japan, waiting on my new window clips to turn up for the glass to be chucked in.. Bought some new weather seals - the hard U shaped ones for the doors from ali express ( like $12 for 4m rolls lol ) Also been trying to find the rest of the plastics i'm missing.. Also been splicing the 20v blacktop loom, which is my first ever attempt at wiring - its prob gonna be a fuck up, but i guess thats how you learn.. Sold the alloy 86 radiator for a rx3 one instead, have also underco
  14. Slightly random, but i do this for a living, been learnign how to use old lathes, a mill, trying to start to learn to weld alloy with tig... can't wait till they teach me how to rewind rotors/ stators/ armatures haha... Anyway, Ford Zephyr Starter.. Original.. And denso gear reduction replacement for it.. We make these at work for ANYTHING and everything, done a few for rolls, a ferrari, heaps of old lada's + a 16.1:1 datsun race engine haha.. Pretty much take the customers sample to make up a gasket, and do some measurements and then make up a housing
