    this chipping away at this ol girl cut out this rusty piece of steel in the R/h front floor pan which had been bogged over. this piece has most likely rusted out due to a leaking heater. \ Used this piece of 1.5mm of zintech panelsteel. spend some time panel bashing it with a wooden panel hammer and sandbag and a steel hammer then tack'd it in with some more hitting with the hammer. Then faced my torch underneath to check for any holes welded the remaining holes up a few times and now shes air tight. just like AL's mum puhuhuhu will leave the welding on this patch as is for the moment untill she gets the all clear from the repair certifier along with no paint or rust stuff. also my aliexpress gauges turned up too pretty happy with the quality of them.

    so one of the jobs for compliance was to do the L/R wheel bearing. so out came the driveshaft also popped the diff head out for inspection and out came the axles without too much trouble. so seen as this car has no drain bung for the diff fluid i popped the diff head of its seal and let it all leak out well you would of thought so... then with diff head out... the diff fluid had turned into some hard tar shit. the fluid had not been changed in a looooong time. half of the stuff that came out was a solid. also the diff head and axles were also covered in this crap. so took the diff head and axles into work and gave them both a good cleanup in the parts washer. along with fitting two new wheel bearings as may as well do both while i am in there. also made up some new paper gaskets for the axle flange. and got the diff head as clean as i could. must of spent about 3 hours cleaning all the hard tar shit that is the breakdown of the gear oil that was sitting in the axle tubes and diff head area. then refitted it all and refilled the diff up with some 75w 90 gear oil but will change it again after a few miles just to keep everything in there happy.

    Ive had to do this a couple of times now with customers who wont pay for a wheel alignment after we have replaced steering or suspension components. get yourself out a measuring tape and put one end of the tape in the middle grove of the tyre and run it across to the other front tyre into the same middle grove. so lets say the measurement is 2.300mm for example so now that you have measured the front face on the front tyres now measure from the back face of the front tyres in the same middle tread grove as previously. and lets say the back measurement is 2.400mm so the vehicle has 100,mm of toe out. so set the steering wheel straight. also do this while the car is resting on the ground. not jacked up. and adjust the tie rods until the measurement is the same on both faces or close enough. doing this should get it quite close and fairly straight. but wont be that accurate if your caster and camber is also upto shit. this pic gives you a better idea best of luck!

    The lower anchorages I believe are not factory. I fitted them as car came with none. the seatbelts come out of the bronze's 63 galaxie but his had the factory mounting points. but mine already had some holes there so I just used those holes and bought the correct plates and bolts to suit it.

    Thanks so being a pillarless there is no other place to fit a diagonal belt so it will need to keep its lap belt. Doesn't help that I've removed the carpet too so can this be done by having a cert plate on the car or a just a document to say so? Cheers

    2 steps forward one step back. as some of you know already from spam this old girl broke down on me last monday on the mangere bridge which is a motorway and this old bus stopped in the bus lane. had been over at work aligning the headlights and getting some other bits done and was going send it back for its recheck. but ended up getting frustrated at the car and calling it quits and taking it back home to sit in the corner. and running the headlamps caused the battery to go flat so i jump started it and off i went. only got 5 mins walking distance till she died. so got my AA cover to come pick me and the car up and drop it at home. was lucky enough that none of the 3 cops that went past didn't stop as the towie said it would of been impounded as no wof or rego and 400 bucks in fines. got her home and charged the battery up and she fired up without an issue as i knew it would. but the carb on it is some no name 50$ napa auto parts POS. have had it off to seal a leak it had and have given it a good clean out but trying to tune it with this carb doesn't get me anywhere and still has a flat spot. so when some money is available that doesn't need to be used for compliance shit a new carb is going on it. was thinking an edelbrock 650cfm 2 barrel with electronic choke. was told edelbrock's are much easier to tune than holley's which i would believe. trunk floor that needs replacing has a few holes in it that could be reapired but the metal is pitted and its easy to just get another piece made. and this is the R/H front floor piece that needs replacing fairly simple shape so will start making it and weld it in. cheers mayte

    fucking sweet news! let me know if you need the shit dropped back too
  12. piazzanoob's 1964 ford Galaxie 500 seeedaan

    yeah pretty much the first guy that inspected it said it must have a 3 point safety belt. like what! its pillar less you cant bolt it to the roof. now they want a Lvv cert for the mounting points even when its got the certified seatbelt plates and bolts. like it wasn't even a factory option for front seatbelts it was an extra like who cared about that in 64. will just chuck in a high stop to keep them happy. then take it out when it has the sticker on the window sick of trying to argue with people who dont know the rules to start with.

    yeah defs i quite dig the colour myself. just needs a good cut and polish and remove the pealing clearcoat and it should come up sweet.

    so as some of you already know the old girl went through her compliance. so the morning i dropped her in for compliance the guy there found an issue within a minute the shipping agent in the USA made the bill of sale but they didn't spell my last name correctly but to make it worse they wrote it twice on the papers but with two different wrong spellings. duh! so i dropped the car off at my old mans work and went and saw a JP (justice of the peace) and got the paperwork sorted stating that they spelt it wrong etc. then the car went the next following week after nzta gave the okay on the paperwork. she went through and failed on a whole bunch of stuff lights/rear wheel bearings/power steering leaks/ headlight aim/seatbelt type/rear brake specs to be confirmed/weight of the vehicle/check engine numbers/brake imbalance. And some rust and a previous repair on the chassis to be redone. so at the moment most of the mechanical repairs have been done. so i popped her over toady for the recheck only to have another inspector check it and find more shit they want done. now they want a rego lamp lense/ a high stop fitted (doesn't by the virm need one) but you cant argue with them. and the seat belt mountings LVV certified. but ive also had the repair certifier come and inspect and document the repairs that need to be done so now i can start work on that. so it needs R/H floor pan repaired cut out and new patch welded in. Trunk floor pan cut out and replaced with new steel. and R/R chassis rail cut out tidied up check it is all square etc then welded back in. and clean up sills from previous jacking and leftover bog from repaint. so all of this will be done by myself and my old man. And i have till the 27th of feb for it to be done by. so now i need to find someone to make me a rear trunk pan. was going to use a person who made me a piece for the starlet but he went on holiday in November to ozzy and im unsure when he is back so will need to find someone else.
