  1. I think the cooling issue you have is not a air flow related issue. More air will help but is a band aid for another issue. i think the problem you have is that the water is not spending enough time getting cooled in the radiator because the water speed is too fast. A couple ways to solve it is too pull the radiator out and have it triple or double passed so the water spends more time in the radiator and has to flow in a circuit rather than straight in and out. or machine a piece or use a frost plug and drill a hole in it and place it in the bottom hose perhaps which will slow the flow down. this is a trick that has been used before and from what ive heard helps. would be a good way to know if your going in the right direction without pulling the car to bits. this trick i was going to do on the galaxie to help with the getting hot issue. ive also got some frost plugs so if you want to try it and know the size flick me a pm
  2. Also seen some bc adjustable's on facebook marketplace if you wanted some second hand items
  3. Nice m8 We should do a big body date I quite like my factory air with a controller. Can have high boy 4wd spec and nice static low for catching speedbumps. Would like to know more about the apexi computer though
  4. Hey mate Im not sure if you are aware of this or not but mounting the msd 6al boxs inside the vehicle can cause unwanted noises into the vehicle cabin in the sound of electrical noises. ive not experienced this noise myself but have been made well aware of it. but understand your logic in fitting it where it is nice work on what has been done so far anyhow
  5. I turned up about 2 mins due of the movie starting at 8pm but waited for about 10 before it started watched American graffiti and drove straight in no security or anything. but wasn't many cars i was the only car in the back row other than the projector truck. but suspect this being the first one of the year
  6. Can confirm this is a great way to see a movie and good excuse to get your car out. Probably a good date idea.. But I don't have that much success
  7. while in the nelson region i highly recommend the nelson car museum in town. its actually really good. oh and the wanaka car museum is also great. did a bit of a looksie last year and was great.
  8. With recommendation i tried it can confirm does not work. these suckers are on quite tight. Also had @RXFORD work his magic on the lip on the front gaurds so now i get much more lock and less rub but won't damage the tyre now in other progress the car has had a oil change And the drivers handbreak cable has been unseized. I was lucky that my young nephews decided they wanted to help so ended up pulling both cables out and both lubricated and working nicely. Also removed the door lock buttons and gave them a bead blast and paint. Im still having an issue where this runs on the hot side more than i like. When sitting in traffic the temp climbs to 200F and will climb up to 215F if you sit there long enough have not noticed it boil or blow coolant out though. Many say FE motors tend to run hot. have fitted a front pusher electric fan on a switch which helps to maintain the temperature but looking to solve this issue altogether. spoke to radiator shop who thinks adding an extra core into it should help it. Its currently a factory 2 core rad. will also move trans cooler and move electric fan closer to the top rad hose. but also on the fence with replacing rad with bigger aluminum unit and fitting falcon electric fans and shroud. which will also mean my alternator will need upgrading. otherwise the car got a easy pass WOF and have been using it. Did kumeu with the OS boys Also my rear leaf springs appear to be resetting themselves to a lower setting now. can confirm with @RXFORD and dog in the back the left rear tyre rubs round corners better living everyone
  9. I would be fitting a relay to the front lights that's for sure helps with light output and load on the system as the wiring on these old cars can be quite bad. and definitely when upgrading the lights
  10. What have they failed the belts on? When I complied the galaxie I had to go through seatbelt stuff which cletus ended up doing paperwork for to keep the lap belts
  11. I'm currently trying to find the correct paperwork to fill out for a vehicle re registration purpose. Old owner de rego'd it and I purchased off him and want a paper trail that I bought it off him. To comply it again. I'm aware I can do a statutory of declaration but trying to find a vehicle specific one. But also old owner isn't local so can't just fill one out and get it signed etc Been to a local vtnz but they didn't have a clue and told me to ring nzta. And checked with a compliance officer and he is going to send me the file which is on nzta apparently. But who knows when I've searched and can't find any documents on nzta. Anyone know what form?
  12. Yup 100% Would use dry glide myself as can get in a aerosol can to get in there and doesn't seem to dry out
  13. you could use rubber grease silicon spray or crc dry glide.
  14. VTNZ are very good at being useless sometimes talk to land transport about it and see where that goes
  15. Ah dang it appears it probably wont due to the length of the bottle and size of lid. measured the brunox lid and its 63mm. but there might be a product similar to brunox that comes in a 1 litre that connects to the SCA gun but would have to do some research. and many cavity waxes and body underseal connect to the SCA style gun. oh sweet. most standard panel beaters i would think wouldn't have a trolley but if the shop does resto type work then probably would. otherwise was going to suggest that you buy a set of 4 castors and make some brackets and bolt them to the front and rear chassis rails so the car is easy to move around. As i was thinking moving your bare shell for transport wont be very easy. https://www.motortrend.com/how-to/mopp-1203-quick-tech-body-casters https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/215086-please-share-your-body-dolly-designs/#comments some ideas for you. that way moving the shell around is easy for transport and the panel and paint shops and for you of course. Also feel free to PM me if you need any advise or help with something. or just ask around on the many topics on the forum and someone will help you.
