  1. Running repairs/side of the road bodge fixes?
  2. Oh shit, who's going to support vehicle the support vehicle?
  3. Do you risk losing overall shape if you take it off?
  4. Well, thanks Auckland I was looking forward to burgers
  5. I didn't mind paying the entry fee and paying for diesel, I was there for the adventure just like you guys. I did appreciate the rainbow toll though. Grinds my gears paying a legal road.
  6. Rough road on the rainbow, would suck to break something on the first day
  7. Will try to remember to turn up You still got my radio yeah?
  8. I thought just a bit of 50x6 angle along the leading edge might suffice.
  9. Maybe a little front edge protection for tree branches along the roofline?
  10. Build thread: Nice Old Samurai was pretty much my apprenticeship
  11. Does this present an interesting conundrum where mudflaps fitted at certification, in the photos, removed at a later stage, legal at wof time but not matching cert photos so therefore.... not legal?
  12. It's a compressor trailer E.g: More loaded means more braking needed to get efficiency %. I went somewhere else. They drove it up the lane, heavy braked a couple times, pass. Gah
  13. Am I reading this wrong, is this relating to scratchbuilt?
  14. I've got another today that's an old axle made by BPW a commercial axle manufacturer. It's cable brakes, same tow hitch arrangement as a hydraulic override. Works fucking amazing.... 35% imbalance. No parts available because too old. I think I'm going to cut the cables and weld the hitch solid. Trailer weighs 940kg
  15. Wof guy backed the car up with the trailer on the rollers. Gave me a fail, 25% efficiency. I took the trailer back to the workshop wasting the customers money stripping and inspecting and finding brakes faultless. Went back, guy backed it up again, fail. Had to ask him if I could pull the lever (remember I'm not a general public, or I'd never be allowed in the lane) braced on the front of the trailer and managed to get 52% with my foot on the handle.
  16. Do any of you wof guys know when the virm rules for general trailers brakes changed? In that now they have to be 20% balance and 50% efficiency. There's a few trailers I know that are probably going to get their brakes removed because of this. They aren't required to have them, but it's too difficult and expensive to make them pass. More safe?
  17. Lvvta was set up by a bunch of hotrod nice guys to give a voice to the general public against the bureaucratic rules of the nzta, to help them see reason and be fair. Imo it seems to me that bureaucracy has taken over lvvta too
  18. "more or less in the plane of the wheel." Is what now?
  19. See this picture looks like a mudflap, but I think it's supposed to look like a mudguard that might be part of a trailer type thing
  20. Yeah but aren't you getting width and length mixed up?
  21. This is for mudguard width? It doesn't actually state mudflaps e.g length right?
