  1. He'd be even more horrified to learn what's going to be in it.
  2. ^This. At least such was the case some years ago when I bought a Falcon that was on "farm" rego. Fairly sure it hasn't changed.
  3. How about rough sawn?
  4. Did you make it to the show @Lord Gruntfuttock?
  5. How'd the Cleveland like pulling 6k? Seems like a lot of revs for an 8.
  6. Can't be many of us who don't have at least one of these stashed somewhere. Kind of keen to attempt at least part of the Central Otago rail trail on one. Be a bit of a mission but not impossible.
  7. Thoughts on iron head vs alloy head? Heard a few bad stories about the early alloy head 4.1s. No idea if they were true.
  8. Also consider what you are hanging the chain hoist on, this being potentially the weakest link. I have seen a 302 Cleveland and C4 trans hanging from the bottom chord of a roof truss made entirely from 100x50 pine. The creaking sounds it made did not fill me with confidence.
  9. Love that green paint. Reminds me of a humbrol colour teenage me used on far too many models. Does it have a little bit of metal flake in it or is it just looking super glossy in your pics?
  10. This is my thinking too. We have a joke in the office that 1 + 1 = 4 but we call it 10 to give us a decent margin of safety.
  11. Nothing wrong with overkill. As a draughtsman fresh out of polytech I had a go at designing a timber boardwalk structure. The senior engineer had a look at my design, took out half the columns, and reckoned it would be about right.
  12. The Mitsubishi boys seem to be dominating.
  13. My Civic was refused a wof a couple of times for weeping oil past the sump gasket. Once again not a huge amount but they didn't like the look of it on the day.
  14. Pretty sure I have a waterbed heater somewhere. If anyone wants it I can have a look for it.
  15. Very good. Looking forward to pics of "rusty" car models. Will be interesting to see how you make the holes look realistic.
  16. My first thought on seeing this was to wonder if it was my dad's old car (rego KH854 I think). Then I decided it was the wrong shade of blue. Wish you both all the best with it.
  17. It cheers me to see a couple enjoying a project together the way you two are.
  18. The tag on my Wolseley is held on with screws. It was never a problem at wof time. Guess they didn't look very hard.
  19. Have you tried another spark plug? Given that the other three have spark and you've already changed leads that's pretty much the only thing left.
  20. Ex Northlander now resident in the South here. Where is Burger Fuel located in Whangarei? Was back up there in January visiting family. So much has changed since I left in '94.
  21. Was thinking of you and this just the other day. Good to see it's not been forgotten.
  22. The Hilux we had at work in the early '00s was so shagged the front leaf springs bent the wrong way. It wallowed like a pig and was generally terrible to drive but everyone in the office knew that and drove it accordingly. It still got wofs but maybe it shouldn't have?
  23. So theoretically I should have got a cert to change my Civic from the factory 12" steel rims to 13" steel rims of a later iteration of the same model that I bought as a parts car?
