  1. ...or even older than the mean age of the drivers. Can't see me making it to this event thanks @Truenotch but definitely keen to catch up with fellow OSers if I happen to be in Akl at any time.
  2. What do you need @rich1179? Logistics could be an issue but there is always a way.
  3. Better install that lift kit mate. You booked in for Hanmeet yet?
  4. Should get engine braking in L? Mine seems to. edit, oops sorry, should be in discussion thread.
  5. Are EN Civic manual parts any use to you for this? I've got a gearbox, clutch and maybe flywheel in the shed and potentially other usable manual specific parts still on a wreck in the bus paddock.
  6. Refer to earlier discussion about schooling nowadays @smokin'joe.
  7. It's not impossible. Not sure whether Mary is coming yet though. If she does it may restrict my activities a little.
  8. Hazy memory tells me 0.010" inlet, 0.012" exhaust but do please correct me if I'm wrong.
  9. I'm amazed at how not rust fucked this thing looks.
  10. Having done a small part of that journey in a car I'd have to say you'd be fucking game to try it on scooters. That said it could also be quite fun in a big group. You'd need to pick your weather though.
  11. Good to see progress. Makes you feel better to get a project back together / going again after a long interval eh? Does for me anyway.
  12. Few bags of wheat in the tray she'll be all good mate / probably still cut loose like a bastard. Looks like fun but.
  13. Would these speaker pods be warrantable here or would they be considered a dangerous internal projection? They look to me like they might obstruct your feet more than just a bit.
  14. @azzurro, definitely save that van. It's like you've found rocking horse shit rare. I've seen one other irl and that was derelict in the '70s.
  15. My Civic got knocked back for a wof a couple of times for oil leaks. When I went to fix it I found that some of the sump bolts were barely finger tight. Might be worth just checking all the sump bolts and giving it a clean. Always assuming that the gasket is not completely rooted of course.
  16. Are you going to strip and clear coat all the tin work? Might look quite good. The FunHo Chromie look.
  17. Just burn small amounts at a time and keep feeding the fire. Worked for me when I lived in town.
  18. Many things here seem to have been painted with a mixture of waste oil and diesel by the previous owner. I would not recommend it in areas where it is likely that people will lean on it.
