  1. Mirage-Man's - 1988 Hyundai Stellar

    Been a while since the last update, she's been driving really well, and I haven't had any issues at all. Shes I'm at my mechanic this morning having both rear trailing arm bushes replaced. Couldn't be bothered doing it myself. Will throw down a few pics of the progress this morning.

    Took her for a good drive last night. Got a few good shots of her shine under the LED lights at Lynmall.

    I cleaned every interior part. Shampooed the carpet in the boot. Didn't get around too doing the interior carpet. The carpet is in good condition otherwise. Went too Repco and brought some floor mats which complement the interior well. She's all crisp, clean and clear now.

    I took the Stellar home on boxing day. Once everyone had left the house for a week or two. The past few days has been a bit of a spruce up task with the old girl. Pulling apart the interior, putting parts back in place, cleaning behind everything, including the door cards. Since I've brought it, I haven't actually had a decent look at the rest of the interior. Overall it's in pretty fine condition, with a few cracks here and there in the plastic. As the below pic shows. That was the worst. Where am I going too get that?

    Clean as F**k. Gotta love a clean engine bay, the clean rocker cover really brings it out. Replaced the rocker cover gasket today, after driving around South Auckland trying too get one. Did an oil flush / filter change. And did a full clean of the engine bay. I also replaced the leads as well. She's idling OK. Shes really quiet while idling. I feel it's set too low, as I keep thinking she's gonna stall at the lights. But Yeah, it as adjusted as high as it can go by the looks of things. Anyway, ended up doing about 40KM'S of driving out the back country roads of Papakura. So I'm happy.

    Well finally an update on the Stellar, shes been a non runner for the past few months. Me and my good mate Steven, along with some help through txt message from @piazzanoob 24/7 mechanical help line, LOL (thanks mayte)The old girl roared back into life today, after being parked up for 5 months while I fucked around doing nothing and swearing at myself, thinking I had brought a fucked car with some stupid Mitsubishi engine. They are actually good engines, when their working well anyway. I brought some new parts for it last month - spark plugs, distributer, rotor, points, condenser and coil. Everything like the distributer, points and things had corroded and were apart of the issue is too why the Stellar was not starting / running. Once we got her firing and running for about 20 seconds at a time, every time we put gas directly into the carb, and then a few sprays of Start Ya Bastard, we noticed that petrol was pouring out around the carburettor seal. As we took the carburettor off a few months ago, to give it a clean, we must have disrupted the seal without realising it, and this was the reason she was only running for 20 seconds at a time. We then took the whole carb off and cleaned up the seal and got some silicone over it. Then with a big burst of blue smoke, she started up. Like a typical Mitsubishi 4G32, at one end she was running pretty smoothly, and at the other you wouldn’t think so. Smoke Smoke every fucking where LOL. She’s running a lot better now, and no longer hesitates going over 80km/h. It was like that from the day I brought it. I am able to do 110KPH on the back roads of Papakura very easily now in the old girl. I’ve got too get a few seals and do an oil change next. But for now, i’ll catch up on the months of driving I missed, but yeah. At least she’s driveable now.

    The old Stellar is still parked up, I haven't done anything to it in nearly 3 months. Getting some money in at the moment, so I'll hopefully be able too start doing more work on it. But yeah she ain't driveable, it's turning over but not starting / running like shit. While i'm waiting too get it running for summer cruzin, it's gone a bit moldy on the inside. That's all I got for an update at the moment.
  14. Have you tried going to Jammex NZ. I last checked 2 years ago, and they had some.

    Started up the old girl the other day. She's running like absolute shit. It's hesitation too go over 60KPH, and the rough running is leading me too a gummed up carburetor. Put some CRC carb cleaner through it, and it helped, but not too much. I'll pull it off soon, maybe before I do the engine work, as I want too drive it more before I take the engine apart. Other than that, everything in Stellar land is good.
