  1. Yeah I checked and they’re definitely crags. I’d forgotten about this crag design. I’d been looking for the 6 spoke style for my 4x4 Delica recently but found something a bit different in the end. Yours is gonna look really good. I’m actually a sucker for the retro brown interiors. The gold is nice too.
  2. Just on the off chance you were keen on a bullbar which you may not be as some prefer without but this ones identical to mine and I believe a factory toyota part for these https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/car-parts-accessories/roof-racks-bull-bars/listing/3307155437
  3. Just the 3L V6 from the later model which is nice cos it could almost be factory and definitely doesn’t look out of place. Not sure what the rims are yet but they look good. $4500
  4. Well….. I acquired this today. Actually only 137,000km and the V6 is a certified conversion.
  5. Ok cool, thanks for your feedback. I’m viewing it properly tomorrow morning. I would think it would be less desirable than a diesel one when it comes to resale however if you wanted to Lexus V8 one this would be ideal. I’d rather keep it fairly original.
  6. Speaking of…. I saw this for sale today. It’s a V6 petrol auto. 173,000km. What are they worth?
  7. Totally loving this whole project. Love these old surfs especially with the original old graphics. I shoulda bought the yellow one that came up recently on TM
  8. I rescued a yellow one of these from a scrap yard about a year ago. You get any spares with it? or nuffink? I was just gonna improvise for all the missing bits. Who needs a seat when you can strap a tassled cushion to the fuel tank?
  9. If you want a quality but basic unit then Syntech do one that's just a gun with a hose. You put the end of the hose into your bucket of garnet and sand away. I wouldn't go anywhere near using normal sand for blasting due to the dangers of silicosis. More info here: https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/92-102/ Use garnet which Syntech can supply you also. Comes in sacks in 3 different grades if I remember correctly. Let them know what you're doing and they can advise you on the correct grade. http://www.syntechnz.com/
  10. Depends on how simple the section they're replacing is too and how visible it will be..... Does anyone know what the deal is with Custom Metal Shapers these days? Someone on here mentioned the owner is in prison now!!? Not sure if that's correct.
  11. IMHO if you want good rust repairs you really need to go to a panel shop that specialises in restorations and can actually do some metal shaping. I wouldn't go to your standard collision repair shop for rust repair on a classic car. Same for Just Rust, they're really just about doing you some quick patches to pass your WOF.
  12. Perhaps this would be of use to you given the recent engine troubles. Otherwise someone else may be interested? https://www.facebook.com/eastsideautorecyclers/?fref=ts
  13. Always loved these and have been wanting to get one myself. How are you for parts? I just found 1 in a wrecking yard not far from my house. In fact apparently they have three but I'm yet to have a proper explore. Will keep you posted.
  14. Are those tyres made from marshmallows?
  15. I'm going away for the weekend and leaving shortly but I can pick that shiz up one night next week. Could be monday if it suits him? How long do you need it stored? or are you unsure at this stage?
