  1. I've got everything fixed now just waiting for my fancy film to come back. I need a replacement bumper still but it's pretty much close enough. Here's a couple of progress pics:
  2. I had full tread on all four of my pretty new 195 Hankooks.
  3. Fun's ended again... Slammed into the tow bar of another car going downhill in the wet when the brakes locked up: Excuse the black and white but it's the only film I had on me at the time. Luckily it seems like I'll only need to get the inner fender and rad support straightened out and then get a new bumper and driver side fender, which I both probably needed anyway. And the other car I hit seemed pretty unscathed except for a tiny scratch. Ahh well unlucky. If anyone's got some spare quad headlight panels and a bumper laying around hit me up.
  4. I've got a single fender, a rusty bonnet, and a shit tonne of headlights, but no bumper or endcaps sorry. Traded my bumper for the twin front bumper when I got the kit.
  5. Yeah it was found thank god. Rip in headliner and the ignition is buggered but insurance should figure that all out.
  6. Car's been stolen. Anyone see anything in Napier/Hastings area like this, or maybe parts or something, hit me up. Cheers Hope I'll find it back in one piece.
  7. Yeah so I bought another set of rims, been looking for some Hayashi Street fins for a while and found out that Joe (Goat) had some laying around that he wasn't using. Even sent them up for free, true gc. Anyway, before: And after: Running 195/60 on 6jjx14 with +7 offset. Do you guys think I'll have guard rubbing problems if I run 2" blocks in the rear and lowered springs in the front? Now just need to get all the body the same colour, and maybe some centre caps (if anyone knows of any send me a PM).
  8. PBaines 1971 Toyota Corolla KE25

    Just wondering why get a T50 from Japan? If you are going to get it rebuilt anyway wouldn't it be cheaper to just find one in NZ?
  9. According to the AA guy, any car that has been deregistered by an insurance company has to get a repair certification, unless it wasn't damaged but rather written off for something else (like it being stolen or something).
  10. Alright more money than I wanted to spend later and I finally got the car revinned. Although I thought I didn't have to get a repair cert, I still had to due to the nature of why it was deregistered. Anyway, other than that everything was fine (headlights still need to be adjusted but no one noticed).
  11. Quinn's 1970 Simca 1501 Station wagon

    Ahh shit, my car's been vandalised:
  12. So I bought stuff! Money I should have spent on registration stuff or maybe Uni I spent on rims. Still need to polish the barrel a bit and buy hub-centric rings but other than that should be sweet. Also maybe centre caps, but I might have a try at 3d printing some. Also all of the wiring is now working including lights, indicators and horn. They just need to be aimed properly:
  13. All of the wiring is now finally working, other than the horn which had to be relocated because of the front end. But that will soon be connected too. Other than that we have fixed the dent in the front fender until I find another fender:
  14. Yay! Local wreckers had a recess front wagon with an intact bonnet and latch support. Now all I need is a new driver side fender and for everything to fit properly...
