    Tim's 1966 Cortina GT 2 Door

    Doors taken apart with skins removed and hinge plates. Frames off to the dippers.
  4. One would think so unless it was fitted with all standard running gear again. Bit of a minefield actually

    Rock hard brake pedal issue help

    Got that tee shirt. Car sat for a couple of years and back brakes were jammed when tried to move it. The rear rubber brake hose had collapsed inside. Cut the hose off and bing back brakes freed up
  6. Hi all, the boy is look at buying a 92 Skyline which is a manual. I downloaded the Jap auction report and that plus the photos show it was originally an auto. Question is does the auto to maunual conversion need to be certified? Btw it has a current VTNZ WOF with the manual gearbox.

    Shell is back from the blasters and ready for the final weld off. Rear quarters been dipped and already to go back on. A.l going well it should be in the paint shop by Xmas....
  9. No updates apart from bottom end of the engine is done. Ended up sleeving the block to use the pistons that were already in it. Next job is reco the head and convert to unleaded. Body is on hold until the 2 Door GT is finished at R3 and then onto this one straight away

    This arrived today. LSD.
  13. What’s bolt mounting spacing on the rear bumper? I may have some
  14. Got the body to my olds in Timaru amd the oldschool freight network looks like it’s going to get it to Auckland. Always risky buying sight unseen but it’s a good one. That good in fact I’ll have to consider using this rather than fixing the GT shell. Bit of a dilemma.
  15. I have another old Mk 1 GT Cortina with dead rego but still have the original ownership papers and body tags. The number plates are long gone. How hard would this to be to register?
