  1. I’m liking this cyclonic filter and or water bath ideas - have been running a cheapo China carbon pod filter as prefilter for the vacuum - it’s amazing what it catches but astounding how much it still lets thru + 1 on fit a decent light and now keen to try miracle spray on the screen and some glass bead
  2. Yeah this looks like it could be fun and only 2 ish hours away from me What are the other classes up from 1300cc ? Where would a 2.5 litre fit ? so it’s autocross on a gravel formed track rather than asphalt and cones ? Almost rallycross ?
  3. Die grinder and paint won’t make me the welder I ain’t ...
  4. Was that suggestions of more stuff that doesn’t involve finishing the wiring nightmare procrastination?
  5. Been a while - it’s been exhausting ... built some very dodgy 3-1 headers to fit thru the incredibly small gap between motor and front subframe - down into a pair of flexys and then 2-1 was aiming for a crossover and twin pipes to the back but nope not enough room thru rear subframe - wideband goes in the top of the 2-1 join then piped to one big muffler at the back Needs to come back out for a tickle up and paint then I’m gonna call the exhaust done
  6. Best option for tilt cab thru loft floor I have seen is loft floor has hinge across the middle and tracks/ rollers on the outside edge - hand winch under cab to raise it before tilt cab - will grab pics off mates one if I’m near it soon Gonna need a lot of room to tilt a twin cab
  7. TNL Facebook page barries will know where that truck ended up and probably remember the wired kit taking photos ... Transport (Nelson) holding Ltd page ...
  8. I think the only things I have ever shipped with youshop is auto parts - eBay rock auto or Amazon free shipping to Portland Oregon USA thanks - then youshop no problem even for used auto parts
  9. Maxspeedingrods is a known brand name right ?
  10. Yup there’s the cletus seal of approval Well worth checking out crossover steering to sort a lot of problems in one go I think I was down to last days before repay for another cert check so went with the option that was already half built
  11. No photos it was a while back now but was on the modern Lvv cert system Basically 2 bits of 5mm steel plate shaped to the diff tube and boxed in to replicate the mount on the diff pumpkin but on left hand side and slightly lower mounting ears at the top for more clearance - that’s why it needed the adjustable arm Also had to replicate the upper mount on the crossmember / chassis that it mounts to Had a look at my old thread on off-road express circa 2007 but pics are long gone Does seem if you go to the “crossover “ steering conversion then the torque arm becomes obsolete and frees up a lot of room and more flex for serious off-road and may be easier
  12. Yep well worthy of an entry - skid factory will love it cos safari and surely there is some worthy bracketry - tis a very cool well executed clean looking conversion
  13. Yup torque arm on front axle gets in the way of most sumps My “cough” RV8 lux had no torque bar when I bought it and hitting the brakes hard made front axle roll forward on springs - wheels go to left - steering wheel goes to right - very very frighteneing Made a new mount on axle other side from the pumpkin and fitted adjustable torque bar from nz4wdbits - sorted and certed
