  1. I got charged for having headlights adjusted while having wof done. I asked them why didn't they check the switch that raises or drops the beams,it was a Nissan taken to a Nissan dealership for wof ffs....they said no worries,I had to make a point of asking them to fix the problem they caused,and re reset the level to where they were in the first place. No clue.

    If the clear is put on before the enamel is cured, otherwise it will need keying up and the scratches will be visible under the clear. You can usually get a nice gloss off the gun so shouldn't need clear.
  3. If it's there it has to work. I've pulled a window out cause wof guy moaned it didn't go down. Got the wof when I went back.

    I'd go for equipment enamel for them.
  6. It is illegal to be painting cars at home. Fumes are meant to be vented and filtered before reaching the outside. I had a go at a neighbor for painting a car outside his house,my 2 kids under 3yrs old were in their splash pool 20ft away. It's not a good thing to be doing. If you would wear a mask to paint,why expose others to the toxic fumes and no fucks given?
  7. Those things are full of resin and tend to leave a mess when they fail. Not too cheap either.
  8. Just take the lens off the car and use a soldering iron from the inside to fix the crack.

    Also make sure you key up the brunox,it's epoxy based and paint will lift off it if not keyed up.
  10. Are you selling any parts off the donor Ute? I'm after passengers wiper arm and driver's seatbelt if you are.
  11. To get the Mazda grill to fit you will have to trim it to fit,from memory the Mazda headlights are smaller. I've done the same on my Ute cause I couldn't find a courier bonnet,so went Mazda bonnet and grill.
  12. I had one when I was 18.....was fun,till I blew the diff and was quoted $600 for a new diff head. So I sold it and the guy that bought it chopped it into a Ute for his lawn mowing business.
  13. How's the wagon coming along con. You gota throw up some pics of that twin blower set up!
