  1. I also brought some new suspension which I have fitted just the rear at the moment I hope to fit the front over the next week , also I’ve had the side glass turn up so that’s another job to do anyway that’s all for now
  2. Well it’s been a couple of months I’ve been chasing some wiring gremlins currently have the bottom of dash all pulled out ,I had the car running during lock down and found I couldn’t turn it off , I could turn ignition off and pull key out and it would still run which is not good . i still haven’t found the problem but I think it has something to do with the burnt out blinker stem which is connected to the hazard lights which continually go all the time now even when key is out …so on the lookout for mk1 Sierra blinker unit. I’ve put small bits and pieces back on like left wing mirror guard blinker light foot panels , rear wiper motor and electric aerial etc nothing exciting, but still things adding to get it on the road again. ive taken advantage of COVID and got the car registered with out having a WOF …. Thanks Jacinda
  3. Well I’ve gone the road of getting them made from a firm in Auckland I’m not getting any change from $1500 though
  4. Well not much to report can drive it up and down the rd the kjet fuel injection isn’t running to good leans out when you get to 3500rpm or it’s sucking air from some where , now I’ve just got to work out is it worth spending money on an old Fuel injection or not?? Any way been working on getting front bumper on and lights in bumper mounted managed to put plates on which makes it look more ready for the rd . I managed to make up some templates for the side glass and sent them away to Auckland to get made will be interested to see how they come out as they can only bend glass one way and I probably need 2 ways but the guy I’m dealing with said if I go on the diagonal I should be able to get glass to bend both ways……. So I made my template like this out of 4mm mdf sorry no pics of that but I can show confirmation pic from them anyway I’m hoping to take this for a wof in spring sometime if I can get the time to work on it.
