    Hello MARTS-PL310 to make me find this easier link me into the conversation. I do still have the spare car & since I now have a wagon I do need to wreck the parts car to make more room. It has a rusty floor also & bottom of pillars are rusty also but is straight. shipping would cost you alot unless your visiting nz for a holiday. Nice car tho, could you make your own build thead, people get bored with my very slow progress so it would be good to see another one to help inspire me to do more work on mine.
  3. The 515,000km Maxima reluctantly dragged this back home yesterday but it was good until it got to my driveway & remembered it was a FWD dragging lots of weight up a gravel driveway at 930pm The next day I found out the pictures were too big for this site Oh well
  4. May I recommend using N2O for a heater when it backfires

    If you want power for cheep I have a M54B30 I can sell you in a E46 coupe shell For $1200 or if you want it as it is now (driving with wheels) $1500

    I'm sorry but I don't endorse using a M4x engine of any discription & spending over $10k to get it spinning 10k and the car will be no more valuable than it is with the M20b20 Buying this will be so much easier & cheeper & would add value almost equal to what you spend.

    I have been doing a little on this when I can & today since I have finished refitting the rare option (for NZ new) heater I was able to fill the car with coolant & run it until warm I can report no leaks from heater & thurmostat still works. Water stains shown are from driving around with wiper spindles removed many years ago & the new goal is to get this back on the road before I restore interior etc. So while outside I gave it its first car wash in over a decade then drove for a few 100m's round the carparks

    Mechanic job auckland

    What rate are you offering for a trained mechanic that is on to it? I don't want the job but most are either leaving the field or city to better paying jobs so unless you're paying 60k or more good luck with your search.
  12. My customer has recently purchased this vw & maybe interested in getting some $$ back to justify his purchase

    Monsta01's 1979 Datsun 160j sss discussion

    I think the number of coupes was approx 130 in nz and about 300+ were sent to aust they were ment for SE asia market. As for the sedan I have heard of a few au stanzas that were sent here but dont know of any here apart from the rally car that enters the silver furn rally ect. My Pa10 pre dates the aussie model and had jdm std equipment no borgwarner or single carb in sight. But its not known where it's from but recently I have found a badge for a '77 Auster matches the embossing on the back of the front seats. Anyway cool car and good work. The dyno is most likely the clutch
  14. Workstore in east tamaki is my best recommendation. They also have small workshops with power for approx $750/m

    Autumn Jap/Olds meet AKL 2015

    Just stamp your foot make the date 28th or 29th if people rather go to another event that is how it goes there is always something on to conflict with it. I can come on the 29th but only maybe the 28th due to working.
