  1. I found you a T bone steak you may enjoy https://www.manheim.co.nz/damaged-vehicles/000000000005446486/1986-jaguar-xjs-coupe-3-6-coupé?referringPage=AuctionListing Link may not work but it goes to auction tomorrow in auckland, probably very cheep eg $100 + fees
  2. 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
  4. May I recommend using N2O for a heater when it backfires
  5. 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
  6. 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. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/engines/auction-1529182040.htm?rsqid=2a1dfb619cb2417d91f75ff0274b21a3
  7. Mustang drivers can't always get it right.
  8. 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
  9. New page brings new energy into building this tho there wont be many photos to post up as my 15yo digi camera is takestoo good of photos to upload on Os have to slave through photopucket adds insteed
  10. Oh sounds like something I could attend or be a host my workshop is quite big when not filled with customers cars it might motivate me to get some work on my car done, its only been over a year. Is there a finalised date set?
  11. 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.
