  1. I use Terei Brothers platers in West Auckland, but any electroplater can do it, just ask for either gold or silver passivating I just send in a bucket of old dirty rusty parts, and they come back mostly mint, not always though depends on how bad the rust is, pitting etc wont be fixed unless you prep and polish the parts first.
  2. man this project is huge - Looking forward to seeing the body resurrection updates, its all way above my skill level, so its going to be cool seeing/learning about the body work as it progresses
  3. Gotta say the car looks amazing man - love the hub caps/walls OG look
  4. rad looking car - how much was it for all that rusty projectness? Vote buying a wrecked 300c and dropping your body over its chassis
  5. Traded into a set of proper coupe seats, when you hear the term rocking horse shit- this is them. The seats I had were coupe pattern, but had sedan style black(instead of chrome) recliners, which don't include the foot and hand release for rear passengers. They were also ripped and needed repairs, so to score these was a massive bonus. They have been retrimmed by someone who obviously has glaucoma, and not quite the right pattern, but it means I can bolt them in, ill look tidy and will pass any test as long as you aren't a train spotter. Have also bought repro door trim as mine was w
  6. Tiny update, but one nevertheless Painted up my $250 rx2 steering wheel, it was sun faded and cracked, filled the cracks with resin. Colour not quite the same as original, but I dont care, beats paying $2k like others do, painted the gear knob to match, and got a repro shift pattern badge to suit.
  7. wow, a lot of skill there, looking really good
  8. absolutely amazing build love seeing updates

  10. Yeeeooow - haven't seen this thread since the heart transplant! Best decision you ever make - best!
  11. More goodness underway!
  12. 2.5 Manawatu mufflers reso, into AES/PAC rear, both great quality, the rears are really good at keeping noise down, will have to see though, have built exhaust in 4 parts, so can change up sections easily if needed
  13. Some big jobs are underway, sills have been repaired. rear 1/4 removed and the fabricated replacement is taking shape. Also another shit attempt by the last panel beater uncovered and had to be rectified on the A pillar/cowl area. Smaller jobs include, Fuel tank has had the dents pulled out. I discovered that while I was looking through my dash parts, (as that will be one of the first areas i will be starting to assemble), I found the heater core was blown out, and leaking. Have had a new core made, and had to locate a NOS heater tap, which I have luckily found but cant be sent
  14. 100% will not hate on a motor swap - if i owned it id have a 13b PP rotary in it before sunset. looks like a great car, your choice of motor will have it singing
  15. that'll sell in a heart beat - so badass
  16. Exhaust nearly finished, twin 2 inch, into 2.5 resonator, over diff into AES/PAC boiler. Brief was I had to retain factory heat shields, top job!
  17. Dropped off the old money pit to choppers, instructions to build exhaust and get through repair cert, maybe skim her up if $ allow ready for paint
  18. Looks fking amazing! Top job man Enjoy the thrashing at chrome
  19. man that's mad how quickly this has progressed - well done!
  20. Going by your profile, you live in BOP though aye? thats a long way to travel for panel work, was there no one closer?
  21. Repairs looking good, i didnt even know the shed existed until very recently, and its close to home, they seem to do some great work
  22. Choppers halfway through fab on the 1/4, shaping up nicely tho. Also scored a rare asf NOS front guard! *pics out of order
  23. they say its easier to ask forgiveness than it is permission - hows that going for you and the mrs now?
