  1. Find some coilovers that aren't buggered - or get yours reccod? Car is arguably worth more to future purchasers certed with 'judz'
  2. Cheers Clint, Still a small risk that the car may have had repairs in the past that I'm unaware of that may be revealed in the entry certification check then ... Looks like the guy has a VIN number assigned to the car (as it's on the cert check he sent me). Is there a way to check that this cert check paper work he's provided me is legit? Might sound a little paranoid, but just wanna make sure.
  3. A few questions from me for a potential purchase I’m looking at Car is an Aussie import, the owner says he has paper work and has taken it for a cert check - and has supplied me with the cert check fail list. Big list of small things, so I’m comfortable I can fix most. If I bring the car from elsewhere in the country to Auckland, I’m presuming I pay a new certifier to conduct a new check? Once the cert is complete, is it a simple process to get a VIN wof and reg?
  4. Had a ton of fun taking this down the strip at Meremere at the drag day back December. Slow racing is just as fun as quick(er) cars I've taken down the drag strip. Was running low-mid 20's all day, then a mate suggested taking off the air filter. Ran 3 mid 19 second passes after that! Sold this as of last week. Had someone approach me offering what I think is silly money for it, so that had me curious as to what people might be wanting to pay. Put it up on FB and it was gone in 24 hours, so must have been priced right and I'm glad it was a quick and easy sale. Was tempted to
  5. Had a quick gander at this marvelous machine and Caffeine and Classics on Sunday. Such a clean and crisp looking car man, you must be proud! Congrats on the Toyo-fest award too!
  6. ohhh yes - good work, that thing will hold the heat really well! Gotta start stacking that firewood now too so it's ready for action.
  7. Bro, having a wheel fall off ain’t no fun, let alone on the motorway! Hopefully the repairs aren’t too major and you’re enjoying it soon
  8. I’m in Papakura, so close by. PM me your phone number and I’ll give you a call
  9. All good - things take time right - Where did you find the ready made rx crossmember for it?
  10. WOF was successful - a few small things to fix before the next one but I'll get around to those in the coming months. Found some chrome end caps for the bumpers - fronts fitted nicely, but the rears didn't quite line up right, and would have meant drilling holes in the bumper which I wasn't too keen on, so on-sold those and will keep an eye out for more in the future. Looking forward to drag day in a few weeks, I'm fairly sure I'll be the slowest 323 to ever race at Meremere! Was tempted to find a spare diff and weld one up for twin spin skids, but people seem to want $200 odd
  11. shit, left the garage and got about 500m from home and a loud banging noise is coming from one of my front struts - turned around so won’t be making tonight

  13. Doesn't matter that it's rusty does it? Purely an engine donor for the yellow mobile + maybe some other limited edition turbo model stuff none of us know about? You've already got the donor LSD, you've gotta get the donor turbo.
  14. Awesome to start from the beginning and watch / read where this has gone ... almost predictable but still so cool! Glad you've got a yellow one, and 2 door too! Sounds like a you may be acquiring a 4th soon too lol
  15. Good luck on the wiring stuff mate! Good to know the motor's running well now though.
  16. So I didn't end up using the rx7 shock insert, they do however fit the 323 strut, and would be useful for someone not wanting to shorten a 323 shock. Only if they're lowering the car 30-40mm though. Not short enough for my springs. I had myself confused for a bit when I compared the two shock types. I had them side by side and the shock shafts are the same length, but the rx7 shock body is shorter, so in theory if I was to space them up (see my paint diagram below), then there would be no benefit to using them (apart from price). Spacing them 'down' however, with a collar type spacer
  17. No idea at the moment - @madaz62 - I don't think he visit's too often. How much you want for your motor? I've sold it already for you.
  18. My brother will be 13beeing his 626 in the next few months, so will flicking off his 2L and 5spd. Freight might be killer from Auckland though.
  19. That exhaust is gonna be pretty loud? Looks nice though Shit that A pillar 'fix' is great!
  20. Couldn't find a project discussion thread? Nice wagon! The mustard / matt yellow, wheels and lowering make it look choice!
  21. sorted some 1" blocks in the back I've got some new rear shocks and new front inserts, I'm going to attempt to use s1/2 rx7 inserts, as they were about a 1/3 of the price of factory 323 ones. Have read that a small spacer is needed on the base of the strut, so will see if the internet is true or lies. Will also look at sorting some rear bump stops, as a previous owner has simply chopped the current ones off on a flat square angle, so that needs to be fixed. Wof has just run out, so will tutu about with the suspension over the next few months and aim for it to be back on the road fo
