  1. 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
  2. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/car-parts-accessories/wheels-tyres/alloy-wheels/listing/2819564525?bof=NtRrTiz4
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. @cletus @Poo ... Best burnout trophy not being defended by one of you two?
  6. Wof successfully acquired on the weekend, so have just entered and paid.
  7. Good luck on the wiring stuff mate! Good to know the motor's running well now though.
  8. 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 would work. However, after pulling out my struts and taking a look at the inserts in them, they looked / felt very new, so decided I may as well get them shortened, and sell the rx7 inserts to save myselft the hassle of shortening and making a spacer thing. (reserve met on trademe if you'd like to buy them lol). Had a mate shorten the 323 inserts for me to keep the springs nice n captive, wire wheeled the strut body, dusted them with some black paint, and got them back in the car the other night. Also replaced the rear shocks, cos why not. Have got new brake shoes, cylinders and pads, so will get around to doing that soon also. Will aim to get the car back on the ground the next few days, and hopefully wof time in the next week or two.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Should be sorting a WOF on my car in the next few weeks, will hold off entering until then. But will be there regardless. Probably won't race that much, am happy to help out on the track again if needed.
  12. That exhaust is gonna be pretty loud? Looks nice though Shit that A pillar 'fix' is great!
  13. Couldn't find a project discussion thread? Nice wagon! The mustard / matt yellow, wheels and lowering make it look choice!
  14. 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 for November.
  15. Are you still southern based? Good work on the motor choice too!
  16. I'm away next week, so won't make it
  17. Looks sweet in that old pic slammed on the ZS’s, will be interesting to see it with them on with the flares
  18. Awesome! great that you got a whole parts car too! Where in Canada did you find it?
  19. Even @Yowzer puttered up in his shitty grey Tiida through the fog with his lights off at 55kph on the open road to Auckland
  20. first meet up in ages! Was a bit late so sharns weren't as widely spread, but will try make it on time next time. Pics for proof there was some old cars there.
  21. Yeh I was just presuming it'd be like it used to be ... 3rd Wednesday of the month
  22. I'm easy for the location - used to be at Ellerslie Burger Fuel (there's a carpark behind burger fuel (Robert St, Ellerslie) on Hurst Street, up the ramp if its not raining and under cover if it is @shizzl Figured it's been a while - so would be good to get out n about next week.
