  1. I was replying to Nominal's question about only being able to see the arc and not the metal around it. The issue you're describing sounds like the film is still on the inside or outside of the filter or the filter covers need to be replaced.
  2. Lighting the area will help a lot but a lighter shade might also be a benefit. The one I posted above does shades 5-13. Usually 5-8 is only used for plasma cutting but I can imagine it would be ok for low amp mig welding too.
  3. What settings did it have in the helmet? It sounds like the delay was set too slow or the sensitivity too low. I wholesale these helmets now - 4 sensor, huge lens area, all the adjustments and grind mode. We've sold a couple of container loads since November and they're doing well out there. Most places sell them for about $179+ GST.
  4. I've seen this done before on a friend's car. We started with a complete Altezza loom (including most of the body loom) and got it running with a pile of extra loom in the passengers foot well and the clutch switch taped down. The next stage was a long process of cutting wires, testing to see how it ran and then removing un needed sections of loom. Not the fastest way to do it, but meant it didn't require a rocket surgeon to get it going.
  5. Just a note on the free test day at Manfeild - it's not an open invite for all and sundry to come and play on the track for free. It's free for entrants and club members with the idea being that we can take our volunteers for rides as thanks for all the hard work they do. If you want to get on track I suggest attending one of the Envirowaste clubsport events: http://manawatucarclub.org.nz/find-enter-events/club-sport-series/ I'm open to the idea of running another OS trackday with the proviso being that we only use track 3 at Taupo because it's cheap.

  15. Awesome meet guys! Thanks for making the effort to come down. We had perfect weather, free food and good company. Cameron from Burgerfuel is stoked. I think we all agree that this should be the new location for our monthly meets?

  20. The red coupe would be awesome actually @0R10N. That'd look great in the front line up.
  21. Hey guys, this is coming up on Saturday. Cars and burgers = win. I still need a couple of more... presentable... cars to feature out the front of the shop. We've got Greg's beetle and Chris's Holden wagon. It would be nice to have 5 "OS Nice" cars next to the front door. All volunteers skip to the front of the queue for a free meal (burger, chips, drink).
