  1. 3.5L 2GR or the Hilux 4.0L have the same bellhousing bolt pattern. Would give that thing even more beans and probably use less fuel.
  2. Door issue on old car sounds like loom may have fatigued. Does window performance change as you swing the door open and closed or is it when the door latches shut?
  3. I wonder if they stood back after finishing and said "Yeah, that looks... different".
  4. Yeh and Z3 - vacuum referenced reg on these. Can't seem to find specs as easily as C5 one. This article was interesting though - https://aeromotiveinc.com/aeromotive-corvette-filter-regulator-combo/
  5. Unsure if helpful but C5 corvette's have fuel filter with a regulator built in.
  6. I thought when I watched the video the sounds were coming from a wheel because the frequency of the sound didnt match the speed of anything in frame. Glad you've found it, this thing must be loose to drive. My dad had a C20 vanette for years and mum had one like your original one when were were little kids, was the only 7 seater they could afford!
  7. Yesss with project binky coming to a close, I've been thinking how neat it would be with yaris GR running gear instead of the celica stuff.
  8. Even I've done the above and had zero experience pulling apart a gearbag. All goods.
  9. Yeah my builder is onto it and has been ordering things months ahead, biggest delay has been due to the weather
  10. I think these were H4, it's like being in a fort for adults
  11. Shortage, I needed 2m palings for my place and couldn't get them. Supplier ended up getting us 150x25 retaining boards 6m lengths trimmed down to 2m. Much better finish and only a few cents in it per meter so I'm happy.
  12. I'm heading to some of your delays. Siteworks have come to a halt, site is too wet. Needs to dry out... rain is forecast for the next two weeks straight. Got an email yesterday saying architect has underestimated the cut and fill requirements. So at this rate will probably hit all the same ones.
  13. Very cool and been enjoying the process. Thanks for sharing!
  14. When ANZ told me I'd have to involve a QS I was a bit miffed (~12k) but your post and other similar stories makes me think it's cheap insurance.
  15. Mm I was going to suggest adding a vent or checking the existing one. I think I was reading a project forum somewhere and the factory vent was one of those with a semi retained metal top, except the top was too tight and his axle seals were floating on the axles.
  16. I saw the busa and thought, hmm I don’t remember him mentioning this before. Figured I’d missed the post of you having it. I nearly swapped my sportster for one. Probably best I didn’t. Gave one a bit of a cheeky race on my street triple r, I had him off the mark and a decent lead but he reeled me in and then on motorway I just had no chance!
  17. That finish is nice! Digging the rebated sink!
  18. You're certainly moving at a pace I simply can't match, everything is taking me atleast four times as long!
