    Welder buying spam

    Thanks guys, I've bought the Weldtech EZITIG 200 now to learn how to weld, bit different to MIG/metal-glue-gun.

    That's a good idea, would have been good in that spot since I could get to the other side.

    More chemotherapy for the little Honda. Not the tidiest welds, I was very conscious of not putting too much heat into it. But its solid and straight and rust free.

    Their EZITIG 200 is the lowest price so far at $1650 incl gst. Weldingsupplies don't list the price now, which is weird. So I've asked.

    Thinking about buying an ACDC TIG for a max of $1500 if possible for a decent one. Does anyone know if any of the suppliers have an end of financial year sale, or is that not a thing? BOC's website has the smootharc 185 for the normal $1511 +gst so no sign of a sale there. Yet at least.

    First patch welded in, I was a bit worried about the 50 year old steel but it didn't seem any different than new steel. Came out ok Also for motivation I put the bike cluster roughly where I want it on the dash:

    Ausy steel replacing rusty bits, just tacked in now but all reference measurements look good! The inner wheel arch there is just covered in glue it'll tidy up nicely later. This sill is not so happy, but I'll keep chipping away at it. This bonnet support frame is quite rusty. The outer skin is pretty good, so I am thinking I could tidy up the skin then make a fibreglass mould and play around with making two bonnets. One with a hole for the trumpets and one without. The vents would be pretty hard to make but I'll see. I thought this was funny, this is the complete fuse box for the whole car:

    Haha that's cool but tortron has offered to go have a look already, which is awesome.

    myKool just pointed out that Zebra Onehunga just got an AE95 Carib with the axle/diff/propshaft I need. But I'm in Wellington. How do I get it? I'd pay someone to remove it but no idea who'd be able to.

    Small update, needed to take the dash out for the rust repairs. It's nice working with something with such basic electronics compared to the 200SX body loom swap/1JZ working with s13 stuff. This relay is so cool looking: Donor panel:

    Nissan 180sx speedo with Dakota Digital

    For anyone that might come across this, the main issue was bad solders on the speedo's board, not visibly bad to the naked eye though. I resoldered 80+ that I could get to and it now works. Guess that's 29 year old electronics for you. And 2P (Yellow wire with green strip) was not the input, it looks to be an output of the speed reading sent to the factory Nissan ecu. The correct input has '+' and some Japanese writing on it. I used a translating iphone camera app which tells me it is: "Powdered curry for making of sauce" The wire is Yellow with a Blue strip.
