  1. Howat Engineering out in the Hutt. https://howatengineering.co.nz/custom-axles/
  2. Change of ownership. Does anyone know what happens with the info the seller submits? I've bought a car for a family member and silly me gave the seller my details so they submitted that info. If I now submit the buyers side and use my family members info, will that end the world?
  3. Massive thanks to @fletch who came up with the goods. Trip to NP this weekend to pick it up!
  4. Located in Hurworth. Historically famous for its cheeses before most of the village buildings were destroyed in the First Taranaki War of 1860
  5. Have been tasked with finding a car for brother/sister in law. Have found one that ticks the boxes in New Plymouth and was hoping someone could go have a quick gander before I make the trek. Don't need to be a mechanic, just a general once over to make sure it is what it says it is and nothing that jumps out. It appears to have full service history etc. so shouldn't be a lemon. If you're happy to take it for a drive and press all the buttons that would be grand. No pressure, but wink wink nudge nudge @fletch @Bistro @anglia4 I promise I won't blame you if it turns out to be a POS later on.
  6. Bring a big bike. Itl be fun they said. Smallbikes4life

    Silly question, but how are your glowplugs?
  8. Can you press it in? Brace against something and use a jack/something to press it in?
  9. Dear God this is sexual

    Keen to hear results. Have a ute deck I want to spray with a liner product.
  11. I have plenty of memories of heading out and about on the old mans Tasman 20. He's since replaced it with a Gazelle (originally 24ft but has had a flat extension added off the transom so is actually 26ft). No race machines by any stretch but still fund getting around on them.
  12. Put a timing light on it and check timing?
  13. No pics because brakes. New shoes, drums, and cylinders installed. Thanks to friendly part man @GuyWithAviators
  14. New wheel bearings on the RV. Waiting on a box of bits to try get the motor running and then will decide if it's a eastcape job or just take the ol faithful.
  15. Handy work bench to clean the underside
  16. Stripped the wellside down today and started hitting the deck with the wire wheel to see what horrors were hidden. Cancer has set in along the front seam, some holes in the front corners of the deck, and another small hole near the back, but other than that it's just a bit scabby. The outside is solid, and tailgate had a few dents and bog but overall not too bad. Have been chipping off oodles and oodles of paint (must have been a painters ute at some point). Will get the rust sorted and then hit the inside of the deck with bedliner. Will clean and underseal and underside and wheel wells, and then get the outside painted to match the the body.
  17. Nah. Double cabs are dumb. We all know none of us have friends, so why waste valuable tray space
  18. Crikey, sounds like it's lucky you've still got front teeth!
  19. Goals. Found a canopy but it had already been dibsed so hoping sale falls through.
  20. Currently sorting out rear brake parts for wof, and then the stars aligned and managed to find one of these! Pretty excited. It's got a bit of cancer and needs a good tidy up and paint obviously but solid base and worth the effort.
