    There is a place up in Porirua called Reklaw Upholstery, no idea what they are like but was going to do some research on them for the future.
  2. I have had this question before and the answer is yes you can have a bi-modal exhaust, but one side has to be quiet, and the other side has to be more quiet. ie: you cannot have quiet and loud modes. So effectively exactly what you and Cletus have said.
  3. You can't get a copy. That's what I'm saying. We sometimes shares parts of the paperwork but never the entire file. Or not that I know of anyway.
  4. Fact of the matter is, we know that some people will change their car as soon as it is certed. Either by giving it lots of rear camber, fitting stretched tyres, changing the seats or whatever. But any cert done these days has a plethora of photos taken with the cert. If the car is involved in an accident then we can be asked to compare photos of when it was certed compared to the components it was when it was in the accident, if they don't match then insurance cover may be declined, the driver can be done for use of an unsafe motor vehicle etc etc etc. Much the same as changing a vehicle after a WoF, except there is photographic evidence to show the state of the vehicle when certed.
  5. Typically we don't share the paperwork with vehicle owners and in 1999 there was scant paperwork even recorded. If you want some detail in particular we can recall the paperwork and search for you. It costs $50 to recall out of storage.
  6. It's all kept in storage. What year was your cert done?
  7. Will require TAC application because you are potentially changing the factory suspension pick up points.

    Oh yeah, forgot to say. Guard is mostly welded on and I ground most of the backbone off smooth. Needs a bit more welding and trimming but on its way to good.

    Little bit more progress plus I sorted out all my parts tonight of what I definitely won't use and what I "might" use. The box of "might" use is quite small now so need to decide whether I'm going to paint it or keep it ratty for summer. Probably ratty for summer. Make sure everything works and pull it apart in winter for a tidy rebuild.

    Anyone that was passengering from Auckland able to take a boring Euro diesel from Auckland to wherever you're all meeting before the ride? Chris Morresey will bring it to me from there.

    Fucked my back at the end of August, taken a few weeks to get my back sorted enough to bend over to do the twist and shout. I spent a couple of hours mocking up some more tonight. Tomorrow handlebars and weld on the rear guard... Not sure if I want to rock the leg shield or not, easy enough to make the call once it's nearly finished though.
