    Drove C10 (for work) to certifier n Levin this morning. Saw a small convoy of CDL, BVB and Steelies going through Otaki when I was on my return trip in a mates car. It actually bummed me out that I can't make it Have fun guys and girls!
  2. Holy shit Bam! This is too cool, so stoked for ya man!

    The rust is the least of the problem, it is so bent out of shape its ridiculous. The back side of it is pretty clean but it is a cheap reproduction panel that fits really poorly so like I said I'm really not fussed at this point. The dark rust is from water getting under the 12mm thick layer of bog.

    Ditched all the bog and rusted the entire tailgate. It is in really poor condition so rusting it really isn't an issue as I will have to replace it at some point regardless.

    I actually did that yesterday @kws

    Yeah, not the first and won't be the last to say that.....as much as I agree with you, I genuinely like the look.

    Well this is the last update for 2017. The tailgate on the old girl has pissed me off since I got her due to the fact that the shit ton of bog was cracked and ready to come out. I attacked it with a flathead and a hammer and holyshit some bugger spent a long time laying in filler and sanding!!! As you see the rust looks rad! So a quick blast with the grinder and a splash with a vinegar and salt mix I added to the look with some instant rust I genuinely love the rust/patina/rat look and have no plan of painting the tailgate until its ready to clear.

    We are legal! Got its WOF on Thursday Threw a stereo in during the week, the speakers are rubbish so thats something else I need to address. Got some "mexican style" material from Petes Emporium to chuck on the seats. Looks good IMO considering it was $20 of material compared to the absurd prices "authentic Mexican throw blankets" go for. Spent today removing the old shitty tints that had faded so much they were clear. I have removed shitloads of tints from various cars (we do vehicle compliance repairs at work) and have come across my fair share of stubborn ones. Fuck me the old girl was next level bullshit. All the glue stayed on the glass so I spent friggin ages cleaning all that off. Gave the bumpers and trims a quick flick with autosol to make em shine a wee bit too. I am thinking about painting the headlight surrounds black to match the grille, not 100% sure yet tho

    Wof went well. Failed on minor things like horn to work, washers to work, rego bulb lens missing, wheel bearing adjustment/grease balljoints, adjust hand brake and switch some tyres around so load rating matches on each axle. All nice and easy shit So had a day off from spinning spanners today since last weekend was filled with it and work has been hectic as all hell. Instead we went cruising in the wag. My girls hated it when I first brought it home but after a couple of cruises they were coming round but today the penny dropped and they understood the appeal of an old wagon. They loved the attention that goes with having an old car but most of all they loved parking on the beach, dropping the tailgate and eating lunch. Making summer memories with my kids is so heart warming and doing it in the wag is just too friggin awesome! Best decision I have made was getting the old girl!

    Been a rad week of cruising, old girl is happy as all fuck. Spent an hour or so machine polishing all the white shit off the paint. Apparently it was an attempt at waxing that went all wrong. I am stoked with the results! Wof day tomorrow, here's hoping she sails through

    Compression test was all good Played with the timing and carby and she is happy girl! Rad as fuck result. Painted the grille too.
