  1. Fuck me that heavy fab work is hard case. What size rods/amperage were you using on that bucket(?) Repair?
  2. Thanks Amy! Will definitely keep it in mind. Your rx3 is super tidy and would look mint!
  3. Cheers for the offer Richard! I've let my mate know, he's pretty interested in the wagon and maybe the charger but will let you know. I'll also keep them in mind for mine.
  4. Hey guys, Might need to move this to a different category if it's wrong but anyway I'm chasing some wedding cars for 2 separate wedding later this year. Wedding 1: The first wedding is for my good mate. The date is for the Saturday the 26th of September. Looking for at least 2 cars, possibly 4 but it comes down to availability and costs to work with their budget. He is ideally after Australian Muscle, early Holdens in particular (e.g. kingswoods, premiers etc) but beggars can't be choosers so also the likes of old falcons, valiants or even American muscle. The venue is located in Clevedon, south east Auckland. would be approx 3 hours work, picking the groomsmen and bridesmaids up from different locations (close to venue) and driving to the venue. Possibly even waiting around for the ceremony to take pictures afterwards. Wedding 2: This is for my own wedding. The date is the 12th of December. Located in Mangawhai, about 3 hours as well. I'm only after 1 car, a tidy rotary, needs to be 4 doors to fit 4 girls and tidy but also ruckus, This will be paired with my 1300 so have to make sure it's completed this year haha. You will be picking up the bridesmaids from close by and taking them to the venue and maybe hang around for some photos after the ceremony if you like. Obviously you will be paid for your time and services. We will cover fuel and reasonable cash, beers, spirits as required. I know this is well in advance but a lot of planning is being done for both weddings haha. Please let me know if you or someone you know might be keen. Thanks in advance! Tai
  5. My bro is one of the chefs at Fantail and turtle. Mean feeds and great beer on tap!
  6. Just need to work out what pressure and type of oil is running through whatever system you're doing and whether the an lines/fittings are rated for it. Not much help but I'm sure it would be easy enough to Google or call your local hydraulic shop or an part supplier.
  7. Might be an idea to check all the terminals and the relay.
  8. Glass guys are pretty good to deal with. They're based out in Wiri but are mobile.
  9. Also finally got my Escort flares off Bruce a few months ago. Going to chop them up and have a crack at fibreglass work, moulding them a bit better to the 1300 and getting the fitment right. Theoretically it looks easy enough but will soon find out. The guards didn't cost a bomb so not a great loss if I butcher them haha. And yesterday I finally got a call from Murray at Weber Specs saying that my carb is ready so shot around after work to pick it up, along with a malpassi fuel pressure regulator. He's done a top job but damn he is expensive, even with mates rates ! Ah well gotta pay for quality so let's hope she's purring when she fires up. That's all for now anyway, off on holiday in a few weeks so probably won't be anything to update until maybe December if I find spare time to work on the old stead. Chur, Tai
  10. About a month ago I also decided to clean up my fd alternator. It was brand new but sat in a wet box in storage for about a year so oxidized pretty bad. I dismantled it, stripped it back, and repainted it in cast iron silver and black (looks more glossy and slightly metallic in person) and reassembled it with stainless fasteners. Came out pretty sweet for a can job but will see how it lasts. Before: After:
  11. Haven't been up to too much lately. Just stuck on the grind at work and super busy, however I've picked up a few bits and pieces for the old girl. As my old Speedhut gauges are CANBUS and am no longer running an ecu, I have purchased another set of mechanical gauges to use as well as fuel sender. Basically the same design as my other ones but have changed it a little. Also found another pair of Recaro fishnet seats for cheap which are in better condition than my others but are also narrower to suit the limited space in the 1300. And I've grabbed a few Bosch MEC723 coils.
  12. Might be worth contacting steel and tube as well
  13. Well this thing still hasn't left the garage yet. Funds have slowed down greatly now as well as we've started saving for a house pretty seriously but still putting a bit away for it. Motivation was on a decline so went to the shop and got it a nice and shiny air filter (actually ended up returning and getting another as the 4.5" was too tall for the little 1300). I also dropped in to Weber Specialties to have a catch up with my old mate Murray. He's convinced me to bring in the IDA for him to have a look at as it's setup is a little unknown (previous owner had it on both a bp and pp setup), and he's going to sort a throttle wheel and help me shorten the cable. Looking to sort a malpassi fuel regulator for the old girl as well. In the pipeline I'm also looking into the ignition setup and seeing what options are available,so plenty of reading up to do get my head around the ideal setup. Cheers
  14. Saw this thing about a week or so ago parked up outside a shop off target road in wairau. Knew it was yours.
  15. Also with the exhaust repair was it a hole they welded up or did they cut out a section and weld that in? Can be a bit of stuffing around with that type of work sometimes.
