    There is Absolute Upholstery on Home St in town. They recovered the seat on an old metal chair for me and did a good job. I saw a Porsche 356 and a bagged Chev C10 in there once, they may be pricier being in town.

    Not hard, the one I used was just a universal one from Japan, I bought the biggest I could find which was still only about 1.3m wide
  3. If taking to a fella get them to chuck a couple dowells in to locate the head concentrically on the cylinder, head bolts are a bit sloppy.

    Snoozin's 1981 KPiz Starlet

    Can relate with project disillusionment, my Cedric now has a new home. A long long time ago I can still remember how My project used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance That I could give it some sweet stance And maybe I'd be happy for a while But 2018 made me shiver With every reg on hold I'd apply for NZTA mail on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step I can't remember if I cried When I thought of all the OS stickers applied But something touched me deep inside The day the project died I think the Starlet deserves one more shot though, it's a sweet project

    I like header wrap to keeps temps down and for hiding my ugly exhaust fab. It only needs to last until you put a Barra in it ready for dragweek/wagweek

    Another shit update. I bought one of those $9.50 pit bike exhausts for something to start with. It fit ok as it was but had a lot of angles going on so I cut and rotated the header a few degrees to bring it closer to the engine and make it more horizontal, then cut off the bent up section on the end, flipped it around and welded it on straight then cut a slash to tidy up the old bend. Will weld some nuts on it to use the stock exhaust-swingarm bracket then that should do for now/forever

    Another small job is my new side covers, I was keen to have some but not keen for the factory tumour size so they got trimmed down. They'll get painted up with something particular I have in mind

    My tail light is LED funnily enough, I guess because of the unusual shape also have a TrailTech already on its way, wish I'd seen @My name is Russell post about selling some, been waiting 4 weeks now haha

    Gonna use this guy The fist part is a similar size to what is left of the mount, gonna weld a plate in there and tap some holes to screw the light to, might even use some glue as the screws are pretty small, m3/4 I think. What kinda trouble are your lights having?

    Choice, cheers chaps, that'll be the go then. I need to get my vice setup so I can do it and a few other jobs.

    Have cut the springs but not shortened the shock shaft so they are a wee bit (massively) uncaptive on droop. I saw a dude on instagram shorten his by running the shaft thread down further then lopping the end off so thought I'd give the same a go. I assume these would be hard chromed so grinding that off first would make it easier?

    I have been working on a tail light license plate mount recently, the first version looked a bit average and left a large space between the light and fender. So I decided to chop up the original mount, looks better. I think I'll still chop the rear fender off one day but it'll stay for now.
