  1. I'll try make it, maybe just a short visit even. Got some packing to do before heading south on a kawabunga snowboarding trip
  2. Not much of an update but I decided these wheels could use a clean up. So removed the bolts and started with 600 grit wet sand The couldn't locate my 800 or 1200 grit so left it at 600 and tried my best to polish it. Results are better than where I started but not satisfied yet, I will return with more sandpaper! Now I want new hardware too, the old stuff is too rustic to suit the polish
  3. Attend the whangarei oldschool meet and got some sweet pics Also replaced the pitman arm and fresh alignment that's all, I just wanted to share the pics tbh.....
  4. Hmmmm..... Boozy zoom from burgerfuel, providing you have a sober d ofcoarse
  5. Also pinched the fish nets from my green car as I find factory seats uncomfortable. Was trying to buy another set of fishnets but seems going rate is $700 which is stupid. I paid $150 for these and they're 9.5/10 condition. May aswell go buy brand new recaros instead. Stole the exhaust while I was at it and threw a flexi in, and mounted it more solid with cotton reel style mounts. Definitely the way to go.
  6. So ran into issues trying to source factory rear shocks and after much frustration this happed... I pinched the suspension and wheels from my green car as that's parked up with compression issues.... Starion struts, starion Lower arms, lowering springs and mirage rear shocks Sad to see this car like this again but it's also given me motivation to start fixing the rust and bodywork properly
  7. I never wanted to modify this so tried to make it as Nanna spec as possible by adding a blanket to the rear seat and a monsoon to the driver's door. Also straightened the front bumper out as it had obviously had an oopsie at some point. Took it all the way to beach hop even and had no issues
  8. I've had this 6 months now so decided it can get its own thread So I swapped my 82 l200 ute that I had done endless hours on back to the guy I bought it off for this beauty. A 1982 ex lancer gsl Originally 1.6 auto but has now got a big block 4g63 sohc 8 valve and 5 speed manual conversion. It had no wof or rego when I got it I put four new tyres on, replaced the fart cannon exhaust tip with a normal one and a few minor things it got a wof. And I daily drove the shit out of it
  9. Bit slow on updates, drove the shit out of this over summer and loved having it legal again. Probably chewed through nearly a dozen tyres Because I just can't resist a cheeky burnout The new exhaust has been absolutely ruined in the mid section thanks to all the speedbumps in whangarei... yay But it's been parked up again as a water line burst little to my knowledge and it got cooked. At this point it still ran and drove but used water so I went and ripped a classic 5th gear skid for the boys at a birthday party and now it really doesn't want to run haha The ideas are flowing for my options right now but aunty westpac says otherwise
  10. It's been a minute..... Here's some progress I guess ? Ditched the borg Warner diff idea when I had a mind explosion. Now has a s14 rear end I'm trying to modify into it. The surgery started with small cuts and ended up at this current state... definitely in the deep end over my head but all decisions have happened slowly with plenty of good advice from mates that are experienced in this field of torture. S14 subframe was purchased for one 18 box of 7p Cody's, no covid or rfb tax to be seen Obviously next step is to make a new rear chassis to accept Nissan plague into the lancer. This is a huge step and learning curve for me so may be awhile before another update Also a sweet handbrake I scored cheap And a sweet meme that suits this car
  11. @MACKAZ bumped into Daryll yesterday and heard the plan. Will be keen for burgerfuel
  12. Man I wish I had your level of OCD !!! I'm actually so excited to see progress on this car again, its been far too long.... Makes me want to buy another one but aunty westpac says no
