  1. Hole in the exhaust was an easy fix, but is somewhere i think i will be visting again eventually Stuck all the many many chrome trims back on And backed it into the sun then down the road and reversed up the drive - this side has been drying for a few weeks so it got a quick polish with the big slow grinder then bunged the trim back on this side too, now its all back together. Last pic of a car in this shed got to be parked on the lawn in waiting for me to bung it into storage for a while sheds now starting to fill with boxes and about 2 vanloads of stuff taken to and from storage and the op shops
  2. Probably junk, but likley better than worn out old one? Worth disassembling and cleaning before use and swapping some unworn parts over from the original weber? I would imagine they use weber copy jets. Try 'sherryberg' on aliexpress and cut out at least one middleman. I think @sheepers put an equivalent hitachi or whatever copy in one of his crowns?
  3. nice to see that shitty green frame that someone spent ages taking apart and respraying (but not masking) repurposed to intake tubing mock ups. lewl.
  4. Done a quicky on the painting, minimising the work to get it done, and by done, i mean water proof and ready to roll quick high build prime over the sanded back repaired areas then a blow over with the blue. i mixed a bit much paint and instead of waste it, I got a few sags instead Still, unmasking is just the best Front door bits swapsies. Its surprising how much lighter a car door is without all the trimmings! took bits off all three to make one 'good' one Again, this one fit straight in the hole a treat (after a shim here and a hinge shave there) and now opens and closes the best it ever has so ive decided i quite like the look of these doors and they can stay Tidied out the inside of various mostly empty boxes and various screws, trim and clips, that are now consolidated into one bin Put the grill and headlamp assemblies, nearly all the bulbs now mostly work after a wiggle or a tap. Still a bit of a list of things to do, - Exhaust has a leak, looks easily accessed - handbrake cable buzzes on exhaust - i messed something up when i assembled the rear door, the window snags on the door lock rod when its wound down - sand the runs, flies and dust out the of the paint once it hardens a bit more - polish - clean and install chrome trims I also put the interior of the doors in and gave the dash a wipe. . Looking forward to giving this thing a good blazz again soon! Its mobile and driveable now and only the exhaust really needs sorting for a WoF, and now its together it also means i can start sort a lot of stuff out of the shed and into storage etc
  5. I justoffloaded some to chris, but what do you need? I have a pile of random af34 bits that i will be dumping soon
  6. we will be driving the van down, possibly doing a north island victory tour and then a south island welcome home tour depending on how the timing works between packing up here and house finding down there. But definitely keen on a garage fridge/wanker beer/cup of tea tour of the South Island if we have the time.
  7. thanks duders, i have my storage unit which doesnt need to be emptied right away (ever?), and can probalby leave the Fiats up here in the big barn the wagon has been in, at least for a while too.
  8. Yeah, but the bliss is just rented and the landlord wants it back! Might take you up on the vehicle shuffles bro. Ill let you know.
  9. One of the things i was busy with was a job interview, and i only bloody got it, so gotta prepare for shifting everything 1400km south So gotta get this thing ready to be transported, or maybe enven driven. So to access the drivers side mans turning it around. It only fired up and drove down the driveway and a lap of my test track, and even did a wee skiddy on the way up the driveway I uncovered this in the rear door in 2017 when i derusted this side. What the hell. There were a few other blebs on the outside and bottom so ive swapped the handles and interior stuff over to another door Its from the 125 i wrecked from Levin, ive used a few panels from it now. Rad stickers and brush painted light blue over midnight blue, actual patina! Fits real good I will repaint the rear quarter, front a-pillar and a couple of other minor primer spots on the body but im not touching the rear door so to the front door i think its more effort fixing the rust (and all the bloody bog and sanding that goes with) in the front and rear lower corners, and elsewhere, and the hinge is a bit worn or bent. so ill swap the interior of this over to the light blue front door to match the rear. It isnt much better shape really, but might fit and close a bit nicer.
  10. left that alone for a while, i was in a huff and also busy with other stuff finally gave it a wet sand and filled all the shitty little fisheyes with icing, and put another pretty thinned coat of blue down and it turned out much better pulling off masking tape is the best. then lashings of dinitrol.
  11. spent the last month getting this together and ready to paint. I flippin hate sanding Made the door return real purdy and the front bit Got a new paint gun for the top coat to replace my old one that has started spitting. $18 delivered. Flash as. Tried it out on the shuts So i could put the door on for the first time in a long time So i could notice this, and spend a few more evening sorting that till this weekend BOOM Love the contrast Most of it turned out as good as ive ever done, or could expect for doing it in a dusty garage with the cheapest tools but, i had a new issue ive not had (well, nowhere near as bad) , i got a fair few fisheyes, but all in section that followed one of my passes. Maybe my compressor coughed up a lugie, or maybe the wax and grease hadn't dried right off? . Either way Ill have the repaint that bit for sure, bums. Suggestions to prevent reoccurance?
  12. Wondering if the resistor blowing could have been a symptom/result of over voltage, or voltage spiking? Alternator OK? As the resistor is only dropping the main power feed to the coil, it acted sort of like a fuse (too much heat then boom), but everything else in the cars electrical system may have been over-juiced too? as the are probably the most sensitive items electrically in the whole car the old solid state bits in the module could have been fried too, all the other things (lights, wipers etc) were probably able to handle this (at least for a while), or were not on at the time?
  13. Not personally, but on tme I have bought a few bits from him, A+ recommended trader etc.
  14. clearance from them tangs should be business card too, def not touching. Dizzy looks just like the Bosch one on my ute, so definitely check the wires and the terminal connections on the wee prongs from the dizzy side sensor, they get loose BTW. maybe a GM HEI module could be adapted to work?
