  1. Yep, can leave at mine no worries.
  2. i use these https://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/-0S8AN6SE/title/ear-plugs-2-0 for surfing as i have bad surfers ear. They cut out the wind but still let you hear, and come with various bits to let you size them to your earholes - recommended They have come out with a v3.0 now, so wait till T7 puts the v2 on special (the price is more than i paid from a proper surf shop a couple years ago, just first link i found)
  3. Wow. Thats the 'manual' trifecta. Gonna need metalwork, woodwork, and sewing before you can do any 'home ecc' in the back. I believe in you.
  4. Sporty! Probably better parts availability than all mine put together.
  5. When i dropped of the sedan, i dug this out of its hidey hole next to the wagon Change the jetting on the webers a bit, put in 50 idles (up from 45) which has mostly cured the off idle flat spot (have 55s to try, and cold starts) and 125 mains which did not fix the rich on WOT issues as much as i thought (down from 145, i also ordered 135s but i guess that was a waste. I may order a small set of mains (like 100 size) and some jet drills. damn carbs. Anyway, running well enough to be put to work Final dump/scrap run loaded up and ready to ship out Looks so smol on the road next to modern traffic Scrap dudes came over for a barry when were on the weigh bridge **////** and next to the 1969 original
  6. Been pretty busy getting my shit sorted and moving to dunedin. Settling in now, so a bit of a belated update on the ol 125. On the way to the WoF man, gave it some doort and it started running on 3. FUUUCK Turned out the old greasy filter sock got cookie cuttered. Ripped them all off and ran #nofilter Underside up on the hoist, i never see this view otherwise oil is mostly cavity wax, but there a pretty bad diff leak, again, not enough to fail tho, so woot! Thats all 3 road legal ready for convoy in a couple of months. Then pretty much straight into storage, not actally had these side by side before, Spot the differences, 1969 model italian mid sized executive family sedan vs 1989 model polish farmers truck storage for the next couple of months
  7. Ha. Fresh pic post* WoF at the Repco round the corner from my mechanic. Was absolutely pishing down, dudes in his ute sharning and reminiscing, and talking up the facebook, while im smiling and nodding in the rain, tapping the starter trying to get the fan belt to a spot where i could see the numbers to get a slightly shorter one. His FIAT twin camtip of the day - get a loose block and put a tight head on it. Also, do a skid Rokay
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. I justoffloaded some to chris, but what do you need? I have a pile of random af34 bits that i will be dumping soon
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
