  1. yeah its an old Porsche 911 mustard colour, way better irl.
  2. Not too sure yet, going to try out factory pinstripes and some other designs with vinyl and see what I liked when once the bmw badge is on there and afew other things it will break the yellow up a bit
  3. got a bit carried away, ended up with a freshly rebuilt late red top motor, j160 and some Niteparts headers. ended up doing a rwd coolest system conversion which was wayyyy more involved than I ever thought and cost far too much for some crusty old parts. I have no photos of the new setup in the car but its all running and driving now. I just happened to order a set of Whitley tune itb's for my setup, and some kelford cams and a few other goodies to get this thing humming.
  4. been super slack with this thing due to blowing up my 86 and wanting to get that fixed again. made up a numberplate bracket still not completely sold on it will probably re make it, mounted u the moto gadget bar end indicators and rear button indicators also few up and water cut out a new top plate for the forks with inbuilt brackets to hold my new speedo. so many little bits and pieces still being done that you don't see anything of, still waiting on a my 3.5" front tire to arrive before I can put the front brakes on. so far I have bought 3 different headlights and don't like how any of them look on the bike. got my carbs and anything else aluminium on the bike vapour blasted and re built then with new gaskets and seals, also pulled the top ends off the motor and put new gaskets and seals In everything in there just while it was apart.
  5. bump - I sold this about 1.5 years ago when I needed some coin to do grown up things (renovate house) regretted it deeply, this weekend just been I went and picked it back up off the guy who I sold it to. it now has a vvt-i 1jzgte and MAXX ECU all scratch built loom by nz wiring, that about all he changed, got raised up and put on some china 17x9's. while I was in wellington I picked up a set of bcnr33 wheels and slapped them on it and lowered it back down to a semi acceptable height. The plans are smash an r154 in it before I blow up the w58 doing silly stuff, then later on I will put a TD06 on it and hopefully make around 350kw just for shits and gigs, also potentially some 15's of some sort again would be nice. will also unyucky the intercooler pipes. Couple of pics from before I sold it with 9j mk1 on the back and current pics, needs to come down 6mm or so in the back to get it sitting level
  6. couple pictures from doing more assembly. starting to look good now
  7. picked up my gasket kit for the motor last night, hooned that in and gave the motor a few coats of black, didn't come out as good as I wanted but its done now. Then today I started assembly of the bike for the last time, got the wiring loom in, motor and gearbox and seat and tank. really hanging out for my peanut valve covers to arrive too as I can't stand the standard ones. got my tires ahwhile back, after heaps of back and forwards I decided on some TKC80's for maximum trendiness and got them mounted up, was super chuffed with how they were looking and then tonight I went to put the front wheel on and well.. the front doesn't fit, it fouls on the lower for brace so going to have to think up of a solution to that, wither start chopping or go with a smaller front tire which its a 3.5" and currently have 4". Cant wait to get it outside as cameras don't love my workshop lights. Just waiting on swingarm and headset bearings to arrive early next week hopefully and then the wheels can go on and I can see what it really is going to look like.
  8. Yeah there were afew options but wanting to spice it up a little, with the rest of the biking being black it’s sort of the centre piece, will be less in your face when it has the bmw badge on and some pin striping too.
  9. got my tank back from paint today and couldn't resist sitting it on with the subframe and seat to have a glimpse of what its going to be like. got me pining to get it all together
  10. been hanging out waiting for some stuff to arrive. frame and wheels and a few other little bits came back from powder coat. turned out so good couple little bits of pitting but once the motors in you won't see those also got my seat back from lewis what is amazing couldn't recommend him enough. also some moto gadget barend and pin indicators came in got a modern motorcycle speedo and tail light but haven't got photos, currently the carbs are getting vapour blasted and im waiting on a top end gasket and seal kit for the motor to come in so I can rebuild that and paint it and then I can start putting the bike together, and make the last few parts for it, exhaust, battery box etc
  11. yeah talk here or something
  12. car was going great until the afternoon when It started to get a bit of a bottom end knock. so I cleaned the interior and put a red brix I picked up and Kurt made me a sweet knob that's about up to date, picked up a new motor and a j160 off Phil to slam in, new motor is a fresh redtop bottom end with big port head and 286 cams or something, I will be putting my stock head on for now until I can be bothered going link, ordered all the parts for my j160 conversion too. also managed to get some stock metal rear guards without big in them which ill get thrown on when it goes into the panel beaters for a little bit of rust/im too lazy to do it myself. Discussion -
  13. bogged it up and went drifting at manfeild got sick of having a mismatched car so got a rusty bonnet painted to match and got some new front wheels too 14x8 -12 R101 then towed it up to meremere for the annual 86/70 day they have up there, took home a prize for best driving style which I was happy about
  14. had this thing a bout 8 month or so now I guess, thought I better make a thread to keep track of what goes on with it. bought it off callum from down in Christchurch. Looked like this when I got it, some people will know this car, basic run down of when I got it. Lisse spec ae85 trueno -Bluetop 4age, t50, t series rear end with dropped lower arm mounts -bc coilovers -bunch of poly bushes, front rca's, power steering knuckles, manual rack. that's about it really, simple fun car. drove back home with some alright guys little Hondas and some fancy gt2 porchse once I got it home I put smaller tires on it and lowered it a bit then after about 3 weeks of ownership I got reversed into and that smashed the front end up a bit, new rad support, new bumper (still haven't put it on yet) and still trying to find a good bonnet and corner lights. went and bought some new wheels, 14x8.5 -15 mk3, rolled the guard and found some bog.
  15. finished all the fab work side of things so stripped this thing down to a bare frame. gave the motor a quick scrub up, waiting on a new top end and carb rebuild kit to turn up as the pushrod seals are a little leaky so I might as well do it all while its apart and get the carbs sent away for vapour blasting to clean them up then ill spray the whole thing black. tried my hand at fibreglassing and it didn't turn out tooo bad, not super happy with how it turned out but I know what to do next time for better results, sent that away to get covered by one of the chch boys. now is just a waiting game for shops to open back up to sandblast/powedercoat all my stuff so I can re assemble it all and do some skids.
