  1. Where did you get your DOT push to connect bulkhead fittings?
  2. Have you considered making an extra LWB version?
  3. Have a question on retrofitting rear seatbelts, my Merc ('65 Fintail) would of originally had fixed diagonal seatbelts for the rear seats - there's an OEM mount in the top of the parcel shelf and in the bottom rear bulkhead/firewall towards the centre, but no mounts in the rear wheel tub area so can't have been 3 pointers, just a two point diagonal. Id like to upgrade this by poking a hole into the rear wheel arch to add a 3rd point and fit retractable unit to the factory mount on the rear parcel shelf and maintain the factory centre mount for the receiver. however I see there is this in the s
  4. You’re just going to have to wrap you block in carbon and shoot for 600hp then.
  5. Compound charging the 3L would be way cooler. /ling
  6. Howdy, been awhile. Life got in the way there for a bit; moved out of Auckland (subsequently moved house a couple of times with the Merc spending a bit of time in storage), had a baby etc. but Xmas holiday period has allowed me to make some progress. I wasn’t happy with the tabs I had welded on the upper rear airbag mounts, so ages ago I drew up some flange things and had them laser cut, finally got around to cutting the old tabs off and welding on the new flanges so thats all much tidier.

  7. Does that mean one year WoFs on 30 year old parts?
  8. Why no petrol? It’s not like you’ll be moving it every day

    Anyone got any high build primer recommendations?
  14. When I looked into it ~5 years ago I only found 3 types of 15in tyres that were manufacturer rated for a 10in wide rim, there's the Pirellis(?) that go on the back of a Countach/ 930 Turbo. some other high sidewall tyre and the only low profile tyre I could find was the Avon Semi slicks that go on the back of the fancy pants Caterham - these were $500/piece from memory. just a side note if you care.

    Autoblast from memory are $275+ GST/ hr. I got a text from them last month saying they were doing 15% off their rustproofing system for the month of March, if you go that way might be worth asking if they’ll still honour that.
  17. I imagine that was made with prepreg? Which would make alignment possible
