    Yeh their response is good to hear.

    Although it sounds like a few cars have been stolen from that wharf over the years - a few people were commenting with stories including - @R100 had an 808 taken many years ago never to be seen again.

     

    Speaking of @R100 I think there must be an update coming for his RX5 thread based on photos posted on Facebook?


  2. Yeah going over epoxy. There’s a very slight wavey-ness in the panels where the replacement piece has been welded in (read: lower door skins, lower section of rear 3/4s) need something to try and smooth that out so seeing what people have had success with.

    not sure where you draw the line between between high build primer/polyester filler/bog/paper mache?

    Pretty much get everything from protec? I used their high build urethane a bunch of times for blocking, you can mix it as high build or as a regular thin coat. They are basically the cheap brand but still sell legit automotive paint systems.

    Was waiting for you to chime in with Protec haha, got a link for which type/model number specifically? Catalogue List seems to be as long as your arm..

    I wonder how many years will pass before we all think that 50 was a steal?

    At the start of the thread a good 3 coupe was sub 30...

    Give it until xmas, a good 3 coupe will probably be sub 30 again...

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    Just a note- they are a stones throw away from the estuary.

    Does not bode well..

    I might have to go back and do some digging about that truck. Its still in the system although I presume the rego is lapsed.

    Reg on hold until 13/08/2020 according to nzta site
