  1. I've admired your eclectic taste in automobiles homie, good to see you sharing the latest works!......There's a couple of others worth sharing too haha
  2. Whats the process with rectifying the output bushing issue on the R154? I have a brand new one too
  3. Here's a curly one, I've just managed to register a project Hilux that was brought deregisted. Knowing at the time there were outstanding RUCs owing. But my investigations at the time led me to believe after a vehicle is deregd that any RUCs would be voided. So at the time of getting it legal, passing revin, new plates etc and even purchasing RUCs going off the kms on the dash. I've recently been sent a $400 bill for the outstanding RUCs that were owed when the rego lapsed. What's the go with this? Anyone else struck a similar debacle? Thanks
  4. Lastly Clint, is there anyone in particular who you reccomend i get in contact with? Or just simply pick someone from NZTA page who covers the BOP region? Thanks
  5. Awesome Clint, thanks for input on the matter. Fresh paint on the rails, but not on the underside of the cab though
  6. Any further input or similar experiences to share? Thanks
  7. No rust repairs there Clint, its clean on that side of things Yes, its getting all sorted at the shop. Well basically it has a minor dent in the cross member from coming into contact with a tow ball. Prior to the damage taking place the whole chassis had been cleaned up and painted.
  8. I have a compliance check ( re register) question. I have 2wd Hilux side project that's nearing completion. Factory unmodified, currently de-registered and in the panel shop for repairs, its a had a minor knock the cross member below the radiator which I'm lead to believe it will need a repair cert. I'm happy for this to be carried out, but my panel man thinks it may not be necessary. Would it be liable for the said panel shop to have an approval letter stating a repair cert is not required to keep the compliance inspector happy? Or is there such a thing? Thanks
  9. Roger that, thanks. I knew the were changes made years ago but thought there might be a way around it
  10. Not sure if this is the correct thread? But is there a possible way to send an expression of interest note/letter to the registerd owner of a vehicle if you know the rego plate details? Several years ago I spotted something of interest and I regret not following it up when I had the chance Thanks
  11. My mission from a few weeks back, thought I would share on here To bring the old girl home. Air in the tyres some cold start down the carb, a fresh battery and I drove it out of the barn. So stoked! Got it towed home with my AA membership, then when I was dropped off I took it for a spin round the block and happend to pass the towey haha First wash in 5 years haha New resting spot for now Discussion http://oldschool.co....up/#entry749009
  12. Get the blue one for sure, sucks about the accident
  13. Get you some of this barn find! I was reunited with my lhd 82 yota today. I had to move it from one side of the barn to the other. I fitted a battery and sprayed some cold start down the carb and the old girl fired right up and ran smoothly, stoked! Nothing seized, not bad for sitting for 2 years. I was able to drive it out and back into its new spot. This has kept the dream alive! Hope to have this on the road in the not so distant future Discussion //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/29244-lhd-1982-toyota-pickup/#entry749009
