  1. They need to be redone. Was thinking about keeping them gold or maybe going a dark grey or gunmetal. My pick out of the three sets of wheels that I tried on it.
  2. Updating with better photos. Did the first thing you do with any new car and tried on my sets of wheels to see what they all looked like. Think I've decided on the Enkeis for her. 6s for the front and 7s for the back. Also gave her a wash and started to clean all the random crap out of the car.
  3. Link to discussion thread
  4. Discuss away here Link to build thread.
  5. After looking at this at my mates house for a while now, I finally decided to buy her. 1980 Mitsubishi Express in need of some love. Plan is to fix the little bits of rust, chuck a motor into her and add some wheels. Started digging through to clean out all of the goodies that came with it and found an original tool kit hidden under the seats Better photos are on the way when it gets pushed outside to be washed in between snow and rain shower.Oh and why its called the Awesome Express,
  6. The new carpet has made a massive difference. Was the un-tidiest bit of the car. Bit un nerving cutting holes in brand new carpet to put it in
  7. Only got a quarter into it before it started raining down here. Really happy with how it is coming along and fitting. Got to hate cutting holes in brand new carpet. It's sent out as a blank
  8. Finally got some new carpet for her, after procrastinating for a long time. Ordered off eBay Australia and arrived in a week. It got the cats seal of approval and this is why I ordered new stuff.
  9. Its coming along nicely. The real tell is going to be me learning to weld to fix the holes in the floor and around the headlights
  10. Had to adjust the bump stops in the front at the same time Might need trimmed some more, will have to wait till she's on the road. Oh, Offset on the Works sits almost perfectly on the van. Back door just clears the wheels. Might be 3 or 4mm in it!
  11. Starting sussing out this van for its wof. Found rust in the front behind the headlights and in the floor under drivers feet. I don't usually start with modifying instead of fixing but the van was too high to fit into the garage. Played with the front torisions and bump stops and it came up quite nicely. Also chucked my Work Equips onto it to replace the knock offs that were on it. Started at this height in the front Ending up taking out 55mm Might have to re adjust after I drop the back with blocks to level her out.
  12. No tang, shes no old Bongo Lowering is on the plan...
  13. Link to discussion here //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/54399-marshs-1984-liteace-discussion/ Tell me how much lower it needs to be and sell me more parts!
  14. Tell me how to improve the little beast here.
  15. Picked up this little van from another forum member on here. Its in need of a bit of attention. Plan is to start on the rust work that needs to be done first and then WOF it. Have been told the headgasket is gone/leaking so that is next on the list once its all road legal. I have a set of 13" Work Equips tucked away in the garage for when this all ready as well.
