  1. Jesse's 4x4 l300 yarns

    Oh sweet! Yeah absolutely kicking myself at the moment as that super rusty white one I wrecked out a couple months back had an lsd and I thought they came standard on em so just chucked it but jacked this one up today and it's open ass end boooooo.
  2. Jesse's battle bus l300

    Pumped up the 32s today and they hold air which will be sweet to keep it rolling, they're bald though so I've got a set of 31s to go on. Looking pretty boss though!

    Then within an hour off having it off the trailer I had the front torsions wound up and test fitted one of the wheeeeeels The grub approves too.
  5. So umm, yeah, this is now mine. Discuss here Partners grandparents have had it the last 20 odd years and it failed it's last wof on a bit of rust in the tailgate area so asked if I wanted it, being that these are fucking rad I obviously said yes! Went down to oamaru and picked it up this weekend, actually runs pretty good too, bit spluttery on startup but once it's going she's good, is a 1.8 g62b so it's pretty gutless. Has rust especially around tailgate hinge area but I grabbed a mint tailgate a few months back so that's half the work done. The old fella has barryfied it nicely, has a big fuck off vacuum gauge on the dash and a oil pressure gauge sticking out of a hole in the dash. Has been painted a beautiful shade of "fence paint green". Plans are to fix rust and get it a wof, lift it a bit, mud tyres (which I've already got along with some sweet 15x8 alloys) not gonna bother trying to tidy it up, it's pretty rough and I kinda like it like that. Eventually kit it out as a camper but lada takes priority over this. Check this flash Shit out, Still works too!

    Man I fucking love these things, no idea why but I pine so hard for them over the more popular escort vans.

  8. Jesses lada sharn thread

    Ah it does have a twin cam! I was wondering that, may have to get it, I heard the "s" models have lsds in them too

    Haven't done anything with this yet, but have some more photos, apologies for blurry photos my camera screen lens thing is cracked haha. Got the steam cleaner onto it this avo as well!
  10. Jesses lada sharn thread

    That's along the lines of what I want, sufficiently slammed, unsure on reyums though, I'm a big fan of whitewalls on stock steelies with hubcaps, trims etc all on. Like this

    Sorry guys in twizel for my godsons 2nd bday so zero updates!
  12. Jesses lada sharn thread

    Sorry I didn't have much time to stay and chat/help! Was meaning to ask, how did the imp retrieval go? Also @doullama I was considering that 4g13 minisprint engine that's on the tard, would be pretty awesome but pretty spendy haha.
  13. Jesses lada sharn thread

    Been trying to get outside jobs at work the last couple days just so I can gaze at it's beauty! Didn't realise there was such pine for them! Glad you guys like it, been given so much Shit at work for it haha. Obviously I want to restore it to stock to help with the re-vin, but, I've been trying to think of engine conversion ideas.... we had a written off altezza with the beams and 6 speed sitting in our yard but someone else bought it the other day and I thought that would be a pretty sweet idea, there's the obvious fiat twin cam, but they don't yield a heap of grunt. Don't wanna go v8, I want something with all the doorts that revs to 10k haha I just feel something like that would suit it more. Thought about tang and desprang, not a heap of room in the engine bay so that could even be a goer haha, any suggestions?

    This is good to know, yeah ladapower seems bloody cheap, gonna have to save up and throw a couple grand at them and do one big order to save on shipping I think. Crazy what you can get for them brand new, couldn't expect to find anywhere near as much stuff for my mitsis as I have for this. How long does stuff usually take to arrive from there?
  15. Jesses lada sharn thread

    Cheers guys I'm pretty bloody happy with it to be honest. Has anyone used the website "ladapower.com" before? They do international shipping and have unbelievable amounts of new lada parts for these, brand new panels and everything. Cheers @Carsnz123, might have to take ya up on that! Does the Cedric spin over? @Big Value Buddy I wish I'd have it done by wagnats but there is a lot of rust to deal to so not next year at least haha! May still come up in Phils (my mate from hanmeet) volvo though.
