    Sheepers' RA28 Celica

    oh man i can totally relate to the back issues i have a herniated L5-S1 disk , causes me nothing but pain. some times it livable but if i pinch the nerve cluster i'm fucked for months! i need to find the motivation to get work on mine too, its been moved a few times, set up in a new shed. but i just haven't touched it in years . i cant even remember what i was doing on it last time. my build thread is lost in oldschool somewhere. probably gone its been so long so like ah , do you have any spare ?, like motivation , where do you find it ? is it expensive ? how much for a gram ?? looking like a cool rebuild, are you going to do any other head work ? how many limbs were the cams ? if you don't mind me asking

    re-registering a vehicle

    i don't have any of his details , i just knew him through a mate of a mate type deal, and it was just a first name thing. i looked over the car, it was good, i gave him money , that was it done. i haven't been successful in finding out anything else or where he has moved to . yes its still on car jam, but that doesn't give me any of the last owners details . i haven't paid for the report, if i buy that will that give me the last registered owners details ?? ?

    re-registering a vehicle

    hay guys, so i have read through some of this , and it does make me a little worried . . . so story is i bought a car about 15 months ago. was only going to be a track hack, but have found its in better condition that i originally thought. so i have decided to go down the track of looking to getting it re registered. Now i have no idea who the guy was i got it off, i didn't get any form of paper work from him, i don't know if he was the last registered owner, and hes moved and i cant find him , i have tried every avenue i can think off with no luck . i have the chassis code and the original license plate details. on the police web page search under stolen vehicles it comes up as not stolen. and on car jam it has the details of the car, vague details but they are in there. so this is good as i can prove it was registered in nz (yay) . but i am no where closer to proving ownership?? i just called the police station and asked about getting a "of no interest statement" , they told me that they don't do that and i have to "go look at car jam , or something " . ?!! i'm not sure what i have to do next. can someone please give me some advice on what my best plan of attack is , thanks

    tach and electronic dissy advice

    hay all, so having a bit of a brain fart with this. looking for some electronics people to shove me in the right direction please i have upgraded to an electronic dissy in my mini, its bloody awesome, no more points yay. but the down side is my tachometer now doesn't work. well it moves ever so slightly but no where near reading rev's so in my mind i am thinking i have removed the ballast resistor thus changing the was 9 volts to the coil to the now full supply voltage of 14.2v . so i was thinking if i put a resistor going to ground in between the gauge and the negative terminal of the coil where the tachometer gets its signal from . that i could successfully burn up a few volts making the signal to the tachometer back into the correct scale of 9 volts ? now in my mind if i put it is series it would draw more current through the gauge and that would cook it, so if i just splice it in before the gauge and i used the correct resistor i could burn up some of them extra pixies making my signal back down to 9volts ?? so all this is just an idea, i dont know if i am on the right track with this. if i am wrong and there is no easy fix i will change my plan of attack , ill go and destroy and new aftermarket rev counter and make a mini/aftermarket mash up of sorts. i would in however like to try and get my head around this electric pixie stuff cause i do find it rather fascinating . and i do quite like these little battles thanks in advance . chur

    ta63 CARINA WITH A TWIST

    on a roll this weekend, moved the mini to my new house, welded up the an fittings on my power steering hard lines , welded up the sump. made some trap doors . I made some out of hinges and welded them off , but I couldn't stop the heat from twisting them up. I tried 2 different sets, all moved so much the hinge would bind up. so I resorted to using nuts and bolts, I don't think they will cause any issue like this, I may drill and lock wire them, but for now this will do. . . . now just to wait for the sealant to dry so I can water test it. make sure it has no leaks !!!!! and now I'm caught up with what I was doing like a year ago its time to write a new list of things to get done.

    ta63 CARINA WITH A TWIST

    So its been a year again. and well shit I ain't achieved much at all . not really sure where to start. 2016 was a absolutely miserable year for me , I've had allot of ups and downs, and well all I can say is ; I am fucking glad to see the ass end of 2016 !! continuing with my typical fashion I haven't finished anything that I was doing ; well nothing completely, but I have done heaps of random shit in no apparent order . . . And so its now 2017 and I have to find a new place to live, I'm now a single man, and I have got to get this beast moving under its own power!! sump stuff , was good fun to weld up. tig welding is the bees tits ! AND HERE IF YOU LOOK HARD ENOUGH YOU CAN SEE MY EPIC FUCK UP !!!!!!!! but its ok cause I made the flange area to small , I was going to mill the weld off where the head of the screw would sit, but seeing as I completely made an entire fuck up of the whole thing it doesn't matter any more . so here I am starting again, I learnt allot about welding stainless on the other sump, so this time I am bolting it down to a massive bit of steel. should help to stop it from warping so much , and I gave the weld more clearance to the screws . with the sump on its way again I looked into the high pressure power steering hoses. This was always going to be a battle, and it didn't prove me wrong at all, I started out with 3 meters of 10mm of 8mm id heavy wall pipe ,I broke 2 hand benders, stuffed up 1 fairing tool ; and with allot of mucking around to get them to this stage, I scrapped allot of pipe and spent allot of time to create these, and once again I haven't finished anything, all that is needed now is to weld on the an fittings, make a clamp block to clamp them to the cross member, and buy the braided ptfe high pressure hose and that is the last of the plumbing done! all of this just because there is no room to get braided hose with an fittings to clear the exhaust/rack/clutch hose/cross member/sump. its all very tight , but this was the best solution something that has taken me a long time to figure out, trial and error . but I'm stoked that its going to work and I can keep power steering. never really liked manual racks to be honest. all that other shit aside, this is the cream of my year, and whilst it doesn't look like much at this stage this has been a huge driving force for me. and I cant wait to get some more operations done on these !!!! and this is my model that I drew up from pictures of the internet hahah, I like work equips 01 , and I really like star sharks , then I came across these, I cant remember what they are called but I nabbed a few pictures and went to work modeling them up. and now finally I'm making chips , just got to dig the rest of the wheel out of all that stock : ) and that's me all caught up. merry fuckers new years !
  13. as always, thank you for your advice. We all here appreciate that your always helping this community out . i wil be getting stuck into some more plumbing joyfulness today : )
  14. I have just about finished my project’s fabrication work and I am currently doing all the plumbing and routing of hoses, making the brackets and fixtures, so that I don't have to drill into new paint for my p clamps and mounts. This is how I have come about this ask this question. I plan to mount my high pressure power steering hose to my chassis rail.i have a 82 carina, so monocoque chassis system. I would like to use p clamps and I intend on mounting the hose the entire length of the driver’s side chassis rail. I plan on drilling some 2.5mm holes and using sheet metal screws and p clamps about every 200mm. so my question is ; is this acceptable to drill into the chassis rail for said screws ? And is the distance apart sound about right, good for certification? , I am not sure if that is enough space or if drilling is acceptable. Thanks for your help : )

    ta63 CARINA WITH A TWIST

    so , here we are again , a new year, and time to get back into the swing of thing, I have been getting side tracked allot . need to get focused . i went hard out on the mini project, and its so close to being finished, but then i got a bike. . . . 12000 rpm sounds so freeking sweet !!! so any who, this is what i have been up to on the carina front sump , its now real , just need to get the walls folded up so I can weld the sucker up. then make some kind of baffling I guess. . . this is the 3rd one of these I have concocted (water bridge) and yeah its not super great, shit as welding, the flat bit to miss the belt didn't go according to plan. it has been a pain in the ass trying to figure out a nice and clean way to plumb the front water bridge, the entire design from factory is very out of the norm. so this has and still is so far my biggest challenge. I may even do this again and try find some oval pipe and pie cut it . my ocd isn't happy with the out come thus far . . did some more plumbing, got all the vac lines done, booster done, here is a pasanger side picture of engine bay . and started doing some cad . . but not with a computer, haha, this intake pipe is a monster, its cause I chose to keep the m112 throttle body . and I couldn't find a 4.5 inch 45 degree bend and a reducer all in one. so I just thought fuck it, just stay at that size , I have the room for it, and hopefully it will make a sweet roar and awesome dort type sounds . . this is it in panel steel. I ran out of card board for the day. so tomorrow ill get stuck into it some more. got some other shit done , finally got some material for my wheels, and I made a sold works design of the wheels I want but cant find. the elusive Riverge . kind of like work equips but with a bit more style . so once I have a bit more things completed I can start milling them . I figure ill get the sump done first other wise I cant stay focused enough to do to big chunks of the project at once . I always end up getting of task and starting some other half pie idea but yeah I still have completed a few little jobs like making the heater control panel work properly, made a clutch hose up. sold some shit to buy a bike, got a license to drive it, then I got some beer, and I got a new bbq. . . . shit getting side tracked again . mmmmm bacon .
