    I thought 6 and 12 o'clock movement was wheel bearings.

    On my rx2 it was a different gearbox (s1 rx7) that fucked it up. You can get different speedo drive gears for the s1 box (they are different colours). Bumpstart on ausrotary has a tech thread on it.

    What's your experience been with non-rubber bushings, like the one's you've fitted to your lower wishbones etc.? My experience with that type of bushing is they don't last. I had some nolathanes dry rot and fall to bits in my xr8. I'm pretty sure all the oem rubber bushings are still available.

    Oddball bolt suppliers in New Zealand?

    Atom Fasteners have come through for me in the past.

    Sorry to say it looks smokey.
  7. You don't have to use j109s.. green bros used to sell a direct replacement igniter (don't know if they still do) that fits and does the same job but brand new. I used them they were fine.
  8. Nice car. They say it's best to buy the best example you can afford; I doubt you'll ever regret 'paying too much' : )

    PAINT THREAD

    The Tergo brand from Mitre 10 is good.. just paint it on and work it until the rust is gone. I use a stiff paint brush. Don't let it dry as it forms a white powder that can't be removed without sanding. I use it at about 20-25% with water like that. If you're soaking a part in a bucket say, you can dilute much more. I would do your roof in sections at a time.

    Dent in rotors?

    I'd run those.
