  1. It was a hypothetical question lol. More around was there any rules that says that there must not be holes, like there are specific rules around the size of rust
  2. Can you fail wof if you've just cut out the rust, so no more rust, it's just a nice cleanly cut hole
  3. Sorry, yes sidetracked. Found link for someone posting aliexpress carbon https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32785723466.html?shortkey=ymqQvqei&addresstype=600 Anyone else got links for the other products you need? I'd buy locally, however I just want to have a bit of a play at some point with minor investment Need wax, pvc mould release, resin and cloth like in above link. Have found some examples below locally and aliexpress, any advice? Roller kit (Locally seems to be quite expensive) - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33030075213.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.2e667dfet84S09&algo_pvid=a1a6fc64-1021-466b-ab21-bd5a817d7f84&algo_expid=a1a6fc64-1021-466b-ab21-bd5a817d7f84-0&btsid=9ba89dce-fc3a-4287-a2d3-3f842992ca12&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0%2Csearchweb201602_8%2Csearchweb201603_53 Resin - https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/parts-accessories/paints-glues-resins/listing-2234612263.htm?rsqid=4c6e53a236e548c0b5a47f89a666875b-001 Mould release wax - https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/paint/listing-2236031923.htm PVA release - https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/parts-accessories/paints-glues-resins/listing-2236138894.htm?rsqid=0c17b6ce555b4b90b126bbd4163d8f4a-001
  4. Interesting, however internet tells me it's still not as bad as we think. "Every gallon of gasoline burned creates about 8,887 grams of CO2" So that means a full tank of gas (Say 10 gallons or ~38 litres) produces around 89k grams of C02. More internetting says car aircon units use about 350+ grams of r134. So i mean it's not ultra bad for the environment, worth a few tanks. Then again Diesel is even worse. And how much heavy ship fuel does a cargo ship use, or a coal power plant...
  5. I do genuinely wonder how bad it is compared with how much fuel people waste. I mean carbon monoxide is pretty bad too but it's suddenly ok because everyone is doing it.
  6. This is how people start fires at govt agencies
  7. Progress slowing down, fell into employment however got a couple things done, and ordered, then delivered. Firstly a video of it back in it's hay day for you who don't have a tinfoil hat and use FB. Did: 1) Got the sub-frames out and all the hubs etc. Only have fuel tank and dash to remove now. 2) Bought and received a new engine and body loom. Got an EG9 Civic loom. Few reasons. Currently it's all been done with a OBD0 DA6 Integra loom , new EG9 loom is OBD1 which converts great for a tuneable ecu. The builder of the car originally hacked out literally every wire that wasn't needed and bundled loose wires with cable ties so not really sure what I do and don't have anymore. Finally everything was stripped from the dash so I don't have fans, radio, anything that wasn't 100% needed to run an engine was removed. I'd like to change that a little. 3) Bought a full car bush kit from Energy suspension through Adam @ Speedscience Need: (Not a huge amount is ever recorded on the interwebs about how to modify these era of cars to get any sort of handling performance out of them, so this is all my own RnD) 1) Need to head to PaP to investigate if the Honda Oddysey caliper bracket (You can google it yourself) will space the caliper enough so I can run some spare 96 spec ITR front calipers on EG9 disks. Choice upgrade as I have like 230mm disks currently from an AV Integra, so a 262mm and ITR caliper will make a massive difference. 2) Next on the investigation thing is a retrofitted rear sway bar as it doesn't have one, and I think it would really be beneficial to have one. 3) Shortened shocks for the front so I can lower it just a smidgen more (torsion bar front) and still get good travel (Y) Possibly for the rear as well, but I feel the fronts are going to be more complicated. Idea I'm tossing up at the moment is potentially figuring out if shocks form another car will work. So when I have free time I'll just be continuing on grinding back body rust, and sandblast or vapour blast the sub-frames etc in preparation for POR15 and newly acquired bushes, then they can be stored away in my spare car storage system ready to be reinstalled. Thanks for reading.
  8. Have a look at wof rules but not clear. Rear quarter windows, can you replace them with composite? I seem to recall aaaages ago a friend registered their car as a van or something then suddenly it opened up options for putting blackout vinyl on the rear side and rear window as they pleased. Figured if that were true, then maybe could make a fibreglass plug for them instead.
  9. But just A frame it and risk it, that's what I'd do (y)
  10. Or do a quick heli on sand. You'll see how many rippems were given
  11. Does anyone know if you can replace rear quarter windows with a composite material instead? i.e took out glass, can I form Carbon fibre in the same shape and slot it in there?
  12. This weekend was productive thanks to a few friends helping (Was on dad duty as well). While a mate was collecting the engine crane, another friend put the wheels on the car and rolled it outside. Some genius thought it'd be a good idea to do a skid (me) so I started her up, sat on the rusty floor and effortlessly ripped a single peeler. Success. All went pretty smooth form here with removing engine, a few shitty wiring examples from the original builder (Wires crimped instead of plugged) but nothing we can't deal with. With minor swearing, the engine was out and it became apparent that the top radiator stay needs to probably be removable. There are scratches up the firewall on the drivers side where the rear engine bracket has about 3mm clearence when trying to remove the sucker. Engine was out finally and the car could go back in ready for me to remove subframes and go on a hunt for some more rust. After all that, no more photos was taken, it all went back inside in a hurry. Spent an hour with it last night getting it to a good position to lift it on axle stands (See: Final resting ground). Plan is to take all subframes and suspension off, I have requested/ordered an energy hyperflex kit from Adam @ Speedscience. will then clean up arms stuff then Por15, install new bush and reinstall to car. Today also bought an engine and body loom from an SIR EG Civic. This will be sacrificed to convert the car to obd1 and also to ensure nothing is missed/fucked from the current butchered Da6 wiring job. It allows me to have free wiring for things like dash fans etc which the car doesn't have... And now for pictures. Rest now sweet Prince. Location of the engine until I can get new bits for it. Should probably do cambelt etc right?  During the process, the was left in the trolley jack... Hmm We only lifted the tow hooks. Hmmm, not this side... (Can also see the traction bar & mounts, needs to be cleaned up or redone) Oh, don't even need to get on my hands and knees to see this lol. That bit to the left bottom is bottom rad stay BTW. You shouldn't be able to see light through that other hole...
  13. I'm still waiting to show off my gay projects and compare them to your gay project. Reminds of one of those classic American garage project tours. Could easily do one in Wellington
  14. The n360 chassis is a real worry. If you chop the roof off and sit in the car, the floor bends. It makes a new definition of unsafe beyond everything I've seen before
