  1. Hey. Yup I've still got it. Will see if I can locate it. It has a bit of a small hole but you could probably fibre glass behind it and tidy it up. Send me a pm and we can sort something out.
  2. Holy bog Batman . Bog so think it casts a shadow Looks like the rear fender had some bad luck at some point in its life and they decided to use all the bog. Appears to run all the way up the side. I'm not really in the mood to take it all back. Will try to get as little bog as possible back in there to get the shape and get some paint back on it. If anyone has some advice for me I'm all ears as I have nil panel experience. I have taken it a bit more back and slapped some rust kill on for peace of mind More bog https://imgur.com/a/0Kbzwr5 On a more positi
  3. Removed the front left guard to have a look under there and get access to the rust on the firewall. Had very little rust in there which I was stoked about. Gave it a clean up and slapped on some stone chip Dropped a ton of parts of at my storage facility Picked up my spare diff head which is a 3.9, could have sworn I had a 4.3 but no. Still better than a 3.4. Also picked up some spare front struts so I can have a play with some homebrew coilovers. Grabbed my spare rear left door as well as mine doesn't have much life left in it, my spare is 99.9% ru
  4. Managed to get a wire wheel in there. doesn't look to bad. There is a lot of surface rust around the area. is there a rust killer that anyone recommends? Thinking ill be able to get a lot of it with a paint brush. What would be my best method to prevent issue in the future? Cavity wax? underseal? just a really good coat of paint? I'm also looking to underseal under the guard. What's the process for this? do I need to prime or anything or just strip it back and underseal? I was also gonna chuck some seam sealer down the joins as well. I think I got a bit luc
  5. Currently it feels a lot better than the standard. Quite zippy from a stand still. Will take it for a real drive tomorrow.
  6. Went with the stage 2 as stage 3 seemed a bit harsh for around town ande Henry agreed the stage 2 sounded like what I wanted. man editing this on a phone is bitch
  7. Really loving these new rims. Car is also about an inch closer to the ground. Got the car all back together the other night and did a run in. Struggled to get good smooth rpm. Searched and searched for a vaccum leak. Timed it more than once. Messed around with the carb. Then I pulled the plugs. Not sure a gap of 0 is recommended (should have checked before assembling ) 3/4 were too close, re gapped to 0.9mm and boom perfect idle again. Took it for a test drive and forgot to tighten the accelerator cable and it cable loose after the first rev up . Really happ
  8. Shiny bits Made up a small filler piece for the dash. Will have a go at painting it black. Found my dashboard blank. So if anyone has the original radio plastic I would be keen. Help undo younger mes mistake of cutting up the dash cause I needed some doof doof.
  9. Does this change the approach? I don't think it's all the way through.
  10. I think he means running cable through a hole in a rod. Then putting that into a drill? Sounds like a compact wire wheel. Kind of I will give it a poke with something or can I leave it and pretend I didn't see it
  11. @Adoom I'm not sure it's rusted through. Would you recommend cutting it out? I was wondering if sand blasting the area would work then painting the shit out of it?
  12. Anyone have any ideas how to attack this rust? It's located on the passenger side under the cowl(?) The cowl/louver appears to be spot welded on. Is it possible to remove this with the windscreen still in?
  13. Dropped the head off at North Shore engine reconditioners today. getting 0.25mm removed, new valve springs installed, freshen up the valves and some new studs as 3 of the 6 were mostly stripped and require some helicoils. In my quest to find some gasket remover to get the stubborn timing cover gasket off I bought some CRC gasket aerosol it said it can remove carbon build up. Carbon be gone super impressed. One application got it almost all completely off. New cam/lifters are in. Sump is going back on with a a fresh seal. Due to get the head back on Friday. With a
  14. Picked up some shiny pieces Also picked up some more 4AGE accessories Twin dellortos 45mm on a bigport manifold, will make swapping into the KP a lot simpler. Was told if I touch the coil it will kill me. So that's nice. Started on replacing the cam. Needed a new sump gasket so out with the old. The timing cover gasket did not survive so will order a new one tomorrow. also got picked up a new crank seal to stem the oil leak. Much oil. Need to find somewhere to skim the head a bit. Gonna go with 0.25mm. anyone have somewhere on the nort
  15. @kyteler Yup that looks about right. Never seen one before. My current exhaust has no joins lol. Thanks for the quick reply.
