Space to do repairs near Invercargill?

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps,

Travelling around, just done my WOF and failed on a few minor things, nothing I can't sort myself. Failed on surface rust on radiator support panel. Anyone got some space near Invercargill that I can use in exchange for some beers? Maybe some power tools?

Also - does surface rust need to be cut out here? In the UK we just grind it back and paint.

Thanks, that would be awesome! I can work around you on time. I need to fit a new ball joint, rear shock eyelet bushes and deal with the surface rust on the front rad support. 

Ball joint not a problem, a proper jack would be helpful if you've got one. 

Bushes should be easy enough but a vice would make life easier if you have one.

The rust I'm not so sure about. Is it normal to just grind down and paint here? It's just surface rust, I'm kind of surprised he failed on it. If so, 10 minutes on a grinder if you've got one would be great.

Yeah that shouldn't be a problem.  I'll message you when I get home from work tomorrow with the address if you still need it then.

No worries man. 

I would suggest going up through central to make your way towards chch. The east coast is tedious straights of flat land.

^THIS!

 

@Speedy88 Central Otago is lush at the moment. Lots of cherries and peaches and wine and suns and all the good stuffs.

Alright, awesome! I think we're heading up to Mt Sunday anyway for predictable tourist reasons so I'll give the coast a miss. Top tips!
