Takaka 'race' hill. 


that brings back fond memories of my mum’s old 121 bubble car, it was the undefeated king of the hill.

It’s good that you have a nice reliable Japanese shopping cart to daily so you don’t get distracted from your project car.

As some might have seen in my wanted advert I've been looking for a Nissan k11 Micra (march) for a while, mainly to have as a daily for when the Imp eventually goes under the knife to get its new flat six heart

going by the amount of time that the likes of Barry, Kendal and a fella in chch I have used (his name eludes me right now) have spent on various cert jobs I have done, plus the paper work, the training costs to get there and the fact they then have the responsibility on them, I don't actually think the costs are very much at all.

The folk who grumble about the costs are probably the ones who did not follow the rule book or just ignored the certifiers suggestions and had to keep making changes because of stupid decisions on their own behalf.

I'm just still fucking thankful we still have a way we can go about to legally build or modify our own cars because its always on the back of my mind that this will get scrapped by the dogooders one day. I have many of my own project plans I have yet to even draw up and am hoping for a happy future of making things.

 

 

I don't really want to be a dick, you've done a good job of the modifications but in one thread you go on about how great the cert system is and how fortunate we are to be able to do it legally and then in another you do stuff that puts the cert system in jeopardy.

"If people aren't going to follow the rules then we will just ban modifications"

umm :thumbright:

Anyway.  Fitted some sway bars this evening (stock sway bars that swap straight in, which, like all the other parts swapped over, are found on most K11s except the real poverty spec models)

Looking forward to test drive with them. Brakes seem fine after some good use scuffed all the rust off them. No leaks evident from the engine bar a wet sump plug gasket but I plan on giving it another oil change soon- just because its been such a good little (stock standard) engine :-)

Will book it in for a wof now.  Quite keen on swapping over the PFL front end asap, but not so keen on having to paint it all.  We are planning on building another shed soon and I would like to make a section of it into a small spray booth type area. Not big enough for a full car but at least fine for painting panels/bicycle frames.
