    car wiring is annoying

    I havent done anything to my car today. Still too far away.

    This weekend i'm planning to do some shopping for it though. I need:

    New head/s
    Full Gasket set
    Gearbox rebuild kit, synchros and bearings (damn drift kids, they've made the price for hilux gearbox parts go up :mad: )
    and a set of Rear brakes. Either standard drums or i might finally go for discs on the rear (using a mix of landcruiser discs and subaru calipers)

    all up i'm looking at about $2000

    Then there's the Suzuki tractor project to unpack from the storage crates as well. I've jacked up the use of a MIG so i want to go hard out and get the engine mounts and rear suspension made up. Then it can go off to the engineer's for the coil spring front suspension, the reason why i pulled it to bits in the first place a year ago Would be nice to see it looking like a vehicle again.

    And theres a corolla in one of the sheds somewhere. guess i have to do the head on it. again. or just try and flick it on TM.

    Oh well, at least i've got one good vehicle that doesn't need fixing


    I've had too much time to think about this over the last couple of months. Sucks being away from the shed for too long.

    nah bro, it's easy az. just tie a chain thru the rear towing eyes and onto another car/shed/powerpole. Then chuck some oil on the wheels and go hard.

    We tried it with my mate's GT4, it dragged my Safari round a bit, but it was funny as hell watching him see-sawing back and forth across the carpark

    Hmm, reminds me I must check my engine. I check all the basics each week, its my only car atm and I can't afford for it to go kaput because I was too lazy to check the oil.

    Yeah, attempting to replace the clutch. A lot of shagging around and a few phone calls to MrOizo later...managed to get all the bolts undone but it's still attached by a clutch fork pin I suspect...

    I'm lucky my car tells me when it's lost 500mL of oil.
