    That is a nice kit! And I usually HATE body kits.


    Today I did some more running around and got the bolts for the clutch plate but was unable to pick up my spigot bearing and spark plugs, will have to be tomorrow.

    At the mo, the flywheel is installed and torqued up and once I get the spigot the rest can go in!

    mine went in for painting today.
    Respray bonnet, front guards, front bumper, drivers door, drivers rear guard blended. Then bonnet, front guards, bumper, whole door and whole rear guard clear coated.

    After this theyr gonna bake it for a day and a night. Then hes going to wetsand and polish new paint, and then run a buffer over the whole car to make it all spotless. To top it off hes going to mix me up some touch up paint and touch up clear coat and put them into pens.

    Should be done by friday afternoon. Quote-$800. And I know the guy and know that if any of his team let some half ass job go out the door, they get their ass kicked. Pics will follow.

    Also, some little cu*t dinged my car with their door in the same place as the dent I just paid $50 to get pulled out. Will get this pulled out AGAIN.

    looked at a few new options for my suzuki project.

    CA18 + auto or 7mge + Hilux 4wd gbox.


    I'm leaning towards the CA18. While the 7m would be kinda trippy in a tiny little truck, and the diffs would handle it, it'd be inside the cabin a long way, whereas alll i really need to do to fit the CA is put a scoop on the bonnet. I might even be able to fit the radiator under the bonnet instead of on the deck.


    anyone wanna buy a 2L-T?

    And used like 33L of fuel to get to Christchurch, to the hospital and back to Hornby to fill it up. (370km)

    my Laser TX3 (1600cc DOHC turbo).

    Probably going to dial it back to 18psi for the 'proper' tune, there's no point in overstressing the already fragile gearbox

    Today I was busy!

    - Made up some adapters for the gearbox mount, got the box in alright.
    - Bolted up the drive shaft
    - Removed gearbox again to install the new thrust bearing that I forgot about...

    ...holy crap, I spent 8 hours doing that , felt like I did a lot.

    But now I just have to...

    - bolt on the slave cylinder
    - add fluids
    - go back and tighten a ****ing bolt on the top of the clutch pedal, god I hate that bolt
    - Put in new locks and ignition (from getting broken into)
    - Put new boot hatch on
    - Put drivers seat back in
    - Cut 2x holes for the rear cusco strut brace to go in
    - Tidy up a little rust
    - Put Intercooler back in

    There is most probably more...
