well ive been here long enough, and figured it was time i got the old girl posted up :)

ive had her for nearly 4yrs, and for the last year and a half have been fixing her up...
there is no rust, the paints had a touch up... the rest is as follows

4AC, good for being indestructible and boat anchors...
koni yellows front and rear, adjustable on the rear

OBX seats, bargain at $400 for the pair...

newest aqusition being the konig rewinds 15x7" 0 offset, which fill the guards perfectly...

and my nardi deepcorn...

after 2 days of fucking around i finally got the car to idle properly!!

12-05-07, 07:19 PM

we went for a run up to the central coast today to put more k's on and run it in properly...

xero
02-06-07, 08:52 PM
another quick update... as some of you may know, i had some troubles with running out of electricty (i felt so european!...)

well i swapped over to a better, working alternator filled it with electricity... and off i went, til... SLPASH... it pissed itself everywhere...

anyway, marty and ian came over today to help, coz one of the bolts got fucked up... anyway, i'd completely fucked the bolt up, and rounded the shit out of it...
marty came over to weld another nut to it so we could get it off... id been trying with a screwdriver and hammer, vice grips, een tried a smaller socket and tried bashing that on... but nothing, ian had a go with the vice and got the barstid undone in one go :rolleyes:...

so anyway pulled the pump off cleaned it up and replaced the gasket and used a different better gasket sealer...

anyway so far so good, gave it some herbs and berries and its leaked yet... I said YET, because knowing my luck it will leak in about a weeks time...
