  1. Great photos. Cars look really good side by side with their individual stylings.
  2. Yep, those Jovites do look good. I have a set on the ke25 that look very similarly sized. Not that it matters, thing hasn't been driven sinse I brought it home years ago. Think from memory I saw MS's KE55 at a jap show couple years back up here in Brisbane. Very nice car.
  3. Those wheels look much better I reckon. Thought about widening the rear rims? I always like the way rims/tyres filled flares on the rear end of LX hatchbacks but obviously not 10's-12's on a KE55😆
  4. I thoroughly enjoyed following the KE30 build from the beginning so I'm glad your back with this one.
  5. Looking good and love the choice of going with Convo's.
  6. FMD, Most important thing is your OK and secondly the car is too.
  7. I'm surprised it made it. We wouldnt get down the road without the police ripping us a new a hole. The fines would be 5x the value of the car. Looking forward to seeing you tackle the build. A big project, credit to you for saving it. Should be impressive when done.
  8. If no-one local buys it and your willing to ship it, Ill buy it if freight is reasonable to Brisbane.
  9. Shame about the bonnet with all the effort you put into it. At least the gear knob and cage padding isnt too much of a pain.
  10. so what happened, did they give you a hard time? Never mind, didnt realise I had 2 emails. Bummer. Just the bonnet?
  11. Finally got around to installing the refurbished dash that I got back a few weeks ago. From when I did the conversion I had the ECU check engine light dangling off a cable hanging under the dash. Ive been wanting to have the check engine light in the dash under the park brake light but looking stock. I bought some 3mm translucent amber perspex. Did all the cutting on my triton table saw so that the lens would be recessed. I sanded the top of the perspex with 600 grit to take the shine off and no longer see thru. Filed the notches out for mounting and used a soldering iron to melt the pre existing tabs in the dash facia to hold in the perspex in. Reworked the PCB on the cluster to suit so I could use the stock dash bulb and location. It doesn't look 100% stock but it will do. I cleaned all dash components with a toothbrush and dish washing liquid. Even pulled the fins out of the vents. 40+ years of dirt and grime. time consuming but worth it. I also replaced the $20 dollar Nardi copy with a genuine one the family bought me for last xmas.
  12. cheers. I bought a passenger door off you a while back and you gave me a few door cards aswell which I ended up giving to Grant in NZ. Took me for a drive, love your car. Ive been following your build thread for a couple of years and always look forward to updates.
  13. Yeah was looking to have a chat but no-one was by the cars (yours and MS's red ke55) when I stopped by. I didnt take my car this time around. I have a KE30 2 door.
