  1. I tried to keep up with him once. Ended like this....
  2. Oh and the Caldina is such a trooper, I love it. Dirt jumper on the roof (didn't feature in video) and I was able to get 3 kids, 3 race bikes and me inside!
  3. Parrot to put Byron's riding into context, this was immediately after Sunday's club racing (why the other 2 are in their Yess gear)... and after a full day at Blue Derby on Saturday. The dirt jumps are over 30 years old, community build on high school land. The high had now just paid to have that added.
  4. Mentioned my son's channel last week. Thought I'd throw it up here instead of spamming in someone's tech thread. 😝
  5. Where are you? I have a set of ke55 brackets.
  6. North of the state got dumped on a few nights ago. Didn't come quite as low down this way. No snow on the trails but this is my current view of Kunanyi...
  7. Ooh I didn't know you were a mountain biker Stu! Byron and I are off to Derby tomorrow. We normally spend most weekends these days doing dirty jumps somewhere. You've probably never seen his YouTube channel....I don't exactly plug out here.
  8. Haha you're starting to get it. I stated with the polished tappet cover as everyone does.... then the timing cover... thermostat housing.... the 7ke manifold (which must have been about 100 hours all up!).... alternator, dizzy housing, oil cooler plate.... intercooler, cooler piping... my ls1 coil brackets. Then I start making new bits like the thermo fan brackets.... it just never stops! 😉 Just like paint, a really good polished finish is all in the prep. Get it as smooth as possible. The actual polish bit should only be the last 5 minutes of work. Fyi, I prefer cream polish. I actually like to apply and rub it in with my bare hands. Just keep rubbing until your hands are nice and black. Wipe off the excess then rub as fast as you can with an old towel or the like.... or a buffer if you have one. I used the do a bit of casual work years ago at a place called 'The Car Artist' who was really busy doing all kinds of body kits back in the late 00's when fat and furious was popular. Most of my days were spent wet rubbing primed panels. I seriously did end up with bleeding finger tips, and yes... rarely had finger prints.
  9. Haha nice work. The real shine come out with some 2000 wet until your finger tips bleed 🤣
  10. Careful!!.... it's a slippery slope when you start polishing alloy 🙄😂
  11. Oh and fyi, I don't run my 13b bridge port on anything more than 91 because the compression and timing doesn't justify anymore! She's an old school IDA job.
  12. All of this is mine now. Bumpers aren't for sale sorry Blake. I don't want the purple panels, but I really don't feel it would be cost effective to send them to the states. Locking this thread now.
  13. I depends a lot on the car and the market it was designed for also. My ex once bought a Peugeot 405 mi16. She ran it on 95 and used to get around 500km from a tank. Switched to 98 and started getting over 800km to a tank!! Should have known better from the start being a euro, but this was just as 98 was becoming readily available. My Caldina is also very specific about only running 98, being a Japanese import.
  14. Whatever the value is doesn't really matter... other than the fact that's your max advance because no ECU can see into the future 😉
  15. Locking this topic up to avoid any disappointment. Last page had nearly 2 years worth of questions and no reply from OP.
  16. Love this project! It's kinda like Binky... but way faster... and no funk.
  17. I had to resurrect an old tank when I removed my fuel cell for mod plating. I used a 2 step process... 1 I put a good few hand fulls of blue metal in the tank with some petrol and shuck the shit out of it. That removed any loose scale etc. Put a while bottle of CLR (Yes the old tv ad stuff) in the tank and let it sit in different positions over a few days. That left it sparkling inside! Fyi looks like you're putting you're aftermarket level sensor in exactly the same place I did.
  18. Oh, and I just got an SR cas plug off eBay for like $20...
