  1. Hey Dave I am located at Buccan which is on the way to Logan Village from Waterford. I have a very nice midnight blue with light highlights through it. It is high end commercial. There is also a multi toned brown as well as red green yellow and blue solid colours. I can send u some pics if u are interested
  2. I just realised....its a 2 door. You must really like that car. Good luck. Show us your progress as you go.
  3. So...you bought a shed...and it comes with a house?
  4. Hey man cave dwellers and shed shut ins have I got a deal for you. I have a recently acquired a quantity of brand new still in the boxes commercial carpet squares. Ideal for the man cave, kids play room or to make your rolla a cozy space in the shed.The squares are 500mm x 500mm so 4 per square metre. I have a number of bright colours red, green, yellow, blue but in various amounts. These tiles wholesale at $8.00 each and I'm looking to get $2.00 each. I was going to use them in my garage when I move into my as yet unconstructed house but space is limited and I don't want them to get damaged while in storage. I can't upload pics from my phone for some reason but if you are interested send me a PM and i can send pics as required. Thanks Big G
  5. It would be better if you posted as your build progresses that way others can see how you go about it. You may approach your build diffently to others that have done it before. Looking forward to see how she turns out.
  6. Nice and neat non attention seeking. Get that transplant organised and she will be a wolf in sheeps clothing. Great job. Happy Rolla ing.
  7. Looks like hillbilly horsepower. It would be cool if it did run you could head down to Bunnings for a turbo kit.
  8. So here is another gadget that popped up in the Aldi catalog a plastic welder. don't know how effective it will be but for the price its probably worth a crack. No pun intended. On sale Saturday 6 july.
  9. You can blow a head gasket between water and exhaust and this pressurises the cooling system and forces the water out. It wont overheat until all the water is gone. Check at the radiator filler point for bubbles of air when the radiator cap is off and the engine is running.
  10. Those seats are covered in the original wool fabric that came out in the KE55 and the door cards and carpet all look to match. My daughter has an 80 KE55 and the interior style is the same but in a pale blue. So unless someone has gone to a big effort and completely swapped the interior it would be a fair assumption it is original to the car. Those shiny chrome strips on the wheel arches are a nice breeding ground for rust so have a close look there for any signs of rust developing or bog. Very neat car. What are your plans with her? Keep us updated.
  11. I am sure there other brands out there it was more the concept of it. All I know is that it saved me having to change the instrument cluster for another 39 year old instrument cluster.
  12. To be honest I only plugged it in as the Princess was about to leave for work. I need to revisit the instructions to check out its functions. It serves its purpose as the speedo is dodge and she is rolling on 15s so the speedo will be inacurate anyway.
  13. I thought I might start this thread so members can post about handy products that they have discovered that might be useful to others. So i would like to kick it off with a little something I bought online. Ever since the Princess has been rollaing the speedo in her KE55 has been dodgy. It starts at 40 and bounces all over the place. I bought a digital heads up display speedo from kogan. I found it late one night cruisin the internet. It was $39 delivered. It just plugs into the cigarette lighter and it works off a satellite gps signal. It sits on the dash and reflects up on the windscreen and it works like a champion. Day or night. I have checked it against my gps and against other speedos and it is pretty accurate. So if u have a dodgy speedo or the wrong rims and tyres this could be tha answer to your speedo woes. Highly recommended. Happy Rollaing
  14. It is the Princess' rolla so there is no enthusiastic throwing into corners on my part and the Princess drives very politely. I will keep an eye on the wear and rotate as necessary as you suggest. The last set of tyres lasted 2 plus years with about 40 thousand Ks to their credit so I can't really complain. Thanks for your help guys as always I end up a bit better informed than I was before I started.
