  1. Holy Mother of God you were right. clearly magic runs in the family. Impressive x2.
  2. Thats the coolest way to make all the stuff in your shed disappear. Like magic. Impressive.
  3. Phew what an ordeal. I couldn't bare it if anything happened to that sweet ride. Glad you are ok too.😆
  4. Thanks for that Banjo I will have a look at my next opportunity just to satisfy my curiosity.
  5. I was looking on the Princess' tyre for the date stamp. From what you have said Banjo it is a code. It was only on for 18 hours until I got a chance to get the flat tyre replaced. She wasn't happy about the look of the spare so she parked in a corner when she was at work so no one could see it. She is all about the aesthetics. I was just interested to see if it was the original as the car was a 2 owner before we got it and the first owners were an older couple so it was a lower mileage when the second owner bought it. He had grand plans of a transplant but only got as far as pulling the engine and tranny out and she sat for 2 years before the Princess got a hold of her, and the rest is history. That tyre from BMW will probably cost you as much as you paid for the car.
  6. So the Princess had a flat battery today for no apparent reason but couldn't be any flatter if it tried. So jump started her and moved her to a position to get her on the battery charger only to find there is a big arse nail hanging out of a partially flat rear tyre. So out with the jack and wheel brace and off came the wheel. Got the spare out and it looks brand new still got the little manufacturer rubber nipple things on it. So my question is what tyre did the 1980 ke55 come out of the factory wearing. The tyre is an Enduro Grand 2000.
  7. don't go teasing people by saying stuff like that then go taking it back in the next sentence. That is just cruel..
  8. don't know what your budget is but there is a guy on Brissy gumtree selling a rebuilt 4k for $800
  9. Have you got her programming your ECU already?
  10. Is that how she arrived or how she left?
  11. That is some great economy. Do you think there is any more you can get from her? Thanks for converting it to litres/100.
  12. I was reading those fuel consumption values and thought...meehh...not so good until I realised it was klm per litre. Its a bit early in the day. So I converted it. Freakin awesome for something that has got a stack of poke. Impressive and so pretty.
  13. Firstly what car and what engine do you have? Sounds like the idle jet in the carby is blocked. You can give it a squirt with some carby cleaner but more often than not it will need to be pulled apart and cleaned thoroughly and if you are lucky the gaskets can be reused.
  14. Not a barn find if you have known about her for years but clearly stored some where out of the elements. She is in good condition that interior looks great. Happy daze.
  15. I have installed AC in my daughters ke55 and the evaporator box is a very specific shape and size. It is the same contour as the firewall and there are fixing points that line up with tapped holes under the dash and firewall. If the ke 70 one isn't identical there is going to have to be a bunch of mods to make it fit.
  16. That's what makes me happy excellent news like this.
  17. She will pass with flying colours just on looks alone. Too pretty.
  18. You will barely notice it when it is painted. Very subtle yet functional as you will have air slip streaming into that slot at the rear of it. Less is more as they say.
  19. Condolences to you. It is such an awful feeling when you realise your pride and joy is in the hands of some low lifer. My Datsun Fairlady convertible got stolen and trashed. I fixed her up but she was never the same. I'm with Altezza lets round em up and string em up. A bit of vigilantism is what the world needs. Eeeeeeha.
  20. Prayers and blessings headed your way for a speedy recovery.
  21. An act of destruction, is in itself creative.
  22. Jeeez those vandals started young. A quick escape on the Big Wheel when the cops come.
  23. I can vouch for the Accuspark unit. I put one in my daughters Bosch dissy for her 4k as it kept chewing points. Took $78 dollars 20 minutes to install and I havent looked at it for 12 months.
  24. FANGING. I haven't heard that word in forever. It flew me back to my misspent youth and the Springwood Hungry Jacks drags on a Friday night. Aaaah good times.
