    KE20 front strut inserts.

    If you are talking about GJM85’s modified struts, his actual for sale thread has them marked as sold a few years back

    How To Build A Rally Car

    Somehow I have never read this thread. Not sure how that came about. But spending the weekend in a Airbnb beach house in Blairgowrie with Mrs Parrot and three 14 yr old girls so I’m sure I’ll find some time to get educated about farms and stuff.

    Kicking it, old school

    Currently in the market for a new house. The cars have to fit! Either that or rent an offsite workshop! would be gut wrenching to have to sell off a car you literally know every nut and bolt of

    What a crock. I suppose that’s the good thing about paypal, seem to have some recourse through them, but a lot of hassle

    Kicking it, old school

    I threw an AE86 front cut out out once. It was many many years ago though. Now thinking seriously about selling my AE86 because of a lack of room. What a choice to make. The KE15SL or the TE27 or the AE86. But doubt I’ll be able to bring myself to do it

    What Makes You Happy Thread

    I’m involved in bone marrow transplantation and unfortunately see stories like this everyday. Things have changed substantially since I started in 1991, but some people still have a very hard time of it

    What Makes You Happy Thread

    Hmmm that sounds familiar. I became heartily sick of AE86DC also. Rollaclub was and remains a breath of fresh air. And that came down to good moderators

    Fix headlight gaskets??

    Also occurs to me, may be specifically designed to only fit properly in one direction

    Fix headlight gaskets??

    Oh well you might need to use some sort of adhesive to encourage it to stay on. I would use a rubber cement, but no need to overdo it

    Let us know how you get on

    Fix headlight gaskets??

    It doesn’t look like there are any clips. I suspect it just sits there. I reckon you need to take the light out so you can fit the sealing ring over the ridge on the lamp body itself properly. It looks like you only need to remove one retaining screw for the assembly.

    I think I know what you mean but suspect it would be a good idea to post a picture. Helps to know the model also.

Specifically for KE 10, 11, 15 , 17, but I would fully expect they will also suit KE 20 and 25 also. winter will be here before we know it and who wants mud on their precious machine? $60 plus post. Melbourne pickup is fine Postage $15 extra

    That’s fantastic news! Hopefully they have been able to identify the cause to prevent a recurrence?

    How does it determine fuelling? Is there some sort of rudimentary ecu?

    Ask the social worker for information about VPTAS (patient transport assistance scheme). Hopefully you live more than 100kms from the hospital, if so you are eligible. I’ve attached the link, and you can get hard copy forms from the social work dept Provides reimbursement of travel costs and contributes to accom costs. You do have to pay upfront then claim reimbursement but it does help. You may also be able to get a discount parking voucher from social work also. Ask the ward clerk to chase them up for you.

    Not good. Fingers and toes and everything else are well and truly crossed. At least you are in the right place, and she will be treated and cared for amazingly well.

    I reckon they would contribute to your overall downforce

    That’s a great looking car! Hopefully the paint isn’t hiding too much. What’s a MAACO paint job?
