  1. they are like rockinghorse shit over here in NZ i picked mine up CHEAP for $300NZ and when i got it, it turned out to be a factory cable item , instantly making it even more rare so i was told

  5. progress finally... i have now finally fully stripped the front end, except the steering stuff . there is nothing in the engine bay at all and have it book into the sand blasters on friday to get the bay blasted as i am far far far to bloody lazy to sand that shit. and we have been dead at work of late.............. so i tool all my panel beating bits and bobs to work with me and have fully bear metaled 1 guard , got all the little dings out of it, etch primed and put a tiny skim of bog over the 2 bits thay needed it. tomorros job if we still quiet is to load it up with some 2pack ( not to be confused with 2pac :hmm: ) primer and have it all ready for a block down. should have car back on sat, or monday and i will start on the process of smoothing out the engine bay.
  6. i hope the $800 was new !!!! you can get a tidy chrome bumper over here for $100each with mounts and end caps. and to think i gave my last set away coz i was sick of tripping over them, am dumping a 4age, 2 k40's and a W50 tomorro because of that reason
  7. considdering they were wanting NZD$700 each for the kits we managed to get the price down as far as we could. and that price did include shipping from NZ to AU with shipping insurence covering to the value of $1950 and was sent via fast post. but at the end of the day you get what you pay for.....
