Can Anyone Lend Me A...

Recommended Posts

Just pulled the radiator support panel and shit back into rough shape on GIR :thumbsup: , and now I need a radiator...

 

The plan is to drive it to the bodyworks to have the rails inspected on the data-liner.

 

I can't tow it coz I have no suitable tow vehicle, and no one that can be involved in flat-towing, so driving is my only option.

 

So, has someone got an old radiator laying about, and maybe a crappy top hose that I can shorten?? If the radiator is reasonable, I can possibly sling you a few buck at some stage... Just not this very intant (I'm one broke MF :cool: )

This is still an issue. I still need a radiator, even if its for a day or two!!!

 

Anyways... I also just managed to secure a pair of KE36 4dr wagons. They are up north (devonport), so I haven't actually seen them, but I'll be picking them up in a few weeks.

 

So in the not-too-distant future there will be a heap of parts becoming available (not sure what parts just yet)... Here's the heads up. :)

OK... So now I'm desperate!!

 

Going up to Devonport next weekend to buy 2 more wagons, but I still don't know if the van is worth repairing!!

 

If its not worth repairing, then there is no point buying the 2 wagons, as its gonna be a logistical nighmare bringing them all the way down to hobart, considering I know no one with a tow vehicle!!

 

If someone has a project Corolla that is not going, all I need is the radiator for 1 DAY... Just to get the van to the bodyworks and back!! Even a shithouse one will do... as long as it will keep the engine cool for about 10mins each way!!

 

I just went to the wreckers and bought the last corolla radiator out of the only corolla they have, paid $50, got it home and its [email protected]$ked!! bottom neck leaks, and thats without the system pressurised!! :)

 

So can someone get me out of a bind!! I'll save radiators coming out of my ears when I get these wagons, but there is no point going thru it all if the van is beyond repair!! I CANNOT afford this shit!!

 

 

HELP!!!!

I went back to the wreckers today, and they fixed all the big leaks... It still has like 3 small ones, but it'll do to get her to the bodyworks and back.

 

Contacted the dude up north this morning about the 2 wagons he was holding for me... Bastard sold them!!

 

I must admit it has been a while since I called him, coz I was trying to arrange the weekend off/tow car/stuff to do engine swap in dad's driveway, but I did ask him to keep them for me, and tyhat it would be a few weeks!! Khunt... Ah well.

 

She goes in tuesday for a chassis alignment inspection...

Took the ol girl to the bodyworks today...

 

ALL IS GOOD, apparently!!

 

Loox like the van will fight another day, and I'll get onto it shortly, and get some bits to rebuild the front.

 

 

Coming to a rollaclub drive day near you soon... :dance:

As NWA said in their track "prelude"

 

"The [email protected]$kin' Saga Continues..."

 

I finally arranged with 1gttelola to come up to his place and grab the front end out of a shell he has. I had organised a rolla wagon (the ONLY vehicle I could find that had enough space/ie big enough payload to put the whole front-cut in), and that fell thru about 30mins before we were due to leave!!

I considered driving my rolla up to get the parts, but the fact is that its now 2 months out of rego, and with my luck, I'd get caught!!

 

I am [email protected]$king pissed off, as I was so close to finally getting underway on the repairs... [email protected]$k :bang:

 

I'm NEVER gonna get the [email protected]$king car fixed!!
