I may still rock them, i found them behind my brothers shed, he told me to get them off his property or he would chase me with loaded shotgun.

They are CHOICE!

You need to find a prefacelift coupe so you can score the tacho from it.
They don't call me the man with the rubber arm for nothing you know.............

If you keep the roofrack, you need some of those crusty old cardboard suitcases to sit in it.

Thanks to Blair in Timaru, I now have spare carpets, interior trims, seatbelts, visors, etc, yada yada.
Put some bits in yesterday, and hid the wiring and it looks much better already!
Also got wheel studs so WOF time is nigh

F**King studs!!

Took ages to get the damn things off and re-studded.
Whos idea is it to place a cast steering part infront of the bottom caliper bolt? Thats a poor idea at best my friend.

Anyway, its re-ready for WOF, but i need to paint a bit in the roof where i poked the bubbles and holes resulted.

Also, bought an A15 engine. Awaiting pickup and/or delivery.

I just want to slamm it outward and ditch those 12's!

Pics when i can get a WOF, therefore it will be low and photogenic.

Failed WOF on:
Corrosion on rad support and inner wheel arch (easy)
Seatbelt stalks (had spares,done)
Pulls to right under braking (unsure)
Parklight bulb and brake bulb (done)
Something else perhaps.

Overall buggerall

Also put my JVC MP3 headunit and some Pioneer 6x9s in, along with the Pioneer 6's that were in the doors already, although they are probably routed, they distort a bunch.
