    Looking to buy a welder

    I have a multi-function machine from boc. IT has a mig torch, tig torch and a arc torch. I have only used it on mig so far and it works well. Cost me a grand. it will not tig alloy. this unit will not allow adjustment of the wire speed, just the volts. some find this hard to use, but i dont know any better so its not an issue for me. Paid a grand for it directly from BOC. You will also need a helmet, gloves, clamps and magnets flap wheels and stuff. Leave about 3-350 to get started with this, and a 15a plug in teh wall. Check what the shed is wired with. IF you have 2.5tps tile it should then just buy a plug from bunnings and swap it over. i have made gates and modded my sub frame. When i start my body repairs i will put out the tig and learn how to use that also. there are other machines out there but i chose teh BOC unit as boc will keep spares for many years. Most of the units in the price bracket are made in china and i had concerns regarding parts long term. Also look at bunnings for the coregas swap a bottle scheme. Cheaper than BOC. 190 deposit(refundable if you take it back) on the bottle and about 120 per bottle on a swap basis after that.

    Doing a m5x swap is not a massive amount of work. Basically Google will be your friend. They are basically the same as swapping in a motor in a e30. So search e30 swaps. It has has had some playing with in the past. It should have mechanical injection. It may have a m20 out of a later car with motech or it could have been retro fitted to the original 323 motor. Impossible to tell with out a lot of looking and numbers.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Got it out of the shed yesterday. I'm using early e24/e12 front hubs. The bearings are the same as the 323 bearings so direct fit. I had to machine the hub centre down about 1.2 mm. This allowed me to fit commodore discs. Giving me about 41mm more disc. The Holden caliper is also bolt on so major upgrade. The rear is e28 subframe shortened to fit. and e34 arms.

    That silver one looks like a good buy. Looks to.have the full bbs kit. And last owner for 20 years!! If it's been kept inside( it looks like it has) then it should be a good solid example. They done co.e up like that very often!!

    BBS RS 740 STYLE 42 $300

    These are now in my boot. Tyres are all different one is good the others are all stuffed. Yep they need a bit.of work but nothing I can't handle. There will replace the TSW hockienhimes that were stolen from my back yard a few months ago.
  21. Just cover the intake ports with duct tape/100mph tape. If you want to.get real fanatic about it make up some blanking.plated out of perspex and use intake mounting points to bolt down.

    Ticket Scalping

    I got it incorrect It was the foo fighters at the O2 arina in london. People needed to produce ID that matched the name on the ticket or no entry!!

    Ticket Scalping

    At a recent gig Queens of teh stone age disallowed entry to a bunch of ticket holders unless they produced the credit card purchased on. Lots of people who had purchased tickets with friends and family, but could not arrive at the same time could not get in. 100s of unhappy punters. Thats the way its heading. When purchasing Glastonbury tickets you need to provide photo ID also.
