    Interior Update! With my brake booster now in the old glovebox location, i still wanted it to look as factory as possible, after a lot of cutting and grinding, i achieved just that. EB1D8036-FBD2-4608-B610-A7B005B38694.mov Rear cargo blind sourced from Mike Witheford With wanting to keep the front seats factory looking, and not wanting to change the back seats as well, i decided to keep things simple. I acquired a set of blue cloth sports seats a couple of years ago and decided to get them recovered in the factory black and grey fabric, sourced from Le Mans in wellington. The re trim was carried out by Reumers Trim and Upholstery here in New Plymouth . Reumers also recovered my headlining and sunroof panel in Black fabric and fixed up the tired and well used cargo blind. Removing the old heading and glue was not fun. Cutting and gluing the new headlining around the sunroof myself. I wanted to keep the grey interior carpet to match the boot lining, so just gave the old one a bloody good clean. The seatbelts also needed a good clean, this was the result of an overnight soak in warm water and sugar soap... I kept my black door cards from my old car, and was going to convert my rear manual windows to electric in the touring, but that hasn't happened yet. so a pair of rear door cards were sourced, unfortunately not in black. A quick DIY solved that. The plastic door body seals were also replaced with some adhesive carpet protector from Mitre10, Perfect! Starting to take shape! Finished off with my white gear knob from my old car (Now with 6 speed) and my Golf GTI plaid shift boot from StitchBoots in the USA. The interior is pretty much complete now, I'm running my old tweeter pods for looks, and my old map light mirror i kept from my previous car also. Just waiting on a radio blanking panel for the dash and also need to install my voltmeter. The rear battery setup in the boot has just finished being revised, the big old battery has been replaced by a much smaller one that allows the rear opening panels in the side wheel wells to now shut correctly.
  3. I got mine from eBay in the states after going through half a dozen or so auctions to pick out the best one, then got it delivered to the kiwi shipping warehouse then they shipped it over for me with another members gearbox as well, probably the easiest, fastest and cheapest way to do it. Although the US dollar isn't the best right now.
  4. Hey guys does anyone have a tool like this or similar? Looking to borrow for one windscreen install rather than buy. Cheers
  5. Been following on Instagram. Love Claudia! Keen to see more progress.
  6. Direct bolt on 260mm fronts and 258mm rears D1 Racing and Roadhouse branded Fronts have been bolted to car without calipers and never driven on, Rears are brand new still in plastic and box. $425 Shipping to be negotiated, online quote came back at approx $60 from New Plymouth to Auckland
  7. Nice car, but maybe i expected more. Its a bit rough these days, all that work and they can't even paint the inside of the fuel flap!

    Cheers Jon! The Zinnoberrot shell was a good base for the final Calypsorot vision, and a thought that did go through my head when purchasing the car.

    Well 2019 is looking promising so far! Late 2018 I dropped the car off to Steven Sole Customs here in New Plymouth for a full panel and paint. IMG_5774.MOV With the car back home now I'm still slowly piecing it all back together. joined_video_ce80f80f32c2432181c062f99dc66cbf.mp4 Next on the list is the interior, Stay Tuned.
  12. Although we never crossed paths in person Attas contributions to the forum and my previous car was always very positive and humbling. RIP Atta [ CRZARB ]
