    I just completed my Coolant Pipe repair. It was a pain in the arse but got there in the end. Took probably 10 hours to sort it.

    I know it’s a 13 year old car but still, this is pretty “out there”! Check out the condition of the old seal that was leaking. 


    The alternator bracket is leaking, I reckon the guy that sold it to me knew about it and purposely didn’t tell me about it. Private sale so caveat emptor I guess. 

    I didn’t realise I’d be signing up for non-stop repairs like this, but this is the last broken thing as of right now. 

    Is that yours on TM, or just very similar history?

    Apparently NZ's solution to reducing prison numbers is for police and government to cover their ears and avoid dealing with crime. 

    In the last 3 weeks, I’ve watched someone run a stop sign in front of a cop car forcing them to emergency brake and another dipshit panic brake on the motorway before driving straight across the cross hatched median/exit ramp split in front of another cop car on the exit ramp, in both cases the response was nothing.

    i assume these are the millennial cops the older cops talk about who don’t like to get out of the car in case there’s a confrontation.

    I spotted someone sniffing around one of my neighbours places and called the cops, they said they would send someone out, but not a priority if they were just walking around. I pointed out he had 10 guns on site and over 2000 rounds of ammo in his gun safe, I had 3 cars and a helicopter within 2 min.

    I had a BA Falcon as a company car when I first came to NZ... Had been in my possession for about 3 days before it had it's first trip back to the dealership.

    Only thing it was good for was seeing how high I could get the reading on the fuel consumption screen.

    Having been to the factories in Aussie where they screwed them together, and the engine plant would rather walk everywhere than spend my own hard earned money on one!

    You remind me more and more of Ron.

    “I drove one in the 90s and it was terrible and they therefore all are”. And forever will be.

    That looks bloody mint dave. I think it suits your blue more than my red. The most noticeable gaps are definitely at the end on the sides. The top front gap I quickly forgot was there. I wonder if self tapping screws can bend the sides in enough to close the gap.

    I think because it curves slightly upwards the approach angle at the front isn't actually bad at all especially considering its length. At standard motorsport height I never scraped the front edge, it was always those 2 points at the bottom I showed you.

    And be careful about the rough inside scratching your motorsport lip.

    it doesn't look like this is installed with the lip does it?



    If you look closely at the side here, I wouldn’t say that’s a great fit either.
