    • There was a 96 le mans red manual outback for sale about two or three years ago in Temora, found it on Gumtree and rang the bloke selling it as I wanted to buy it ended up getting something else, shame really as he looked after it pretty well and wasn't asking much
    • Aww shucks cheers mate. I had a quick trip down memory lane since you asked, almost 2 years ago now, first repair I kinda showed was Wayne's race car but yes the first big job I posted was the Capri. Apparently I take more photos now than I did at the start, or maybe I just post everything I take now.

      2 years is a lot of grinding and hammering no wonder I'm stuffed lol. You guys make me try harder and that's a good thing. One day I might just be at the level I want to be... And it'll be all your fault
    •   well, i feel like an idiot, at the same time absolutely furious.  I found the issue causing the steering wobble in the Escort. After owning the car for 14 months, and chasing this issue since december last year, i finally found it. And its the most simple thing, and it pisses me off that i swore it was not this, and i was wrong after telling so many people it couldnt be. so what was it?  Well obvious, its my fucking wheels.  The 2 of my wheels i had on the front, are both bent, one moreso than the other, i stuck them both on the back, drove the car and immediately made a difference. I jacked the car up and put the back on stands and watched the wheels turn at idle speed in top gear (about 20km/h) and sure enough both buckled, one moreso than the other.  The wheels i now have on the front, one is a tiny little bit out so it still has a tiny tiny amount of wobble, the other front wheel is dead straight.  So, i will enquire about getting my wheels fixed, but if they are too far gone or going to cost too much, they might get thrown in the bin and fit something else.  Now im not saying that everything else i did up front didnt make a difference, because it did. The car drives mint now with the new steering and suspension, its tighter than a nun's, well you know what i mean, but it did also cost me over $1000 chasing this dam issue 😡   Anyway, these are some good photos (finally) i took this morning with the new ride height and front suspension setup.       
    • looks like someone tried to copy @Ants wagon and he switched the front before they got done.. just needs a barra or LS to finish
    • i reckon these repairs are getting more and more impressive.. what was the first thing you posted up here? the Capri? 
    • get chestnut to log into etis and check the build on this engine number JLCMTR16443 probably same as VIN
    • I saw the one in qld that was white and about 2 months ago. A bit over $4k? From memory.


    • Yeah the new gen inverter migs are ace . Mines got a full 15kg roll in it .. I really wanted a unimig so I could use a alloy spool gun , but they didn't have any and I can use full rolls in this one ..

      I gave up on gasless welding about ten years ago .. I'll never look back .. ide rather just use a stick welder ..
