    My workmates have a saying when I've tampered with something... "it's been Gergified!"

  1. Just repaired that exact damage on that exact door and it's a shit to do. You can tap the panel flat but the door gap is never the same (unless it's done right) Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  2. Someone mention fox body goodness? Anybody recognise this tailgate? Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  3. + 1 on the wagon/sedan bumpers. My inner had the little window for the number plate lamp but the skin didn't. I think that's the only difference. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  4. Autos aren't meant to be drained that often, so they don't bother with high-tech things like drain plugs. A lot of shops do a flush, which only plugs into the cooler lines. So it's off with the pan bolts and try not to make a mess as the oil pisses out in every direction. One tip that shops use is remove all but one bolt on each corner and slowly back 3 of them out as you try and lower one corner to get the oil falling into one spot so you can catch it. While the pan's off, do the filter and pan gasket. Use a smear vaseline to hold the new gasket in place as you raise it back up and put the bolts in. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  5. NZ has very relaxed import laws compared to us. I guess there's no market to protect? Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  6. Could you possibly use a tyre black? Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  7. Typical government stance with big business in its pocket. "let's see.... How can we scoop up more stamp duty, prop up the insurance industry (via the need to insure financed cars), look after auto manufacturers, look after the dealerships, put people in more debt (needing to borrow for a newer car).....?" "I know, we'll use the good old "S" word...... SAFETY!" ANCAP might not be for profit, but it's hardly independent. It's partially funded by the government, but also the auto industry (openly given a big pat on the back by the Australian Automobile Association). If there's one thing that manufacturers have in common, is that they want to sell more cars. As long as my arse points to the ground, ANCAP will never be objective in their assessments. Just think of self-interest. If there were no new cars, there would be no ANCAP. By this we can deduce that they have no interest in people driving older cars. Want to make an older car look unsafe? Change the criteria so that newer cars look so much better. Funny how "classic" status suddenly makes a car much safer. Maybe it's because car clubs might have a bit of clout? This whole thing stinks of industry influence masquerading as safety advocacy. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  8. Even Michelins can be Chinese-made these days. It's just unavoidable. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah I've never had a lose that I couldn't catch so I don't drive like a dickhead. It's more if you have oil or diesel down, a hard tyre will slip earlier. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  10. We have a similar place here in Sydney town at Milperra. Haven't bought new tyres for 20 years now. Cheap late model rims too. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  11. I had Nankangs on my EA, 225/60s and gripped awesome. Then they went hard and let's just say that roundabouts were interesting in the wet. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  12. Well you might like British cars, at least it's not FIATs.... "Fix It Again, Tony" Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  13. But get thrown out with the car as you write it off into a power pole Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  14. Dad had Bob Jane all-rounders. Really not a bad tyre for the money. Lasted ages too. I find Korean tyres very grippy when new but go off after 18 months and get rock-hard. Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
  15. So you're British and unreliable too? [emoji12] Sent from my CPH1607 using Tapatalk
