heya. its been a while so i thought id put post up too.

As of the 15 of december the silver bitch is alive an kickin. needs a new clutch as the old one feels like a sponge.
camber tops are also in.

this is the first day out

also bought this, but it wont be put on for about 5-6 months as im slowy collecting parts do this swap.
i am just a sucker (no pun) for thier induction sound.

reckon she'll hold up?? ;P yes atm im too pov to get a proper diff, dam christmas.
and i never thought about it till just now if all that weld would make the centre unbalanced an cause probs. meh

cheers for the comments guys.

ke70briskev- yeah man put a flat nose on yours an we'll have twin rollas, bout time more silver bitches popped up.

frootloop86- dunno what to say really "they're good" havnt had any dramas yet..

also bought a new luxy today. so hilux05 is no more hilux07 is where its at, i got a towbar with this one and its a duel cab too. im thinkin dumped on its nuts with 15x8 an 15x10 challengers or superlights or sum type of deep dishies for a daily and tow vehicle. then definatly in a year or so a snail will find its way into the bay..

peace out.

sweet conversion :D

looks sweet as

look after her

2nd September 2008, 07:05 PM
daymn. been quite a while since i updated anything. probly cause not much has changed.

although she now runs s13 gear up the front. set to the highest setting its still dam low. need base adj badly. (cheers A_F)

exedy heavy duty button clutch. good thing it aint a daily. its a pain in the ass to sit in start/stop traffic and do hill starts.

silver top flywheel. meh goes alright.. (cheers nizlah. good guy to deal with)

t series rear end. (cheers gilly)

and lastly scored some 15x8 -9 challengers and 15x8 0 sports max 02 (cheers niz)

so thats how she sits with sieras in the ass end s13 shit up the front and still all 4 wheels are inside the guards.......well the rears are.......mostly.

enough talk.
