Just an idea, instead of wasting hours looking at the net about peoples projects, how about actually get involved.
Simple idea. Someone needs something done, clutch/Engine/tyre change :hehe: , they post & anyone who is doing nothing turns up. Very simple & a good way to meet up, have a laugh & get shit done.
Just pissed ive no project on the way although the car needs a wash.
A few beers here/there might go a long way.. yum,yum

23rd April 2009, 11:19 PM
dam you for livin in brisbane

23rd April 2009, 11:24 PM
im collecting parts old mate... collecting and waiting... you WILL get the call :)

23rd April 2009, 11:25 PM
if i lived in brisy id be down for this!!

23rd April 2009, 11:33 PM
if anyone is keen they can come and wash my car

but unfortunately thats about all id really let "strangers" do to my car.

only a few ppl i actually trust to do up things like caliper bolts.....

but if you want my hand, by all means give me a buzz i guess.

25th April 2009, 11:56 AM
sounds like an idea.
well in the next few weekend i need to do for my sr conversion

-Put flywheel and clutch on (need torque wrench)
-change bellhousings (RB to SR)
-put motor gearbox back in
-Add swaybar mounts to my diff
-do a helicoil (havnt done one before)
-fit hydro handbrake (flare lines)
-paint it with cans (everyone would have fun here!)

Check over the car, make sure everything is tight

if anyone is keen, i can supply beers and what not

but the catch is... im on the Gold Coast.. near movie world

25th April 2009, 09:06 PM
down for the rattle canning:)

27th April 2009, 11:30 PM
Defs keen man.

28th April 2009, 01:43 PM
I'm always down. Although I don't have a rego car at the moment.

People should come over and put my rear cradles in.


29th April 2009, 01:18 AM
well rattle canning the car on monday (public holiday) if anyone is keen
just light sanding so it sticks and then go nuts.
let me know if ur keen

8th May 2009, 06:27 PM
I got to set the timing on my car if any one knows how to do that abd would like to help :)

12th May 2009, 06:57 PM
can anyone do brazing....? either stainless or brass to aluminum?
I need 4 nuts brazed onto my 20v cam cover so I can hold my coilpacks down....

- Also if anyone knows what they are doing I need to fit a new head gasket to the 20v before it goes in the car and set all the timing up correctly?
I can take shit apart its the reinstalling that I'm not so confident with..... aka setting the clearances and I don't have a torque wrench either....
There is beer for whoever can help with this... or a payment, just name your price..... Although this only applies to people who know wtf they are doing..

12th May 2009, 07:50 PM
Well if you find someone to do it, I have a torque wrench and will be doing a trd headgasket soon on mine, so if you wouldn't mind some company while/when it gets done I can bring it round as I would like to see how its done.

13th May 2009, 05:47 PM
Ive got a shitload of parts if you guys need something to finish off a project or start one.

Oh by the way if anyone haz panelbeater skills or knows how to straighten out the front of my car then your hired. i pay in JDM

19th May 2009, 07:11 PM
Any one is welcome to come round when Dave (ajps) and Matt come over again. You don't have to do any thing, they're really good... But you can drink beer with me, maybe help out on the bbq...

19th May 2009, 08:40 PM
Ya man, Ill call round, when the boys in town?

18th June 2009, 02:52 PM

18th June 2009, 04:26 PM
You can buy them from pedders for like five dollars.

Or use the good old hammer and screw driver :)

18th June 2009, 04:43 PM

Group A
24th June 2009, 01:57 PM
I think this is a great idea, maybe that's just because my car is little more than a bare shell and I'm not real good with the spanners. :)

24th June 2009, 02:52 PM
This week end I'm pretty sure.

If your keen drop us a PM and I'll let ya'll know whats goin' on.

Hi mate

Do you have a crane, stands, trolly jacks, a level concrete surface? A vice or press would be handy for changing bushings in the rear. All fluids/oils? lots of rags, a timing light?

What exactly are you swaping to i.e. 4age to 4age? s series to t series disc or drum?

Defiantly doable in a weekend just have to be prepared.

-going from s series rear to t series rear - only parts that im re-using are panhard and 4link (but rebushing them)

stem seals, timing and pulleys etc are back on aswel :)

would be something special if the rig is drivable after this weekend! i miss it lol

edit: oh and yer i have intake/exhaust gaskets etc all ready to go aswel. got a mate bringing over some gasket goop too

29th January 2010, 07:43 PM

I'll have to give your worker bee a miss blair. MIght see you at the meomm tho.

29th January 2010, 09:14 PM

We only got half done, so will post up here when im ready to do the Rear end!

21st March 2010, 01:36 PM
hey there mother lickers,

the car is running a bit shite at the moment and it seems similar to when it was out of time not so long ago. so i have a new timing belt and was wondering if anyone has done this before and would kindly be of some assistance? im also thinking of talking the head off for a new headgasket and a port job.

the car is off the road for the moment so im just trying to decide what i can get done at the same time.

pm or post if you're interested. i have tools and some automotive knowledge but it would be great to have some more experience.

23rd March 2010, 05:06 PM
bumpity, no-one want to help a poor uni student change his timing belt?

26th March 2010, 11:29 AM
Download a manual on the interwebs, you should be able to do it yourself :)

Porting job, you will need to do some reading etc.

Engine specs?
