One car is in! 3 to go..
And this one was lightest (with wheels) but still was a pain.
Good news everyone, my shed now has a floor after a short wait.
Decent price by a local mob, should be able to start moving my (lots of) stuff in this weekend.
Be out of space by next week I’m sure
Shiiiiit, been a long time since I posted.
White RSR550 has been off the road for almost a month for engine swap;
The original F5B has had bad compression for a while now, as well as going through coolant and leaking oil. I also started noticing rubber burning – which I eventually decided was probably timing belt, so it had to be changed.
I’d been prepping the spare F6A from Wally for a while to go in and finally decided to swap the cars over to Mikes and start the swap.
Haven’t updated in a while due to laziness;
Have bought many more tools, sold a few old Lancer parts.. gotten old.
Since mentioned toolbox I have:
Cleco Fastener Kit w/ tool
Rivnut/Nutsert Kit w/ gun
230mm Makita Angle Grinder
550 x 850 x 570 mm (Working area) Blasting Cabinet
Mini (6″ Main Wheel) English Wheel Set w/ 7 Wheels
18″ Sheet Metal Bead Roller
12pc Geared Spanner Set (‘Ratchet Ringies’)
Today I picked up a 14″ Drop Saw, ordered a Engine Leveller bizzo for Engine Crane and a Digital Thermometer
Don’t think I’ve mentioned my mad stereo setup is ‘finished’
Decided to spend on some tools last fortnight with a sale or two around the place.
Grabbed a 7 draw Sidchrome roll cabinet from Gasweld / Adelaide Tools, since they are moving to the new design I got a 7 draw instead of the 5. Measured up the Alto and grabbed it myself – tight fit!
Also got a rivnut kit off ebay for a great price. And a cleco kit also from eBay – just in case I need to do panel work.
If you like quality car building, you must check out Engineered To Slide by Nigel Petrie,
And this week you can get extra updates to the final stage of the Drift Ute build via here
After 6 weeks on a leaky boat, my wheels have been delivered 😀
Seems they are ‘Potenza TR-1 ST-4’
Not sure when I’ll fit them up – or if I’ll use them on RSR550 at all
Will probably get the centres painted, thinking black or gold (For purple car)
Radiators arrived from China, pretty decent – a few details are off; but they’re usable.
Will send off Bennys soon.
Ordered a couple engine gasket kits, and a couple timing service kits.
When they arrive I’ll have 3 engines worth inc timing belt, gaskets, tensioners and water pumps.
Got Steve at Jazmac to compression check RSR550 – poor results as I expected, likely rings.
90 / 75 / 50 PSI :S
Still driving it though.
Tailgate container is on its way, should be unpacked in early May.
Yen is at parity with our dollar again, so I’m itching to get more stuff while I can.
