Dat Wheely Good Yen

Since the Yen has been high lately, I’ve been wanting to buy.. anything from JP to take advantage.

I’ve been looking at rims a lot since I was sure I’d save more than buying locally, and obviously the range and goodness is much better.

I bid (via Streeter of course) on some Work Equip, 13x6J +10,

I was outbid on these, which was kinda alright since It went a bit higher then I wanted anyway.

Looked around a bit more and found some 13×5.5J +15 with less days left, lower start bid, and no bids yet.
Put a bid in a start and eventually won with no other bidders šŸ˜€

They should be leaving Streeter sometime next week for their long journey here.
Thinking I might get the centres powder coated before they go on

Things heating up

Still summer, still too hot to do much.

The car started getting hot more often than not, unless I was going over 40kmh it was at theĀ 2ndĀ top line on theĀ gauge.

Swapped thermostat over with a spare, didnt fix.

Eventually checked with Steve and he thought the rad may be blocked – was over 100c at the top of rad just from idling.

Week or so later I went to Mikes and changed the fan switch + radiator to the ones from the Black car.

All is good, in fact it’s probably running too cool now. The thermo comes on in decent time, not sure if it ever turns off though
