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.
