  1. I bought my car out of country, and factored in a worst case with my offer (which pretty much happened)
  2. All welded The guy welding it took an interest in it and only charged about US$150 to do it. Apparently it was a bugger of a job He found a second crack that he fixed as well
  3. There was a museum that went bust here recently and the rumour was that it was actually just a dealer selling collector cars on consignment and calling it a museum to lower their tax obligations
  4. I'm pretty sure I've seen it done before - even at 5'8(ish) the space in the cabin is pretty bad (at least compared to my cad)
  5. Good pick up, I'm pretty sure they're shielded but I'll double check the receipt In terms of blocking the crossover, is that a byproduct of modern fuel in general or ethanol? In Victoria we're not mandated to use ethanol at all so we have easy access to 'clean' fuel at the various octane ratings? Can you just use a flat piece of metal to block it or does the intake poke ever so slightly into the manifold? I also need to fish out half a tree that seems to have a accumulated in the valley, clean out any petrol/fuel mix and then re-oil the valves
  6. There’s a lot of engineering challenges there and I would certainly recommend reading local legislation about what you would be able to register My daily driver is a bmw 125i which has a fantastic turbo engine in it but it’s not going to give you that wrx sound or anything like that
  7. Ours you just pay once and it's yours for life. We can also get 'heritage' style plates, which are proper enameled plates made by hand to the spec from the 1930's https://vplates.com.au/browse-styles/heritage
  8. Hmm, could get either Or one one for the 1912 cads out there
  9. https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=!AEw1AB-OLjaGEv8&cid=CC7DFA2EC33D6916&id=CC7DFA2EC33D6916!157774&parId=root&o=OneUp
  10. Ding ding, we have a winner - the balloon technique showed we had a timing problem. I’m not sure if it’s something we did when we had the motor apart or if it was something previously wrong.... But, note the tense above... had...
  11. We can’t get personalized plates on collectors car registration (US$60 for 45 days including injury insurance) One of the last things I worked on was on our states personalised plates website, https://vplates.com.au/browse-styles whats good is that we have different size plates to fit euro, Japanese or us cars
  12. Infraview works well for batch jobs e.g. here's the settings screen - you can set it to negative and convert them all to batch and then stitch them together
  13. Maybe post a sample here so see if anyone has any great ideas? One of my guys at work normally writes code to do repetitive stuff like this
  14. Hadn't heard of that method before, have added balloons to the shopping list to try it out (I did get a strange look when I said I needed some balloons from the the grocery store)
