  1. Does anyone still stalk these forums anymore? Few changes...
  2. Dude, so much respect for this build. Keen to see how it fairs and what breaks first :P you are a pioneer, well done... And I thought these forums had all but died. You just brought some new needed life into them
  3. What is the make of the SSR's? Ive seen a similar set on a 110 over here in VIC, fell in love when I saw them...would love a set for the 100 I think, getting over the BBS's
  4. Still alive, have moved house not once, not twice, but three times in the past 4 months. So yes, things have been hectic but finally settling down. The Chaser, unfortunately hasn't seen a great deal of change, went on daily duties for a while. First house, driveway problems. Successfully countered with trusty railway sleepers Made up straight through mid section which lasted all of a week after the drone gave me and the other half a mild migrain May still end up back on there depending on how things progress... New bosses car, just a casual C63 Loaded up to head to house number 2 in a new city Found Jeffy at the TCCA meet in Melbourne back in August Finally got a set of diff bushes and promptly put them in, dailying it made me realise how bad they were getting, had to be fixed Gave the diff a bit of a freshen up at the same time Took delivery of the new work bus - insane fuel economy Grabbed some kebabs one night Bought a set of AE112 side repeaters, only to find they wernt big enough to fit over the shocking hole the compliance workshop put in to fit the older SV20 repeaters...sticking with the ebay spec crystal ones for now :( FINALLY got clear corner markers, and did a headlight resto at the same time Before: After: So all in all, pretty happy with how the front end is looking these days. Need to clean up the grill at some point and figure out some nicer numberplates maybe along the line...oh and some black silicone joiners for the FMIC just to tidy things up But for now, focus is getting a new fuel pump sorted, as whatever I have now is progressively getting louder and louder which im not really too happy about having the prospect of getting stranded on the side of the road one night. Oh and re gassing the aircon, discovered it didn't work in the 30deg heat the other day, not alot of fun in peak hour >.< Booked in in a couple of weeks
  5. **** yes Mark X. So menacing in real life
  6. When are you gonna pick up a nice set of wheels for it?
  7. Mine too mate! Havn't gotten round to getting them in yet, shot Nick from North Shore an email today to get prices on OEM as well as the TRD replacements. Will go TRD if its not too much dearer. Not a fan of solid bushes either as its more or less a weekend cruiser/mountain climber and not a track warrior. Will be posting photos when its done and a little write up. But yeah, gave it the first full detail since owning it last weekend before heading down for a couple of car meets, one of which happend to be an all JZX meet. So many ideas... Also picked up a set of factory wheels, along with a brand new factory spare a while earlier. All the OEM goodness slowly coming together
  8. Soundclip? or model so I can youtube it
  9. Couldn't agree with you more on those symptoms. I'm actually that keen to replace them its not even funny. Going to organise another trip up to 612 to get it sorted, and possibly see my mate up there who is a painter. While washing on the weekend, paint started flaking off one of my mirrors (it was already pretty badly sun damaged) so good excuse to get them redone, and maybe a roof spoiler colour coded at the same time ;) yet to track one down yet though (for a reasonable price)
  10. Aw man...I'm jelly of your LM's :( Do I want to know how much they stung you? Also, you're becoming a bit of a wheelwhore :)
  11. Nah, the top sticker is the advisory to change the timing belt at 100k, I put the lower sticker on with the service date and km's. But your not wrong I would love to know the history on it
  12. **** those coils have made all the difference to those wheels. I was hesistant when I first saw them but now you have the lows its coming together nicely. Makes me wish I had put coils in my Aurion before I sold it :( oh well..
  13. Its finally over. Oh man Cutting corners on removing crank pulleys are a bad idea; Props to the blokes at 612 who worked with me well into the morning to get the car running again after hours and hours of troubleshooting only to find that one missing tooth causing all our grief. Got to have a really good look underneath while it was up on the hoist, looking like a very honest car all in all. Rusty bolts here and there, looks to have come from a coastal area originally but nothing structural atleast. Found the source of thudding through gear changes too, diff bushes or whats left of them...will be getting replaced later in the year (sooner rather than later now I know thats the cause) Will probably end up dropping the gearbox and diff fluids while im at it and checking out a slight leak in the box which seems to be coming from the rear So next on the list is some clear corner markers and/or diff bushes, whichever I can get my hands on first
