  1. Hi Brian - I thought you would still be getting used to having a shed, rather than a carport. Need to lose that centre pillar and put a full-width door in. Makes a huge difference when you can centralise the car you're working on, for better access...
  2. When we last went, aerial speed monitoring patrols were the go (1990!). I expect they've got even more sophisticated "enforcement" methods now... Look out for this sign on your way back - it means the really straight bit has finished and you'll need to steer... BTW They got the spelling right on the sign, unlike your good self...๐Ÿ™„
  3. Yes, great photography, but I'm surprised that a mechanical engineer should be so amazed by the 4 stroke cycle and the Bernoulli Principle. Didn't he learn this at uni? But thanks for posting๐Ÿ˜„
  4. Nice to see, but it's a silly price that would condemn the car to being a garage queen.
  5. That's about 3x what @Mike D'Silva and I sold our project '86 944 for, and we made a nice profit! Times have changed.๐Ÿ˜•
  6. Hoist's going to be occupied for a while - I've found that the shitbox Hilux I bought 18 months ago needs new front brake pads! (They're probably the originals) Oh the anxiety! Even though the discs are unmarked, who knows what potential horrors may be unmasked? Now to find a place where I can source some new pads...
  7. Here's my new one that I've just installed and commissioned. You're welcome to use it - it's only 639km and a border crossing...๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. Well, the shed's up and HAPP is stood up and partially bolted down. Waiting for the Epoxy floor man to come now...
  9. Yes @Jason E, true but not exactly. I had Italian car fever quite badly, owning a 125, 128, 124 wagon, 124BC, 131 and 2 Alfettas and a Lancia Beta. I became quite good a welding... Then I married a girl with a 124CC. Still have the girl but the CC is long gone, along with the other Italians.
  10. Another HAPP, my second, waiting for me to pick up. Sold the first one (installed in 2013) with my house and sheds ๐Ÿ˜ช. Now waiting for my new shed to be built at our new place... Great support from Maree and Gavan, highly recommended.
  11. Good point Peter, they're all organic compounds of varying length carbon-hydrogen molecules. Synthetics have more tightly controlled chain lengths, minerals are more widely dispersed.
  12. +1 for Styling automotive. Had a number of air-cooled 911 resto's on the go when I visited 12 months ago. Did a great job on my RS bonnet (TTRS, that is...)๐Ÿ˜Ž
  13. I do indeed John! Being magazine editor for PCQ for 5 years was a testing time for a grammar Nazi like me. A delicate balance between retaining the character of a story and suppressing need to re-write tracts of text to satisfy spelling/grammar correction urges... You've convinced me, John. My Audi S4 is "Doody" from "Howdy Doody" > "Audi Doody". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howdy_Doody Most of you will be too young to know this...๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. "Heeler", John, it's a dog, not a doctor...๐Ÿ˜Ž
