    This weeks job was to mount my seats to the car, but nothing ever goes smoothly, and there is always that last bit of rust...

    I will have to get the specs of my cams out there. Mine are a custom asymmetrical grind that is available to everyone now. They cost me an eye watering amount as I paid for tooling so we will see how they go when my engine finally gets back to me.
  3. This week I get all the remaining parts of my Beetle 'John Lemon' painted, but it doesn't all go to plan.
  4. Well they keep trying to get it out anyway
  5. I am giving them a run for their money
  6. Sounds amazing. I can only imagine how it will look and sound when it is filmed on something other than a potato
  7. It is what I am after, but I just have to exchange the one I have for the correct one, and it is brand new with the horn, so it is the easy way to go. I just need to wait a few weeks for it
  8. It looks like the one, but it looks pretty rough compared to my nice neat car now . It might be better for me to just wait for the nice shiny new one from the UK I think
  9. Hey Lee, I just saw this. I need a wheel to fit roughly a 22mm spline. Let me know, otherwise I have pretty much sorted a new one from the UK anyway.

    This week I finish assembling my L28 engine for my 240z and do the timing.
  11. I don't know why this has not been snapped up. Slant nose, LHD, Cab, 'Super Carrera', with no engine or box, for ONLY $55k. Bargain! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1984-BLACK-PORSCHE-911-SUPER-CARRERA-CABRIOLET-SLANT-NOSE-WIDEBODY-NO-ENGINE/273383876523?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20140106155344%26meid%3D51aef4e68ad547359201f637bf427228%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D232879777454%26itm%3D273383876523&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  12. ..but are you taking more of a hit selling to the dealer than the low ballers? I was stuck selling my father in-laws 2011 C200 Merc, with 200,000k's recently. That was a pain in the butt due to k's. It was priced $5k lower than any similar car on the market, but I was still dealing with offers 2/3rds of asking. I love buying cars, but hate selling. Unfortunately it is a necessary evil

    This is the way the book says to do it. I suppose because I need to install all of the chain tensioners, etc, with the head on but the cover off.

    This week I finish off the head assembly and mount it to the block. It is coming together and I am getting excited.
  15. This is very interesting. Particularly as I have been reading a Pistonheads thread a couple of days ago following a pommy guys build of a 986 with an Audi turbo V6 conversion. He had 2 small extinguishers in the car, and he used both of them to no use and watched his car go up in flames. Maybe a couple of these could have helped.
