I have a couple of need to know asap questions as I was stopped by QLD Police last week and was given a defect notice (to front up at QT and have it checked) 1. apparently im missing a sticker which shows the factory type and wheel sizes, which they believe should be on the drivers side door jam...so where can I findone!

  14. Hey Guys I recently bought a factory Veilside rear wing which happens to be attached to a S15 bootlid. The four base screws have been taken out and I can only assume the wing is staying solidly in place by either black silicon or sickaflex. any ideas how I can seperate without damaging either bootlid or rear wing
  15. sr-ceffy- Thanks for that - I will try your method. cheers. sidenote: would this S15 wing fit a S13 bootlid?...does the base line up or do I need to re drill?
  16. SEAT SWAPS S13/S14/S15 R32/R33/R34

    Sorry guys after reading all the threads I'm still not 100% on this. My situation is this.. I have an s13 Silvia..I want to put in S15 front and S15 rear seats. 1. will I need S15 rails for the front ?... and are they "plug and play to my S13"? or will my S13 rails fit perfectly to the S15 seats..no welding etc... 2. Do the S15 rear seats require alot of modification.....and what if any..... 3. Are the S15 rears a perfect fit or is there a 15cm gap either side as noted??..and where is the gap??...any one have photos?? Cheers in advance
  17. Hi Guys I am a little confused about maximum LEGAL wheel sizes in QLD for a S13 I was told that if the tyres/wheels were within 3mm rolling circumfrence of the original 205/60/15 you would be ok. I have 223/35/19 on mine which is well within the limit. - http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecalculator.asp BUT I was told you cant go above 2" of the original factory size - being 15"....UNLESS a model came out in a larger size. 1. Is there any truth to this 2" rule 2. Did the X Type come out in 17"? - factory 3. Am I best to sell the 19"s and go to 17" Please no Smart A** comments re: tractor tyres = I have heard them al before! cheers in advance

  25. Hey Guys I was having trouble with my CA18DET a few months back and someone mentioned a S13 GURU mechanic in Burleigh on the Gold Coast. Can anyone let me know who this guy was or the workshop Apparently spot on in tuning etc. My CA18DET is blowing a heap of smoke on idle only - I have mixed fully Synthetic Mobile 1 in with Helix semi synthetic by mistake... so this may not be helping...and I have had trouble with the C.A.S which is now replaced. thanks in advance
