  1. All sweet. Dude just changed the engine number over and signed off on it even though it lumps its head off haha. Was stressing hard for no reason really.
  2. Yep. Both cars are with new owners. Haven't ripped a skid yet. Needs a few things first. But will be the capable having 4-500hp once the motor is run in properly and tuned.
  3. Both sold and moved on. No imports in sight. Bought this instead.
  4. Any electricians here?

    It's abit shitty.
  5. Any electricians here?

    Word going around is that the whole profiling system is changing due to this very reason. Allegedly it will become based on what your company does so there will be specific quotas for the different areas of electrical work. I've had abit of trouble with mine due to working mainly on high voltage switchgear. And for wages as an apprentice, as above, being an adult apprentice you'd be on 3rd year wages from the start. So anywhere from 15-25 bucks an hour, once again dependant on how Jewish the company is.
  6. Any electricians here?

    you should always test for dead (no voltage) before playing with things, my biggest rule is trust no-one even if its someone you would trust because mistakes are made while isolating circuits and its your life on the line on the off chance, there are some situations where i work where you have to play with live wires but it is an absolute last resort. I would be extremely surprised if you would have to in that job. Most of the horror stories you hear about are freak accidents or someone doing something dodgey. You just need to be constantly concentrating on what your doing and know what you're messing with, it's a hell of a lot easier to simply ring/ask someone than run the risk. and probably best to ask your mate about hours, it ranges quite broadly from company to company.
  7. Any electricians here?

    sparky here currently working in the high voltage industry, ill dot point for ease -biggest things I think would be that you have common sense, willing to listen/pay attention and aren't a mong with basic handtools -tradeschool is a piece of piss if you are competent with basic math formula manipulation. The rest is just remembering facts, practical skills and reffering to standards for clauses and figures. -3year minimum apprenticeship IF your employer agrees to sign you off as competent early -as an adult apprentice you should start 3rd year wages (not 100% sure on NSW but in SA that is the industry standard) -once qualified you'll earn an absolute minimum of 60k -If you decided to start doing FIFO work you would be on no less than 120k a year upwards to the 200k+ in gas and oil fields -installing air cons you will be in roof spaces a lot, so be prepared for it to be stinking fuggin hot, I cant comment too much on the rest of the work as I'm not from that specific area of the industry, but generally speaking its pretty good. -your options are quite literally limitless there are so many additional courses and tickets you can do its insane (can list or you can google) -only drawback is it's a dangerous trade, you cant see electricity, smell it, taste it or hear it (for low voltage anyway) but one mistake can easily be your last
