Was that the one with a few cracks in the paint or something? How much did you end up getting it for?

 

I've made some decent progress on my trailer rebuild. Will post pics later.

I got my sil back from camo's, put a stock rear bar on for now, he also pulled my rear guards a bit for me... its subtle but they look much more even with the wheels now, and don't scrub at all... its weird seeing it with a stock rear bar again, and now can see how massive my varex cannon is since its not hiding behind a rear bar anymore.. i dunno, doesn't look half bad i spose.. with any luck i'll find another rear bar down the track tho.. oh, the best bit was i got reimbursed since the same rear bar could not be sourced... car fixed, guards sorted, and i get paid... can't argue with that! :)

Clutch is in, gearbox is in, car is driving well, she's looking clean. I lowered her 20mm all round today. Lowest point 70mm :ph34r: Was meant to be picking up Cusco Castor arms today but the seller never got back to me :( epic Driver side Castor fail from crash still :(

My 'mid season freshen up' is coming along nicely, fingers crossed car will be all back together late next week.

 

- JHH is finishing off the engine refresh which includes HKS headgasket, new bearings, rings and studs (on top of my previous forged build)

- OS Giken Twin plate came back from DCS rebuild

- Tomei expreme manifold (which had cracked) is off getting tig'ed and HPC coated

- Crap load of seals and gaskets have started arriving and doing a proper job of the oil cooler setup with a Taark bolt on oil adapter.

 

Will post up some pics as it comes back together.

Still need to make a visit to pirtek for hose, but I will just be using industrial standard fluid hose not going braided. I dont need bling.

Looks good Clint but what are the control arms doing at that height?

 

Jared can you give me a ball park on what they charged you for the freshen up?

 

 

Here are the pictures of the trailer i'm refurbing so I can deregister my car and tow it to track days etc.

 

The original trailer. You can't see how bent the tray was from this photo but you get the idea pretty quick with the following photos.

The bent platform and structural brackets removed as well as wheel guards.

New structural brackets welded in place and a coat of silver over the welds

P1000950.JPG

 

New checkerplate ramps installed and welded in place. Still have more to do as you can see.

P1000953.JPGP1000955.JPG

 

I've got new mud guards and all new lights but need to flip the trailer over first to do all the welds underneath then I will install these. The trailer got a fair bit more bracing under the checkerplate as well as it was quite flimsy.

Mase, about 3k I can give you a break down once it is done. The head is getting serviced at the same time (stripped and cleaned, reseat valves, set valve heights and spring pressures). I could have saved some money by ordering parts from Japan but until it was pulled down we weren't sure what it needed so it would have been another delay. So far so good with JHH. Wil took the time to ask me how I use the engine and what I turn it to, what oil I use etc. He is building the engine and setting the tolerances to suit.

it took a fair bit of intense negotiating but i got him down to $6,200 with wheels etc but no coilovers, it only had tanabe brand coilovers in there anyway, so no big loss ^_^

Nice work. I saw it and then started thinking that could be a good buy, then looked at my wallet and realised I was dreaming!

wasnt a bad buy i dont think, no obvious signs of abuse, gearbox was smooth, motor compression came back fine as it would wanna be, only rebuilt late 2008 ^_^

 

see how it goes i guess....

^^ They have to pull the box out, pull it apart (and i mean apart not just open it up) and replace the circlip. It's more expensive than getting a 5 speed. Place in Sydney does/ did them and were charging $250 for the circlip (titanium) and about $1k for the labour. I looked into it back in the day.

Blerg, don't want a 5 speed :(. Will be pulling the box out myself anyway, may as well get it done while it is out. Just need to find somewhere that does it. Who was the company in Syd?
