Decided to paint the crankcase cover(if that's what its called) and took some pictures of the cars rude bits.

Image

Image

When I was done sanding, everything in the shed was covered in dust haha.

Image

Then it was painted, I ended up going with a cherry red instead of gloss black.

I tried it with both but choose the red.

Image

Image

Then it was put back together.

Image

Image

And that's how it looks now, All seals were replaced as well, Checked coils and plugs and they are fine maybe running a little hot but should be fine now.

On another note I was driving to work yesterday morning and the first exhaust flange broke loose from the Cat Flange.

I think the bolt sheared itself or unscrewed itself and just fell out and one was left hanging. Bought some new bolts and LOCKTIGHT and spent an hour in the sun fixing it in a Coles car park... Fun.

Probably going to get a new flange welded onto the exhaust side as it doesn't quite match the one on the cat.

Also trying to install white line rear bump stops and f**k me its a tight fit wouldn't mind knowing if there was a trick to it.

I also did an oil filter and oil change which the car loved.

I love rainy weekends haha so productive.

Have taken some photos over the past few weeks nothing major on the car just keeping it clean and trying not to crash in the wet weather.

Image

My new drive way...

Going to Sabbath :P

Image

And offcourse I had to take a picture right after it was washed haha

Image

Can't wait till I have saved enough money to do some more work on the car, also considering a getting a new one but the price difference between a BF MKII XR6 and an F6 isn't that far off and I am trying to convince myself to wait a few years.

haha yeah, mmmm soundwave yeah I went to the last one and saw some great bands but slayer and Metallica are good thrash bands but I only would have gone if megadeth showed up and if they do I will probably drive off a cliff. I'm also buying tickets for opeth today and cradle of filth on the 25th, poor car missing out on parts because all these f**k epic bands decide to tour Australia.

Okay so yesterday I contacted the bank and was approved for a loan mwahahaha...

I did this just to see how much I could get/ if I could get any at all and was actually approved, so I have been looking at cars mainly the BF MKII XR6 with the 6 Speed Auto which is quite hard to find.

If any one knows of anyone selling something similar let me know as I am car hunting :evil:

Looking at spending between $10000-$15000, the less I spend the more I have for extra's :wink:

Will be waiting for the right one because I rushed into buying my first car which was f**k stupid.
