Took a lot of stuffing about, but now have AU radiator installed. Oil cooler is sitting behind the drivers side "fog lamp" hole and air flow through this new set up seems really good for cooling purposes.

Oh, and yes - That is 3mm alloy. And yes, bumper is now held in position using original Ford mechanisms.

Have to work out a towing point....
:wink:

When doing a sunroof by yourself on a day with showers, wind and 7 degree's celcius you may be should work out a way of holding the cassette against the roof. Probably weighs 20kg and is hard work to line up in position against gravity and hold there whilst you make adjustments.

Of course, if all your friends weren't either
  • working and too straight and boring
  • using heaps of drugs and being too stoned and downright f**k useless
you would have no problem doing this at all.

By yourself, it is a nightmare. When you find the jigsaw has no blades so you make one out of an old hacksaw blade that keeps shattering... And the nibbler overheats and bends... Spent two hours just making and fixing tools. Started cutting hole in roof at 11am. Had sunroof in position and sealed against rain at 3:50pm. Picked up daughter from her house 20km away at 4:15 in pouring rain.

Nightmare enough that you'd probably just give up and go get some s**t tattoo's instead... If you had any brains or fear of s**t going wrong you would not cut holes in roof on rainy day.

But I was at the workshop to cut a hunk of metal off the handbrake as am repositioning it in the cabin. Since my big Bosch angle grinder has a disk seized on it the roof install seemed logical.

Tried a few similar things. They work, sort of. As soon as you climb out, have a look and need to adjust the position by two lousy millimetres the whole lot crashes to the ground again.

Bloody annoying.

Having quite a few fast grip style G-CLAMPS helped. As did using a ratchet tie down creatively.

Of course, having the sentenced gang member periodic detention workers looking over the fence and laughing when the rain starts coming down was a motivating factor. :lol:

Do you think this has any relationship to the right rear window switch working the front left door lock and central locking not controlling any other door !!?!

Also the left rear door is always locked (will not open as kid lock is on the inside!) and.... Well...

Bugger me.... Found this little mess of molten wire in the pillar leading to right rear door.

Awesome.

Got another tattoo to take mind off things....

The car. Sitting on bloody AU XR6 225/55/16's. Handles ugly.
Image
Or, maybe, as some of the more astute will point out ...
It's handling ugly due to the couch on the roof.

Three seater, two seater and single seater all been there for 11 days.
Which is a record.
Wellington has never been dry that long before.

The car is sitting on these wheels as some sour fat b**ch (M.M) stabbed my tyres.
The Police did nothing.

Even though I have her number plate and description.

NZ POLICE.
WINNING.


yeah, so - Been getting a few more old school gaming tattoo's.

Image
Image

And yes, that *IS* an old Mac in the back of the car. Complete with bullet hole in screen.

Had this bed on the roof for a few weeks too.

Came in handy for those random sunsets on the coast.

Can't beat Wellington on a good day.

Well, old Jedi master, the maniacal tyre stabbing broad (broad being an understatement as it happens) decided she was my girlfriend, all by herself.

She had problems, admittedly. I should have known better, admittedly.

But then, when you cannot sleep for two nights because of some chick repeatedly telling you horror stories from her life (the first was she made it through the birth canal relatively unscathed, the rest got worse...) ...

Well, I gave her oral just to shut her up.

Just this once.

It worked. She slept. And thank f**k did I need the sleep. Talkative trollop.

When she woke up (and found me gargling and brushing teeth for three hours) she said "what are WE doing today"

WHOOOOOAAAAAAUUUUPPP, back up the cart there old girl......

Explained we weren't a couple, nor any other sort of relationship. She came at me fists flying, so I sat on her for a brief period. Thing is, I had a knife in my hand at the time. Ooops.

She rang the Police (who we all know think very highly and totally unbiased and with no prejudice against old Fiendipoo's) and they kicked in my door with 7 detectives as I was bringing in drugs, selling drugs, threatening and stabbing my way through the underbelly of Newtown (again!)

Hahahahahahahahaaha

So, for sitting on a borderline personality disorder fatty whom had decided she was attaching her personality to mine (DANGER ME ROBINSON, ***DANG----- EEERRRRRR***) I got found guilty of my first ever MALE ASSAULT FEMALE charge (yes, there is such a thing in NZ... God help us) even though I was defended myself.

I get TWO HUNDRED HOURS COMMUNITY WORK for that and for getting rid of $6,666 worth of fines. The Police then "discover" they have been sitting on over $2000 worth of fines, so the very day after being sentenced I am back to paying of fines.

PO-LICE. Who needs them?

Sorry BENJ.... Unless you make money out of them, WHO THE f**k NEEDS THEM?



Oh wait, Citylimits... Oops, you didn't actually want me to answer that.

f**k.

There it is, am not deleting it now. May I rust in piece.

Actually, I need to fess up some here, mate. I was breaking my neck to
hear the story of how poor futurelane had her little black feet skashed so viciously.

I was releived to read of your employment of the age old art as suggested in his weighty disitation on the alternatives to electric shock treatment in a mental health application. The esteemed Dr Cunni Lingus developed this technique to be used in the very situation in which you had the nessesity to employ it.
However, it is important to also use the follow-up protocl. This means that during the brief resting period of calm you induced in your subject you have only a meager 20 seconds to make your escape before all hell breaks loose again.

Because just like the long nosed packiderm, women never forget who it was that p****d them off in the first place.

Serenity is ...
actually doing the gardening, working on your car, or some other slowly fulfilling task that takes time away.

I started working on car again today. For the first time in ages.

My daughters mum had to ring at 4pm as she was dropping my daughter off at home and I was not there.

I was still working on the car.

This is a good thing.

Unless you want to keep a relationship going. In which case it could be a drawback
