Thanks for the comments guys. As fiend so tactfully recorded, I am not looking to change anything on it, it's all original and I know a car dealer that sells this type of thing so I may be looking to make a little money...

I did see some wicked looking fold out side ways cup holders in an 08 Vectra up pik a part that would go mint into the rear of the centre console...and I do have a spare one...

But that ties in with the moving to OZ thing, I've split witht he sheila that the plan entailed and am looking like mad for an apprenticeship or decent course, applying left right and centre. OZ is definitely on the cards but will be a fair way off...unless they have an apprenticeship for me??

Yes mitch, I will change the oil, every 5 000 ks :wink:

Mine don't anymore since I bent it some more,but my stick is completely "custom" so who knows with the real one....

Someone said a couple of comments ago that with those bluebird ones mounted where hes got them, lower than mine, they don't foul on the stick.

Hope that cures your curiousity, actualy I'll just quote myself so the pics come up again :D

Ok here:

If you mean 'Welsh Plugs', the small round brass plugs in the block? Then it can be a pain in the a**.

There are welsh plugs on both sides of the block and one in the rear.

You will need to remove the manifolds to get at them.

There is a plug at back of motor underneath bellhousing (yes, behind the fly wheel....) too matey... But hey, if it ain't broken, why fix it?

Damn. I would have bought that car for $1000 just to swap boxes with it.

Oh piss on you and your red Coon.

"Fair and reasonable" would be better than "if the price is right" mate. Don't you still owe me $20 anyway? At the rate that Stacey Jones loans money (1000% pa) that would be about $40 by now.

If, in fact, you don't owe me $20 (highly likely to be honest) then please forget the above.

Which brings me back to "fair and reasonable".

You'll be wanting about $3000 for the hunk of redness that is your 80's coon with a Mont badge.

A) I don't have that much.
B) Hahahahah
C) Three grand
D) Hahahahah

What're the hire purchase options looking like at this point?

I could buy it for $4,500,000 pay $333 (the rest payable over time) and simply take the T5 out and throw an auto at it and sell it back to you for $4,499,666.

And you'd still get a million bucks for it on TradeMe judging by your uncanny luck.

HARD HARD work mate.

This project is 20% of ONE paper, and I'm taking four. Aaaargh. I'm in trouble matey.

Have another hand in worth 50% of another paper due on Thursday and... Well.... It's bloody hard work man. I may have to give up my drug free lifestyle and get on some crack el pronto.


And, with that, I must get off the computers and get home before that bloody ankle bracelet starts complaining at me.
