So that's it for the Lane, Josh? When i first got the topic notification by email, i was thinking "s**t, i wonder if he has boosted it already" :lol:

It's been a great thread to follow mate, the Lane (or should i say XR-Lane), saw some nice tasteful mods and the work put in was excellent. Can't wait to see what will become of the next project - watching with interest :wink:



Yeah thanks mate. The biggest problem is I can never work on the Lane because I always need it. If you guys remember when I did the engine and T5 conversion, I did it over Easter and just had enough time to do it.

At least this way the new car can be stripped and everything can get attention in my own time.

No not just yet mate, but its a certainty :)



I guess its just a matter of finding the right one now


Yeah need to find one with a stuffed engine or trans :lol:

Hello people, just thought I might bump my thread as I have been away for a time now.

Looking for a temporary car at the moment, in order to take the NF off the road and rebuild it. The biggest problem I have found with modding/working on a car is you need the car on a daily basis. I have never really been able to finish everything I have started, due to the fact the car can not be off the road for long.

I will let you guys know once the new car finds its new home in my driveway and then the fun begins with the NF.

Cheers

Josh

s**t Josh you are alive!
I heard a rumour that you put on a burqa and joined a gay muslim extremist group and the next time we saw you would be on the late night news!
Oh thinking of it maybe I actually started that rumour instead of just hearing it............. :P
Good to see you around again!

Cheers guys, my current job does not give me much time to do much of anything these days.

Dan, Craig has been a little busy at the moment and hasn't been on the forums much either. We should catch up for another BBQ in the new year, the last one was fun.

Now I have the new runabout, its a girls car :lol:

It actually runs quite well to my surprise, just needs a few little things like a indicator lens and remove the pin striping witch is half missing anyway. But I am pretty excited because I can start pulling the NF down soon. Its getting a little busy with Christmas just around the corner, but we will get into it soon.

Cheers

Nothing wrong with that chicks Mazda Joshie. Don't let them upset ya mate. I had a 323 and a 626 --_ s**t, I mean LAZERS, sorry --- once upon a time. Just don't let the oil warning light ever come on, you'll be fine.

And don't check for rust in the A-Pillars.

Yeah its actually a well built car, the guy wanted $1200. When I got there I when I went to start it, it diddnt LOL. I had a look and noticed the battery terminals where loose. Got it started and went for a spin. it zips around quite nicely for what it is, so I offered him $800 and he accepted.

Machinery maintenance. Mainly slashers, sprayers and hay bailers. This time of year is busy, everyone is bailing hay, slashing etc.

Yeah with the work I do, Im always getting covered with grease and welding spatter, not good for the interior by any means.

Cheers

Been working on the Laser so it looks clean and make sure its reliable.

Done the usual things when one buys a used car like oil and filter, polish and wax.

And today I bought some new shoes for it. they are 17x7 and not sure what they are besides ROH.

Should get plenty of street cred with these :lol:

Car is nearly ready to use as my daily.
