    Chicken an are we neighbours! I live behind Vancouver golf club. Super close to the Petro can you speak of on Austin haha. Ill here the advice of my fellow bc boys. I'll build er into stock form and get the inspection done in primer, then I'll carry on as I have planned. Probably better for the bank at the end of the day anyway. Get her roll g and strest9out the expensive pieces Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Thanks guys. I think i will continue with it id be silly not to. I spoke with an agent yesterday and they feel that provided im not doing some shady half arse work it should be fine. They gave me the inspection list so I can be sure I hit all the points. I've got a local guy with a bunch of cars. We might pull a fast one and switch some things around .... Well see Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    It'll be safe, but modified suspension parts etc, having heims in any steering linkage is illegal. Lots of little things that out wonderful monopoly insurance company likes to play at. I guess I could put all the stock stuff in mechanically then go from there. Hell I suppose it doesn't even need paint. It's just the headache of assembly and another full strip to finishbsome stuff and lay paint Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk
  5. So I bought the s30 with i documents and getting a registration (title) isn't a big deal. I'm basically finished that BUT the insurance company tells me the car was registered out of province and that I need a pre registration safety inspection. Frig, how am I supposed to get and pass an inspection on a car that's completely torn down. My options are put it together and bring it in, or do I continue on the path of building it and hope at the end of the line I don't get screwed somehow and have a car I've put a bunch of money and time into that I can't register for some reason. Ahhhh I'd like to go with build it and deal with it later but I wanted to do marker light deletes, suspension will have heims in it so that's a no go a bunch of stuff...... Maybe I should just try and track down a local rusty $^!# bagged car and swap Vin's. How can I rivet a id plate in Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk
  6. Hey guys. Over my collection period here I have 6 wheel cylinders. I've been tempted to do a rear disc conversion but read mixed reviews and figure I'll just run it stock at first. Should I just clean up these old cylinders and pull the piston to see if shes in nice shape inside? Any other things to look for. I'm sure out of the 6 I must have 2 good ones!

    I wish I had gotten to do the floors myself. Not super happy with the PO work. I might tune the drivers side up Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Discussion on idea for "air horn" fix

    The rockers are good and solid throughout. I agree on the massaging, i held the quarters up and they will need some flexing to get good alignment. I just wanna research best ways for panel fitment, im gunna but weld but get such mixed reviews on small gap vs no gap vs whatever other method haha. The tabco are a bit thicker than stock so ill have to work around that. I might go the cleco clip route and nick off the top 3/8 of an inch then be left with a zip disc wide gap to weld into. By zip I mean the thinnest I can get. http://www.musclecarrestorations.com/articles/tech/metal-work/welding-sheet-metal.html Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Discussion on idea for "air horn" fix

    There's a local guy who basically is selling a front clip. The frame rails and stuff are shot but those wings and the core support are in great shape. Mine are wrinkled and thrashed because of the impact it took at some point. Im considering buying it for 175 and then cutting and replacing those pieces with nice straight ones.

    I'll have a look i was giving them a look ever and seemed pretty decent, heavier guage than stock and seemed well pressed. Thanks for the heads up tho. I'll make sure it wasn't pinched or stretched Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Discussion on idea for "air horn" fix

    Here's where I'm at tonight. It started going in good then the heat moved it abit. She burned a few holes i had to chase on the stock sheet metal but overall its there! Not as pretty as I wanted but it's solid. It's actually 16 guage I used over the straight run. Did that because of the double sheet metal I saw inside of that "tube". Now I need to figure out how to work those front little wing pieces ahead of the rad support. Slowly but surely. FedEx delivered my tabco stuff today yeehaw I got me some fresh sheet metal. Hopefully since the quarters are in relatively decdnt shape away from the rotten lip... I wont be chasing holes around ha. I appreciate all the input aswell, this is a different ball game than blasting 1/4 inch plate together. Hopefully once I'm through with all the front end stuff the rear quarter panel fit up and welding will be smooth. I'd hate to screw that up. Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Discussion on idea for "air horn" fix

    My attempts for repair are struggling! While that one run I posted in the middle is pretty straight forward im struggling with shaping the metal for where it ties in the back and gets wider and also I assume I'll have a hard go at making the front. Any suggestions or links to tin bashing and forming steel into odd shapes? I have a set of hammer and Dolly's plus various other smashing devices and a oxy/acetelyne torch should i need heat. Im wondering if i should have used the stock guage steel to simplify shaping Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk
