    If that is a pool que then it is an easy fix. A little sanding and stain.

    Could be better, could be worse.

      Hi Anthony

      Thought I'd bump your thread and see whether your car is up and running now? So close!

      Hopefully you're not caught up in fires. If you are, stay safe.

      Cheers

        thanks for checking in mate, fires have gotten really close & still on a watch & act alert where the car is kept.

        Still yet to run have been chasing shadows trying to get a replacement alternator which thankfully I acquired last night. Also was put on a “no more money on the car” by the now wife while we sorted the last of the wedding. But wedding is wrapped up we’re now hitched, I’m hoarding dollars for the ecu & waiting for my fabricator to return to work eta end of Jan of the stars align

          Good to hear all's ok - and congratulations on getting hitched! Life must take priority over cars :)

              Hi Anthony

              Just thought I'd bump your thread and check in to see how you're going? I'm presuming that COVID-19 has put a dent in finishing off the car, but I hope all is well!

              I've been chipping away at a few small niggling issues on my car with it sitting around a lot more than in the past - it's back to running well again. About to drop the radiator to do a full ignition service (new cap, rotor, coil & plugs) seeing as the cap and rotor have done 100,000km since I did my swap! It's a pain having to pull the radiator to swap the distributor cap... maybe wasted spark is the way forward :)

              Cheers

                Hey Luke

                Covid has made work mental (I work in superannuation) but I’ve taken a much needed holiday & it’s been full steam ahead on the e30. Picked up the ECU on Thursday, cars booked in on the 30th of Sep for the exhaust & we should be firing it up.

                wow a 100k since your swap‽ that’s the definition of a solid swap, I wish I got to enjoy that many km’s out of mine before I broke it.

                I’ve been lazy uploading photos to Flickr to post here, but if you’re on insta I upload heaps there “@antb_e30” but I’ll do a photo update here soon

                Cheers

                  So here’s a bit of a photo dump since the whole COVID fiasco I’ve struggled to spend time on the old iPad to upload photos. Since the last update I decided that I needed to 5stud swap the car.... this didn’t help me finishing the engine side because I have poor self control

                  I also made my own front swaybar linkages machining up some spacers to use the Ireland engineering e30 ones I had

                    Nice update there Ant! Good to see the car will be running around the end of the month. Exciting times. In superannuation you must have been really flat out the last few months.

                    Have you had a wheel alignment done with the SRS concept lollypops? (I checked out your insta thread) I had been thinking of ordering some for a while, but thought I'd wait for someone else to try them first to see whether they work as advertised.

                    I took mine for a long run tonight and it's back to 100% with the new ignition stuff installed.

                      Yeah the super industry has been nuts since March glad I’ve finally got a break away for a few weeks.

                      yet to do an alignment, caster wise they are spot on visually I’ve just got to adjust the toe angle as the front right is about 6-10 degrees out.

                      I’m hoping the fire up goes smoothly cause I’m itching to take the car out for a blip
