Hill Run

So I haven't driven my car since I ran it into the wall and I've been getting the itch hard.
Today I finally had the time to use a mates Mig at his workshop to fix my seat mount. I was originally gonna create a new one but this became a real mission and I realised I could use the old broken one. So I bent that one back and welded it up properly and now it's sweet as.

Went for a hill run tonight and it was awesome. Drove with a mate in his 1200 ute, an 86 and a guy I recently met with an n/a 4a ke.

Such an awesome night!!

Tail lights all fixed

So i put my final tail light in yesterday afternoon. One of the pair that arrived from Kay's parts had a huge crack in it, but he was quite amazing about it and sent a new one that day. It arrived incredibly quick so I am very impressed with the service...

Still no work on the rear quarter apart from the occasional hammering... i think im just going to skid it for a bit and fix it when i can be bothered.

Oh they are so clean and clear!

New Front Lights In

So i spent the small hours of daylight i had after work yesterday putting the new front light surrounds on the corolla.
As you would have seen in previous pics, i got a brand new grill, surrounds for both sides, new parkers (which i have always been missing one untill now) and brand new indicators for the fenders.

Here's how it looked before. These pics really don't show much of the difference, but you can see the old surrounds and grill are just dotted with stone chips after having been repainted twice by myself. The passanger side parker has always been missing, and the indicators are faded and scratched...

With the new lights in;
This pic really isnt that great, you would be amazed at how dark this photo really is (I love my camera on f/1.4 and 1600ISO lol). You get the idea though, it certainly has cleaned it up a bit.

So hopefully i don't run the front of it into something next time lol

New lights!

Finally turned up, so cool to now have new lights all round and a new grill.
Unfortunately the LH taillight turned up with a big crack in it, thankfully it's not the one I needed to replace and the guy has happily said he'll send me a new one :)

Mounted up my new light this arvo while I had like 5 mins of daylight left lol

Also on a random side note, I bought myself an ASUS 24" monitor today. Ohhhh it is so amazing, I love it so much!

Went and helped him pull the motor out today along with Guy Wuoti who was a huge help with the car
