    yeah finished sanding long time ago, been so busy trying to get summer ready forgot all about the post, turns out the panel itself is damaged so I got another panel and sanded and sprayed and just up to cutting it and then changing it over.

    have been madly window tinting my home at the moment getting it ready for summer time. if I can keep the heat out then hopefully air con bill wont be as high this year :) so 30 meter roll of window tint is nearly all gone.

    watching the Holden dream cruise has brought back my passion so I will be getting a few more jobs done on it really soon :)

    currently trying to work out what the heck goes under the back seat rear air vents, can't seem to find the correct name for it so I can get the part itself.

    Well hoping it helps

    Reflective tint?
    Only issues is when the ambient air is 35C inside and out, thats when it gets fun but any window tint should help reduce glare.

    Dude, window tinting is done on the inside only

    Cars, home and businesses all on inside as cannot be exposed to the elements

    PS, even on their website it says to install on the inside
    https://www.protinting.com.au/installation-instructions/house-office-instructions/

    ROUGH CUTTING

    The film is installed on the inside of the window. Roll film out on a table that you can cut on. Add 20mm to the height and width of the windows measurements and cut the film to this size. This will allow trimming at a later stage.

    All good :) I got blinds on the outside anyways :) they had the indoor bamboo blinds on sale so I got them and painted them with outdoor paint they been up for nearly 10 years now doing really well :) hey when you got 30 meters for $30 and it turns your place into a cave I like it :) back of the house I got shade cloth folded over a few times sewed it together with wire and put over windows. if I want to see out side I just check my cameras lol :) better then taping newspaper to your windows. I hate the idea of metal roller shutters what would you do in case of a fire and there was no power to them to make them go up.

    Update time... just because :) so I found my tail shaft Allen key bolts loose so fixed that problem. Had a weld job done, and getting another weld job later.... Funniest thing after 400,000 ks still had the original rotors on the front damn they were warped... so new front rotors and pads.... new spark plugs and leads and still chasing this annoying problem with vibration :( :( :( so tonight I think I may have worked out the last piece to the puzzle mm will see tomorrow. since I did the front brakes, I might as well do the rears Thinking of rust proofing the under body dunno how, but gonna give it a go. then I think I'm gonna quit for a while.... Or take a long break. 27783034_10155793396743564_1712247747_n.jpg 27781466_10155793396353564_165413444_n.jpg

    Hi
    What needed welding?
    How did you go about it? As in prep. Only disconnecting the battery?

    Hi Lex
    Have a look at the pics of the weld job.... I got it professional done :) one pic you can see the rust nest pic part of the weld job :) it had to have 2 panels welded in this is the underneath one.

    Oh and for all those people that said my wrap job wouldn't hold up mmm well it's still there 2 years later so U were wrong. actually looks brand new I'm impressed with that job I did :)

    Vibration at speed can be a dry bush

    My swaybar D-Bush was dry so going on motorways in Sydney which are uneven and rippled would cause vibration.

    Redid the grease and done and no issues now.

    Its because when dry they gripped really well and literally added bounce to the suspension.

    There is some newer Nothelane D Bushes which in fact have felt like material instead of grease im eyeing out cos grease will always dry out
