  1. Then...then....then.... BooooM! ! !...then crack open a beer like a real man
  2. That caught me out with my Green one -- and this is the problem when a previous owner had also been dicking about with the wiring -- I ordered new and what I got was 2 prong... I tried to install to drivers side and found 3x wires. one terminated out by previous owner... I learned the "don't assume you're working with originality" lesson here.
  3. I wondered why we don't see Rocketfoot much sometimes ... now we know
  4. Oh Boy , very sad -- one of my fav bands, great blues/rock and a great showman. RIP
  5. Isnt that a "funnel web" under your dash ? I Didn't think Aussies did "cars" ... I thought they were still using horse and cart powered by beer fuelled owners. aaaaanyway ...welcome - hope you have a fine time here
  6. Now I wonder why I like that colour
  7. Hi Tony I was worried about one of my fronts - I took the cap off - removed the split pin and rotated the castle 1/4 of a turn and all seems well but another 1000 miles I will replace anyway for peace of mind .
  8. Is it worth trying fabric/cloth tape to give the sliding surface a little skin resistance ?
  9. After 2x years I have thrown it away -- but Jeff - please keep your dollar
  10. Hi - I'm thinking of renewing my box also -- but I believe ( may be wrong here ) that there are many different types/ratios. So very interested in this topic -- hopefully an ex-spurt will drive by soon
  11. The windshield is located at the front of the car and should remain clear so you can see all those people driving their humdrum, puerile, mundane, eye-wateringly boring modern shit-boxes about.
  12. I thought Aussies signalled with a long tube that only plays one note
  13. Hi Moose That is repairable ... an easy piece of work for me -- but may be fiddly and irritating for someone who's not done it before Its done in the same way I rebuild blown track on Printed Circuit Boards in the electronic systems I deal with at work. I don't disagree - its a painstaking, often irritating job. Clean and lap down the faces where it has blown raised areas with tiny diamond tip of a Dremel (small rotary tool) Clean any copper spatter out of the trenches Get slightly oversized diameter copper wire - remove the enamel and make a piece to fit precisely into your gap Place a tiny drop of nail varnish (Yes ....girlie nail varnish) in the gap (clear is best so you can see the substrate you're working on) With tweezers lay the piece into the gap and let the varnish harden (5mins) Solder each end delicately ("Sodder" in Amercanese ) Then flatten to the same surface height by removing excess copper/sodder with fine diamond dip with Dremel Fine polish with wet/dry emery paper voila - a new track
  14. Took him to a show. He got surrounded by a whole bunch of farting little Brit cars and Euro-boxes
  15. Tell the Doc you'd feel a whole lot better having your ointments and creams rubbed in to you by a whole load of scantily clad hot chicks.
  16. Hey JPAZ How's progress after you tried impersonating a chicken drumstick on a BBQ? are you all patched up? Hope y'aaall is ok...
  17. OUCH ! ! ! .. That doesn't sound like a good day-- A good job we (from these forums) weren't at your house on 4th July-- otherwise you would have gone to hospital wrapped in oily lint cloths, dynamat and duct tape I hope all heals well and quick...
  18. If one behaves like a tard... I think some drivers should be jailed for criminal damage to beauty and history If I were judge the sentence would be 20 years NO parole...and when released their license only allows them to drive up to 90Hp ...no more.
  19. Yes ...this is it ... a nice place to visit - but by the horns of Beelzebub , you wouldn't want to stay.... too many weirdos and nutjobs
  20. Actually 4th of July should be a bad day for me - because I feel I was born on the wrong side of the Atlantic -- my heart is over there where you are. If King George III wasn't such a dickhead, I could be here or over there.. I'd be able to make the choice. But ....ooooooooooh ! no ! ... A lover of Nascar - and a big Waltrip, Earnhardt & Wallace fan - I had the privilege of driving Texas Motor speedway in 2014 _ I managed 30 laps until my legs were like jelly - It was done with previous years car with a coach/trainer...and when you hit turn 3 expect head to be pulled from shoulders. Which is why I have so much respect for those drivers doing 200+laps. . I Love Stangs, Challengers Chargers, Impalas, Stingrays, Wildcats, Trans Ams, Ford Torinos, Fairlane's, Buick Skylarks, Riviera's, and Chevy Bel Airs - even 51 Mercury's I absolutely detest and hate puerile, mundane, humdrum, dreary Brit/Euro-shit-box cars (look up Morris Marina - nuff said) I love baseball --I "HATE Cricket" ...anyone liking Cricket is a satanic genetic disorder- that should be sacrificed to the gods by hurling them into a volcano ...so the cosmic question ..WTF happened ? A friend of mine in New Hampshire said...it's because god wanted me to know what "Pissed off" properly feels like. = I need a Psychiatrist(shrink) because my dream job is to buy 18 acres of Alabama real estate and run a junkyard ...but have a corner devoted to top end shiny Mustangs and Mopar.
  21. It's a good job you did kick us out - otherwise these forums would be filled with these cars ---there's more horse power in a food blender.
