While it's on the hoist should we convert it from girl to man(ual)??

 

I think the sunday would suit me better as I think I'm starting night shift on sunday.

 

I would be so much cooler to be able to say .... I'm going to HK or USA or something, but alas my life is dull, colourless and boring  :'(

I'll be honored to meet you all in person! Should I bring anything? (Don't say beer -.-)

A dictionary?

 

See the first post of this thread as to what to bring.

Any Wigga Knob-Headedness from you or your mate, & you'll be asked to leave.

That's gold Lurch! Hehe.

 

Which way are you going to mount them, 12 o'clock or 9? I have mine at 9 and undoing everything to screw in piston and change pads is a real pain.... If i did it again i would mount them at 12 o'clock. Handbrake was easy, just shorten the arms that are on the calipers and adjust rod in trans tunnel.

Ha nice come back Rev.

And Simon I like your crack about the luxuries on your car.  :D Remind me why we have 240's & 260's again. Oh yeah so we can spend mega bucks changing them over with modern accessories like yours. Ha Ha

If i keep offering my Zed up for workshop days i might be able to get the whole thing finished by the end of the year.  The Rear Disc Conversion is really a necessity  ;D

Dale, if you come to my house, I can take you the rest of the way...and Mark, did you still need that 260Z mag? I've got some parts to bring for various people so why not fill the zed right up?

Yes still need the Alloy mate, that would be fabulous  ;D Maybe other's can bring bits and we could do a bit of a swap meet. The Ballarat Swap Meet has been cancelled, forever.
