  2. Is it the cowl panel you need (sits below windscreen)?
  3. Just bumping this up as a reminder again. Had a few new members join and try this scam again. Accounts have been deleted. From now on I'm going to be even stricter with new member post approval. Do not send money to new members with 0 posts or to anyone telling you to email someone else who has a part you're after. I may look into ways of reading PMs being sent by new members so I can catch these scams early on.
  4. Both are scammers who's account has been deleted. Hope you didn't send them any money?
  5. Worth revisiting this old topic perhaps? https://www.viczcar.com/forums/topic/6612-honda-civic-wiper-motor-replacement/ Write up here: http://ace240z.com/HondaMotorUpgrade.html You can find these Honda Motors new on eBay too around $180. But as Alan mentioned in this comment: Thread comment I'm not sure if he's referring to the Alternator or the wiper motor though?
  6. Hi Folks, I've noticed 2 things failing when posting replies here. 1. Youtube embedded videos produce a 403 result. 2. Quoting other topics/comments seems to also fail due to the embedding. I'm not sure why yet, but will chase it up with the software providers to understand if it's a server configuration issue. Update: Posted in support forum here.
  7. Hi Jeff, You may want to redact your email from a public forum/post. Helps prevent unwanted spam and scammers from sending you messages. Best to send Craig a PM.
  8. Another scammer recently signed up and tried it on. Have blocked him/her and deleted their account, but just be wary if you're getting PMs with offers to contact other people with parts etc..
  9. I'm not sure on 260z's, but on 240z's you can just purchase this plug to bypass the regulator (external 1). https://www.thezstore.com/product/178/alternator-upgrade-adaptor-70-72-240z
  10. Caching is sort of resolved, but not 100% because the hosting company doesn't support a package called redis which is used for improved caching performance. I'm contemplating moving hosts. Since it may improve the overall site performance. But it still won't be hosted in Australia. Which would be nice to bring hosting onshore for lower latency. The good news is I managed to update to the latest software version after a few hiccups earlier.
  11. I'm having issues with the caching module on the site, so it's probably performing slower than it should be. Seeing what I can do to resolve this.
  12. Hi folks, Just an update. I've had to cut back on the cost of hosting. It was getting up to $440 per month. Which is just not sustainable, given the site isn't as busy these days and I've had less time to post here myself. Talking with the hosting company I've downgraded the plan, which means the site may be slower than before but the cost is about $100 AUD per month. Much more sustainable. I'm working on some fine tuning to help improve the site and server performance. Also some emails have been hitting spam filters. I'm doing my best to resolve this.
  13. Did you guys get any email notifications this time?
  14. Update on this, I'm currently contemplating moving away from our hosting company who I've been with for nearly 15 years! They put their rates up and with USD vs AUD$ exchange range hosting is now costing around $430 per month! So I'm contemplating moving to Invision Power Hosted Solution - which means I wouldn't need to manually run periodic updates and think will save some money on hosting with it. I'm pretty sure things like the emails not being received would also get fixed in that move. Which I haven't had a chance to dig further into yet.
  15. I used Gundam marker works well...

    Economically you'll spend more getting it fixed than a reproduction new one will cost you. Unless your able to fix it yourself of course. Then it's just time / effort.
  17. It's the perfect compliment to YASS! Probably why they got rid of the creepy clown..
  18. I spent some time trying to diagnose this, but no such joy yet. I have a feeling phpmail is a problem since I updated to PHP 8.0+ I might see if the hosting company can offer some help with troubelshooting.
  19. Did you get this email reply? Just changed something in Cpanel (was attempting to remove spam emails via email fitlers).
  20. I've had reports that email notifications have stopped working. Can anyone else confirm if they are not getting emails for thread replies etc..?
  21. Hi folks, Just a heads up I've run some updates including upgrading to the newest version of PHP. Overall this should improve the user experience but let me know if anything is not behaving correctly post upgrade? Thanks, Gavin.
