  1. Acetone and auto transmission fluid is a home brew penetrating oil.
  2. You can make a puller yourself for <$10. Whatever you do, soak them in penetrating oil - acetone and auto fluid - for a few days before you try pressing or pulling them out.
  3. Yes, nice work, but please please DO NOT let your next post be: "Hey guys, how do you get the spindle pins out? - I've tried all the ham-fisted techniques I know and I've butchered the threads but I can't get them out"
  4. I’d suggest you have it media blasted and etch primed to see what is surface rust and what requires replacement. The process will reveal the actual good, bad and ugly. You’ll then know exactly how to proceed and eliminate the guesswork.
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong but a chap on here called George stated the same thing a few years ago. Each time he pops his head up it's shortly followed by tales of morning sickness! Still, there's always time in retirement. Good luck Gary.
  6. You're welcome to come and check out my engine-stand rotisserie and take measurements. I loaned it out once but never again! PM me if interested.
  7. Agree 100% with the previous comments regarding just knock the dents out of the floor. You can also make cover rails to go over the crushed ones. Remember there will be sealer sprayed underneath and sound-proofing, plus carpet on the floor. Too many folks dig themselves into deep holes with these project and it leads to some despair and project delays.
  8. Philistines... Stick to your imported rubbish and leave Aussie Icons alone.
  9. About minus 100% nicer.

  11. Making yet another push to rationalise shed space. Pick up - Sutherland Shire. Fridge 300ltrs Bench 1200 x 1070. 1030h on 4" castor.
  12. MONARO TORANA reminds me of this car I came across at Wakefield Park a few weekends ago. I'm not really too sure what I make of it... Not my photos.
  13. I don't understand why you would need to reshape the new floors. Use butt welds. If you use lap joins you'll just encourage rust. I trimmed my new floors then laid them over the old ones and marked out a cut line. I cut the old floor out with a thin cut-off wheel in an angle grinder and snips. I then positioned the new floor and welded it in position. I then added new rails. I did it on a rotisserie but it shouldn't be any different welding from inside the cabin.
