Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Kudo's to funwithmonkeys build. Grabbing a couple thoughts. On his offset BMC, the question was posed about the ratio on the pivot. Is there an advantage 'created' if you were to use a larger bore BMC, with the 'correct' pivot ratio? Can someone do that math for us? This seems like THE way to go whe...

Re: FS: Street Legal 1972 4-door 510 EFI L18 Tarmac Rally Ca

I admit, that at first glance, I balked at $16.5K, but after reading the entire ad, this is a DEAL. For the right buyer, they can't do better. Best of luck with the sale.

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Well, as is the norm, I am on the other side of the planet, again. Back to Mumbai for reliability mods/service bulletins on the plastic-fantastic. They have 18 of them, and we just finished the one I spent a month working on last year. Once its back in service, it will be they're 'cleanest dirty shi...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Have spent a lot of the Xmas break getting a bunch of stuff handled around the house and shop. Man, is the wife mad at the number of hours I've spent out there, but, it is NICE getting out there and spending some real time getting things handled. I've put myself in the "if you touch it, you put it w...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

I'd like to think I did find a good home. The Rx2 was my first car, and I was its second owner. I had it for 30 years! The new owner is excited, and the Rx2 is his dream car. Add to that he's from New Zealand, and I like the chances of the car's future. The Rx4 will be on the back burner(not like it...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Well, it's official- I am (almost) rotary Mazda free. I have sold the Rx2 and Rx7, and all the associated parts. Border crossing went as smooth as it could have. Rx4 couldn't go yet, because I have yet to go through the process of the State Patrol inspection, and application for the title. No 'owner...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but if anyone is from the states is selling a car to someone in Canada, I have just gone through the process to be able to do so. AESDirect account, ($200, get an IRS tax ID, take a semi difficult quiz, etc) and a contact at the Lynden border crossin...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Would be my first guess....

I see no end to my travel opportunities, until I decide its time to stop. Going to be a struggle having a place built from the other side of the world. I'm going to have to really screen my builder when that time comes.....

Re: 1971 Red 510 "Jessie"

No disrespect intended or implied to Ratsun, but your car is very clean and 'practical' looking, and many of the Ratsun projects lean more toward the 'unfinished'/patina/rust-as-a-finish, squatted suspension look. Thats not a bad thing, if thats the look/style you want. You'll get tons of very good ...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Scheduled to fly home on 12/4.... As India is the way it is, 'alterations' to the plan had to be made. This aircraft has some serious issues, mostly due to the airlines treatment of it while it's sat, and the lack of care that entails. I believe the FAA is here, but the level of their inspection reg...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

India.... Wow. Everyone should experience this place, if only to get a greater appreciation of their own situation. If you search Air India 787, you'll see they are getting beat up in the media, since it is a state funded airline, and questions are being raised about their ability to function effect...

Re: Lift is in, car in air...

Back from Michigan on 10/14. Leaving for India on 11/9. Not sure of a return date. 787 stuff... India isn't what you call...efficient. On a automotive note, bought the wife the big dumb SUV, a Yukon Denali, to replace her aging 540iT. Nice rig. Also bought a 2004 Honda Civic EX 4 door/5 speed with a...

Re: The Greg Terry Memorial Build

Yikes!

I applaud your bravery.... I'm pulling for you. Maybe some of that heat absorbing putty material as close as possible to keep the heat down? Just a thought...

Is the paint clearcoated, or a single stage?

Just joking- Few know more about walking away from projects for long periods better than me.

Free bump!
