Hi
Thought I'd share a few pics of the new car.
Flew to Melbourne to get it and after a few initial hiccups and a couple of beery stops at mates places got it home to the far north coast of NSW trouble free.
To buy it with rego it needed to have a current road worthy.done down there which needed a wheel bearing, new external belts, rocker cover gasket and some welding done on exhaust...and as I was doing this via phone calls I got a bit reamed..but all good.
It developed lifter noise about 5 kms from home...but fresh oil fixed that thankfully ..and now its got an oil leak from crank seal...my Mechanic is doing it in a couple of days for a couple of hundred so no biggy.(will also do water pump and remove tensioner spring as advised on another thread on here)
All in all its in really good nick and interior is great and has been obviously re uphosltered.
Its had suspension work done (awesome through the bends).. exhaust work and has apparently been chipped??
I don't think its running to full potential..laggy down low..but picks up after about 3000 rpm..will be dealing with that and asking advice after blue slip and NSW rego is sorted.
