  1. Past hour
  2. Yep - LSD it was I smelt for a week Can still taste it almost 30 years later when I think about it
  3. Na no hydramat yet, Yeah bigger turbo coming soon, cooling system is fixed and no more header tank. Need to sort out what I'm going to do with the gearbox, it's not shifting up from 1st sometimes and has a flare into 4th Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

  5. Day two at the gym - tick!
  6. I don't understand - WHY does diff oil smell so bad? Gun oil = Good smell Diff oil = Oh god get that sh*t off me smell
  7. Today
  8. Yea I think it might be the way to go. Just bite the bullet and accept that its the best to get the wire from ๐Ÿคฃ
  9. Be careful Big difference in cable material. You want tinned copper not CCA. 2G from Jaycar $17. Just buy that at least you know its the correct stuff. Its only about $100
  10. Replacing 20yo+ fine-spline diff centre/oil in the Torana - can still smell it.
  11. Getting there!! I've found the 0 Gauge wires in my research but not been able to find the 2 Gauge. For my setup 0 gauge wire is way overkill, not to mention an b$@tch to install
  12. Ooops - didn't read More like these? https://www.amazon.com.au/s?k=KnuKonceptz&ref=bl_dp_s_web_0 https://www.amazon.com.au/KnuKonceptz-Kolossus-Gauge-Amplifier-Installation/dp/B005CIJBKK/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=KnuKonceptz&qid=1558587317&s=gateway&sr=8-2
  13. If I were doing the speaker wire sure, not quite sure it'd work as power wire though ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. These any good? https://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/speaker-wire.htm Have used Cable Chick for other cabling needs with no issues
  15. well im farked off that im getting farked on by stupid government cawks. That better?
  16. Filthiest day at work - dropping the starter motors out of Cummins powered Kenworths. Filthiest day at home - probs fitting up power steering to my old XT ute. Filthiest evening.....
  17. two amps, will be running around 1500W combined output. I've done many installs for car systems and I get pretty pedantic about it. They've all been family and friends cars with relatively low budget builds. So buying the "amp wiring kits" was always fine. Mine however is gonna be a bit different and I want to it right. I've done the calculations, and you're right. 4 gauge in theory would work for my system but its on the edge. To be safe I'm going 2 or 1 gauge wire to a Power Distribution block and splitting it from there in the boot area to 4 gauge for each amp. Got a main fuse going in the engine bay, and 2 more fuses for each amp. Being fairly high end amps, the power to them needs to be "clean". OFC wire for this is the way to go.
  18. When I was doing my HepRenTichip we had to wire up an extra switch for the bucket on an SAPN (power network) truck.... Dirtiest I ever came home... until I started dating J@
  19. have never bought Oxygen-Free-Copper cables; so I wouldn't be able to help, specifically... but if you're not going to be running a ridiculous amount of amps for a long period of time (e.g. the heat factor etc in the wiring), I don't think it's worth purchasing it at all, over conventional amp power wires. I think 2 gauge is more than enough and hard enough to install, let alone 0 gauge which I've installed a couple of times, too... my sound system is already too loud in my car for reasonably long periods of listening (more than 6min) and it's only on 4 gauge power wiring
  20. Hey all, Prepping the rig for a fairly big audio upgrade. Bought subs already, got the kayhan audio icc (mainly for its RCA outputs and awesome snr, thd values). Will be getting alpine type r speakers all round, amps still tbd as I'm negotiating price deals on them. Anyway, that's not the point of this thread. I am looking into getting some wire for the install, specifically 2 gauge and 4 gauge OFC wire. Really struggling to source this wire from aus at decent prices. Wondering if anyone here can help out or know of any place to get power wire from? Pls do not mention jaycar, I know they sell it but its not the best and the price is a little steep. Cheers all!
  21. Used to be an auto spark, worked on lotsa stock floats.....got shat on fixing those stinkin piles a lot๐Ÿš› ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ’ฉ(emojis for clarity)
  22. I'm feeling really pissed on?
  23. No, not really - it's old, low res and power hungry. TBH I don't even know if it will be any good lit up as it will shine upwards - may end up being useful as a tracing table or just as a cool but completely useless project. I figure at worst, it'll be a nice solid smooth heavy desktop space.
  24. do you actually plan to use the plasma as a screen as well as a desk?
  25. Just once I wanna hear someone be like.... Iโ€™m in a farrked on mood today.... like itโ€™s that sh*t Iโ€™m not even farrked off im farrked on!!! Kinda like being sh*t on... but with farrk brain me work good today not much so
