  1. What Did You Do To Your Car Today?

    Momentarily thought I tore my exhaust open Tuesday jumping a gutter (trying to) Turns out it was the front 2 turbo nuts missing [emoji28] & landing on the exhaust cracked the seal open enough for me to hear it. [emoji106] Just went to do them up now & found a 3rd nut was finger loose [emoji33] good thing I heard it when I did! Saving a photo of this setup so I know how to do them up next time, such a C#%@ of a spot! Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney
  2. Specifically for my FG Turbo turbo ute if someone would be kind enough to measure for me! But if people have specs for other models this post can serve as a repository. Wheel center to guard measurements plus maybe bump-stop to axle measurements for us tray back utes. Been playing with my new Shockworks coilovers (loving them btw!) but my new worksite involves 6 speed humps that I'm scraping bumper & about 1m of sides on, so I've gotta jack the ute back up & I'm wondering what standard ride height actually is since I've always been overweight.

    Went to replace drive shaft coupling I ordered a few weeks ago. Wrong part. Bolt centres don't line up & flange on the crush tube is too big. Now to abuse the ebay seller. Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    This week on Turbo Tradie Life: Pulled exhaust back out to find & patch any leaks & there was only 3 pinholes which is better than I expected. Then painted black for maximum stealth! Went in for quick wheel alignment; needs shimming & one shock is leaking so I'm hunting for an upgraded set 4corners. Also my tails haft coupling is cracking so I'd better swap that out. Contacted ShockWorks but having trouble justifying the 2k even though they look awesome & would probally be great for trying to tame my boatymcboatface of an overweight axle tramping ute. [emoji28] Koni sport adjustable set on eBay for $930 & Tyre shop priced me supply $750 for peddlers gas shocks. Got 100k & 8years out of factory shocks, what's the lifespan of good aftermarket gear? Leaning towards the Koni's atm. Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    Naa never did, Its just become a regular noise that I'm immune to now Also I stripped one of those long bolts super easy ages ago when I put this bracket thingy on & just swapped them out for slightly longer hex bolts Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    Not today. Just a few things over the last couple of weekends but have been too lazy/late for a drinking appointment to post on time. Got my exhaust finished & it's all working micky [emoji108] Will pull it off in a couple weeks to check for any leaks and hit it with some exhaust paint to cover my sh*tty welding [emoji28] Fabricated some fully custom Mudflaps! And installed a 60w 'reversing light' Needless to say I hate both reversing & the dark. Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    Yep spot on! Replaced the 8"muffler that did both pipes with a 6" & 4" on each quiet pipe. Hoping it will end up quieter than what it is currently. Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    Have been working on this since the start of the week. Customised from the axle back with Quad 4" tips & exhaust valve setup. 90% fabricated & tacked together, just waiting for a pair of V-band clamps so I can hopefully weld it up & finish next weekend. 🤞 Back to work tomorrow Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    The hardest part was trying to get wires from the gauges to the dash for power/lighting and to the passenger footwell grommet. I tried to avoid pulling out the icc but ended up doing it anyway. FGmods have a YouTube video on how to. But otherwise it was rather easy with all fittings included & instructions to hook it up. Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    Sunglasses holder is handy and I love the indicator mirrors. Hadn't heard of the self dimming mirror so I might have to find me one [emoji848] Was my mates name & the address is completely wrong anyway lol [emoji23] but you have a good point Sent from my fancy pansy touchy screeny phoney

    Assembled the ebay seats I bought for my brothers 99 Subaru outback. Ordered to my mates place cause it's a Christmas present and the American seller completely butchered the address, so it's lucky it even made it to town. Only the phone number was right! No idea where Wallaby lane came from because it doesn't even exist!
