The brumby rolls again!
Posted 12 August 2007 - 03:33 PM
My brumby has been off the road since a woman crashed into it last June.
I had to find a new door and front guard (difficult in New Zealand for gen1) and then panelbeat, fill and spray them.
I also had to weld a few patches around the car, as the rust spots were starting to spread and they are VERY tough on rust here.
I finally got all the work done and took it in for it's warrant of fitness test, and it sailed through.
I already have a road trip planned in about a weeks time, so it's a relief to say the least.
Pics will follow...

Yesterday I swapped heaters for one that works (big mish) and installed an old but good component cassette stereo, for oldschool cool.
Today I changed the brake fluid and drained and replaced the gearbox oil, adding a bottle of snake oil. The bad synchro on 1-2 now works a lot better. This little soob is running better than it has in years.
Toimorrow I'm driving on a ferry for a south island trip. Will drive down the east coast to christchurch then over the mountains to the west coast and up. should be awesome, it's my first road trip in ages.
After that I've got a rear LSD to throw on, some big valve heads I'm slowly porting and a nice weber carb off a 2 litre fiat twincam engine. Should go pretty good after that.
