Re: The Ticky Returns

Those white wheels are the ones he uses for the track I'm pretty sure. Well done Kerry, shame you can't come to heathcote I really wanted to check out the car and race you again with your new mods. Maybe next time buddy!

Re: The Ticky Returns

The white ones are in the shed, the tyres are getting low.
no major dramas, just getting everything aligned is the biggest pain, with consistent gaps.

I must get a wheel alignment in the next few days but.

Ian are you still looking for a reasonably cheap ED XR?
NO, Not mine.

Re: The Ticky Returns

Ian send me an email, so i can send you some detail.

Rob well all up, i had to get a new bonnet front bar, XR grill, headlights, Radiator, Condensor, Support panel, and all the little bits to go with that lot.

The bonnet, guards bars(he did the rear aswell), right rear 1/4(removed the dent), and the Support panel and grill got painted.
The colour match is near perfect, The paint is PPG so its quality gear.
It would want to be for $280 a litre.
