This is my First car, bought it back in 2004 for a small sum of $220, and had been sitting in the backyard slowly getting work done to it....

i had rebuilt the engine in at school, and it went well until i smashed it into a culvert less than 24 hours after it being registered, resulting in the X-member, lower arm, strut, stub axel, balljoint (that had just got replaced) either being destroyed or bent....

After getting it back on the road it had a large knocking sound, sounded like bigends or mains, turned out to be the cause of the cam sprocket stripping one row of teeth....Long Story...

SO in went the new engine and box ($150), dosn't fall out of first anymore, and the knocking is gone, but has been replaced with loose tappet...

Then after getting all this in and a bit of new oil and a filter, it was using ALOT of water...So using my "automotive detective skills" worked it back to being the headgasket... So off to Bursons with my handydandy Discount card, got the Gasket, drove home and started to remove the head....
When i pulled the head off Number 4 had water sitting in the dish of the Super shiny piston... put it all back together, and yeah its all good now, except it blows abit of smoke occasionally on start-ups....


I get back from The Falls Festival, look in my car....i have a cd player... Pioneer unit, with some 50w lanco (or somethings) in my speaker boxes out of my room...

anyway.. skipping forward.. i got to work, with the help of dad to install some 80w 2way $9.99 autobarn specials into the bootlid skin... so out comes the MDF and the jigsaw... bit of magic and i now have speakers in the back.... it was missing sounded ok, but needed more, luckly i had some clarion 4", out came the mdf and the jigsaw again, few hours work later a now have new kickpanels and speakers and KAPOW!!! some sound up front!! in goes some Kanye West and out come the beats..
Get photos later
