  1. Drilling out knuckles

    Expanding a hole is never going to work well with a normal twist drill, as it is not cutting on its indented surface ( i assume you are expanding ) if you get a cobalt drill bit it may last you a bit longer, use cutting fluid, slow speed and take your time!
  2. someone should buy these!! you would be the coolest guy in town
  3. I am selling the wheels off my very long term project because i want different ones These are baller af rims! super deep dish! $3500 a little negotiable.. http://www.ebay.com....984.m1555.l2649
  4. S1480 widebody build.....

    SOOOO nearly 2 years after my last post!!!!!! I have something decent to show everyone, thats if silvia's/180's are even cool anymore....haha As i said in my last post it sat.....and sat.....and sat around at a very good mate on mine's panel shop, occasionally getting little bits of work done, until one day i sent a mms of a light grey s14a to my mate with a smiley face :-) A few hours later i received a pic back of my damaged door sil cut out!! Turns out he took the pic as a hint!!! I used to drop by his work quite frequently as we lived very close to each other in Albury. I moved back to Melbourne at the start of this year so i couldn't just pop in for a look :-( I kept getting pics of little bits that he had done and within 2 months my 180 had received more work than it has the last 2 years, which was very exiting. Anyway enough talk, here are some of the progress shots so far, if you read the whole build thread (which will take you a whole 3 minutes....haha) you will see a few changes....which im wrapped with!!!! All the parts and car are currently in epoxy primer, still a bit of work to get the guards and that straight, but its come a long way :-)
  5. Yeah polished aluminium looks sweet, if you polish it and don't clear it, it stains easier from brake dust and water etc and you will have to redo it over and over. If you clear it you can give them a clean and they will look like new again, just stay away from the gutters
  6. If you going to clear coat it, por15 make a special clear for aluminium and maybe other metals, it adheres to the ally better than 2pak so will be less likely to chip or peel Hope that kelps
