  1. Funny/Weird/Unusual names

    i know as cliche as it sounds i went to school with a Michael Hunt (Mike hunt) and the local radio news reader afew years ago had the name Jo King i though it must of been a joke for ages till the had some staff thing in the local paper
  2. yeah i was the main full time delivery driver i basically lived in the car, far cry from what is becoming now though
  3. a few years ago i was using my 180 as a daily/ pizza delivery car and i put 180,000km in a year, but now its just a weekender and its probably only seen 5000km in the last year (not to mention having no motor for the last 3 months)

  9. Mounting front bar 180sx

    yeah i am still running the front reo bar and i have also managed to get another 2 bolts in either side my biggest problem is the flex i get out of the guards, i might tr making up some heavier duty braces for the and see how it goes.
  10. I have just put a vertex style kit on my 180 and have found the front bar seems a bit loose, and the other night i hit a steep driveway and the popped drivers side front guard up ,as it pulled the front 2 bolts through. I have it mounted with 2 bolts each side from the guard to the bar, 2 on the front radiator support and 2 in the wheel well from the guard to the wing of the front bar. i still have the brace from the bottom of the front guards to the chassis as well. My question is are there any other brackets i could make up to give it a bit better strength ? Or any other tips that may help ? Also a picture of the bar to give you an idea.
  11. holy coldness.. man the lowest we've had here was 7 degrees a few months ago.. and i was cold then.. screw -2 man.. i would have stayed in bed forever with the heater on Wow that's really not that bad its 8 degrees here today and that the warmest day all week the rest have been about 4 or below

  13. The smartest overall Job

    well i guess along the lines that you are talking i think the job im in covers a fair bit. Im a workshop/sales manager for a ute body manufacturing company. So on one side of the job i do retail sales, marketing, account keeping, ordering etc While the other side of the job is staff management, design , a small amount of manufacturing and fitting accessories. I am also a qualified accessory fitter which means i oversee and help fit trays and bull bars etc
