We're back, quick post some updates before it disappears again.

 

After two weeks, I was afraid it was gone for good this time

That round one looks like a good buy.  I'll probably go with that.  Now I just need to figure out how to plumb it to the 2J.  Seeing as most of that is deleted at the moment.  😂

Brian is a glutton for punishment. Rumor has it, the JZXP server is now on a off-grid triplicate power supply primarily fueled by roadrunners on a treadmill, backed up to a tumbleweed burning hydroelectric furnace, and lastly a 70 year old 1 ton GMC dump truck converted to permanent PTO > generator. 

Change my mind.

I believe it.  Now JZXP is prepared to survive the assimilation of all message boards into Facebook, the forced electrification of our personal transportation, Chinese mainland invasion and following inevitable nuclear holocaust

R1 came in two styles one like the ducati and one like this. the below link is my fav due to size/style. very simple

I ended up picking one up like this for about $20US.  It just arrived a couple of days ago.  Now to get it plumbed in.

 Small update.

Rear strut bushes changed and fixed to suit. the rear end now in. found out driver wheel bearing is seized, axles boots need replacing and as you can see the axles look to be on the upward angle at strut full highet nothing dramatic and hopefully raising the diff mount will correct this issue.

had issues with the front end, first being LCA's being a lot longer than i needed but the main issue was ball joints being stuffed and unable to bolt coils/knuckles in etc. caster arm are about 100mm too short so need to fabricate. but what shitted me the most was using mate for fabrication. awesome guy etc but I wanted the front end to be able to bolt in AE86 stuff and have no issues, instead, he made the AE86 stuff fit the X3 witch meant drilling some very expensive Cusco items. it's done now, just annoying and why I will prob not go this route with other cars.

So what is left? well remove it all, paint it all including the body and get what I need to be rebuilt. so it will be finished rolling/steering wise. the only major concern after this is the steering shaft and extractors everything else is essentially off the shelf and little fabrication items. oh and wheels to suit.


with a daughter, it has been really hard as after 7 pm im bugged and my weekends are spent with my daughter doing things. so i do regret not taking advantage of doing things before baby. but I will make it work.

I totally understand the doing things before baby bit.  Especially when I was sitting at home for a month or two during quarantine not working and waiting the last couple of months for a baby to pop out.

I am gonna shoot you a message I want to ask a question about the front end.

Yeah, my daughter was born almost 11 months ago to the day, so she is a COVID baby, and was born during lockdown here in Australia.

Mine just turned 9 months old three days ago.  Seeing as he started the manufacturing process about two months before anyone in China had ever heard of Covid I wouldn't call him a covid baby.  But he has definitely started life in the thick of it.  Was wild going to the hospital in the middle of everything.  Really sucked that my wife had tickets to fly to Japan to have the baby set to depart three months before the due date.  But her flight was cancelled.  So we suddenly had to start making plans to do everything here.

Yeah, while Australia was pretty good with COVID, we had to be isolated to the baby ward. im lucky and I have private health cover for my family so it was like a holiday stay. but stupid me did not understand/register when i was packing clothes i just packed clothes to suit people coming to see the baby, not the consent 36c degrees or what ever it was and no clothes to sleep in or wear other than jeans and tee's 

been good after though, even though we had to wear masks etc and was locked down to a 5km radius for the start. i have done my best to show her more then just the house. also helps living on 32 acers.
