Re: 3rd/Third Gear problem M/T

Mine does the same thing, and pretty well has since I bought it. (It has ~210k km on the clock, and I bought it with ~166k on it.) If it doesn't go in the first time, I either push harder, or leave it in neutral then let the clutch out and in again. Seems to work OK. Although, thinking about it, it ...

Re: VIC - Spotted Thread

I don't recall seeing anyone matching that description. However, I view shopping as a necessary evil and get it over and done with as quickly as possible. It's more than likely I walked right past you.

Re: VIC - Spotted Thread

Was wondering if it was you that I parked next to... The scary part is that I was wandering around the Coles buying food as well.

Except I'm a fast stalker, as I was in, shopped and gone before you got back to your car. *grin*

Re: Vic meet up end of April 2018

Thanks for organising things, Mooman. It's good to put faces to names and to talk as long as we did over so many topics.

Hopefully the next time someone kicks off a meet, there will be more people present.

Re: Vic meet up end of April 2018

That's a better time for most people, I think. I'll do my best to get there. As an aside, do you have an agenda for the meet? Are there specific things you want to discuss? It's all well and good to want to grow the club again, but there needs to be some sort of direction (and a person to drive it)....

$89 for a leather bucket seat? That can't be right.

Seriously tempting, as leather seats are so damned comfortable.

Yep, plenty of CJs around there, including a very sweet white RA Sportback I've seen at the Lynbrook shops a couple of times.

Re: CVT is sh*t

Plus with an auto you can change 'gears' mid corner and not have the worry of coordinating arms and legs and just concentrate on taking the turn, and with hills if you get it wrong there is no risk of 'bogging down' when you have to down shift all in all fool proof. Just to play "Devil's Advoc...

Also couldn't help but notice the Gundam behind the trees in the background of the example picture! That's the Gundam Cafe in Odaiba, Tokyo - the only "full size" Gundam statue in existence. If you want to see if, better get your skates on - they're taking it down from March 5th. (Yes, it...

Re: Factory look DRLs for VRX with Fog Lights

Long time between posts, but finally installed the DRLs today. The don't look too bad at all, especially with the chrome repainted with satin black.

In anyone's interested, I ran the white (LED brightness control) wire into the fusebox and tapped it into one of the headlight fuses.
