September 2018: Sooooo the new blue car is gone. I did a deal with a mate which worked for both of us. I sold him the blue car, got my money back and ended up with these two.

Basically the black car is the same as the current car, just black. It's also VERY rough cosmetically wise.

The Daihatsu will be used for parts / manual swap for my little one. The black car won't be here for long, if anything it'll be gone before the end of the week.

Mechanically the car is actually in good shape with 200od thousand kms on the clock. It also had a neat golfer radiator.

That dihatsu looks old school, what age is it as your sig says “00” but it looks older the that!

December 2018: Much to my surprise I've only done 4,800km's in my car in the last 13 months meaning that it's been that long since I've done my last service. So fairly overdue. I've found out my oil filter has actually been leaking, which has been flicking oil onto the drivers side header. Anyway, popped the car up on stands.

Quick clean of the plug with a new washer.

While the car was running a little low from the leak I've always been pretty good at keeping it topped up anyway. Hopefully no damage. The oil that came out looked ok.
 
I've got to be honest, lately I've been pretty non interested in the car. I haven't felt the way I've felt for it in the past. It's pretty likely 2019 will be my last year with it. I've learned a lot and enjoyed it but it's never felt like a forever car.
 
However, there is a very big round of things ready to happen to the car, I've just been gathering parts for the last 6 months, but after that the big mods anyway will likely stop, or maybe they won't, time will tell. So this is what's now waiting to go on the car.

December 2018: The car was feeling great after the service so I thought I'd take it on a no destination drive. I ended driving around for like almost 5 hours. Remember when I said I wasn't feeling the same about the car, well, after a drive I felt the way I used to feel. God this car is amazing to drive!
 
Anyway, here are some pics from the trip.

Nice pics.

 

 

 

Looking at the engine shots, you may have an oil cooler leak.

 

Needs a new O ring between cooler and upper oil pan. Common issue.


If I told you I was a compulsive liar, would you believe me?

Cheers man. It doesn't make sense. I think I'll chuck that on my list!

 

January 2019: Happy New Year everyone! My brother and I took the advantage of a quiet early morning today to take the wagon and my bike out for a cruise around the Royal National Park. I haven't given the car a real corner fang for a while, even with a wacky rear alignment it handled like it was on rails. I really see why people say what a difference a rear swaybar can make. I can't wait to take it around again when all the new goodies are on.
