Thought I’d revive this thread with a few bits. I’ve done pretty well with getting what I want with Ruby Scoo so far.
And as for that touring wagon in the first post, the guy offered it to me for $300 or something but I turned it down as I’d just got the brumby. Spewing I could take it on - and I swear I saw it in one of the pick a part style yards. The thing was full grandma spec - so clean. I almost cried!! Actually I did on the inside!
My current wants:
- an operational engine for my RS so I can get it on club plates and start enjoying it rather than just looking at it!
- sort the small niggling rust issues in the brumby. Nothing serious, just annoying. Then respray it the same colour as the new XV red
For Ruby Scoo it’s rebuilding the OBX front LSD - try making it tighter (you could/should put time into tidying these up right out of the factory. The kit is about $35 from the states and apparently is pretty simple to do), changing my fifth ratio from the current 0.87 to an 0.83 or 0.81 if either of those are available (I need to do my research). The original 0.78 is too low for what I want and I reckon the EJ22 won’t do so well when on tour while commuting. 5 stud conversion. Just need time!
Oh, and a new to me tradies roof rack would be sweet too.
