  1. Thanks to the power of Instagram I've actually found where she works, so I'll be adding an attachment order to her pay once this whole lockdown thing is done with Sent from my SM-G980F using Tapatalk
  2. Sounds like a plan! As long as they can find her Sent from my SM-G980F using Tapatalk
  3. Don't suppose they're around the bay of plenty area? Sent from my SM-G980F using Tapatalk
  4. In the end she was told she owes me $3350 and she has done a runner, I'm at the point where its really worn me out and I don't know whether its worth continuing to fight for it, its been months now and nothing Sent from my SM-G980F using Tapatalk
  5. Ripped out the whole interior bar the dash, and headliner. Was a smoker's car and I have a car with full interior to swap over anyway so why not. Found some money, a lot of smoke items and some drug paraphernalia. Also found this, it's my drivers seat mount, another thing to fix Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  6. Fit a vf30 as a replacement to the old blown vf24, changed TPS due to a dead spot in the revs, fit the exhaust and took it for a drive around the yard at work. Now to figure out the boost controller issue (just running wastegate pressure so power is very linear) maybe put a fuel pump in it any suggestions on pumps? and take it for a wheel alignment then stick it in the shed to wait for a tune
  7. Got the top mount on today, fixed vac issues, found why it was miss firing, turns out the cam sprockets are different between rev b and d so swapped them, re sort timing, got it running mint. Gave it a rev and smoke everywhere. Turbo doesnt sound good either so that's just another thing I have to replace, fml. It's actually so bad that apart from the exhaust being off it's the only thing preventing me driving it home. Have sorted a VF30 and better top mount just need the funds.

  8. God, where do i start? Tuesday finished work at lunch, parked the car in the empty bay at work and tore the entire front end of the B4 apart, engine, gearbox, front subframe, arms, everything, all out. It took all Wednesday and Thursday swapping over whatever i needed from the Rev D motor to my Rev B motor from my old Legacy while also doing an ST conversion. Worked Friday so no work done on car. Saturday was 2 trips to Te Puke (Roughy an hour from me) to visit Jeremy from Subiedoo Spares to get bits. got the new front subframe all put back together and put engine and gearbox onto it. This morning slid the drivetrain under and lifted into place. fit everything. fit rev D intake and basically got the car running. Runs pretty badly because the top mount isnt on i havent sorted a couple vac lines but runs. Found everything different between the rev B and D bolt ons. Honestly didn't realise how much was actually different between the two engines and if i didnt have some parts already as well as the motor that came out to steal hoses and sensors from this wouldn't have been possible. @A_J_T I cant thank you enough. You've been great dealing with my random texts to explain the ST swap to me. I definitely owe you a beer. Car currently only has a down pipe on and sounds absolutely vicious but cant go on the road till the exhaust, top mount and brakes are sorted so at work it stays. 10/10 would not recommend with the time constraints i had and the fact that work had to be delayed on the car because i couldn't get some parts due to public holidays. However 10/10 would do again. It was fun.
  9. I thought about doing that nut decided to take the high road. Nothing ever gets sorted by doing that but it also seems nothing gets sorted doing it the right way Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  10. Right, so. Not really. Didnt get any money, has to go back to court for a financial assessment however shes moved and hasn't provided an address so until I provide an address the court cant summon her. So at this moment it looks like I'm not going to get anything. You can apply to the court and a couple other places to try and disclose their new address but that's only if they've changed their address officially. It's also more money to do so Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  11. Fit a new fuel filter today in the BE5, since I snapped the pump carrier last night and just got a new one [emoji26]. Seems to have helped with the fuel pressure a little bit. However when I took it around the block to see if it will boost it started cutting, then there was a small bang. Got home and as I pulled in the driveway there was a slight ticking sound. Looked underneath and theres oil on the up pipe. Up pipe has also snapped but with how much oil was flowing. Looks like new motor time [emoji17] fml Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  12. Ordered to pay by the disputes tribunal. I have already printed out an enforcement order application just need to fill it out and send it in but figured I'd talk to my uncle about it first (partner at a law firm). I'll be going and seeing him this weekend hopefully so I'll let you all know what he says Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
  13. Who has been and why? Ive recently been through the system to get payment for my old Legacy that someone rolled. The amount theyve been ordered to pay isnt all that big however they are now refusing to pay and have started threatening me. How did you all get your payment when they refused?
  14. Went and checked this out. The boss man at my local VTNZ said that because its a sedan it cant be reclassified as a 2 seater. Have an update though. I got in contact with a local rust repairer and he said he can fix it for me and do it properly. So today i stripped all the rear seats and parcel tray out ready for him to work his magic on Monday. If anyone has any other BE5 interior that isn't that hideous blue and black leather, lemme know
  15. Not sure, will actually go measure it tomorrow. Has to be 150mm away from the mount. Just looks hacked to pieces and it will need certifying if I weld in a plate. Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk
