    Autotek is still going, rang them last year trying to get new MOMO centre caps badges.
    No longer available.

    I remember Brocky doing a burnout at Summernats in the Autotek "Beast" VS ute. It ran like shit.
    It had 20in MOMO Status rims.

    The utes still around, a mate resprayed the front of it/did some touch ups prior to it going to summernats again. This wouldve been, fuck, 3 or 4 years ago? Reckons it looked pretty sad/dodge, bloke that had it was just interested in doing burnouts in it.

    Cant believe Autotek is still around though, tried using their website the other day its fucking shambles. Are they still Momo distributors?

    *ninja edit* if you need caps, these might be worth grabbing? Also note non chrome [you could have two sets!!! ]

    Whoa the badges on those caps are in worse condition than mine. I have to very carefully peel mine off the caps before paint, the badge is thin metal held on with double sided tape and theyre very easy to bend.
    If they were nearby id buy them for spares.

    Man, I get a bit of sentimentality flashback to scommo days seeing this. Can definitely appreciate the feelings considering the story with this one. Considering the shit going on in yours at the moment, good to see some autophilia helping you through.

    Yep it's definately a part of me now, may aswell treat it nice.

    Painter came around today to inspect and give a proper quote.
    It's all go. He doesn't want to do a half assed job, so it will be a doors off and windows out thorough job.
    He appreciates the ute for what it is and it's rarity, and reckons his boys will be excited to work on it rather than the mundane minor repairs they normally do. All of that fills me with confidence.

    So now it's time for me to strip it down and trailer it to him.
    Should come out good, definately something to look forward to.

    Grab a set of steelies from the wreckers (if you don't have any already) if you want to keep the white wheels white.

    Great to hear it's getting painted too.

    Ha yeah gotta be careful on here, eagle eyed people can pick out the most minor of faults in what you're doing. Can't see the tow car in that pic, which is not rated to tow this the 5 minutes up the road at 50km/h tomorrow.

    Something about that photo makes me really want to see it with flat front guards made up so it looks similar to an old FJ40 cruiser.

    Lol Uterod. It's already ugly enough.

    Currently parked inside the panel shop, he's hoping to have it in primer next week! He's super keen to get onto it and see it done, was busting my balls to get it down there all week. Holy fuck!

    Yeah, need the patience of a Saint especially once you've colour-matched them.

    Was invited in to check on progress this arvo. It's a bit behind due to staff shortages, but doesn't bother me in the slightest. There were 3 working on it when i got there.
    Body is all straight, minimal bog used. It had no bog in the metalwork anywhere before, they were impressed with that. Fibreglass was nearly finished being repaired as can be seen in the background.
    All coming along very nicely, more than happy.





    Dropped the Recaro seats off at the trimmer last week to be refurbished, the cushions were split on the side bolsters under the trim, they should be done in a week or two.
    Bought some new tail lights, regular style instead of the clear and tinted ones i'd run previously.
    All slowly coming together, cant wait to see it done.

    Yes they would. I've been looking at all sorts of wheels, but it would be wrong not to fit the MOMO's. I'm going to have to spend the cash and get them cleaned up. Been eyeing off new centre caps on Ebay, bit of money and they're in the USA. So easy to spend imaginary money on the internet, so many good parts available.

    If you can get centre caps then definitely use the momos!

    Righto, so i'm sitting bored on the lounge, looking at the pile of bills for rego and insurance that is due in one month for the Suzuki Swift daily and thinking "fuck that's a lot of money". Now spending $300+ on centre caps starts to feel a little silly.

    Despite the previous picture showing the MOMO's with no caps, i actually do have them. It's just that the centre badges were looking really ugly, and the only way to get replacements is to buy entire caps from the US. So i had a closer inspection, and it appeared that the discolouration on the badges was actually contamination underneath a protective clear coat. So i carefully peeled the metal badges off and removed the clear coat with some steel wool, thinners and some elbow grease. And it worked! The process left some fine scratches, i did give them a very quick half assed hit with some Autosol metal polish on a rag which helped, but they'l probably need a buff.

    Anyways, saved some cash there for more important things. Like getting the fucking chrome off the rims and getting them painted.
    If anyone knows a cheap way to remove the chrome myself, i'm all ears. I'm scared of what it will cost to pay somebody else to do it, but it may come down to that.


    Shitty looking badges. Very over complicated too, with lots of parts that will need gluing back together.




    One badge rubbed back and roughly polished.




    2 badges done. Nearly passed out from thinners fumes. Went inside.




    Fitted to one of the "Chromeeeze"
