    Other option is we go halves in a sandblaster Apparently using garnet as a blasting material won't damage the alloy.

    Pigs arse.

    paint stripper works alot better if you wrap it in glad wrap to stop the volatiles boiling off.

    Don't paint strip inside the turbines - you need to get every single bit of stripper out of there before you prime/paint. Just hit those areas with green Scotchbrite instead.

    Will give that a go.

    Spent some more time with the paint stripper on Saturday and made some good progress. Another hour or so with the paint stripper & a scotch brite pad and they should be ready to paint. Yeeaaahhh already paint stripped inside the turbines, I gurney'd the shit out of them after though so they should be clean (plus will brake clean them before paint).

    Scotch brite can be pretty savage on the wheel with a heavy hand, pretty much used it for very light paint removal then hit it with the scraper and some more stripper.
    Pretty much done 1x wheel, just needs the centre hit again with some stripper and it should be good for painting. The corrosion you can see on this wheel, does it need to be removed before painting or it makes no difference?

    No soda blaster, just acid bath. Already asked him. It will only remove grease etc, won't get rid of paint.

    That's who got me my set Mine were a bit cheaper though, obviously needing paint....

    If you're after a similar style DJ, these are going fairly cheap - http://page13.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/j...ion/r176448762

    Perhaps I need an exhaust to match the wheels?


    lol

    Before:


    After:


    Unfortunately the windscreen was broken on removal :< Mob in QLD has one, just waiting to see if old mate can get one locally.

    Will spend a week with Dneg prepping this thing for Toyota Nationals. The wiring is a mess so needs to be fixed (may as well sort it while the dash is out). Looking at running one of these instead of a cluster of gauges - http://1gauge.com.au/

    Should have it back by the end of the month so plenty of time to get it running.

    I think it's white sikaflex (or fibreglass) to smooth it out.

    Yeah hahaha. It's all plated & welded in, with seam filler over the welds & to fill in the gaps (same stuff they use on cars i.e where the outer door skin meets the inner, they put seam filler over it).

    Some more progress from rust repair man:



    That's probably the worst of it. Windscreen will go back shortly, waiting to hear if the windscreen guy can source one. Hoping to have it back in the next few weeks.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    Edit : Does it need to be fixed before then? Can you just push the flap back down, put a guard back on it and drive it for the weekend?

    It doesn't run, needs a heap of work (turbo, exhaust, fix engine loom, re-wire some of the interior etc) + the interior put back in. I have a back up car so no big deal, just would be nice to get this one going in time

    Wheels are almost done:


    Just need a little paint brush to do the 'Turbina-S' in red.

    Ordered one of these with a wideband -https://www.justraceparts.com.au/auto-gauges/digital-multi-gauge

    Should keep the interior a bit cleaner. If it works well I might stick one in my KE70 too.
