Hi all, joining back up after about a decade, because I just bought a 1991 Vr4 auto. Formerly I was 91Vr4Evolution.

I will a throw some pics up a bit later.

Now, does anyone know of a parts outlet will ship to New Zealand, as I would like to do a 5 lug swap. I see that Performance Partout has the parts I'm after but it doesn't look like they ship internationally.

Thanks, Mike.

Hi Mike, I am also in NZ.
The best shipping method I have used by far is NZPost’s “YouShop” service. See their website. it gives you a local address in the US, England and China they then forward it to your NZ address.

It is cheaper than USPS and you have insurance and shipping speed options. They also can do oversized items from the US. (Like sway bars)

Totally eliminates the need to find people who ship internationally.

Cheers
Andrew

Wow, haven’t seen that name in a while! Welcome back Mike.
If you message Nathan I’m sure he would work something out for you.
Try looking for him on Facebook too. A complete 5 lug swap just sold in Brisbane I think 😩

Thanks guys, yes it's been a while.

I have spent the last few days going over the car and fixing little things as I can. So far I have:

Replaced the left rear window rubber as it had become deformed, replaced the right hood hinge as the pin had worn out, replaced the rear hood seal as it had been torn, replaced one window toggle switch as it would only work one way, replaced the right front tie-rod end, bled the brakes, did a temporary bodge to the shifter pivot to replace the bushes which had turned to dust, replaced the console lid vibration isolating rubbers with 5/16th blind grommets, replaced the hood strut bush with a grommet (thanks Turbo Tom).

Here's a few photos. Sorry for rotation of the last three, I don't have an editor on my tablet.

Just took them off for photos, it's currently on hold due to failed WOF, but I'm working my way through the issues. Exhaust is the biggie, original and full of holes. Nothing off the shelf in NZ from what I can see, but Autobend do a "Rage" 3" in mild steel for the E1-3, which might be useable if I rotate and alter the muffler section. It uses a 3" fart cannon, and I'd rather keep the twin outlet look though. A 2.5" system would probably be nicer and quieter. I also want to pull the shocks out and check them, as I have noticed the bump stops are gone on the front. I think it's lowered, possibly on King Springs, which have been sprayed black as I have noticed some specs of yellow.
