Harry,
How did you manage to get hold of Jon at TRE before? I seriously have nothing against the guy, he has been held up with delays on delivery of the Cusco Diff and that was not his fault. But now I just want to get the TRE box done so that I can get this stuff shipped over here and get going on the rebuild. His voicemail is full and both Al and I have sent long e-mails requesting specific work and information for payment and all we get back is a "Thanks Jon"

You don't have a cell number do you?

Paul.

Jealous...

No, I was asking why he was giving up on having a nice GVR4.

You can no longer quote previous threads, if you haven't noticed.

Harry,
Thanks. Jon got back to me, he says the gearbox should be done next week. I think I'm about done on the parts ... a few things to chase up, like the intercooler setup, getting my poly bushes to Al so he can fix up and clean up the 4 bolt rear and install the rear diff ... and then I'm pretty much ready to ship.

Paul.

Compomotive MOs 18 x 8, offset can't remember exactly (it's on their site and it was in the 35-38 ballpark area) ... not light about 26 lbs each I believe but pretty much guaranteed not to break. I thought about Magnesium Rims I would of taking Als rims at that price if I'd realized he was selling them but I couldn't justify the price tag of the TE37 Mags much as I adored them. The TE37 Mags are literally HALF the weight of these and still the same dimensions which is just unbelievable.

I'm sure for the price the quality would have been awesome but I've heard a lot of issues with Mag Rims on anything other than perfect asphalt and we don't get much of that in Hong Kong. One thing I have learnt about going fast on the roads here is that you need ground clearance, shocks with plenty of travel and strong rims. With these mods alone you can beat just about any car of equivalent performance to your own because the race shocked, lowered and fancy japanese rim brigade brake, slow down and go over every speed hump, pothole, ramp and crack in the pavement at obscenely slow speeds. If you can just keep going you can close them down no trouble.

Hey Paul,

I take it you have the body all stripped back and it's getting a respray too?

Do you have any photos of that part of the build at all? Are you sticking with the stock Jspec kit?

At this point, the only disappointment would be to scrap this project which I'm pretty sure won't happen.

I'm already disappointed! I'm disappointed that I'm not a cop on the take to be able to afford a build like this.

You mentioned somewhere on page xx of xxx something about use for work. Do you intend to use this thing for po-po work?

I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands.

I wouldn't worry too much about Paul pulling you over, unless Alex sources him some retractable pontoons and a stern drive...
