Long Description:Wanted a V8 all of a sudden so i sold the BT50 and bought this..... now i want a 4x4 again... XR ute over terry chassis anyone?

so far the only product that has made it to almost sellable state... the rest are just moulds taking up space, i really need a shed

heres some of my work, the small things are actually harder to make than the larger things like bonnets and tailgates but they cost more so its a catch 22....



also in the process of making a 3" mould.... have a guess .... carbon exhaust! YEP! the prototype will actually be set alight and another in the oven at 220 degrees for a few hours.... all this in 2 days... wish me luck

douglas / aka riverside gardens ...... im working on a lot of things, but yeah send me a pm or so with what you want and ill add it to the list of things to make, i will require the original part for roughly 3 days, but there may be a wait until i pick up some new machinary and equipment next weekend

let me know where i can get a bucket load (we are talking tonnes) of some sort of clay that sets hard with a catalyst or something and we can even talk a deal.... or trade

Haha I'll be lucky if my car is back today to be able to race this saturday. Either way I am working and the motor still needs some more running in before heading to the track though. Do post up some timeslips though, surely you should make the 14 second zone.

just a bo peep at the tsv drags website, it says that there is a "drag racing" event on this weekend, so probably $65 entry fee. i was thinking of giving the gti a go but not for $65 bucks......

Street meets are what you want dude, they're only $25 to race. And at proper meets if you get knocked out then that's it night over.
