thats ****ed man!!

i DROVE my vl into this same shop,

was forever handing over money for this & that,

GOT ROYALLY ****ED OVER!

get a call from the fat **** saying "oh hey im driven your to a show & shine"

what the ****!? YOU DO NOT EVER TAKE CUSTOMERS CARS FOR JOY RIDES!

next thing i know the car is 'FINISHED', time for more money to be paid, sigh, then he starts pushing it out of the workshop??

" WTF U DOIN MAN?? "
" oh didnt i tell you? there is metal in the sump, so i didnt put any oil back in it"

i was just blank, got him to fill it up & limped it home.

now after 3-4 months of whatever the **** was going on i dont know, the wiring ( which he was supposed to be "fixing", ended up ****ing out, there is about 4 different circuits all drawing from one 15A fuse, SOME ELECTRICIAN EH!?

my car now misses on a cylinder when cold & blows smoke _ ITS ****ED!!!!

NO RECIEPTS & RIPPED THE **** OFF

MY CAR NOW SITS IN A SHED & I CANT EVEN BARE TO LOOK AT IT!! IT BREAKS MY HEART!!!!

Ye it was Kirk.

Dan, sitting there engineless undecided wat I'm doing, gona have the motor pulled down and checked out n see if anything is salvageable or if it's scrap metal! Also found out last w/e that they'd gone up to 40thou... Why the *** would u by source a virgin bore block and go up from that? Now if the block is damaged its a bin job AGAIN!

I know ur ready this it u have ur lil possy telling u wats being said! I still know ur talking **** about me behind my back! U sir are a dumb rat who's business is surely gona head down the drain soon enuf! Just stick to servicing excels cos u can't organise a built motor for **** let alone do anything else right on any1s car!

Mo I have some engine parts here if your interested. Carillo rods done stuff all, needs pistons with 22mm pin, came out of my old engine, did a few dyno pulls before I broke it, rods are perfect. Got a balanced lightened hardened crank and girdle here too I would probably sell too. I was keeoing all this stuff to build another engine, but, well, it will probably just sit on the shelf and do nothing for years and years anyway.

Cheers jase, but if the motor is a bin job then I won't be putting an RB back in it!

Ppl always whining that I'm not finishing a car so i pay some1 to do it and get royally ***t over! Would I be wrong to give up now? Wasted atleast 10k thru having to redo things..

Financially its smarter to give it up, sell off what you can, and if interested, buy someone elses ex project completed. However, its not even close to as rewarding as building it yourself.

The night I bought my vl, it blew a headgasket, 3 weeks it took the idiot mechanic to fix the head. 3 weeks later, the fly wheel blew up, costing well over 15k to fix it. The list keeps going on and on. I should have not wasted the money on fixing it after the fly wheel blew up, but I woudnt know half the people I do if I dint have that car, most of them are very good friends now.s hard man, and its hell dis heartening, but thats performance cars, when its bad its the worst, when its good, its the best thing in the world.

Good luck man, no one would judge you for giving up given the circumstances

Bit of an update... First of all I would like to thank Sean @ Adrenaline Performance & Fabrication for all the time and effort he has put into it. His fab working skills are 2nd to none! He even brought it down to me from Bunbury!

So it's made 350 @ 18 psi on a safe tune to conserve the stock turbo bottom end that has been fitted with all my bolt ons + glide with 4500 rpm stall. To say I'm happy is an understatement.. Pulls hard as and has no issue turning tyres in top gear!

Also fitted coulsen front seats.. Few lil things to tidy up but il tend to them after i get back from bali, need new alt as having issues with it stalling wen lights are turned on. Remembering it has 3 fuel pumps + stereo gear.

The amount of money you'd spend on getting stockies made for that spacing, if it's even possible, you'd probably be best off just getting some pro stars or something...

Ye it's like 110 each rim and at the time I called him to do it awhile ago he didn't even need me to take any stockies down as he had that many buy even so I got few kikn round anyways.

Ye Marty may take it down see wat happens with work as I usually finish work by 6most. Days.
