Skyline Megameet - Saturday 19Th March In Timaru!

Recommended Posts

Hey all! Its about time we had another megameet i think! The last Southern Skyline Enthusiasts/Skylines Downunder South Island 'megameet' was possibly the SSE Cruise to Lake Tekapo in 2005. And before that possibly the SDU Queenstown meet in 2004.

Details below, please SPREAD THE WORD! We want a huge attendance!

TIME: 8:00am to 8:30am

LEAVE: 8:30am, or NO later than 8:45am, arrive at Caroline Bay at 11am.

LOCATION: TBC, but likely somewhere on the one way system or on Pine Hill?


- Please come with enough petrol.

- There will only be one toilet/food stop and that will take place in Oamaru.

- I'll hopefully have a car at the front (me) and the back with walkie talkies (range dependant) so please try stick to 100km/h so that we don't get too spread out. Following SH1 all the way to Caroline Bay in Timaru, hopefully everyone knows where that is!

    • Bought it a week ago as is, and apparently this thing has scene some drifting days.   however I am aiming to get it to as stock as possible.    fuel pump wiring looks it was bridged for some mode, the two (ylw n red) where chopped of the harness,  I want to know which goes where and if that doesn’t make the fuel pump go what was done to it ? Yellow was connected to external  Red  External  Black - slotted into factory connector  red (factory loom) was unused  External Black was live 12v with ignition  both the other end of this black/red wire had spade connectors on it, as it was connected to something, Please refer the photo attached, Thanks    
    • yeah you'd want an amplifier, I doubt the standard head unit is pumping out 60 WRMS @ 4 Ohms
    • Hi mate do you still have this?      Thanks
    • First time doing a project car, will need help from all you legends on here.  simply respect for the community ! Happy days !! Thanks
    • Completely forgot another fun experience I had with the Silvia very recently. Took it out for a drive late one night with some mates through the mountains and noticed on the drive back the car handling a bit weird getting hard to steer. By the time I made it back onto normal roads, I very quickly realised my power steering was gone. Pulled over and checked the resevoir an it was completely empty. Filled it up fluid on the side of the road and almost immediately it started shooting out from the underside once steering was applied (high pressure line). Got it home eventually and investigated the issue and the fitting which was steering rack had come completely loose. Thankfully an easy fix but extremely fortunate that the fluid didn't catch the tyres causing me to spin or worse yet, the  fluid caught on fire. I've been slack in putting in a fire extinguisher in the car but this was enough to prompt me to get it done. KAP Industries of course has this well sorted so got that organised fairly easily. I really would have liked to put this on the passenger side but anyway, it's done now.  Another minor issue I noticed was that I had no fluid from my windscreen washers, thought it might just be a failing pump. Did some basic testing and noticed that a bulk of the fluid was ending up under the car, near the driver's side front tyre. Pulled out the guard liner and found the lines looking like this. The car use to be quite low when I had bought it and the guard liners had taken a beating and worn through certain sections of it and I suppose over time, the leak got worse but I didn't notice either because there was enough fluid coming through despite the damage or that I kept the car clean enough to not need it. A bit of two I would say.
