Need Loan Of A Few Parts For Roadworthy


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Just got my car on wednesday and took it to get roadworthy done but it failed. Now i am wanting to know if anyone can loan me a couple of parts for a day while it gets roadworthy.

I'm after a stock bonnet (preferably black), stock airbox, steering wheel thats legal (prolly stock) and lastly a set of rear wheels (new tyres wont arrive til 2 weeks time)

If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated. I live in Ipswich but will travel to parts of brisbane to pick up parts. Also i'd like to have them this week if possible.

Thanks a bunch guys n girls :)

Mate sorry to burst your bubble but that sounds like a pretty tall order, especially if you're not offering anything in return ($$$/beer/whatever).

Wouldnt it be easier to get a dodgy roadworthy done?? They're easy enough if you find the right place, only thing that should hold you back will be tyres but if they're unroadworthy then you should replace them anyway.

yeh but its the trouble of getting the car to the place to get it roadworthy as i leave for work at 6, get home at 6, plus dont trust anyone else to drive it.

I would definately offer something in reurn yes, no problemo.

Also you know of anywhere that would perhaps do a "dodgey" one for me?

Well dont know any places in brisbane, sorry. I'd only advise you getting a 'dodgy' roadworthy for your own use, never if you're going to sell a car.

Yeah wreckers is good idea, also the small workshops that are attached to servos are often staffed by some shady characters...

Whats wrong with your bonnet anyway?? Carbon?

Is the car in your avatar your car. You never once mentioned what car you own so how are any of us supposed to know what bonnet and other parts you need. I am assuming you have an R33.

I would check with DOTARS because all R32's and some of the early R33's are allowed to have carbon fibre bonnets because ADR 69 does not apply for those particular year models. Don't let them tell you a pod filter is illegal either because they are not. And they have some bullcrap about unsecured....that's crap too. Secured via hoseclamp to the MAF meter.

Cops and roadies seem to think that all carbon fibre bonnets are illegal....that is wrong. I have spoken personally with DOTARS on several occasions regarding this topic and they assure me that 32's are definately clear but only some of the 33's.

3LIT3 FORS3, yeh sorry i completely forgot to mention that, yes the car in my avatar is mine, 1996 r33 series 2

chaos, where u source this from?

looks like i'll be on the work phone again tomorrow chasing these things up. Any of you guys know a 'direct' number to DOTARS, who specialises in modifications? Already got the number of the head engineer of the RAWS workshops in canberra spoke to him last week.

ask her anything you want but be sure to provide as much info as possible about the car and info about your question.

Also the fact that your car is an import.

As for the vents, they are ok whichever way they face as long as they comply with scoop and vent guidelines.

Whoever booked your friends for this was making it up. Never believe what a cop says to you, they will lie 9/10. It is their duty to prove to you that the defect is legitimate, not the other way around. If they do not prove to you that the defect is legit then you can report them for false reporting and they can be fined for it.

hey mate,

haven't seen you around ippy!!?? Didn't know there was anyone in ipswich with internet?? :wacko:

I live in North Booval.

If you still need tyres, i have a set of stock rims with brand new tyres on my r33, if you want to borrow/swap fot the day etc. just let me know. I might be a little bit late with this though.........

Any other parts you need, your welcome to pull off my car, but i kinda need them returned by monday. I've got a 94 model r33 4 door.




P.s. Give us a wave if you see me.

    • Why are you still trying to buy a crappy jap brand exhaust? go to your local exhaust shop and get a heaps better one made that will fit under the body 100x better
    • I’m very happy with my recent purchase of the Fuga but resisting the conversion to English of the navigation system. I’ve used Google translator to get around the system to date but I must have pressed something, now wondering if any Fuga owners (mine is 2011) know how to get out of this ‘dual’ or ‘panel’ screen mode. It’s driving me crazy 
    • hello! i am looking into upgrading the cams on my rb26 in the future, and wanted to start to understand what goes into this. i did a forum search and nothing obvious came up, so forgive me if this is already discussed somewhere. currently the engine is stock, save for (pertinent to this discussion): adjustable cam pulleys beefed up timing belt haltec ecu, not yet installed yet oil baffle plates i am will be converting to a single turbo set up, and that turbo's peak output is reached at somewhere between 5k and 5.5k rpm. this would be for street use. from what i understand, i should be looking at cams degreed at 272°. does that sound like it makes sense? there are step 1 and step 2 variants of these cams. i am not sure what the difference is in the to variants, so if anyone can chime in on this it would be great. i am assuming i would need to upgrade my valve springs as well. other than a tune, what would go into a camshaft upgrade? if i want to go with a v-cam upgrade much later, how does that affect i am doing now? i understand that it's totally possible that i completely missed something major here, but that's why i am posting this: i am here to learn. cheers!
    • I don't know whether you've made a decision yet or not. But left to me, I'll choose RAV4 over skyline everytime. Apart from the fact that RAV4 is a new product, skyline is an old product that it's almost out of vogue. It has some issues and require high maintenance. 
    • Ill see how this adaptor goes first. But thanks for the offer.
