    Replace the fender, no one here Ive seen does a good filler and sanding down to smoot finish job which you cant tell from 5 miles away is filled with bodyfiller because its is more wavy than the sea on a stormy day. Even a used one in good condition i.e no dents and dings from scrap is preferable than repairing the old one

    I didnt ask, I just press a few buttons when ever the msg pops up. To this day I dunno how many I have or where I can check. Anyways point was ( no pun intended ) this defeats the purpose of the system ( although Im not in favour of it ) and I think if you go back and look hardly people comeback with "contributions' as promised as usual disappear again once the points are donates. P.S : Im bored of talking to the sane 4-5 people here all the time!

    Corvette C8 revealed

    Too Ferrari-ish and not enough Corvette Or maybe its just the red paint?

    From that tiny 0.5 pixel by 0.5 pixel tiny pic I can tell you its an auction car. Because it has the lot number sticker on the driver side windscreen. Most probably copart, from the look of the pic. GCC specs? KIA Sportage?

    Well if he like to sell the car, then he should be comfortable in answering these test discrepancies. If its not a rare car that you are after, I would pass on smallest red flag on chassis or engine.

    This one is very useful.. i saw so much more data and it's helpful. Thanks mate. i think i should talk ask the owner a little more details. This is tricky as i think the owner may not feel comfortable to discuss.

    never thought of this, the current owner sure has vasta. odometer has not changed - so i understand it's the same KM as in the test. no, the report only has this - no more details. The car is only 4 Cylinder. vincoderz and current vehicle license has the same license numbers - did not check the actual serial number on the vehicle though..

    This sound either a discrepancy on RTA system or wasta to pull out and conceal things. God knows. Can you answer my previous questions....?
  17. Corvette C8 was revealed yesterday. I’m surprised it wasn’t posted here yet. They have dropped the FR setup and went for a MR setup so maybe we’ll see a car that can handle and compete with the likes of Ferrari and Porsche instead of just going fast in a straight line. Personally I kinda like how it looks. It’s a bastard Ferrari Lamborghini lovechild but there’s still enough Chevy in it for you to tell it’s a Corvette.

    Depends on the car and who’s doing it and if they have done it before but if it’s a simple one, it could be done in half a day. I used to be able to change the engine in my race car in under 30 minutes if I used power tools.

    I have used Euro gulf early this year for my range small hole in bumper and they seem to do a good job in fixing the hole and painting whole bumper. Only stupid stuff I spotted that Euro gulf location in google maps is different where they send you to drop your car, nearby but stupid that RSA can't give exact location other than just Name. I dropped car in Europe rent a car workshop - maybe sister concern.
  21. If leaf springs are too stiff you can always take a leaf out. If they’re too bouncy you can add a leaf in. I’ve worked on cars in the past where I couldn’t get parts so I measured what I need and searched through piles of springs in a scrapyard until I found the size of leaf I need. They’re easy to modify if you are prepared to put a bit of work in and do some experimenting.

    The more confusing thing was both the tests were same day, just 3.5 hours apart. The car had the same mileage in both the tests. This is the only detail I have for the issue... You think a car engine replacement for a small SUV 2.5 can be changed in like 3.5 hours ?

    Stick the VIN into vindecoderz.com, it will give you the original factory spec, engine number, transmission number etc. then you can check if the numbers on the engine correspond. Converting a 6 cyl to a 4 cyl does seem odd though. You’re more likely to do it the other way around.

    Anyone good at balancing Carbs?

    Yeah it’s a project. I’ve got it running so it’s going on the back burner for a while until I finish some more important stuff. The triple deuce used to be a popular setup with hot rodders in the US of A back in the day but personally, I don’t get it. 4 twin choke carbs on an 8 cylinder make more sense, one choke for each cylinder. Even a pair of 4 barrels if you want to make it simpler. 6 chokes between 8 cylinders, the numbers don’t add up. But, it’s period correct for the car and it’s unique so it’s staying.
  25. My wife did a small accident with SLK. My insurance company told me about 4 garage in Dubai. I am trying to decide which one to choose. This car was fully original so far no accident and no paint done before. It was looking hilarious. I dont want it to look bad after repair. My right fender will be painted. Is there anyone tried or heard about - Nasir Kalaji Auto Maintanence - Liwa Automobile - Euro Gulf Workshop - Pal Auto Garage Basically i want to know how good they are at body work. It is just a dented fender but i want a work close to perfect.

    Can you open the details of these? Looks like at some point chassis had some issues and I will be very curious to know how did it passed again after few days. Second seems tires, must be old so he changed for renewal - normal Cylinder case is also doubtful that it shows car had 6 cyl engine, but owner changed to 4 cycl - why.....? Error in RTA data - It's OK Customer change engine - why, where, which, at what kms etc. etc.
