Almost lost an important part of the Hijet...

Post by Lex_Michdebus on Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:24 pm

A deep *toinggggg* was heard just when I started the engine to go on the motorway for a 250km drive. Already 200km away from my welder...

You can click on the picture for a full one. The board software is crap so it eats half the pictures in stead of resizing it.











We were lucky it happened when we stopped for gas. I think it half (the rusted part of the cut) happened when I made a emergency sharp turn/brake when I drove on the motorway two weeks earlier (while doing 100 km/h, almost went upside down). The last bit (the fresh metal in the middle) gave up when I started the engine. Anyway, check your bar-thingy for cracks when you tested the flexibility of your chassis.

Let's hope the pictures work this time!

Should have done that with the Japan trip ones! Very Happy
Been watching Mighty Car Mods on YouTube, they done some great trips to Japan. Looks a fantastic place to go.

I did that to the Japan pictures, only then I did it underneath in the description. But I guess people don't tend to read what I write, even if I write it in bold... Who programs this board? He or she should make the board do the resizing according to the resolution of the browser that it is in. Now I have to resize the pictures to a size for ants so even Woody can see them on his wristwatch. That's just bollocks...

Not seen the Unicorn Circuit but seen the My Crap Car one (and the Carry was crap!). Loved the Daihatsu Mira project they have going at the minute. The VW Beetle sleeper and JDM Mini conversions have been good to watch as well.

yeah i love it to.
love the fact they stayed with regular cars everybody can own.
most guys whould go full retard after having some sucses, they stay treu to their fans.
nice feature movies about japan, nice cheap mods (mostly) and nice affordable cars.

i get more excited about seeing a cool mira or classic mini with some mods than a lamborghini or some ferrari Laughing

do you know roadkill to its on youtube motor trend channel?
those shows are realy nice to watch to.
two regular guys who fix up old american cars and have a lot of fun doing it.
i love that show to
heres a link to one of my favorite episodes
