Ok, after what seems like forever my halfcut arrived from melbourne yesterday.

Overall, seems to be in good condition hardly and rust or corrosion in the engine bay like most i have seen stored. Engine looks unmolestered too, no modifications visible.

After talking to brad, we think it's a 93-94model as it has the later dash with an analog boost guage.

Engine has a 152000km's on it, and timing belt looks to have been changed at 120000km's. Still not sure whether i will just check the clutch and timing belt and stick it in and hope for the best and when it goes rebuild it, or just rebuild it from the get go..

It came with a Jap service book/manual which is interesting enough, lots of funny cartoon pictures :lol:

Here are some pics:

Thanks Matt..you just sit back, relax and take a break. Wait for me to get on the road :lol:

It's going to be painful having the mini off the road, while Brad and Dean drive around here having all the fun :shock: ...especially being shotgun in something that you are going to have, but can't yet..

It'll be worth it though 8)

Top stuff Josh, looks so familiar, mine came with the bonnet aswell.

You'll find you can sell the indicators on the starlet website (very sought after because they carefully break out the orange part of the lense and then put an orange globe in) aswell as lots of other bits.

Good luck.

Dan
