Default Pretty Late Intro Sorry

Hey everyone,
I realise that I broke the rules and Ive posted here a fair bit before now, But I haven't been banned yet !

My name is Dann Jolly, Im an Aussie (pronounced ozzy, like ozzy osbourne, not pronounced o-see, get it right).

Im a 21 year old Apprentice mechanic, Ive been playing with cars since I was 15 or so. I own and daily an NA6 as per the sig, and it gets dailied with no heater fan, windows etc. Because thats how i roll.
I also own an AE86 sedan rally car and a Nissan pulsar club car.

Id say my overall auto knowledge isnt bad but Im about 5% of the way to where I want to be with it.

Flame away.

Dann
Ninja edited these photos sorry, I painted it today myself, hasnt been buffed yet, cost under 150 aussie dollars all up, and it was dented and flaky etc.

I Dont have one sorry, tune the car myself and a lot has been done since it was last at the dyno. It is still atmo though, I have the 2554 and the cooler and piping, I need the manifold finished and the dump pipe made.
Being an apprentice I feel i'm better off spending my money on track days than maintaining a turbo car and doing a third as many track days, for now.
