Hi, I am keen to get involved. I have bought a car today to convert and starting to research more seriously now what I need to do. I am in the northern suburbs.

It's great there are enough of you Welly guys to form a group, we are a bit thin on the ground up here in the Whangarei area, maybe there are others around here I'm not aware of who even if like me have not started yet, are keen to meet?

What donor did you end up getting? This is something I've agonized about for way too long as I contemplate the different uses, suitable motors etc.

Sign me up! I'm living in Palmerston North as of June. I'd be keen on coming down to Welly for a meet up.

Sam.

All righty guys, when suits everyone for a catch up and where do we want to go? I'll bring the BBQ and some sausages anyone else keen to throw some meat in the mix?
Lets make this big because people are starting to realise these cars ARE what we will all be driving soon and we need to show it can be done right here in NZ!

Hi Karlos, yes I also spent ages looking around and weighing up. A lot of the cars I like the style of are also in demand for hotted up petrol project cars so have gone for the more cross-over family style with a Ford Mondeo. Another that may have suited me was a Primera
I was interested in RWD but choice is limited and I liked the idea of turning a Legach into a RWD. However, in the end decided I wanted a sedan and Subaru sedan's are in super hot demand by others. I watched a B4 with its engine in pieces hit $3500 on TradeMe.

Sooner the better for a Wellington meet-up, I say. Would be nice to rotate, starting with someone who is well under way with their conversion.
