NEW FEATURE: Post Like system!!!

At long last, we have successfully implemented a comprehensive post rating/like system. With casual readers and visitors vastly outnumbering frequent posters, it is not always apparent to users that others are reading, enjoying and grateful for their posts. If you are too shy to post and want to express your thanks, now you can!

Liking a post is easy - click this thumbs up in the top right hand corner of the post: Image

Can I encourage everyone to use this new feature enthusiastically and liberally and be sure to go back to your favourite old topics and like old posts. This will help build up useful user 'like' profiles and give credit to the users who has provided so much value to this community. This in turn helps guests and newcomers sort useful answers and posters from others.

This goes to regular forum lurkers especially - please show your appreciation with a 'like'!

Featuring:
  • Liked post counters in every user profile (given & received)
  • Liked post leaderboard accessible from the index and Quick Links Menu
  • Receive notifications when your post is liked, configurable from the User Control Panel (in forum notification and/or email notifications available or off)
  • You can remove a like if you made a mistake by clicking the undo button where the thumbs up used to sit (but the user will be notified)
  • Plus more

Motorretro - Learn how to restore your car or bike

#1 Post by motorculture » Thu Nov 03, 2016 12:32 pm

Working on your own car is perhaps one of the most satisfying aspects of modifying cars. Sometimes though, you just don’t know where to start, especially if you are not handy with tools in the first place.

Perhaps you are a quite a DIYer, but your project has grinded to a halt, thanks to parts being out of production, or simply too expensive to purchase. More often than not, the project has simply reached a point where a craftsman would have to take over.

Image

The great news is Motorretro is here to help. Started up by bodywork maestros Georgio Rimi and Vaughan Ryan, Motorretro provides enthusiast classes and a space to learn how to do panel beating, welding and other related skills.

Image

Georgio and Vaughan were classmates at Ultimo TAFE back in 1989, and became fast friends and rivals. Each strived to be the best at panel beating, and after having successful careers and businesses, the pair decided to work together again. Both realised that there were lots of bikes and cars rusting away in sheds, simply because the owners did not have the knowledge or tools to continue restoring them. By offering classes in vehicle body repairs, motorcycle restorations or customising parts, Georgio and Vaughan can impart over 40 years of knowledge and skills to the average bloke having a go.

“We offer our students classes in vehicle body repairs, motorcycle restorations, custom fabrication, welding and traditional coach building skills,” says Vaughan.

Image

He emphasised that classes are limited to 10 students per class. Students learn hands-on in a casual and enjoyable atmosphere, and all skill levels are welcomed. After class hours are available, and students can opt to stay back and work on their own projects, with 90 per cent of the workshop’s tools available for use (subject to conditions, of course).

Keeping up with current technology, Motorretro also offers in-house 3D printing and CAD services for those who want to take a step further in prototyping or customising parts that are no longer made. They also offer car/bike restoration or designing services for those who needs expert help on their projects.
