a mate told me about an ad he saw in a rival mag last week and thought the fourby looked familiar so I bought the mag and yep it's my old 60 (the budgie) :D but no-one offered me any money :( oh well it's cool anyway . I am thinking of asking for a discount for a new set of extrctors but

Ahhh mate...ahhh... that last joke? comes with a walking frame right?
glad to see you survived the Xmas insanity. let me know if you trash your flares as i just rescued some off the 60 thats destined for the dump sometime REAL soon. Also saved all the glass out of it excluding windscreen... just in case you want before i put in spares for sale.
last note? you havent been in a backpackers in a while have you...they screw anywhere...and if you add OP bundy... any one , any where...anytime! (just remember to remove the duct tape when done...)

Mark... good and bad news about the chrome clamps...
good news they should be available through any trailer or vehicle modification/fabricating shop.
bad news? they come galvanized... you have to strip them and have them chromed.
I can give you details of the chromeworks i used. and details of the minor mod required to disassemble and reassemble them
but like anything 4wd it'll cost you time and money...(like you believed otherwise) :rolleyes:
So no... it's not a buy off the shelf thing :cry:
But DAMN don't they look good :D
let me know if you're gonna go this way and ill tell more.
re bucket seats... a good friend is about to retire a set of recaro race seats (due to race regs re age of components) i may be able to wrangle them... but if you need recliners then consider a set of 'D1's' from Autobarn...i can vouch for the comfort of these as they are in the 47. Sorry to say most of the 60 bits are pretty stuffed as it was a mechanics work car... and they are grotty sods even on a good day! and no... the centre console is now modded to suit the 80 :sillywink:
hmmm seems im full of negative this morning...Sooo....from the generosity of my huge heart...
when are you travelling through my way? (mackay)... i'll do something about your bragging rights re- BIG FISH :lol:
cheers

put a highlift jack and shovel holder on the roofrack today but I don't like the way they stick out alot coz they could easily catch on a tree when you lean over in tricky terrain so I made my own mounting brackets that hinge the jack over onto the roofrack for the tight daytrips and hang on the outside when loaded up with camping gear . I still need to make a couple of tweaks then take it of for some welding and paint but it seems to work damn fine . FIGJAM ;) some pics

then undo 2 wingnuts and fold it in (I'll change the wingnuts to clips at final assembly)

I'm gunna do the same for the awning on the otherside

Thats a brilliant idea Mark! I quite like that :)
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical

Now thats using ya stinker...er thinker. ;)

Looking to bolt on a deflector in front of my awning as the cover is already stuffed after 3 weeks of trees and sticks hitting it. Its almost torn right through just on the front. Something that will use the 6mm channels to fasten it. Some 2mm stainless me thinks.

Keen to see how your idea goes.
Cheers
