Well other than waiting for a couple of speaker surrounds so I can properly mount the speaker canopy is done.

It was my birthday on Tuesday, the old man bought me some gardening gear. Put the new shovel to good use.

I hate gardening, anything do to with houses actually. Always have always will, they don't interest me at all. Dad thought to help me with this.

Oli.
Mate, love what you have done to both the Rok and the Canopy.
You will need to catch up with Crispmods and get him to do a ECU tune on it just to give you that bit more torque to carry the weight lol
good to see that you still miss the BT ( Not ) how do you find the 2.0L compared to the 3.0L Ranger?

Millsy two steps ahead, Chris is at my place on the 12th with a few other blokes from the ausamarok forum. I do miss the bt, a lot actually. The volkswagen is a hell of a lot more refined and better on and off road would you believe. I was really worried it would struggle off road as the bt was sooooo damn good but the amarok with its electrical trickery is better. But the bt was genesis, my first, I will always miss that car. Threw a couple of ton on the back and she handled it much better theN the bt, power wise and stability wise. The only thing I don't like about it is it's just abit flat when your over 100km/h and you need to overtake. Other then that I do like it but looking forward to Chris working his magic on it. Have been in one who has been done, WOW what a difference. What stage did you get done on the rebadged?

Thanks Aaron, I really am proud of it.

Cheers Oli

Great news on getting Chris around to wave his magic on the Rok, Bloody amazing work and their is no comparison from the DPChip to the stage 1.5 tune that ive got. Have fitted a top mount intercooler now as well and removed the EGR cooler so just need to fit the exhaust and the EGT & Boost gauge's and will look at the stage2 :crazy:

Ooh, top mount. I though a front mount (although a dumb position) was a much more efficient system. Very interesting. The egr may not make it through this tune, what a damn shame. I'm very interested in your top mount, notice any difference in,temps and power? Any links photos?

Thanks mate she certainly will do the trick. Yes with a supercharged chev I spose you don't have to look to hard to find power. Your list of 'mods' is missing frangipani flower stickers, they add 25hp straight up.

Yeah mate I do, they are a medium duty which is really comfortable when I'm just tray back and takes the weight really well when canopy is on. It does sag a bit fully loaded but it's a great alrounder.

Canopy is fully wired up. All I need to do now is put some marine carpet in than it's 100% done. Then time to play with a couple of electrics in the cab. Modifying never stops.

Nah, not as good as your BT. lol.

Currently sitting on the beach at Brooms Head, enjoying beautiful weather of 18-20 degrees. Nights a bit cold, but that is easily handled.

Been seeing whales pass not a few hundred metres from shore each day. My camp site is only 2 metres from the Pacific Ocean, what a dream, but someone has to do it.

It is a massive camping site, but only 3 others camped here, as most think it is too cold on the beach in Northern NSW.

Those on the hill behind, where the caravan park and cabins are located, seems quite full, but where we are on the unpowered beach sites, is virtually empty.

Unfortunately, we have to leave tomorrow for the cold climes of home.

Catch up with you some time.

Hey Bernie, you will have to meet the new addition. I am now the proud father of Tristan Ryan Pearl. Little fella decided to show up 6 weeks early but is doing really good.
