Wholesale Automatics today for a Torque Converter Lock-Up Kit..


On the way to Bayswater I averaged 12.5ltrs/100ks after installation on trip home averaged 10.8ltrs/100ks.. early days but I'm thinking I should have had 1 on the old Paj ;)

Was impressed with the S/W matched the OME 1s perfectly:

They do some bleedin' impressive work, don't they?!? :thumb:

Did you get one of their upgrade valve body kits too?? Or are you going to wait & see how it goes off road first? :nosey:

Rocket had a good go at talking me into one Peter :lol:

But yes will see how it goes if my off road van was heavier I may well have just gone for it but at 2 ton fully loaded I'm sure it'll be fine.. After warranty period is up I'll consider it then ;)

In answer to they do good work.. I agree best in that area IMO :thumb:

After waiting so long it's great to see my Cruiser getting fitted out so well by my mates at Creighton's TJM.. Over the next few days TJM Gold Series Struts/Shocks, Tough Dog Coils & Airbags with Kevlar Sleeves by Airbag Man in rear.

Have done the Calculations re: GVM Upgrade & I'm fine.. ;)

*Note Removed TJM Gold Series as we updated Off Road van so see later post Lovells GVM Upgrade fitted

Would it not make more sense to fit the bull bar and winch before the upgraded suspension, so you know where its going to sit when the suspension is then added - otherwise you might end up having to go back and beef up the front springs some more AFTER the bar & winch goes on?. :confused:

Far out that is awesome. And I wasn't convinced about a black (non colour coded) bullbar but that looks bloody awesome. Some black wheels could finish the theme off.... :)

Cheers Fred, Yes the Black Bar came up well. What convinced me was seeing a color coded bar on 1.. Thought about Black Wheels but at this stage I've spent enough on the bloody thing :petrified:

Black wheels - I've heard everything now! :rolleyes: :D
