I think some people equate 'interest' only with 'replies &/or posts', not realising that a lot of people will look/read & follow even if they don't necessarily post (yet)!! :(

Shame, cos like you mentioned Eddy, 100+ views suggests that there WAS a fair bit of interest..... :whyme:

But bugger it, you guys seem to care ha!

Back window tinted ( i was later informed it was a bad idea to get it tinted as driving at night on tracks and what not, opinions?)

No Chilli/Andrew, this is the right place for this sort of thread/post.

If you read the title of the section on the main index page or at the top of each of the sub sections, you'll see that what you are calling the 'Courier' section is actually the MODEL SPECIFIC TECH section intended for Courier specific Tech questions & discussion; not for showing us your vehicle, build-up, or project, & for discussing your future mod plans for your vehicle, unless of course you have some Courier specific tech questions you want answered... ;)


Sticky, I have tinted the rear window of all my vehicles, and I wouldn't mind betting that you'll get more benefit from the cooler interior enabled by the tinting than you would out of any extra vision you'd get from leaving it un-tinted!! The tray & anything you have on it will make it difficult to see too much out the rear window anyway, and with that in mind, plus the fact that almost all drivers (no matter how skilled they are!) tend to turn the wheel a little if they look over their shoulder instead of using their mirrors, making it harder to reverse that way anyway, then you are probably much better off learning to use your mirrors properly regardless!!

Sticky,

I take it you are a tradie / apprentice with the choice of vehicle

When you have the coin consider a couple of the spacecase type containers to throw clothes/ gear into for traveling to and from and tied down in the tray ,they should also be tax deductible

Chris,

Hit the nail on the head im an apprentice forklift mechanic almost second year. I have a draw that came off one of our old work utes at work i could use need to make the rails and stoppers up for it etc but i could do it and then i was also thinking of the under tray toolboxes, so im not sure yet have to decide but first barwork etc.

Cheers
