Bit of an update, got the new shocks in awhile back

Image

Was going to fit Sids old callipers to cranky thinking that the ones I pulled off were still good, but I was wrong.... So have a new genuine set of calipers waiting to go on.

Motor turned up today, didn't do anything silly, replaced all rods and slugs,lifters , flash head gasket and a mild cam.
Image

Believe it or not I degreased and scrubbed the bolt ons... They are still red....
Image

Also my moonlight fabrications airbox turned up, sweet bit of kit !

Well ive had Cranky running for a few weeks now, it defiantly hasn't been smooth sailing!

Ive been plagued with fuel issue after fuel issue.. turns out the factory commo filter decided to lose its guts and block EVERYTHING that it could....

Motor in
Image

Airbox in, its now plumbed up but no pics yet..
Image

New handbrake, replaced EVERYTHING, shoes, springs, cable, pivot point and every other gizmo in there. Its a novelty having a handbrake I tell ya!
Image

I ordered some LED indicators for my bullbar the hole spacing was right, but the leds was 10mm short either side.... So decided to mount them behind the original lens,, actually worked pretty well.

Used it on a little camping trip on the weekend, even managed to get a bit stuck due to being to lazy to let the tyres down.

Saw your ute on the back of a truck heading south mate :)
Doing another DVD down there or are you moving back to Tassie?

I saw it on Wednesday pulled over on the side of the highway just after the twin BP service stations near Burpengary, so just north of Brisbane. Was the last car on the back of the truck.
The tyres were the first thing that caught my attention then I recognized the tray, wouldn't miss it anywhere...I was heading north back from a week away.

Sorry for the thread hijack.

Btw, you're pretty much famous. When we past your ute I said to my misses that's cranky and my wife goes who's that and I said remember the second last DVD the guy that drove that buggy and she was like, yeh Ray?
Hahaha I couldn't believe it.
