I totally ignored mine yesterday and went and had a look at a Jeep Wrangler. When I went to go out today it didn't want to start. I think I'm being punished for being unfaithful

Drove it home from work.
Carefully positioned 3 bits of old plywood underneath it to stop the diesel leak from staining the driveway.
Drank beer.

The deal is get our old 92 charade road worthy and sell it. I can spend the profit on the GQ.

Should be enough for some tyres and wheels hopfuly with change to buy a cheap box trailer and some steel to turn it into a half decent camping (not 'camper) trailer.
Strewth...getting an organ removed is gettin a bit bloody serious..... I hope it wasn't your heart???

Seriously, I hope you get back behind the wheel asap.....

I tidied-up a bit of air-line hose fitting and moved the front Ryco outlet onto a different part of the bullbar.

On Friday I fitted-up the little gizmo between the filter housing and the filter, in readiness for fitting a McNally oil pressure/temp gauge when I finally get around to ordering it. I didn't take it for a test drive immediately; but on Friday night I drove the 34klm to/from Moonta to get a Chinese feed. Yesterday morning when I went out to the carport, friggin oil all over the joint. BUGGAR!!! Cleaned it all up and re-fitted the gizmo with some Stag to help seal everything this time. Took it for a short drive and it seems to be okay now...

There's always something going on with my Chev-Nissan.

Mounted me power inverter in the glovebox and wired her up, adjusted the door catches so they would close properly instead of the usual slamming them shut, replaced a rad hose that had a pin hole in it, stood there stairing at the rear of me car continplating on making some rear draw storage but decided to go inside and watch tv

Cheers

Well it started last week with an oil change, and check the rest of the fluids. Looked around whist underneath it looks ok but not what i'd like to see on a track the top side looks better there. Went all out and sealed a leak in the snorkle to stop the H2O getting in and then loaded it for a fun weekend i got back fom last night. Sorry guy's i just had to say it lol

Good work mate, mine looks like this most of the time, once you get it there it is not that hard to maintain. I am a bit anal with both my cars but I really like having an 18 year truck that still looks fairly new.

I dont have a pic of the inside but here is one of the outside.
