Jealous.

I find the euro and US can explode rather easy. Lost a six pack on a main road once due friction.

Solution is to drink it on the first night!

Thanks Gary, actually put the rig over one, last thing this arvo

Been one hectic day

Excited much - Naaaa - Bullchit

What did your mates end up deciding on completing mate? CSR or NT? Still sucks you aren't able to come this year - hope your making headway

Troy, some how these 500ml Hinies made it in the Patrol

Just got home after a weekend run up and down the coast. Dropped all the CSR research material I've put together off to them last week because they are now thinking CSR. Hope they do, they are well prepped. Let you know when they decide.

Finished the Gunbarrel Hwy (3 times - had to bugger off to Carnegie Station ( only a 8 hour return trip ) to get some tools (spring compression tool - yes we made him buy one in Kalgoorlie) to get the Kombie going) Had to make a detour to Kalgoorlie to get some spare parts to fix the Offroad Kombie - broke a front strut. Had a spare but not one for the Canning so ordered new ARB replacement gear from the awesome team in Kalgoorlie and buggered off down to get em. Hopefully heading up to Wiluna today (31st) to start the CSR tomorrow

Finally just have to mention the King shock team on the Sunshine Coast. Had the King Smoothies on for 7 years now, always thought the ride was great - sent them down prior to buggereing off for a full rebuild- new rear shafts, had the stacks modified a bit, new viton seals, new hoses, new valves the whole 9 yards. Well puck me - never and I mean never in my wildest dreams did I think shockies could be this friggin good!!!! The whole truck has been transformed unfrigging believable, the ride is just [email protected] good, I mean a whole new level of [email protected] good. I can hit wash outs - easy twice as fast and hardly I mean hardly even know I drove over em my mate in the other patrol also had his Kings rebuilt the same as me, and we are like a bunch of little school kids - can not friggin believe just how good they are

Completed just over 5000Ks, completed a full service yesterday arvo, full oil change, new oil filters, cleaned the K&N air filter, full grease up on all nipples, topped up the brake fluid and checked the new radiator again - all good
Patrol is dead set running like a dream, happy as
The Earth is dead set flat with 700+NM of torque - drivability is just through the roof

Made it from Kalgoorlie to Leinster this arvo. Hit the CSR tomorrow morning
Offroad Kombie has new ARB front struts and springs. He also received a replacement Bilstien and he bought another spare Bilstien as well. He also has the original Kombie gear as well. So hopefully with 5 spares he might make it to the end of the CSR.

Having said that we all bloody hope we make it with no issues.

I have a complete rebuild kit for the hiem joints on all the kings and all the rubbers etc - I also have one front and rear OME shock, as does the other patrol - so a full set just in case

So unless something hits us from left field, we should be OK
