Sure is Craig.
She is filthy dirty too.
Anyone have a yells terra top mount blower?



So here is the very first time I put it in drive. Not enough guts to use accelerator but the brakes work at least. Stuff hanging off it everywhere so no drive around block just yet.

Thanks Neil. I was going to edit that out but am so happy even to just roll it up the driveway.

At least it's ready for transport to eastern Victoria on Monday.

Thanks mate...
Except I'm moving 😡.
Went to Sale Vic and back in one 22 hour hit with a car trailer and a co driver to drop off the car and got smashed with bugs that baked into the grill over 1927km's 😳. Awesome economy over the trip too. 11.9L/100 on the way down and averaged 9L the whole trip 👍🏻👍🏻 average speed 87km/hr. I'm going to bed...

Hahaha I'm trying I'm trying.


So I've moved in and the bloody fluro swung loose from the ceiling and scratched the roof before swinging to the side and the metal retainers scratched the red flash.
So angry- made even worse by defence housing saying not their problem and to pay excess.






As you can see some grub did a pretty shit repair prior that didn't hold.


And now an awesome scratch in the custom red.



Most panel shops don't want to touch it.
Considering just sanding the 1k acrylic back and going 2pk but then I'd be doing a Pete rebuild and it's taken long enough already.

Makes me one P'd off person.
