All good mate, had it covered when welding lol! ....deisels pretty hard to light up anyway lol!









...few things I'm happy with....roll bar will be getting done again, mig ran out of gas while welding the under side, so had to get the stick out (GRRRR hate stick).....a few of the welds will be redone when I get some more gas, it also pulled abit when welding it.....grrrr

Still got to make up a frame for the spare wheel hatch.

Thanks Glen cheers

Not happy with the roll bar, so in the next few weeks it will get cut off and replaced with a twin 2" bar. Wished I'd done that in the 1st place instead of modding the old bar from the old tray Mad Mad
Nah mate, got asked last night to do a camping trip up to Kalpower that weekend.....




.....won't need a fridge to keep the liquid refreshments cold lol! lol!

While in Brisbane on the weekend, caught up with a few mates from down that way for a wheel at Scenic Rim. Was an AWSOME day...

...Some pics & a couple of vids....

....vid playing in mud....


...was reversing through these pits, chassis was sitting on top of the mound. Got off without having to be recovered.....that happened later on in another mud hole Embarassed

....me getting recovered Embarassed


...the chassis had bellied out, & with all the mud, had no traction...




....some more vids...


...I nearly put mine over the side on this track Embarassed





Am pretty happy with the Lightforce Genisis, puts out a good light. Only thing I would like, is if they bring out a combo cover like they do for the 170's, 240's.........I reckon they would be so much better again.
