Howdy

About time for another workshop day and BBQ after/during I figure ...

Thinking of Saturday July 28th at my new joint ... got heaps of flat space, hoist, shed, etc, so who's up for it?? Figured we'd do a BBQ lunch and a few tubes followed by a BBQ dinner that all the families can attend also??

Thoughts??

Bring it all mate - have most, but two pipe benders will be good as there is two wanting to start tube bars ...

Got an oxy setup and an arc welder though, so shouldn't need that (saves carrying the real bulky gear) ...

Plenty mate - 2 full fridges and the Waeco which I'm using right now!!! lol

Soooo .. me and Dhuck worked out the test track through the back of the property this arvo - it's a bottler as Tank struggled after the fourth pass though without lockers on ... it will be a challenge for anything unlocked and I fully expect all cars to have a lash!!! lol

Here's a quick flex shot going over a well grassed hill which is now a mess - absolute slop and after a few passes in 2 wheel drive to dig in the ruts, it's not a bad little run!! Not bad to have in your back yard!!! lmao

Doesn't look too difficult and only started chopping into it last night with a few runs through with Tank, but I struggled to get out on the last time around (and it's only going to get worse as more attempt it!! lol) ... I officially have a mini test track in my back yard!!!! Life is good!!!! lmao

Sooooo ... who's up for having a lash??

Couple from the top of the track going down (it's a one way job from the bottom though - going down would be too easy!!! lol).

18021

18022

18023

Couple from the bottom looking back up the hill - those steps in the middle are harder than they look - especially due to having to down right hard on the top of them to stay on the track!!! Gangs of fun!!!

No way you can drown the old girl on the test track mate ... very bogged yes, drowned no!! lmao

Well, Dhuck and I have been doing some track maintenance today ... basically, we figure it's been too dry, so track maintenance consisted of getting the garden hose, removing the fittings and syphoning the dam into the track!!!! lmfao!!!

We figure about 30,000 litres should it ... that'll take 2-3 feet off the dam height and see the track in a fitting state for use next weekend!!!!

Can't wait lads!!!!

Haha - you'll be right mate - but there will be plenty of cameras just in case I'm sorry to say!!!! lmao

I'd be getting through early before it gets churned up too much - once a few go through, I reckon it'll be a different track to what it is now!! Bring it on!!!!! lol

Well, throwing the hose into it trickle feeding from the dam has had the desired effect!!! lmao

Looking down the track from near the top...

Looking up from near the bottom...

18315

Another from the bottom end ...

18316

The entry point ...

18317

Going to have to come up with names for each part and put up signs - because I'm an idiot like that!!! lmao

Soooo ... "Patrol Passage" is my thoughts for the track name, with names like "Dead Mans Curve", and "Septic Step Up", and "Dambuster Lane" ... obviously needs that many signs being as HUGE as it is!!!!! lmfao ...

Shed is cleaned up and ready to roll also - figure two trucks side by side inside it, one in the hoist, and as many as people want on the concrete out front ...

For those staying over, don't forget a tent, your camper, a swag, or whatever - I think there's about a dozen camping the night not including my brood ... so bacon and eggs Sunday morning it is I reckon - Chris (MudDonk), you're on brekky duty again old mate seeing as you and your lad cooked up a storm last time!!! lol

Should be a bottler weekend one and all ...

Maybe people could pipe up now with any specialist tools they know they'll require tomorrow that they don't have?

I don't have a lot of specialised stuff, but do have some - because I figure every project justifies a new toy :-) - and am prepared to bring along identified toys - I guess there would be others.

Good idea mate - I did mention in one of the texts to bring tools (specialist style) but don't want people going to too much trouble either ...

Thanks Scotty and forumites, had a ball, parted with some treasures free to a good home, and acquired some back either free to good home or reasonably priced.

Interesting watching what people were doing to their Trolls, and Hiluxes, and ?? Learned a few things, and was able to add confusion from time to time with dodgy advice :-). Nah. just kidding - all the advice I provided and all that I heard was of the best quality the giver could manage. That's what a forum like this is about, I reckon. Share experience and knowledge in a polite and friendly way, and we all move forward. Magnificent!!

I have never seen such a short length of chocolate sludge on a slight rise create so much mayhem. Only a few metres long, but there were multiple recoveries, as well as some triumphant passages through that must have made the driver proud! What am I talking about? The so called test track. Able to submerge a 35" tyre completely, by the end.

Wet sloppy and 'orrible, yet despite that, a few managed to smoke up tyres!

There will no doubt be pickies and maybe if we are lucky, there are vids as well.

Handing over to the others :-)

Haha - heads all good mate - hit the hay at a very respectable 3:10am!!!

The damage list is growing from yesterday though ... here goes ...

Chris - punctured tyre wall
Dhuck - bead leak and flat
Scotty - ruined rear wheel bearing, possible auto issue, and slight panel realignment
Chris - fairly significant panel realignment (roof gutter, both passenger doors, drivers door)
Dhuck - panel realignment (both passenger doors and drivers door also)

And by the way, by realignment, I mean bent!!!! lmao

Dhuck's car currently not mobile, Scotty's car barely mobile, and Chris' car more than likely immobile after he finishes the job he started yesterday on his front drivers side CV (clicking pretty bad!!!).

We have the technology people!!!! We can rebuild them!!!! lmfao

A good demonstration of the different things that motivate us to go playing :-)

I'm getting too la2y for heavy duty cleaning, and for fixing things any more than necessary :-)

Cruising along a beach looking for a fishing possie is close to my idea of heaven - and yes, I know, sand and salt :-)

Video is uploading to youtube (57 minutes) ... it will have the appropriate warning on the post, however I have done 'zero' editing, so if you have sensitive ears then best avoid playing it!! lol

Last of the lads have just left, and quite frankly, what an awesome weekend ... great group and just a non stop laughathon ...

Thanks a million to everyone who attended, assisted, offered support, and hope you had a bottler time - something to make just a regular lock in event I reckon ... and just wait till the wombat holes get dug out on the upper section of the track to turn it into a complete nightmare!!! I seriously can't get the smile off my dial - although we will more than likely need a repair day to fix the issues caused on the workshop day ... if that makes sense??!! lmao

p.s. trucks actually did get repaired also - 1 Service, wiring setup for roof lighting, new brake lines/bleed, suspension just about fully replaced, new UHF aerial and cable, manifold leak fixed, and a few largish issues highlighted on Random's car that need some serious TLC ...

The full video of yesterday's events will take a few days, as it's a few hours long ...

LANGUAGE WARNING - TURN SPEAKERS DOWN, REMOVE KIDS FROM ROOM .. and then just sit back and hopefully get a giggle .. God knows I did!! lol

Haha - no money making ventures coming out of my property old mate ... just a bit of comic relief and variety every time people come over ... it certainly provided that yesterday!!! lmao

I still get the giggles going watching it just knowing that Chris was about to leave and a certain someone (no, not me funnily enough) jibed him about not making it through in 2 wheel drive ... he'd already picked up 3 wonderful new battlescars that I'm assuming will take a full bottle of McGuaire's "Acid Show and Shine" to get rid of (lol - i.e. they're there to stay!!), AND had repaired a tyre/flat, AND had a badly clicking front CV, but true to peer pressure form, he was having none of the mockery ... put his cape on, put his underwear over his overwear, and the rest as they say, is history!!!!
