    Bin that idea and off to the wreckers to buy one. Guy asked me do you want a complete one? "Nah I got everything else just the bar please." OK $50. Get home and start taking the links off my old one, nuts were just about fused on, once I got them to the end of the thread the allen key started to spin. Screw it, back to wreckers for the rest $25 per side. Finally have it all fitted. Off to VicRoads, get to the counter I need to get this defect cleared. "yep no worries where's the car just parked at the front, one moment." She walks to the back I can hear asking and one of the guys "what's a sway bar what am I looking for" his reply was go see one of the other guys. Probably wasn't all that long, but it felt like forever, while she chatted with a co worker. Eventually he finishes what he is doing and all three of us walk outside towards my car I pointed it out can he put his head under the bullbar to have a look. I said to him mate its on the other side of the wheel, yep there it is that's OK. Back inside she continues with the paperwork and informs me that there is a $49.95 fee. Well I have to pay it don't I.

    At least I finally got around to fitting one, Thank you Mansfield police and you to Nic, I'll drop in the next time I'm up that way to return your bar.

    I rode the same train when I got done for no front mud flaps.
    Vic roads Bundoora. They mumbled about for an hour before someone came out to just have a look that I fitted them ... Took all of 4 seconds....

    Hodge are you saying that you got defected for not having front mud flaps?

    They'd be an accessory item wouldn't they be surely.

    Yes. No front mud flaps is a minor defect. For a Patrol anyway.
    Every vehicle rolls of the dealers floor with them fitted.

    No I haven't. Is he at the 'Makes hitmen tremble' end of the scale, or the 'makes women's knees go weak' end of the scale?
