Silverado mirrors turned up this morning from America , how the hell they can do the postage for $23 usd I don't know , mirrors were $99 usd so all up converted to our Monopoly money it's about $160 delivered .
Now the fun begins but I'm not wiring up the heating system in the mirrors .

Had to drill out five out of eight bolts the buggers were made of soft stuff and rounded off too friggin easy .
Won't need a haircut when I've finished because I won't have any left .

Thanks Winnie , just saying that there's not many with electric mirrors that I've seen , which is why replacements are so rare and expensive .
I was Quoted around $600 plus for each mirror and that was if they could get them .

The decision was made as far back as 2012 but it's taken me a while to get around to it. Today I paid Harrops a $500 deposit & booked in my car to get one of their e-lockers fitted. I decided to take it to Melbourne for them to do it as if anyone knows how to do it right it'll be the folk that make it. Booked in for 18th May.
It'll be reassuring 'insurance' for solo travel.

Got my truck a adjustable drag link to fix up the steering wheel! Hopefully an easy installation with minimal mechanic experience

The Mad Ozzy
Became broke after getting a new set of boots for the troll. Never used the Westlake brand before but so far pretty quiet and handles well on road, will see how they go after a few weeks and a trip up north including an off road trip. Nice tread blocks and partial side walls blocks, appear to be a better tread than the maxxis I had on before
