    Took a step back and removed the reducer and plug from the pre-heat system as I found that it was using more fuel. I will have to manufacture a some sort of plug that will fit properly.

    I have finished an engine stand with large enough wheels to handle the rough floors of my sheds. It is made of about 90% recycled material. Now, I'll buy some decent 12mm bolts for it and also make a temporary clean room so I can strip an engine I have bought from a wrecker.

    After many complaints from passengers, especially in the third row, regarding the harshness of the ride with the 2" lift. I have fitted the standard springs and new rear shocks. It drives like a totally different beast, smooth and stable. I think the problem is the springs were meant for a TB42 with roof rack, sliders winch and rear drawers. The RB30 block and gearbox are a fair bit lighter than the TB.

    I will keep the lift, because I still want to set the Old Trol up as a tourer.

    Made a vinyl sleeve to slip over the D/S visor to prevent sun damage to my ear.

    Simple to use: slide it back to fill the gap left by the visor. Slide it forward and clip up the visor as per normal.

    Funny, I drove a hyundai terrracan today and noticed it had these factory fitted. First time I've seen that and commented how good an idea that was, then you post up yours on same day! Nice work mate.

    Was a hire car this terracan, and had been driving it for nearly two weeks and never noticed it. Today (well actually yesterday now) driving along my passenger noticed it and yep there they were on both visors. Gave us something to discuss through stark boring central QLD coalfield country. Apart from the grouse burgers we had in Emerald that was the highlight of our day haha!
