    The generosity and in general the unbreakable Aussie spirit.

    Some of you may may know, @Sprock has had a tough time recently given his truck motor needed to be replaced, a mere 50k for the bill, also on the way to pickup the fixes up truck his patrol radiator decided to let go so that was off the road also.

    I offered to donate my radiator from my patrol as he's also had a slow year for work and after all other expenses his family wagon was going to have to wait till things got better.

    Took a drive down there yesterday and low and behold, sprock is in the midst of arranging to take 6 semi trailers of hay to the farmers up near Buchan as their paddocks are all scorched and there is no food for their herds.

    After installing the radiator, I jumped in with sprock and we headed over to a couple of farmers places. Both had agreed to donate 10 large bales each with the plan to swing past a third person to fill the remainder of the truck. both blokes ended up donating more than the original quota, with the second insisting he wanted to just put on as much has as could possibly be fit.

    I only got to see the generosity from these fellas, but I wanted to say how awesome it is to see that there are still people out there who can do stuff like this, including legend old mate @Sprock

    Whilst this makes me happy visiting my old haunts, it's bloody awful what going on for a lot of folk in Oz, thoughts go out to all affected and all involved in the fighting of fires and dealing with the logistics of everything. Take care all.

    Hi all, never ever thought Id be posting in the happy thread.
    Here we are, finally since the 18th of sept 1991 it appears
    I may be pain free from the 13th of Jan, bit over whelming
    to think about it and all the wasted years from being incapacitated
    Look forward to putting some smiley faces here soon.

    @PeeBee Late getting back here Phil, been busy reducing flammable clutter around the place and associated jobs.

    Used Car Builders peel and stick heat and acoustic shield mat'l against firewall and their embossed heat shield for stand off around dump pipe. As I now use FM IC, have replaced bonnet scoop with rear facing louver panel (600x300mm) what a difference in engine bay temp and transfer thru into cabin.

    Hope all safe.

    Thanks for the reply. I am thinking about the embossed alum. foil as well for my firewall. I used their felted material under the bonnet to great effect. Trust you are in good shape and out of harms way.
