    Wiring in the dash

    Last time I had some of the dash fascia off while I was getting the power & dash light feed for the airbag pressure gauge I thought I could really do with tidying up all the wiring in there Not sure what would be the best way to do it, but right now I've got a few different wires tapped in to...

    Border Track

    Looking to do the Border Track on the way back from a Great Ocean road, Otways and Grampians trip next month. We had to change our plans from doing the Gibb as none of the NPs in the Kimberly will be open until May so we weren't going to be able to see nearly any of the places we wanted to Not...

    Aggressive AT again, MT, or AT...

    Starting to look at getting a new set of tyres for my 76 so that I've got new boots for my Kimberley trip in April 2020. For the main I've been pretty happy with the Kumho MT51's in 285/75R16 - 1 puncture from a screw and 1 out of 6 tyres has scalloped I'm tossing up between getting another 6...

    ITechworld Lithium

    Has anyone out there got one of the iTechworld lithium batteries? https://itechworld.com.au/collections/lithium-batteries/products/120ah-12-volt-lithium-battery?customer_posted=true#contact_form They say the battery has it's own BMS inbuilt so it works with chargers that don't have a specific...

    Gauges for airbags

    Has anyone used or are using any of the Viair or Thor dual needle, Airbag man dual needle or airbag man digital gauges? Now that my tax return has come in I'm still undecided which way to go. Leaning towards the airbag man digital for ease of reading air pressure on the fly and at night

    Drop down table

    Slowly in the process of making a drop down table with an extra slide out section for the large barn door of the 76. Using some aluminium from an old sign I acquired from work (i.e. stopped from going to the dump) as the new door card and the drop down table and some 15mm ply for the extending...

    Cowarie Station

    Bumped into a bloke I know from cricket last weekend and he told me about the campgrounds at Cowarie Station where you camp right on the Warburton River. He'd taken his family up there about a month ago and said the river was flowing at a rate of knots so decided we'd head up there and check it...

    Easter 2019 @ Lincoln NP & Whalers Way

    After a quick trip under a low flying helicopter to trim off some hair, we buckled the kids in and set off towards Woomera/Pimba. We'd left a bit later than we'd hoped to, but such is life. The wildlife wasn't in a kamikaze mood thankfully so the late start wasn't a problem, although there were...

    ARB Recovery Point installation

    Scored myself a ripper bargain yesterday - $100 for a brand new ARB recovery point from a legend up here who bought it for his 76, but sold the car before he fitted it. Then he found it in the shed and asked if I wanted it. Incidentally a fellow 4x4 Earther bought his old 76, just can't remember...

    Reverse camera

    Coolant flush

    I started the process of dropping the coolant out of my 76 on my last break, replacing the water pump and thermostat along the way. I followed along with my service manual, but only had about 12L drop out and then only managed to get about 10.5L back in. Then today I drained the system again to...
