Love the pic grey ghost.

I spent the last two days cleaning sand and salt out of my 60 after spendin the last two weeks catchin mud crabs up in Bowen. Bloody nice place, warm too, but the bleedin wind never lets up. No wonder the locals call it blowin Bowen. Past some nice lookin camp spots right on the beach on the way back down. Clairview I think it was.
Goin back up in a couple of weeks for the fishin classic. Might try to go all the way to the top while I'm there.
Anyone got any tips for the tracks up that way?
I've got a 60 with 12ht, 12lb boost, 3", snorkel and 33" stt's. 2" lift. Ive not got a winch tho. Am I gunna need one this time of year?
All input welcome.

Pulled apart half the drawer system looking for a leak! Found the bugger, a big bung plug had fallen in:(. Painted the top shelf and divider I had a mate make up a few years ago, only put it in to test fit originally;




Finally got around to getting Matt at GOR to replace the clutch too:eek:. 421,00 kays isn't too bad I guess! Might have got a few more though.:D
Thanks Matt,
great job as usual, and Shelley is pretty happy with you for fixing her car too mate:):)

This week I got my brake calipers reco'ed and put them back in tonight (was meant to be a pad change, but 7 of the pistons were seized!)

I also sprayed my rusty/white rims Killrust Matt Black, and did a quick job spraying my bullbar and brush bars/steps.

No pics because I got the shit's with bleeding the brakes and haven't put the front wheels on yet.

Monday night I finished replacing all the seals on the swivel housing, fitted new swivel housing/king pin bearings, new wheel bearings, inner axle seals, cleaned and repacked both CV's, right for another 20 years now. What a mongrel of a job!

Tonight I fitted an ARB compressor under the passenger seat. My Fathers day present I bought myself at the 4wd show last weekend.

Just a question about the compressor under the seat, have you considered how hot they get.

Hi, yeah I thought of that and this arvo when the better half gets back I am going to make up a bracket to mount two small 12v fans I removed from a broken TV to help cool it. just don't know whether to run a seperate switch or just run them off the compressor switch so they are on whenever the comp is running.

I finally finished fitting new wheel bearings to my camper after our recent cape york trip. Put the camper back away and prepared the shed for the next mission



I smashed a CV a few months ago so that needs fixing the king pin bearings are all buggered so I figured I would start from scratch and purchased a second hand housing and then sent it down to Superior to get strengthened up now I will start to fit it up.
