    We got away pretty lightly, the house only has on small window facing the direction the hail came from (broken), Lana's ute has a head of little dents in it, it is just frustrating that she put it up for sale last week.

    A few other smaller things were broken.

    Can't say I like that hail stuff much though.

    It's only $475.45 for a new one.

    I'll rip it out today and keep my eye out for a second hand one, but I'm not in a hurry because I never look at it anyway.

    I do have a speedo of a Husky that might fit in the hole.

    It would be about as useful as the tacho but it has cool blue lights and more digital numbers on the dash are cool.

    I have found a few possibles, but I only really want to get it fixed to keep it complete.

    So I won't be spending to much on it.

    Hi all,

    I am on my way to Melbourne and looking for a place to live. Does anybody from you have a spare room for rent or know of anything?

    The flat hunt was a bit difficult from the distance. Any recommendations of cheap long stay hostels with parking from where I could base myself at first?

    I used this place for a month when I first moved here. Shower/cooking/microwave in the 2 bedrm cabin, coin operated laundry/internet in one of the other buildings. parking beside each cabin etc. Not that handy to the CBD, depends where your job is. Regular public transport goes past the front gate, handy for pub nights.
