    Cheers Dave.

    Little blokes asked me today if I could whip something up for them to sit on 'round the camp fire. Sorta works as a washing line for them as well. By sheer coincidence it's at the right height to hold the bootlid open, how arse'y is that?

    But the paint will have a better chance to get a grip, tho maybe not as smooth.

    I'll have you know that the 'paint' on the tub is of the highest grade Mil-spec camo' ( alien tech' I suspect ) .

    Another twenty years and the tub will be totally invisible to the naked human eye. The only way to detect it will be with a magnet when you comb the ground where it was last parked :ksteve

    Damned if I know, it was still making 600hp on the dyno but they are complete orphans here, allegedly all spares are in Australia.The owners a bit eccentric got a early Cummins ISX and is getting set to build a new old truck.DB

    Oh yeah my rigs at Claudes getting a leading link, I haven't decided if that was a fools errand or not,I'll see in the spring, probably is as it steered fine I just wanted 175/65/15's everywhere.Thinking of buying a used k-bike eml setup but one of these things is about enough.DB

    Might be an EA7 if that's the case.



    Just buy the damn thing ( you've been hanging out with Dan to long you old procrastinator :D).

    I was referring to the widdle 3500 thing.


    This came in. It even has a DB in the emblem ... it says Dodge Brothers but that can't be right. I figgered it stood for DaveBig.

    Wow, my old K's never looked (or sounded) like those.

    Beautiful ... but crazy :D

    When I heard the Jetta and the KRS making noises in the garage I should have let them keep at it instead of banging on the wall.

    Very cool Luke I used be a pretty good at getting them to run right only 40 yrs ago. The air bag suspension and airbrakes are over the top but it would be worth it to hear her howl. But the K is really nice.DB

    Remember, I cut the other tub in half and threw it away. The other rack doesn't fit, so time for a new one.


    Old body.
