    Yes, looking forward to seeing it myself.
    I'll tow the '77 Trakka to Trakka on Wednesday, pick up the T3 Trakka Thursday and drive home Friday.
    Gives me a break from the farm work and the welding. :)

    Another terrific build, I can't understand why people just bog up rust and think its ok, and terrible news for the owner, condolences to you, all the family and friends, can't wait to see it finished, cheers Greg

    Just caught up on the last half of this thread, must apologise for so many likes and I did try to restrain myself, you may need to put your trip plans on hold for a couple of weeks due to the terrible bush fires on the north coast or at least check weather the highways are open, its not very nice at the moment, safe travels, cheers Greg

    Thanks, I am loaded ready to go but the highway open and shuts daily at the moment.
    Will make decision tomorrow, I guess.
    Cheers.

    Amazing topic and work. Sorry to hear of Dave's passing.

    I have a Sunliner that might be one of the very first that Tony Hunter built, but I can't find any information and Sunliner say they kept no records of their early builds. It's fantastic that Trakka have such pride in their heritage as a business.

    Sorry for the much belated reply.

    Absolutely brilliant and awe inspiring thread ... wow!

    Just for clarification, the air filter intake system you speak of is the Donaldson brand, not unlike a mini truck barrel type ... excellent system.

    The 3 yo T2 Bay DOKA 2L I bought in 1980 already had the Donaldson installed.

    Donaldson still manufactures a massive range of products in its factory at the same address in North Wyong NSW:

    Thank you for your kind review.
    Yes, Donaldson. I nearly had it right:)
