    As Scott suggested, makes filter/pump changes easy. The coloured fittings are two dash 8 speedflow elbows just to bring the connections into alignment.

    Now onto another jobby .. the poptop gas struts have been disconnected. Not sure why..

    Do you think my neighbour likes the view?
    Somedays the backyard can showcase 3 kombis, a 96 golf, pt cruiser and a pajero. 20191114_164034.jpg
    So my aim is to connect them again and see what the canvas is all about

    They will probably crack when you start burning the old cupboards and mats in the backyard :)

    Col has seen what I can do with combustibles in the backyard.

    I will make peace with them, throw some lamb on top of the cupboard bbq and invite them over.

    Bush Tucker is a bit of a trend at Mo.

    Does the fumes from the burning urea formaldehyde, make the lamb taste better? o_O

    I need to remove the fridge, stove and sink, mostly because there is gunk and possibly rust behind there.
    Who knows an easy way? Does it all come out in one go? Or shall I start disassembling piece by piece?

    Regarding cupboard removal, I would just look for stray wood screws - I dont think trakka did much more than that.

    If you get the fridge out - you will probably find some screws under or behind that.

    20191114_164134.jpg 20191114_164134.jpg Anyone recognize these 2 T3 fusebox wires?

    Does anyone know what these 2 connectors are for? They are not causing any issue. I suspect pre wired for some option? Aircon? I could muddle my way through the wiring diagrams but perhaps someone knows?

    One serious issue is the pop top support bar. All I have is one side length . Now I have found out , it is fact one third of a u shaped bar, like in this one off gumtree.
    So I will be looking To see how I can make one
    I think I can re attach the 2 gas struts , not sure if that is good enough for now or that front u shape bar is critical?

    I don't know what they are for but one is a inline fuse and the other is a single wire connector.Where the other half's are I can't see them.
