    Hey David.

    Nice dash - where did you get the gear shift sticker from.

    My VW's are all different and the gearshift patterns are also different - gets confusing!

    Cattai national park on the hawksbery river, for anyone interested. I was the only person there last night.

    There are some great spots up that way nils if you push up the mountain towards kurrajong. Richmond rsl is free power hard standing if you join. Not bush but not too bad a view and you get all that downtown Richmond has to offer lol

    Hooray! finally got this thread back after the photobucket hijack.

    Quick update on things going on.

    Just fixing up more wiring details, remember when grommets were a thing?

    Speaking of grommets, fixed this one finally
    [​IMG]
    and added a 3rd brake light while I was in there, Hella Matrix LED for those interested
    [​IMG]
    Added a volt gauge for the Aux battery

    Bought a big fat Evakool 55ltr, This has the smallest footprint verses Litres that I could find, metal body and Danfoss compressor and got it on special for $700, winner!:cool:

    you have been busy. looking good. that third brake light is a great idea.......most people don't notice the brakes when the lights are on, probably because they weren't looking in the first place.

    If only that was the truth, I have maybe put 2 days in on the car over winter. The house is back to all consuming.
    The 3rd brake light is the same as on the Caravelle and I thought was a great idea, particularly as the spare tyre does block the brake light a little for taller vehicles.

    I will be up the sunny coast at Xmas, staying with the inlaws. I may need a reality check by then and drop you a line Peter.

    Unfortunately that trip fell through though David. I ended up in the NT for a month with work,as a result I didn't get enough done on either the house or the van to do a snow trip again this year AND the course in Brisbane got postponed to October. As a result i would be lucky if I have done 500km this winter.
    But the point is the van needs to be reliable ( put a little over 100000 on the white van in the 3yrs I had it ;))
