    Tasmania is such a cool island to tour.

    Either Kombi or push bike

    Wonderful place to visit but so windy! Got some trouble to stay on the left lane when we had some gusts at 100 km/h!

    Had a fully reconditioned distributor fitted today .The difference is tremendous ,idling is so smooth and performance going up hill was great. .
    More than happy with it , money well spent.
    Next is the steering box and that's being done mid January.That then should be the last thing to be renewed. Then it's all ready for Dubbo.

    De-rusted, and re-constructed the swiss cheese drivers A Pillar. Ok, so coming clean this is actually over 2 weekends, not really in 1 day lol, but first time trying my hand at it, so it was a big learning curve.

    Thanks Chris, and yep I did treat all metal w Rust Gel, inc the inside, and then sealed most w Rustoleum converter sealer and primer spray
    except areas where I used weld through primer so the welds would take.
    Now I have to tackle roof corner section over psngr pillar, but it looks like I'll have to use a full cut piece (if anyones cutting up a bus let me know)
    Cheers Waz
