    Surprised you were playing with the dash today, considering I’ve just seen the onshore swell from the East Coast Low on the news tonight... ;)

    Or did you manage both? :rolleyes:

    I've done this over the last two weekends but finished it today. This isn't duplicated as I do own two utes ,what I do in one I normally copy over on the other. It had loop pile carpet which for me had it's day. Changed it out for original style rubber mat. Took the seats out to strip the carpet. While I had the seats out i took the opportunity to replace the seat belts as one seat belt had started fraying and had ordered replacements in a green webbing.

    middle section also had rubber contacted on,on single cab I left it lower as it is a daily so more practical access was required.

    Turned the Kombi into a woodie wagon. Stacked some firewood for the upcoming cooler nights.

    My single cab, became a motorised wheel barrow, holding 1100kgs, and parked under the carport, 2 weeks ago, whilst awaiting a 4 tonne firewood delivery. ;)

    Just happens, this time off year......

    Can tell you Bert its bloody cold over here ,got down to 5 degs last night .got up this morning put heater on .im really feeling the cold this year ,maybe its just the way i think but since the big shut with down there is a sudden decrease in the air pollution and now we are starting to experience weather like we used to get when i was growing up as a kid ,cold ,wet ,windy. And very unpredictable.

    Saturday and Sunday we had to sit outside @ the coffee cafe as we had the K9 (he gets a Puppycinno) with us - the wife couldn't stop shaking she was that cold even with all the layers of clothes she had on and a screaming hot cup of coffee in her hands :eek:. We get the SW & W winds so the wind chill factor is worse than actual cold ..... some people we know down the road went Toowoomba on Saturday and Temp was 4 but real feel was -1.2 and Mark said it felt colder than that :confused:
