    Hi Jethro,
    What is it with the way your LHS inlet vent panel looks in that photo:confused:. Looks like you've lost every second vertical. I like the look:D. Got a more open mouth;). Must say it looks like it gives some grunt:cool:.
    & love the Bronco addition & the Bunnings park up!
    Cheers

    Hi David,
    It does look very weird, i assure you its just the pixelation in a low res, less than 1mb image. Ill post a cliser pic soon.
    I was actually parked beside the bunnings at total tools at Castle Hill buying a 46mm socket and breaker bar so i can remove the rear wheel hubs.

    I was hoping you'd created a whole new kombi look:):D with that photo. Over sized nut:p. Get a mechanic who has the tools;).
    Cheers

    I understand Jethro's desire to buy the tool. I've got an engine stand, an ATV lift, etc, etc that I'll probably never use again, but it made the job easy at the time and if I do happen to ever need it again I've got it hakuna matata!

    Yep, im a gear junkie, love an excuse to buy a tool and that 46mm socket with 3/4 inch drive breaker bar is one big-ass tool, I once grew a hedge just so i could buy a hedge trimmer, I thought they looked like fun to use.....i may be at the problem stage!!

    Yep:). I'm guessing your workshop is just going to get bigger for the next few years;). Get what you're about tho'. Now days I'm just about using less tools rather than accumulating them:rolleyes:.

    Yup, same........you should see the list of stuff I have sitting on “wishlists” on various VW supplier sites....:rolleyes:
    I’m a big fan of using the right tool for the job !.......and LOVE learning how to do the tasks themselves.....unfortunately that is a cycle that feeds itself!
    Cheers,

    Support Crewing this weekend for Cath in the Oxfam 100km walk. She was amazing, retired at 85km's, non stop for 33hrs, left nothing on the trail, so proud of her, and the team raised $7k for Oxfam!! Meanwhile I got to spend 33hrs living out of the Kombi between checkpoints, sleeping, preping hot soup and coffee etc, had a ball!!
