    Made another under seat kick panel for the microbus . I know you can see the join , but already bought some longer length contact. Now have one for the front bench seat as well, Great for out of sight storage. 612FE139-BC8E-4994-BE7C-771A6F7293C0.jpeg C02C58AF-258C-4607-946B-FE3D7AE6DCEE.jpeg

    May not be original but neither is the Subie Motor, im not a T3 man but from a safety point of view i think they a great, and they certainly do not look out of place to me.

    Mechanic put new ball joints in:upper and lower. Cost a bit......but has made a big difference in handling and braking. I think that could be the last job.

    Hi Phil, that's decisive, :)
    Followed the T3 home last week, couldn't believe how pathetic the stop and turn lights were !
    Years ago I fitted several trail LED globes until I found the brightest, the standard filament globes had melted the internal dividers so light bled into the adjoining lenses.
    I know I can araldite thin alloy dividers into the original light units, if I change my mind.

    Should have put it in the esky.

    My mechanic was a regular mid winter camper at Thredbo each year. After one weekend I asked him how his weekend was?

    He said, “We got minus 8 overnight. Everything that wasn’t in the esky, just froze solid!”

    Eazy fit Col,
    Light units are from ebay at $40 a pair delivered and are close enough to the same size as the originals, drilled four 9/64 th holes in the
    surrounding frame, used the frame to spot the location of the holes to be drilled in the VW body then drilled four 2.2 mm holes these are
    about 3 to 4 mm from the original captive speed nuts.
    The original VW lights will cover the holes if I decide to go back. I crimped red spade connectors onto the wire tails and simply pushed them into the
    correct circuits of the VW tail light socket.

    Took the SC for a drive to purchase a rare 1040kg of firewood, according to the weighbridge.

    I say rare, coz I went for the same journey on Saturday, to two different yards, only to find they were both empty! :eek:

    A 3rd supplier I know of in Queanbeyan NSW, now only has unseasoned wood for sale, to stack away ready for next winter, however it is illegal to sell in the ACT.

    Asking questions, apparently two factors has caused this unusual shortage:

    1. Lots more wood was bought in the last few months by people looking to be in COVID lockdown and working from home;

    2. A lot of areas that supply firewood, were badly burnt in the last shocker of a fire season, and haven’t been able to supply normal quantities. :(

    Anyway, these pics could probably have gone onto the “What Made You Happy” thread.......;)

    Great to see them doing what they were built for but I'm sure it was carefully loaded
