    I only met Patrick for the first time the other week, when I was taking up his kind offer of a stub axle to collect, and wouldn’t accept any payment.

    Agree wholeheartedly with your post Tony. :)

    I really feel I owe him a brunch / lunch, or box of his favourite beverage, as a minimum, which I will pursue. ;)

    Love a Bay SC and look forward to seeing what you do with it .......I’d definitely loose the Bull Bar, its way too heavy looking for the SC. A nudge bar would look better if you feel you need the extra protection. Of course it’s your Ute, you dowhat you like

    Depends how it is mounted but if the standard bar mounts are used you will get no extra protection apart from the lower member, with an impact the bar will just bend back into the front panel/apron. Seen lots of bullbars doing more damage then an animal impact would have done. I agree with the nudge bar comment, also be a spot for lightbar which helps in Roo country. I live in an area where Roos are more than plentiful, best way of not hitting one is driving to conditions. You can be unlucky but if you drive a bit slower (Not a problem with VW), have good lights (Problem with VW) and allow plenty of room around Roos you can avoid most. People around here drive at 100+ K's at night then don't back off when Roos are on the road so there are a lot of Roo strikes. Not uncommon to drive to nearby town and see several hundred Roos in close proximity to the road.

    Engine seized day after Berry Blast, possibly oil pump failure as she had plenty of oil.
    Anyone know of a good 2ltr motor for sale IMG_1261adj.jpg
