Yeah, it's just a baby carrier these days.

Not at all appropriate for that though - rock hard suspension, solid engine mounts, and poly bushed.

Hit a wallaby a while back, luckily only cracked the bumper (and the paint, and dented the bonnet. Didn't damage the FMIC, apart from pushing back the mounts a little.

Bought some new wheels for it, but need to decide on a colour for them.

Otherwise I just drive it.

****n wildlife! When I hit a roo a few years ago it was similar. Shattered headlight, dented bonnet, pock marks in the bumper.

At least it's being driven!

This will be the third set of wheels in 18 years.

As opposed to the AZ-1 which is like 7 sets in 3, haha.


Needs some new AD08Rs for the front though, as they're a full slick now...lol

One of the CVs was getting pretty clunky, so had to throw some money at it.

So,
- drivers outer driveshaft
- both front wheel bearings
- coolant flush
- engine oil and filter
- gearbox oil + nulon goo

And it's like a new car. The front end is sooo much tighter now, it's amazing the difference.

ha, well I haven't done much to it in the last 2 years or so - so it was overdue for some attention.
