My insanely expensive Donaldson intake pre-cleaner came yesterday. So I played around with installing it this afternoon. I need to tidy up a few things but I’m fairly happy with how it’s sitting in the guard.
Hopefully my intake filters last a lot longer now, added bonus is it’s helped muffle the horrendously loud induction noise.

Spent the last 2 weekends exploring my local area. Last weekend we went looking for some historic gold mines up in the hills. Got some superb photos thanks to my fiancé

During the week I got the winch control box and wiring installed. I went for a stealthy install, removed the solid center section of the badge so the remote can be plugged in without lifting the hood.

This weekend we took a track that’s renown for being boggy just for a bit of fun. Got a bit muddy but the Hilux drove it with ease. The track takes you through to an estuary with nice camping areas and good fishing.

After that we checked out a little walking track through a paperbark swamp that is pretty impressive.

Very cool! I love the walkway in the swamp.

I forgot how big QLD is. I thought you were further north, but there’s a lot of country between you and the tip. I’ve never been that far north in Oz, but have friends in Port Doug and would love to do a Cape York trip. Too busy now from what I’ve heard though.

It is a big place, at 6 hours north of Brisbane we are still only about 1/4 of the way up the coast. There is a lot of land when you start heading west too, I’ve seen plenty but I still have much more to explore.

Roller shutter is installed and works well.

Haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been busy living and starting a new job.

I did finally get my kmc’s fitted, and my ih8mud plates, gotta have some bling in here.🤟

Otherwise I’ve been getting out for a drive almost every weekend.
My fiancé knows to get poser shots for me.😂

I designed a drawer for the tub and had the core components fabbed up. Started marking out and drilling the bolt holes for the slides last night. The main components are all 3mm steel, with 200kg rated slides. I’m going to tie the 2 side walls together at the back with a sheet of aluminium and tie them into the side of the tub for rigidity and to fill in with storage boxes.
