The blast cabinet makes those arms look brand new, beats wire brushing. What rate do you charge the use of the cabinet at.

Yeah the aqua blast cabinet makes it a lot more fun to rebuild. I don't hire it out but I happily let my mates use it for a small donation to my wifes drinking fund. :D

Wow it seems like just the other day when I was talking about getting a Manxter done for Fraser Island thinking it was months and months away, now some buggy guy I know let me in on the fact it was only 60 Days till we were booked on a Barge ... man that is not long at all ...

Luckily for me my wife is AWESOME and has given me a Buggy Pass to remove any blame I may have thought of pushing her way if I failed to complete it. Like most things in life having a supportive wife makes a lot of difference.

So with that in mind I did an all nighter and when I came out from eating breakfast, or was that dinner .. I had a smile on my face as the trailer was loaded and it was off to get the braided stainless brake and clutch lines sorted ...

Trailer is Dyno's Custom Buggy Trailer he built for his SWB Mk1 Supa Sports. It just fits the Manxter.

I have a bigger tandem setup but it is full of shelves for the back storage shed and Ben has been to lazy to come over and help me unload them. :twisted:

The Baby JD is not mine, it was left there by my offsider once he had finished dumping leaves into my shed as teh trailer was to high for him to reach and he figures that I left enough crap around so it was fine for him to do :lol:

As for over kill ... with a comment like that you have not seen him drive :roll:
