Haven't noticed any rattles in my ej donk at all cold or hot Nate, doubt there'd be too much wrong with yours, no idea how many k's mine's done (Mattie might have a bit of an idea), but still seems in really good nick so guessing not too many. How many's yours got clocked up? The mods for the transplant in yours looks like it's coming along nicely!

G'day Wallace, the truck's been a bit of a long term resto (going on 12 years :oops: ) Dad bought it new & drove it out of the showroom in '57 & carted apples with it for 3 or 4 decades, I pulled it to bits to tidy up ready to hit the road again for its 50th anniversary......only missed the date by 10 odd years :oops: :oops:....haven't had any shed space since :lol:

& yeah, chubby makes a real good mobile scaff....recon would also be wicked for a bit of roof surfin too,.....haven't given that a go yet :shock: :lol:

Had another little road run down around the old stompin ground in the Huon Valley, still surprised at the difference the solid mounts made, a lot smoother to drive, only reason haven't fitted solids earlier was thought it would transmit a lot of vibration & noise but can hardly notice the change
A couple of pics of the run....looks like those winged things are multiplying :? :?

Funny thing about the little town of Cygnet, population only a bit over 2k, has 3 pubs, full time RSL, licensed bowls club, golf club, yacht club....no wonder a bloke doesn't mind a beer after growing up there :oops: , pic of the bottom pub

Don't mind the road runs now & again, but generally prefer the bush or beach,... it's all fun though, buggy on! :)

hehe,...yeah...seems a bit out of proportion :D ,...but headed down there again this weekend for a look around at the Hippifest...(formally known as the Cygnet Folk Festival) and everything there was packed out!
Hadn't ventured down to it for more than a decade, but last year at about the same time saw a few splitties etc heading that direction

so thought would take a peak.

For a normally quiet country town everything was packed! Good to see

Wasn't quite what I expected though, kind of thought it would still be a bit old school, but seemed very commercialised! Only saw a couple of dubs, a nice camper

Looks like it was a great day for a buggy drive. Buggies are always great (well mostly) but in the right weather they are just perfect :-).

Hehe, yeah,....needs a bit of fine tuning, need to mount the taps etc on the upper shelf or somewhere so can see the tail lights etc while driving it to the venue.....might as well mount a flashing neon sign on the roof too sayin "PULL ME OVER" :lol:
