  1. The poor (cheap) mechanic pays twice. Unless he's dead. One thing we often get complained at price wise at work is seatbelts. We make stuff all money off them, yet so many people don't seem to comprehend they have to be tested/compliant etc all for your safety. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  2. Looking good! I need a set of those window trims for my wagon. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  3. I understand them driving with extra care due to the fact they're transporting live animals in a box on wheels. I don't understand why that seems to make them think they're exempt for providing courtesy to other road users. When I tow a car behind me I make sure to let as many people pass as possible, when I can. When supervising a learner driver (or when I was on my Ps and restricted to 80km/h) I made sure to pull over to stop holding up other road users. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  4. Here's the video - if the link will work https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10216055236238291&id=1370809622 Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  5. I think (and I reckon Sparky Dave will agree) that keeping it original(ish) is the way to go. If it was just a normal XG sure Barra it, but being a very tidy Outback, they're not exactly common. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  6. If finish the XE on that list? [emoji14] Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  7. @robbie bit of a site issue here Apparently there's an issue with the security check on the sign up page - nothing that can be checked/filled in on the check. Couple of screenshots for reference - both mobile and desktop, and one where I tried to make an account as a test. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  8. Close, right bit of coastline. Preservation Bay, just before Penguin Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  9. Love the way you can get such different colours from the paint, Edge really is a great colour. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  10. Burnie and back today - 650kms, still got almost 100km left according to the dash. Fuel gauge hasn't even dipped into the red zone yet. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  11. That's about 150-200km more than I get from a tank of town driving in my G6E. Pretty impressive, especially as that Ecoboost motor is almost on par with the power output of the NA 4.0L Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  12. 5L of fuel would barely cover the bottom of the tank in these [emoji23] before I sorted the fuel sock issue with mine it'd struggle under 1/4 tank. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  13. I'd look at any of the 2T or 2.5T or higher ones from Repco/SCA/AutoBarn, any smaller than that and you'll find they don't have enough to height. I have a 2.5T full alloy one I bought a few years back at an agricultural show, lift is just under 500mm and even that's barely enough to get the jackstands underneath. Avoid anything with a solid one piece front wheel as they get caught on the smallest of things, four proper wheels is what you want. We almost always have at least one 2T or higher jack on sale in our catalogue, I imagine SCA etc are the same. Problem with one like this is the lowish height lift of only 375mm, you'd possibility still need timber of something between jack and car to be able to get stands underneath.

  14. Tassie is nice, definitely worth a good long visit. Are you worried about being abducted or something? Or that you'll like it so much you'll stay? Let us know when your down and we can catch up at some point! Which vehicle are you planning on bringing? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  15. Added quite a few on the way back from Burnie - could've done a lot more if I had of planned the trip a bit better Burnie Fire Station Heybridge Fire Station Penguin Fire Station Ulverstone Fire Station Devonport Fire and Ambulance Station Tarleton Fire Station Latrobe Fire Station Elizabeth Town Fire Station Westbury Fire Station Whitemore Fire Station Bracknell Fire Station Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
