    Many of hours spent on this **** in the last week.
    I got sick of seeing the thing sitting nothing happening with it so book week of holidays. Loaded the nugget up towed 650km from home to MORCS place.
    I left with the intention of disk brake conversion on the rear, 3.55 gear swap, sump swap and fix oil leaks paint the bonnet and inner guards.
    What actually happened was engine bay full paint, heater blank made, Delrin rear spring bushes, bonnet hinges replaced with flash billet ones (old ones fully fisted never could shut bonnet right), Wire in solid state relay for fitech controlled fuel pump, fitted 5 other relays for various shit. Was dumped into show by MORCS (cheers ****) and had a blast looking around. Loaded up sunday and left @530 and drove home.
    Will post more pics when i figure out how.

    Hi HX253Tunna.
    Wow, that's a lot more done and its' looking great. I hope your leg is much better than it was after the bike thing. Say g'day to Morcs from me and I hope him and K are going well We did chat ages ago but stopped for some reason. Anyway I'll just send my best wishes.
    Not much to report here other than I play with stuff in my shed which keeps me entertained.
    Warren.

    Cheers mate next time I talk to him Ill be sure to say gday for ya. Leg is OK depending on what I'm doing I am on a waiting list to get the metal work removed as i have snapped one of the screws that keeps the tibial nail in place. Shed is one thing I'm actually lacking ATM hence why i just don't tinker on the ute as much as i used to.

    I'm glad to hear the leg is mostly ok. One day you'll have a nice shed. It's something to look forward to. Thanks for passing on a g'day when you chat next. He's a good man.

    I have not looked at the ute since bringing it back from Esperance. Between work, kids, bikes and having the tibial nail removed time has been hard to find.
