all this rain won't be helping, gets pretty damn slippy after a bit of rain and takes a while to come good.
The last time I was there was mid summer, and the noise from the cicadas was off the chart, but very cool none the less!
can't wait to get a few more pump tracks up and running, I hope our...
I don't get down there as often as I would like, but I saw on one of the CCoast Council pages that they were planing on building a Pump Track at the Ourimbah trails
Does anybody ride there regularly or knows what stage they are up to with it...PM me if you want to keep it off the radar
hence the advice on the ones that you can lock the latch down to be double locked with a padlock.
I had one of the normal Tbar latches on one of my box setups , and the grubs simply slipped a long ring spanner over the handle and twisted, the latch busted at the shaft and simply fell to pieces...
there's one thing shit canning tradies because they are rough or too expensive but showing no real evidence that you could do a better job, and then there is you...you have done some amazing work, and not rushed anything..well done, you deserve the kudos!
Back on topic.....god forbid
if you decide to go down the road of tray mounted boxes, go either steel or thick aluminium, and try to stay away from the twin latch boxes and go for the single with the internal locking bar that pushes out both sides, one that can be double locked with a padlock.
I used to own one of the first generation Foton Tunland utes, it was a great car but the build quality was typically chinese...Mechanically the thing was unstoppable..had a Cummins TD engine fitted up to a Getrag Gbox, all Bosch electrics, Borg Warner transfer case and Dana diffs (all well know...
what's the point in that...would just get infiltrated by non-tradie heroes spruiking shit about how good they are , and we all charge too much for the skills and knowledge that we all use on a daily basis!
as a wise man said to me once....Learn the Trade, not the Tricks of the Trade~!
I asked my boss last year that a small truck would be useful, fit it out with a small Hiab or similar...he frowned at the idea
too hard to park, cost more in rego, shit resale as the market is much smaller for a LT, and utes are much easier to get a hold of spares and repairs
