    Yeah I noticed that. I also had problems colliding with the corners. Took the opportunity to fix that too.

    It's been another busy day today.
    So much so that I'm going to do two posts to get round the photo limit.

    I dragged out my no5 trailer and coated the tub with lanolin spray.
    While that was drying i lined the tub with 8mm recycled tire rubber and cut to size.

    My mate showed up with perfectly bent 6mm wall pipe, and I shortened it... a lot...
    Fitted and waterproofed canvas from Robco Products.

    Packed a bit more grease into the bearings while I was at it too.

    Also found some 3/8 bolts to make bung plugs with.

    Then I noticed I had scored a bit of mould in the vehicle canvas.

    A bit of elbow greaee with a stiff brush and then some watered down white vinegar to treat it.

    Time will tell if the treatment advice is good.

    Dropped a few hundred on parts this week for the perentie. Ive had the work ute and its a perfect time to have the landy off the road for maintenance. List of things i got were..
    Steering uni joints, mine were absolutely cactus.
    All suspension bushes
    Tie rod ends
    Drop arm rebuilt kit
    New flange and seal for the sals
    headlights
    Indicators front and side
    Parkers
    Ball joint for rear a frame and probably some other stuff that i cant remember. Ordered all parts throughout Lrdirect.
    Also went to isuzu derrimut yesterday to get an oil pressure switch that was leaking badly, while i was there i picked up 2 oil filters, a fuel filter, rocker cover gasket and some little rubber seals for the bolts (planning to do valve clearances this week) new thermostat and gasket and some premixed coolant. Noticed a few issues lately which prompted me to get the stuff before they snowball. One was the leaking oil switch. Also noticed coolant in the reservoir has disappeared. Then yesterday i took the banjo bolt out from the fuel pump and found this


    Looks like flaked paint from inside of jerry cans. So I'll be flushing the fuel system and taking a good look at the tank

    Hi All,

    Just got back from a week in the Murchison River area east of Kalbarri Western Australia. Beautiful this time of year. The RFSV and No5 trailer fitted with my roof top tent worked a treat. Had a great time just crawling through the amazing country on offer out there and making camp in some very pretty areas. It was the first time I had towed the No5 in serious 4WD country and I found out what most of you all know, that they are great tough little trailers and so easy to un-hitch and wheel around like a wheel barrow. The gearing on the RFSV really showed how well designed these vehicles are traversing effortlessly through both soft sand and rock outcrop country.

    With a warm smile on my face, I take my hat off once again to the design team tasked with the job of 'Project Perentie' who created such a wonderful vehicle. I feel very fortunate to own one.

    A couple of images from the trip below.

    Regards Warrick.

    licensing rfsv

    Finally after (2 yrs putting off), got the rfsv licensed today, went to a rural inspection centre hoping for mercy...what a nightmare, the DOT transport mob, had this poor inspector/bloke confused as well, they emailed him a two page guide...on more law-full requirements , based on NT rules for WA... had to strip a lot of gear off....eg, tool bonnet brackets, side carry baskets, blackout switch,wanted the rear spare wheel assembly off..(couldn't get that off as it was welded..hahaha)...roller over bars needed 50mm padding, selt belts needed an engineers report..for the top mounting assembly, but let it go at the end....as this chap tried his best to talk to them(DOT)....

    anyway, was thinking of putting everything back one day, but I don't know if it is ok to do this...wonder what the police will say?

    a few years ago, I think it was easier to do this than today....they have really clamped down....whats the point of the army auctions then?

    notice my first real drive back home, its needs better road tyres, as my back is done now....wore ear muffs as well...
    I think I was getting around 15 lt/100 km's...need to verify this ....I thought perhaps it would get at least 11/100.

    nice pics/work Warrick, what did you get.. litres/km's ..on your trip, does those tyres improve road handling...


    thanks robbo

    Great news Robbo that you got your RFSV licensed. Bad news that it such a nightmare to do it. It sounds like it was easier a couple of years ago when I did mine. I drive around with the baskets on and tools on when I am heading out of town. So far so good. I did get mine licensed with everything on except the dickie seat which was the only thing I was asked to remove before it could be licensed. I haven't put it back in as it works better for me with out it for what I do anyway.

    Yes the Wolf rims and BF Goodrich's are a great combination and improved the road handing, comfort and noise on my RFSV. Not cheap to do but if you are going to drive it a lot I think it is worth doing. I use mine a s a daily drive as well so it made sense to me to have a little more comfort. I get around 11 litres per 100kms. I only really sit on 90-95 kms an hour though.

    Looking forward to seeing yours out on the road. It will be good to have another one getting around in the local area. One more image below from the Murchison trip below.

    Regards Warrick.
