    I'm guessing your aiming at getting this to Wombat Tom (?).

    Great action pics 👍

    An Update

    Hi All,

    The Perentie has been away getting a RWC - which it sailed through! While it was at the mechanics it had some TLC:

    * Complete Filter Change (air, oil, fuel)
    * Complete Fluid Change (oil, coolant, diffs, etc)
    * Traxide light upgrade kit (relays)
    * Low Coolant alarm

    Some cosmetic stuff arrived - the correct TAC plates, and reproduction number plates:

    Next up - I had already purchased these:

    To replace these:

    Which now look like this:

    IMG_0680 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr

    I also had a go at cleaning up the mirrors:

    IMG_0675 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr

    A little bit of elbow grease later, and they look a bit better (I may paint them later):

    Now that I have the RWC - I'm off to put the Perentie on Historical Rego.

    I have a list of small jobs to do - but basically I want to keep her as standard as possible, and just get out there and enjoy her..

    Cheers,
    GG

    An Update

    Hi All,

    I've done some work on the Perentie over the last week.

    Firstly - I removed the air intake pipe that goes from the air cleaner, across into the drivers side wing. The pipe was badly split in multiple places and couldn't have been doing anything. From the looks of it, it's only really used for deep water crossings.. I am sourcing a replacement hose.

    I gave the batteries a bit of a clean up so that I could look at their condition.. Before:

    After:

    [IMG]IMG_0717 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr[/IMG]

    I am going to fill the batteries with distilled water and see if they charge.. Fingers crossed they will - but I fear that they are dead..

    Another cosmetc job - the vehicle has been hand coated with the majic Lanolin... I'm quite chuffed with the difference:

    Before:

    [IMG]IMG_0712 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr[/IMG]

    And AFTER - you can clearly see the sections that I left for comparison purposes..

    [IMG]IMG_0714 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr[/IMG]



    I plan to go over the entire vehicle on the weekend and give it a good coating..

    Cheers,
    GG.

    It also cuts down on the intake noise - as I found out years ago on the County, when the bolt on the top steering U-joint caught on it and pulled it off. (It felt like the power steering had failed!)

    A few small jobs

    Hi All,

    A few small jobs done over the weekend...

    Replaced the pipe that goes from the air filter across to the drivers side wheel arch. It's not really easy to see in this pic - just look for the new pipe!

    IMG_0835 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr

    Bought and installed the pioneer tools. When the weather is warmer, I will probably paint the handles black and the axe head green:

    IMG_0833 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr

    Pulled the spare wheel off to have a look at it's condition:

    IMG_0836 by Grey Ghost, on Flickr

    Cleaned it and ready to go back on:
