    Lockdown/Stay-in-place situation, What are you planning to do?

    So what is everybody planning to do if they end up in a Lockdown/Stay-in-place situation.

    I am just starting to catchup with orders after three weeks of the flu.

    But I work from home anyway, so nothing will change much.

    What are the rest of you contemplating and is there any suggestions for an Internet Group Participation of some form, with others on AULRO or the likes?

    Unlike many other forums, there is a pretty high intelligent level on AULRO so see if we canít come up with something.

    Well...um...

    It's looking like the car's autobox needs a valve block job. I've done 2 of them in the past (BMW ZF 4HP22) and it's a long winded fiddly job. I want to put the SLS back into the D2. The camper needs a few mods to the electrics and a diesel heater installed. That lot, for a while at least, should keep me away from doing the back yard gardens which are an overgrown mess of grass (it looks neat and tidy but really isn't).

    Then of course there's "The List" that my wife is armed with....

    Trouble I have with this (kit waiting in the shed) is I donít know what separator plate I need until I have it apart and I donít want to find that the gearbox place is closed or doesnít have/canít get one. If I could order it beforehand I would. Supposedly you canít be sure until you get it apart. I wonder if I could buy one of each and return one? Ooo, now Iím thinking :-)

    Yep,i got that today,as i was relaxing looking at AULRO

    The company finances apparently are first on the list,i hate finances.Then our private stuff.

    I was more interested on getting sorted to head out to the property.

    Reloading some ammo was top on my list

    And leaving the boys to sort out the business,everything should run fine,what could possibly go wrong?

    Well I'm going to try and get a bit more progress on George as I havn't been able to do much of late.
    I have everything I need to finish my engine build, Bosch ignition upgrade, and a few other bits for the engine bay.
    Then if we're still shut down after all that I can get stuck into the body work and paint as I have all I need to do that as well.
    So I have enough to keep me busy for a while
    Plus I'll also be helping the wife with schooling our daughter from home

    I really hope your list is a short one but I suspect not...

    The company finances apparently are first on the list,i hate finances.Then our private stuff.
    I hate that stuff with a passion.

    I was more interested on getting sorted to head out to the property.

    I have the same feeling about doing the gearbox valve block. I keep thinking "I've done it before. How hard can it be ? What could possibly go wrong ?"

    Anyone heading to north QLD,Cape area,you won't get far past Cape Tribulation.

    They have moved the original cut off line a lot further south.
