Well the move was completed late last Fri 14th Nov. I'm still recovering after moving 2x 40' shipping containers, 10 cars, a garage full of equipment, a house full of furniture, theatre room & of course the 'normal stuff'. It took an hr today on the ph to Telstra to try & sort my internet & home ph but it's still not fixed....
Looking forward to feeling human again soon!

Don't worry Mark feeling human is only a passing fad.

Moved the newest purchase today so the body/engine/trans are finally all at the same place in dunno how long! Discovered the tailshaft is missing so I'm tracking that down tomorrow... And I found a nasty dint in the LR door which is rust free. Some careless idiot with a bobcat should be digging deep for that soon....

It will indeed be of interest to see how Mark gets on. I certainly wish him all the best on some fairly substantial future tasks. Regards Styria

Well I finally got internet access after a month of Telstra stuff ups, wall sockets that aren't connected to the street and a faulty modem!

Holidays start tomorrow and work finally begins! In the last few days I've cleaned out one car of rubbish (literally) and closed the sunroof of Red Bull manually before giving her a quick vacuum. Next it'll be a wash and off to the main shed to get organised for stripping the parts cars....

Mark, now is a good time as any - fresh enthusiasm, achievable goals, something to look forward to. You have my best wishes. I am really looking forward to your first 6.9 being mobile and storming down the road. Regards Styria
