Hopefully the exhaust will turn out nice & without any hitches. Then itís onward to some finer details & a good clean up... I better charge up my video camera & work out where to mount the mic!!

The suspension lock actually worked, so no panicking when the hoist came down and no worries about being beached in the workshop!

Down a bit at the back after coming off the hoist & going back into normal position. 100m up the road & it settled to a uniform ground clearance. A little shameless advertising for Radiant Exhaust in Laverton North!

Quick trip home for her first hand wash in years before dark. Tomorrow will be hot pressure wash time and fixing up other details.
