Am heading further south to pick up a trailer and dolly then need to sort out some rego for them before heading even further south before heading back to the top of this wide brown land Heading south from home on the Burdekin river bridge Heading of the Barham bridge on the NSW Vic border near Kerang two two things of interest 1 it appears Molly never sleeps 2 no Pixy mirrors like on the Anthem sprouting out of the bonnet seeya Paul
  10. Swish man I'm far enough south now Wheeled her into to the not so sunny Kerang Funny thing about them Steco wheels I had tightened them a few times but when I found this last crook tread I noticed it was as tight as I could get them and the inner rim still moved The fella at the tyre service said this is common with these old cast steel wheels Dunno ?? , but the bugger ain't shifted since the rod was added to the spacer
  11. Well I would like to say all is going to plan but a few flat tyres on the float and here I sit at Coonabarrabran NSW waiting for the tyre place to weld a 3/8 ring on a spider spacer for the float Miss Molly thinks her seat is tad Small to lay down on
  12. Interior turned out real good , the Princess and wife number 2 ( the Princess's friend who bosses the same and gives me no nookie LOL) did a real good job Did 900km today with only a few minor problems and all caused sort of by a bald clown that wears glasses 1 heading south of Prosipine it started bucketing down and flicked on my new wipers and bugger me the drivers side didn't work Turns some clown didn't line the clip up right in behind the centre of the dash , Miss Molly couldn't understand the problem as see could see fine out her side next problem some fool had the fuel tanks off the truck in recent times and after 500 km the truck went all quiet like because the said fool never turned both taps on between tanks The last problem was caused again by said fool he had just put me tyres brakes on the float (low bed , low loader , low boy ) and even though they were adjusted up right when he left home after a few 8 hours or so of driving they needed readjusting , but oh no the same said fool thought he would do it first thing in the morning when it's all nice and cool Never guess who rolled thru a red light in Rockhampton ?? Needless to say after this the brakes were adjusted as soon as some where safe was found armatures lol seeya Paul
